W is for Word Count

We're almost to the end of A-Z Challenge! I can't believe I've come this far, never in my life did I dream that I'd ever do this! I'm haven't been keeping up as well as I've wanted to, but I'm proud of what I have accomplished.

Moving on to today's blogging tip, word count.

How long should one's blog post be? I've found that my shorter posts actually get more comments. Sometimes I ramble, but thank goodness I also schedule my posts in advance or I might be long winded.

Here's my general rule:

No posts longer than 300 words.

For people who visit lots of blogs, this is important. Much can be conveyed in very few words.

It also helps to break up what you say in small paragraphs so your readers don't feel overwhelmed.

Lists and bullet points help people who skim. (Even though we don't like it, lots of people skim) with lists you can get the main points across easily.
