Lets take a look on pros and cons of Short and Long Posts:
Shorts posts are a great way to quickly reveal your thoughts to other people. However, they often leave some things unsaid that really should have been noted in the post.
Time is something everyone wants these days, but most people can’t seem to find free time. You could be busy with a job, your personal life, and of course taking care of your blog. The idea of writing a short post on your blog is the best thought in the world.
I see short posts look like rushed posts, and rushed posts lead to spelling and grammar mistakes, incorrect information, and some other gruesome things. While your time may be important, you should realize that your blog is important and handing out bad information to your loyal readers is not a good thing. It can especially be bad depending on the niche you’re in!
It’s true, posts with shorter length will definitely be read more than a long post. What’s better than quick, informative read? Besides, there will be the group of your readers who are lazy and are just looking for those short posts. Why not feed their lazy little appetites?
This is a common question you will be asking yourself after a fairly short post I’m sure. It is pretty likely that you may forget a key point of idea in your post if it’s really short. Beforehand, you should map out your key ideas and summarize them really intelligently for your readers.
Long posts are packed full of information. While some things can get repeated, there are plenty of lengthy articles that cover tons of great points in them.
The purpose of your blog is to inform your readers about the niche you’re in right? What better way to do that then have a long post chopped full of great information? You have no boundaries as to how many words it takes to describe something, and you probably have plenty of time to cover every single point of the topic.
You could be on paragraph 154, and say to yourself “I forgot to mention something!”. The unfortunate fact however is you already talked about it in paragraph 68, but you probably forgot.
It wouldn’t be too hard to stray off topic in the post either. You can go from talking about cats, to talking about how to change the oil in your car in one sentence I bet. It just takes one measly little comparison to get you started. Be careful of that.
A good blog post is a blog post that gets readers to think about what you have said. If you leave them with questions, and provide in depth information, it will cause them to want to find things wrong with what you have said and make their own opinions about it.
While this is not always a bad thing, it’s an annoying thing. Short posts will probable just require one read, but longer ones will require more.
