    Mmmmm – I need to write shorter posts sometimes – tend to be a bit on the long side also…..


  • I have trouble being to wordy myself at times.. I don’t always want them to be short and sweet, but I have to keep from rambling too.. Kinda like this comment..

  • Very creative. I’m afraid of doing posts that are too short though because of Google panda knocking down whole sites because of a couple bad posts. From what I understand.

  • I couldn’t agree more. Writing short is an art, and it improves your writing, your message, and your response. After all, everything written either informs or influences; writing short has a better chance of doing both.

  • Hi is this for just getting a do-follow back-link from Darren.I am still wonder how could it permitted here for guest post.

  • What about Search Engine rankings? I have read that a post about 300- 500 words will be good for search engine rankings.

  • Great post! This is definitely something I will be trying out in the future… being wordy is always a downfall of mine. I’m so used to writing novels and screenplays, that when I write a blog post, it turns into quite an exercise! :)

  • I’ll definitely take your advice on this one. Most people have short attention spans and are just skimming posts, anyway. Thank you.
