Why do most blog posts only consist of a few paragraphs? Does a blog post of this length really exhaust all analytical outlets of thought? Or to the contrary, is a shorter blog post more effective precisely because it conveys a singular point before regurating itself?
Also, the blogger must keep in mind the audience they are trying to reach. For example, if I wanted to write “for the general public”, I would have to write about topics broadly, without loosing myself in the details. Likewise, if I wanted to write about something very specific, I would probably not have a large audience.
I think shorter blog posts can be effective, but I think it points to “an attention span deficiency”. You should only post something that you are proud of. Quality > Quantity.
My experiences in Argentina and at the law firm have pushed me to reanalyze the way I express myself in the written form. Also, I think even if you are writing about a specific topic, it is important to incorporate ideas from many differente academic fields. This is probably a result of the “liberal arts” educational foundation that I received at U.Pitt.
One of the most exciting parts about blogging is seeing you actually views my posts! Since I began, these are the “views” I have received.
