I’ll try to make this short.
I think my blog posts are way too long.
I actually write a great many more posts than actually make it onto this blog. Maybe you have noticed that many if not most of my posts tend to be fairly lengthly by most blog standards.
Take a post about Firefox I am working on for example.
A few weeks ago I started working on a post about my favorite Firefox extensions. Now, I could just make a list of them and leave it at that. But no, not me. I have to write a post that takes up several pages of the notebook I wrote it in. This post will take me an hour to type in. After that, I still need to create graphics and add the links. I am looking at several hours of work just to publish a post that I have already written.
Add to this the fact that I can be lazy sometimes.
Especially when I have already done a lot of the work and still have the fiddly stuff to do. You can see how this is going. If I ever want you to see that post (and many others suffering the same fate) I need to adjust the way I blog and publish posts.
So, look for shorter posts here from now on.
This way, I can do my writing with pen and paper, the way I think best. Then I can publish it without too much trouble. I should be able to get more of my scribbles out for the world to see. One small post at a time.
Now my problem is I need to break up that Firefox extension post.
Do you as a reader prefer shorter or longer posts?
Not just here but at other blogs.
