Well, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit when I say obsolete but long posts are becoming a thing of the past in my mind. We already have a million things to do in a day. Who has time to sit and read a long post? Not me.
You might have ADD
According to Answers.com
Given a world population that is estimated by the US census bureau at just under 7 billion people that would mean that a reasonable estimate is about 200 million to 400 million have ADD world wide. As mentioned above, no where near that many people have been diagnosed and are being treated.
That’s a lot of people! No offense is intended anyone suffering from attention deficit disorder, my point is, I personally have a short attention span and I haven’t been diagnosed with ADD. I like short and sweet and easy to read. I would bet most people like short and sweet.
So, figuring the people left in the world that aren’t like me and aren’t ADD, you have about 10-20% of the world that like to read long posts. My guess is they are professors, librarians or lawyers. So, if your blog isn’t targeted at these 3 groups then keep it short and sweet.
All you need is 5 minutes a day to get started. Keep it short and sweet!
