Why long posts are obsolete

Leave a comment

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!
