  1. [ Smiles ] There has been a huge debate for years over whether or not bloggers should publish short posts.

    The main thing is understanding your audience. It is up to the blogger to know if their audience appreciates short posts.

    In my case, I cater for people who love to read long posts. The truth is, that there are people who enjoy reading long-form content.

    Also, search engines love long-form content too.

    I fully agree with the other pointers that you highlighted in your blog post!

    1. Agreed but not without an argument as to whether long posts blogs are mostly successful. It all lies in someone’s chosen niche; there are some niche that require quite short posts while others might require longer posts. Nonetheless, the length of a post is determine by its purpose not just by the people that read it. For instance, most blogs that teaches people how to do stuffs have concise articles (mostly listicles) whereas blogs that tell stories of individuals, stuffs and events have mostly longer posts.
      Moreover, everybody love listicles. There is hardly one that doesn’t.

      1. I will very much advise new bloggers to start with short posts as long posts take time to write. And since consistency is one of the rule to success, one would be more consistent writing short posts as they are easier and take less time to write. Thanks.

      2. [ Smiles ] Technology blogs are usually longer, since they are more tutorial-oriented.

        Also, there are blogs that specialise in blogging advice; they do long-form content; for example: Neil Patel’s blog and Ryan Biddulph’s blog.

        However, I will reiterate, that it all boils down to what your audience prefer; if they like short posts do not provide them with long posts and vice versa.
