The long and short of it
Seriously the general consensus from the comments I've read is that shorter is better - people are busy and don't have time to read lengthy posts, especially when they visit numerous blogs. So where does that leave me, when I can't say anything quickly and consisely, and can I help it that I like to let the words flow?
I'm in two minds about this because yes I sometimes prefer shorter posts but I still want to get something from reading the post. Well written, lengthy posts which are interesting will still hold my attention. It's as much about the way it's written as it is the subject, length to me is secondary (with blog posts at least). Can I write that, of course I can - because it's my blog.
I'm attempting to keep this post brief - I can do that when I put my mind to it. However, I'm providing a link to a post I found this week and which was beautifully worded, it's worth a look and it starts like this

Does it feel small and insignificant? Does if feel like you are really doing (being) something worthwhile, worthy?

That's my 'short' post for today.
