I love to read. I love to read books. Books are lengthy and they are often lengthy because there is a plot, background, characterizations, dialogue, etc.
But if it's not bound or stitched in a book, I don't like reading anything thing else that's lengthy . Long blog posts bore me to death. I always find myself skipping over paragraphs to GET TO THE POINT. I think we feel using a bunch of superfluous words or anecdotes makes us sound smarter or deep when it's really unnecessary. . .see what I did there?
Unfortunately we're living in a 140 character or less society and you can often lose people (and their attention span) in details that don't add anything to your post. Tell us what we need to know, why we need to know it and how it will benefit us. Thank you and good night!
