How Long is Too Long?

By: Guest | January 20, 2011 |

Ingrid Abboud aka ‘Griddy‘ is a whole lot of things with a ridiculous amount of interests.

Get your mind out of the gutter people! I’m talking about posts and comments. Jeez!

When the fabulous Aunt Gini (editor’s note: She calls me this because of the Christmas video with my nieces and nephew) asked me to guest post on Spin Sucks, I was ecstatic. But I’ll be honest – I panicked a bit as well.

You see, I have this tendency to ramble – I mean write long, witty and insightful pieces – and I knew I’d have to abide by a certain word limit – which is understandable but poses quite the challenge for me. I’m at 90 words so far, phew!

I know you’re dying to count, so go ahead – I’ll wait.

I told you so!

I panicked for another reason as well. I knew I’d have to step it up and present her with something that was up to the standards of her intelligent and well-spoken audience (editor’s note: Don’t let her kiss up you!).

You see, she kinda brilliantly tooted me in one of her super #FollowFriday posts so I couldn’t possibly let her down with a “non-entertaining or below average post”.

I’m not kissing ass folks. I’m just telling it like it is.

Defying the Norm

I’ve often heard bloggers say it’s best not to exceed 500 or 1,000 words so that you don’t lose the attention of your readers, and that shorter posts often get the message across better. And although these are very true, I beg to differ – at times.

My last guest post for Traffic Generation Cafe was around 2,800 words. Yet somehow it got over 110 retweets. Another that I wrote for Famous Bloggers was close to 1,500 words. It generated 110 comments and was RT’d almost 300 times.

I’m not implying those numbers are something to brag about, they’re not. But they’re definitely decent. I must have done something right to retain the attention of my audience.

Have you ever read one of Glen Allsop’s posts? They may be as rare as peace in the Middle East, but they’re as long as treaties as they often surpass 2,000 words. I for one, don’t want them to end. They’re insightful, idiot-proof, and loaded with great examples. He has about 11,000 subscribers that agree with me.

Could it be that we underestimate the attention spam (not a typo) of our readers? For these are three times longer than the proposed “norm”.

Does the writing style not play an integral role?

I know when Seth Godin writes 50 words including “the” and “it” people listen and he gets retweeted a gazillion times. And all Brian Clark has to say is “Boo” and the blogosphore goes into an RT frenzy. But here’s the thing…you’re not either of those two “influential” chaps. But if you are – in my very fake French accent…“well hello there, I’m Ingrid and this is Gini’s blog, please comment, RT,  and connect” icon wink How Long is Too Long? GP for SPIN SUCKS.

Presentation is Everything

Much like a meal at a restaurant, or the design of a website – presentation is everything.

If you were to visit a site that was shabby-looking, would it inspire you to browse through it? I didn’t think so.

If I had started this post using a dissertation-like style and a monotonous tone, would you have read this far? Yup, didn’t think so either.

So like I said, presentation is key.

The way we present our words and the voice we use, determine whether we capture our readers attention or not. Ever hear the saying, “it’s not size that matters, but the motion of the ocean”? Well, your blog is the ocean and your words are the motion. It’s how you move people that counts.

You can write 200 words that are full of drivel or 2,000 that are loaded with insight! It’s not the length that counts but how you manage to remain interesting and captivate your readers till the end.

Gini’s posts are usually highly intuitive, informative, and to the point – but they’re generally no longer than 500 words.

If I’m able to hook you with intelligent and magnetic words from the first paragraph, you’ll want to read on – regardless of how “long” it looks.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying to write a long-winded article that takes three pages to get to the point – on the contrary. I’m just telling you it’s how you get to the point that will leave an impression. It’s how you break it up using short paragraphs that don’t scare the Bejeesus out of your readers. It’s how you talk to your audience. Because you want to talk to them in an engaging manner and not dictate to them.

Me, My Comments, and I

The same goes for comments.

I’ve come to be known around the blogosphere (“my friendosphere of bloggers”) as the girl who leaves novel-lengths comments. But are they thoughtless or do they actually add value somehow? Obviously, the latter.

“Gini and Danny, I swear to you if you’re smirking or coughing here…I’ll…Oh, who am I kidding?! Laugh away lol.”

Personally, I would much rather gasp pleasantly at a long comment than see a simple drive-by that says, “hey, great post”. I’m interested to hear what readers have to share that could enrich my own views. Why? Because if and when I have something to say, it most probably means the post is deserving of more than a simple “good job”.

We have news releases that limit us to a page or less and Twitter cut our musings to 140 characters. So why impose another limit on our personal thoughts on our own blog?

Write intelligently, wittily, insightfully, amusingly, respectfully, numerically, resourcefully, or commandingly…and people will listen. They will take the time to read if your thoughts are well-written and worthwhile.

So How Long is Too Long?

Is 1,000 words all that our brains can handle? Would you not give an article the time of day if were 3,000 words? Okay, 10,000 – maybe not!

My rule is that there is no rule!

Write what you want. If you want to be clear and succinct with a short news type post – YAY. If you’d rather opt for a longer, more comprehensive post – then go for it! Do what feels right for you and your writing style.

I was initially set on backing this piece with solid resources from probloggers to prove my point. But…

Had I told you from the start that Darren Rowse averages 1000 + words per post but Chris Brogan about 500, or that Steve Pavlina writes over 2000 words but Leo Babauta around 600 – then you might not have bothered reading till the end and would have simply concluded for yourselves that it’s“your blog, your rules – mix it up”.

This post has a grand total of 1,139 words (editor’s note: Uh…more like 1,254).

Was it dreadfully painful to read? Rhetorical of course!

I’d love to hear your thoughts – and guess what? I’ll probably reply with a not so short answer to your not so short comment.

Editor’s Note: I really wanted to cut this down, but she’s right…I was captivated. Darn her!

Ingrid Abboud aka ‘Griddy’ is a whole lot of things with a ridiculous amount of interests. For one, she’s a social media enthusiast with a tremendous passion for writing and blogging. She’s also a pretty cool copywriter but a more serious MarCom Consultant. But most of all, she’s the proud owner and driving force behind nittyGriddy.com – A Kinda Social Media Journal with Net News & more.

Size doesn’t matter! Seth gets his message across in 50 words, great for him, that’s his style. You inform us in 1139, that is awesome. We read books which are hundreds of pages long and we don’t complain, unless they are dull and un-captivating. I never understood people who are post length nazies- the rule is there is no rule.

1254 Gini?I only count every word once :))

You made me laugh with Brian’s “Boo.” :)

Godin can create a total brain-bomb in 50 words. Wish I could. But the first rule of not sucking at blogging (or writing or content or social media or whatever you call it) is to learn You Are Not Seth Godin.

@SoniaSimone Whhhhaaaaat?! But what if we want to be Seth Godin?! :) I remember the first book I read of his, I thought, “How can anyone get away with this?” But he does. Quite well.

@johnfalchetto I am a post-length Nazi! Ha! We only ask that guest bloggers keep it to 500 words because, well, not everyone is as entertaining as crazy here. I love that she inserts conversations with her friends because she knows they’re reading. She’s a nut case, which is why I let her write TWELVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FOUR WORDS! I guess ex-Pats living in France don’t have to abide by the English numerals. :)

Well griddy, at the risk of ticking you off, I have nothing else to add but : hey, great post !!
There are times when there’s not much to add and this is one of them …
Well I’ll actually just add one thing : griddy, i’ve recently discovered blogging and you are my FAVOURITE !! (and one other thing) you look stunning !!

Thanks Ingrid, as one who tends to blabber on and on in comments, and who finally started a blog, I appreciate the validation. Perhaps my long-winded gusts of monologue may be able to create the dialogue I am looking for just as easily as some of the great “5 steps to whatever” posts I have seen. I’ll probably never be as eloquent, or fun, as “Aunt Gini,” but I’m hoping I’ll find my voice to express what it is that I want to say that captivates some of those who stop by to visit my blog.

Love love LOVE the post, Griddy! You know, this is something I’ve been finding as well, especially now that I write/publish on three different properties on a regular basis (don’t worry, I’m not going to pimp them here). That is actually a great writing exercise as well: on my own blog, I write as I want (though I do edit myself, as well as my guest bloggers… hey, that’s my job for them, right?) and some of the most “successful” posts – or at least those that seem to draw the most engagement are the ones that are easily $1,200… Read more »

Phew, I finally made it!
First and foremost, I’m honored to have been featured here and am grateful to you for this opportunity. What I mean to say by that is ,”How frickin’ awesome do I feel now huh?” lol

I had a good time writing this post (not as in dancing and stuff although I am now), even thought I had a panic attack when I realized I had slightly (cough) surpassed the word limit you generally have here.

Thanks again for everything Gin.
Sorry but gotta go answer some great comments and do some fabulous engaging down below ;).

If time were not constraining my verboseness, you would be treated with a well-crafted novella of a comment here, but because I am pressed, allow me to say this: some blogs deliver nuggets of useful information. I read, analyze, and implement those which I deem useful. Other blogs, albeit equally as instructive, tell a story. They present information in an interconnected format where once you become a loyal reader, it’s hard to distinguish where one post ends and another begins. You start reading and wonder, “how did I get to this point… it’s like I’m already in the middle of… Read more »

As always, a great blog post. I think you definitely have to consider your audience when blogging and know your community, as it’s obvious you do. If you’re topic and community is more cerebral and apt to deep thought and conversation, then 500 words may never satisfy what they’re looking for. On the other hand, if you’re simply reporting news or reviewing a new iPhone app, 2,500 words may be overkill for your readers. I also think you’re point on the QUALITY of the post in question. If something is 5,000 words but about a topic I’m passionate about and… Read more »

@SoniaSimone Hi Sonia,I’m glad I was able to get you to chuckle a bit :). That’s always a great thing and it means I’ve accomplished part of my objective with this post. Godin can indeed write a mere 50 or a 100 words and somehow have each one of them mean something. He could probably also write a bunch of nothingness if he wanted to and would still get the attention that others hope for. As for me, I’m Ingrid Abboud – far far being a Seth Godin or a Brian Clark, but I’m me and I have my own… Read more »

I’m the first to tell writers to “warm up on your own time” but then, sometimes the preamble works. It’s about style, substance and interest.

Nice post, but waaaay too long 😛 In my opinion, too keep it short, when we write something we should always try to find the best “length to info racio”. By this i mean, always try make our writing compact, direct and interesting.Even if we have a more “intelectual” audience, the “racio” should always be kept in mind. If we really have “trouble” keeping it short, we can always write it all down and then go back and try to “zip” it, making room for all the other things we wanted to say but didn’t, due to the length of… Read more »

Oh and Gini….Mabrouk means congrats in Arabic :). We also say it when you buy something new – like – “hey Gini, Mabrouk on your new shoes” lol ;).

Ingrid, you can write even 10.000 words, I will still read it. Nothing is too long if there is a point to it. If I am trying to explain something and can’t do it in 2.000 words, I am sure gonna write 3.000.Rules are there to be broken and “short post rule” is one of those. Thanks!
