Blog series questions – 1

Rory is the host of this new series

The Questions ….

Are you ‘mostly’ a short content or a long content reader and how many words within those defines can you comfortably read per post?

I usually like short posts, poems, or stories. But if the content is interesting, I can read on. Given the number of blogs that I follow, I am always short on time. So if it’s a very long but interesting post, I’ll save it to read later.

How many blogs do you read per day?

It’s hard to put a number on it but at a guess, anything from 25-40 posts a day. I follow many blogs, out of those some are notified in my reader, and these I read every day. Others I have to look for when I have time.

Are you a short, long, or varying length content writer, and if so what is your preferred length for a post that you create?

I am a short content writer. At most 200 – 300 Words. If it’s a poem then a few lines are the most I’ll write. I think too long a post can distract the reader and will be counterproductive.

What kind of relationship do you have with the blogs that you follow – in so far as Like Only, Read-only, Interact only, Comment only, or a combination of all?

I read all the posts I am notified of. Out of these, there are many bloggers whose posts I would definitely read and comment on. I consider them friends and as friends, I want to let them know that I visited.

While there are some who I do read and like, but I don’t comment on all their posts as there is no reciprocal interaction.

There is no comment only posts. If I read, I do like it and then comment.

  1. You read a lot of posts! I don’t read as many and don’t always comment but will “like” what I read whether or not I “liked” it because I want the blogger to know I read the post. It would be nice if there wss an option to click on that was simply “read” so it wouldn’t be a false “like”.

  2. Interesting answers Sadje, l may steal one of your answers and create a question next week from it once again. however, for the moment can l draw reference to this line?

    “I think too long a post can distract the reader and will be counterproductive.”

    In what way?

    1. When a post is too lengthy, it is hard to keep the attention of many readers. Some people have a knack to say what they are saying in an interesting way, to keep the reader glued to their writing , while others just lose them. Most long winded content does that for me. Not you because you’ve got that gift of gab!

  3. I agree with Patricia… I wish there was a “read” option cuz I don’t always like what I’ve read, but I want the writer to know I’ve read it.
    That way too, the “Like” button would have more meaning.
    It’s always about time, isn’t it? We all need to get those time turner things that Heromine has in the Harry Potter movie😉💕

    1. Read button would be cool. But I don’t think any social media sites has one. Like is to me a sign that someone has read the post, except those likes which come in a span of 10 seconds on 25 posts. Lol! 😂

  4. #1 I know have a very short attention span so the shorter the post the better. I save the long ones until I have a clear mind and can concentrate.
    #2 I try my best to read 5 a day
    #3 I do my best to make my blogs short and to the point
    #4 Right now there are only 2 or 3 blogs that I interact with in terms of liking them and responding
