I started growing Location 180 during a time where it was all about the “epic blog post.”
The longer, and the more detailed, the better.
I still fall into this trap, and assume that if I write a 3,000 word blog post, it’s going to be shared all over the internet.
Not the case.
Sometime’s that “epic” post your writing also means “bloated” and “boring.
So how long should your blog post be?
It should be long enough to get your point across. No more, no less.
Short blog posts can be useful, easy to digest, and when done right, they don’t make you go sifting through a bunch of extra words to get to the point.
My point? Don’t always try and write the epic post. Mix it up. Your calendar and readers will thank you for it.
Oh, and complete side note: Today is the five year anniversary of the day I left my job. Time freaking flies.
