Unlike my other posts about kissing this one isn’t about the lip smacking variety. KISS is an acronym for Keep It Short and Simple or when you don’t want to be nice, Keep It Simple Stupid.
Just in case you haven’t noticed, my posts aren’t very long. It’s not because I don’t have a lot to say, but because I’d like to keep the reader's attention throughout the post. How many times have you gone to a blog post and had to scroll and scroll down the page before you got to the end? How many times have you read through those long blog posts? Hmmmm.
Social media expert, Kristen Lamb, advises that a blog post should be less than 500 words. This word count gives the reader enough information without making their eyes cross with too much reading. I’m a direct and to the point person so KISSing comes easy for me (for most posts).
Do you like your blog posts on the longer or the shorter side?
