Hello Parallel Bloggers,
Good article writing skills is one the most important factor that you need to have for making a nice famous blog. Good writing skills also need some correct optimization techniques to compile a good article. The size of the article or post you write on your blog also matter a lot to consider and concern your readers of the blog.



So today we are going to discuss one very important thing that leaves a very good impression to your readers. Wisely choosing the blog post size will attract your traffic to turn into readers and come again on your blog. Basically the article size is divided into broad sizes, namely short and long.

Short post basically consists of 500-800 words in the article, writing a post short than 500 words is a very bad idea though. Long blog post generally consist of 800-2000 words, writing a too long post is also a bad idea. You can write too long blog post if you are writing some special tutorial which demands more words or you are writing some special story. There are many extraordinary cases in which all the rules can be broken and you can write any size blog post.

Below we will discuss the factors in which you can choose short and conditions in which you need to choose long blog post. We will look among all the general points you need to consider before you choose among the article size. Choosing the correct post size will benefits you and your blog in many ways, we can discuss those points later.

Short Blog Post:

As you already know short article means less than 800 words in a particular post or article you write for your blog. There are certain parameters you need to think upon before you decide to write a short post.

Are you writing a small update section? Are you giving basic description of something? Are you listing something? Are you writing a small tutorial? If you are doing some of the above things then you can think of writing a short and small article. You need to see that in chance to write a short post you are not missing upon any necessary point, which the user may need.

Long Blog Post:

Long posts are generally given the categories when you write more than 800 words in particular article. There are many benefits as well as negatives of writing a long blog post, which we can discuss some other time. Wisely choosing the long post will definitely help your blog in sustaining more readers get loyal traffic.

Are you going to write a long description of a product? Are you going to write a review of certain service? Are you going to compare to product or services? Are you going to write a long tutorial for something? If you are going to do some of the above thing then you need to choose the long blog post. Writing a long blog post will definitely cover all the points your reader may need to know. But it will also make the reader lose interest in the writing that you have written.

So before you choose the post size, properly think before it. It can work in your favor and also against your favor sometimes.
