Anyone else find this?

Hi all

I'm just in the process of writing my latest post for my WA promo site, It felt like I had been writing for hours then I realised it because I have.

Just out of interest I decided to check the word count for the content I had write so far, and it comes to over 2,500 words and it's only three quarters of the way through.

I'm going to re-jig a couple of things and turn it into somewhat of a pillar post.

When I first joined WA i was seriously struggling to write 400-500 words. Now I can't produce a blog post that contains less than 1,000 words. I just can't!

Anyone else find this?

Sounds like a good problem to have.

Yes, I do find this too. When I went back to check over old posts some were barely 300 words! It gets easier the more I do it. :)

Perfectly normal once you become comfortable. We all become blabbermouths. So we have to understand that quality rates higher than quantity. If it's long and dull it just won't get read.

Hi Dick, couldn't agree more. I personally write my post from start to finish and then go back through and edit out anything that's not essential.

Makes sense to me

Yep, I've definitely had the same experience. When I first started working on my blog site I thought I was doing good to hit 500 or so words in a post, now I'm averaging closer to around 1500 and it still feels like it isn't enough, but I worry about being too long-winded sometimes lol

I know the feeling, my rule is if it needs to be said say it, if not then don't. All of my posts lately seem be long, I may throw in a few shorted posts to mix things up.
