You may have noticed that all posts on my blog are relatively long. I just like to breakdown my thoughts and think them through. It’s a sort of therapy – once you write your thoughts you can see them from completely different angle compared to the viewpoint while they are still in your head.

However, the problem with longer posts is that it takes a lot of time to compose them. At least in my case. Because I am non-native English speaker, it also requires some time to work on editing, choosing correct words, etc. That is the main reason I am not posting regularly, or several times per week. I have ideas, I just do not have enough time to process all of them. Most probably, I will not have more time for my disposal. I guess it is time to start publishing some short posts. And you know what, this is Progress as well! I believe it will help me to express my thoughts in more straightforward way for instance. More benefits will reveal down the road.

Let this be my first post under 200 words, and it will start the series:

Progress under 200 words.

Until next post,

  1. I’ve asked myself the same question, Vladimir! Like you, I typically favor longer posts, but in addition to taking longer to compose, they also take longer to read, which makes me wonder if reader-friendliness is another perk of the short post.

    I’m interested to hear how your experiment with short posts works out!

    1. Thanks for the comment! To be honest, this connection did not appear in my mind. I mean the fact that it takes longer to read which may turn into undesired effect of readers not finishing… I am also very curious how this will work out, I will make sure to post some Progress as time passes 🙂
