I am probably rare in that I often feel cheated if I start reading a blog post/article that someone could really get their teeth into, but then they finish after a few hundred words and I'm wanting more - but there ISN'T any. Puts me right off.
Maybe I should just stop worrying about what 'they' recommend and write what I feel like writing?
Actually, you know what? That's what I'm going to do. If it only deserves 300 words, so be it. If I want to write '000s I will.
its all about what u want to do. its not about the writing so much if its about what you are writing about. if you are writiing about plastic stars for car windows most people are not gonna read 6000 words, however if its about say different catalysts that will boost share holder value then that crowd will be more then willing to put in the work for that type of knowledge
