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.
I agree with you! I can't stand when something that should have been a really informative article turns into a soundbyte only.
I run into 2,000 words easy when I write, and then I become conscience of size. I make use of the Excerpt function when I run over 1,500 words.
I can do 600-800, for guest posts or spun articles, but I definitely feel like I'm trimming valuable supporting details out of that.
Keep writing how you want to write!
There's a market for everything.
