How Long Should a Blog Post Be?

How long should a blog post be: 300, 500, 1000+ words?
Vanilla
I like to write very long posts (something like 600-1000 words) and I think it depends on what you're writing about. I like to tell stories and I think the beauty of a post of this kind is in the details. Very Happy

But a post this length is not design-friendly, so I only display the excerpt with a thumbnail (if existing). I use a wordpress plugin for that. You can check how it looks on my blog. Smile

How long should a news article be? How large should a painting be? How big should a hammer be?

It depends on what you're talking about, how much you actually have to say, what style of writing you're aiming for, how well you can hold your audience's attention ...

I suppose that would really depend on the writing talent one has. I have read blogs that I wish the author had made longer.
