Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

Any length if well written. I'm not sure why some of the featured bloggers on SP are chosen repeatedly. I don't think the content is motivating or the style of writing is engaging.

To me that's an odd question. I see a blog as a personal expression...and I would never write my own blog to please someone else's idea of what they might prefer!!

I'm obviously not trying to use a blog commercially by seeing how many "hits" or "followers" I can generate....

Interesting replies. Some blog experts report that long blogs get more comments than short blogs for the same hits, even if they both have catchy titles and are well written. I find this hard to believe. My preference is a long blog be divided into two blogs.

It depends on many things:

- if it is a subject which I am interested in, and the blog contains some well-researched data along with opinions (and cites sources), then I can enjoy a long blog

- if it is well written, with good grammar, and is well spaced (no "wall of text" effect), so that it flows well both visually and intellectually, then I can enjoy a long blog

- if it is written from a perspective which I find appealing (which sometimes might be humourous, other times might be emotionally touching, and other times might be purely objective), then I can enjoy a long blog

- if is is a wall of text, filled with grammatical and spelling errors that jar the mind out of the flow of thought, and is purely opinion with no reference to fact... well, then extremely short - closer to nonexistent - would be my preference ;)

Seriously - a quick couple of lines indicating mood, or status, or conveying some thought or humour is great, and doesn't need a novel. Otherwise, the length of the blog should vary to the subject.

Sir Terry Pratchett:

"Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

That would depend on the complexity of the subject matter!
