Nah I agree, blogs need to be longer rather than short. Twitter is considered "micro blogging." So I totally agree with ya. Haha. Thanks for the add. We are a worship band, form Boise, Idaho. Check out our stuff! www.myspace.com/thewaitingkind

medium. I think the answer is 'medium'.

short = twitter
medium = blog
loooong = entries only my mom reads, I think.

yeah... i think i knew that, but was immediately convicted by my always long posts... so I went the other way :)

never can just meet in the middle, can I? :)

Hmm. Personally? Length is irrelevant for me. I choose to read blog posts that are interesting, regardless of length. Posts are only "too long" if they lose me somewhere. (Still, I get the worry: When I finished my recent post, I didn't figure anyone would read the whole thing.)

Your readers (myself included) are reading because we ARE interested in what you have to say or we wouldnt be here! Blog to your hearts content. Just be you! That is why we are here!

you're very sweet! and don't worry... this guy is verbose to his core, and I don't see a whole lot of short blogs in my future.

I'll continue to pour my mind out on these virtual pages and whoever wants a piece can come check it out.

Just trying to start a little discussion, really... :)


thanks again for your comment!
