Reading, ‘Riting, and ‘Rithmatic

Rory wants to know about our blog reading and writing habits and there’s even a little math involved. So let’s answer Rory’s blog questions.

Are you ‘mostly’ a short content or a long content reader and how many words within those defines can you comfortably read per post?

I prefer shorter posts, say 500 words or fewer. But sometimes a blogger can’t say what he or she wants to or needs to say in 500 words, and if I like the blogger and the way he or she writes, I will occasionally read longer posts.

How many blogs do you read per day?

Here’s the math part. I follow a lot of blogs (more than 150) and I try to read them all each day, as well as posts that bloggers I don’t follow write in response to some of my prompts. But depending upon what other things are going on in my life, I can’t always do that every day.

Are you a short, long or varying length content writer and if so what is your preferred length for a post that you create?

More math. Given that my average post length so far this year is 237 words, I’m going with short. That said, because some posts have word limits, ranging from six to 20 to 100 to 200, I do write some longer posts, but I strive to keep them to 500 words or less.

What kind of relationship do you have with the blogs that you follow – in so far as Like only, Read only, Interact only, Comment only or a combination of all?

It’s a definitely a combination of all of those things.

    I coined a term when I answered these. I call it the ‘combo”…which is apparently how you blog, and how I blog and how most of our neighbors here blog too. That’s great! ☺

    Phew, that was a lot of math but I survived! There are only so many hours in a day and life must come first!
