People have short attention spans at best and most bloggers get frustrated when they realize that a lot of people only read the first and last paragraphs of their posts … posts that can take hours of research and writing to get into final form for publication on a blog.
There is an answer and a lot of bloggers are turning to it for the convenience of their readers and for their own comfort. It is called “Micro-Blogging” and it takes its form, nature and character from such icons of the electronic communications world as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
While the ordinary blog post can run a Thousand words or more …. to give the reader as much content as the reader can take away from the encounter ….. a Micro-Blog can run 200 words more or less and be a lot more compact and specific in the details it presents to the reader.
On review and retrospect, I have discovered that I have been doing a lot of Micro-Blogging here on “The Liming Report” and I must say that I am tempted to do a lot more of it in the future.
I have installed a word counting program on the blog so I can keep track.
This post for example, is 224 words. This post would meet the length criteria for microblogging.
