How long should a post be? 400? 1000 words? Or do you think that you need as many words as you need to convey an idea?
Cutting what’s not essential is a great thing to do no matter how long your post will be.
But here’s another tip I found on the internet, yet another tip I don’t necessarily agree with. The first and last paragraphs of my blog posts are actually the essential ones, and the ones I focus on more.
I always have a beginning and an end in mind when I write.
I start by giving you an idea and maybe a reason for you to keep reading my post. And the end is where you’re gonna find that it was worth reading it until the end.
So, if I delete my first and last paragraphs, you’ll only have middle of my post, and I can’t just let you have it, as if I was giving you a sandwich but only with the spread and filling, not with the bread.
Does it make any sense?
