A Brief Note on the Blog

My posts recently have been getting longer and longer and I think I’m hitting the point where ‘prolix’ is an eligible adjective: I’m at risk of using so many words that people may not finish or start reading, or risk being bored by the posts. Despite the fact that I write quickly, it does take some time to write 2,000 words. I want to write the number of words to carry the point across and make the best of your time and my time.

I’m going to experiment with posts that are as informative/useful but that are slightly shorter, aiming for 1,000 words as an upper bound and splitting posts thematically where possible to keep to this. At the end of July, assuming I remember, I’m going to review this to see how it’s going. (The risk, of course, is that editing to keep inside this frame will consume far more time than just writing. Believe me, I’m aware of that one!)

As always, feedback is very welcome and I reserve the right to completely forget about this and start writing 10,000 word megaposts again because I’ve become carried away. Thanks for reading!
