500 words or less.
That’s my central obligatory rule. There are hundreds of rules out there for blogging, for instance, you don’t pull on superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t have ungodly long subject lines and you always provide an external link as “open in new window”. Nevertheless, the one and only blogging rule I find of greatest consequence is never to post a post that is post 500 words. I read enough in my career as a perpetual student, so when I succumb to so-called “brain candy”, that’s just what I want – short and sweet with a crackly wrapper.
Now, I know that I rarely ever answer the end-of-post question…however, I’m curious, do you have an indispensable blog rule you find vital, critical, essential, and a requisite to everything you consider to be blogging?
