I’ve noticed that my longer, more in depth articles have a favorable effect on traffic, as they are passed around more, so I’m thinking about putting more effort into them.
What I’d like to do is write an in-depth piece of 1,500-3,000 words at least once a week, posted on Mondays or Tuesdays. This shouldn’t be a problem, but it might mean a little less time for the shorter articles, so total post volume might go down slightly, although total text volume will likely increase.
I’d be interested in knowing whether regular readers like the longer articles, so feel free to let me know what you think of the idea. I like writing them, but they can be pretty involved, taking up pretty much an entire shift (or longer in some cases), so I want to make sure the effort is well-spent.
