And I think I speak for a lot of people here. Not most (I think), but just a fair number of people.
I’ve published a few long posts, both either short story or blog post. These have received considerably less views compared to my poems and shorter blog posts. It’s all a bit confusing to me because short stories are supposed to be my strong suit, not the other way around.
So basically I figured out that a lot of people are probably too lazy to read long posts. Not saying it’s bad, but I am an offender of this too, I skip reading posts worth a thousand words. (I’m also not writing this to make people read my long posts, but it is fact after looking at the stats.)
Is it bad that people now are more reluctant to read long posts? Perhaps, but then again, there are those who write unnecessarily long for a sort-of pride, “Look I can write a lot, I’m a great writer now!” Not going to lie, but I did carry this mentality for a while before I realized that it was more harm than good.
But it is a shame to know that a few detailed reports are being ignored. My posts may not be gems, but perhaps so many others are, and I’m missing out. I guess sometimes, we just kind of have to step out of our comfort zones.
