1. How long should a blog post be?
If you have not noticed people’s attention spans are extremely short these days. No one likes to take the time to read every detail of an article, instead they skim it.
If you can get your point across quickly and concisely, then the shorter the better.

I would not write about your favorite vacation place or anything like that, but you could right about how to get clients, how to spruce up your website or anything pertaining to business.
