Don’t Worry about Word Count
Word counts are fairly important in blogging, but it shouldn’t become something you fixate on to the detriment of your content.
There’s a lot of debate amongst blogging professionals about what the ‘optimum’ word count is. The general consensus is that anything over 300 words is good, 700 words is golden, but you can happily go up to 2,000 without losing readers.
Rather than trying to reach a set word count every time, write however much needs to be written! If a post is done in 500 words, with nothing more to say, leave it there without adding fluff. Excessive words can make people lose interest.
Likewise, if you are covering a larger topic that needs a lot of details and explanations, then don’t be afraid to write more. If it is a post that will provide people with information that they are looking for, then they will be interested in reading it.
We hope this advice will help you on your way to creating more interesting blog posts!
