Shorter is better..

..And we are talking about the length of your blog post here, by the way. According to this article one way to attract and retain a large audience for your blog is to limit your posts to less than 300 characters.

How did they reach this magical figure? Well, they analyzed the top 5 blogs in the intraweb (Engadget, Gizmodo, etc.) and looked at how long their posts are.

‘The data became clearer. On that particular day, the top five bloggers created an average of 30 entries, with each entry being under 150 words.’

So there you have it, shorter is better. At least when it comes to blogging, and if you are wondering this blog post has 124 words. Hey, maybe it works?
