10.05.2012 | 長短問題

[Volume 7 Issue 5, #1410]
我當初決定今年要每日寫一貼嘅時候, 本來就係計劃一張圖片再加上一兩句文字就搞掂.. 儘量保持精簡, 因為我了解到要讀者啃落大篇幅文字係非常吃力的.. 不過寫寫下, 就越寫越長, 遠遠超出我原先嘅計劃, 哈哈!! 不過之後又覺得, 太長讀者唔耐煩, 太短人家又唔知點回應.. 所以依家咁樣嘅篇幅應該係最恰當啩?? 又或者長短唔係問題, 而係你留有多少互動空間俾讀者?? :)
when i initially decided to write a post daily for this year, i've planned to put one picture followed with just one or two sentences and end my posts.. i try to keep things short, because i understand it's really a for readers to read long posts with loads of photos and words.. but as i write, posts become longer and far beyond what i initially planned for, haha!! anyway i later thought, too long is challenging reader's patience, but too short may also challenge readers to think of what to comment.. so i supposed this length is moderate and appropriate enough?? or perhaps it's not the length, but how much interactive space you can provide the readers?? :)

    2. I would definitely not going to make this 'post-daily' as one of my resolution.

      Actually I'm a very passive person. I'm not spontaneous and can't come up with topic easily.

      Delete
    3. Someone start the topic and I continue, no problem.

      Delete
    4. I don't give a good impression to someone who first meet me... They would think I'm snobbish because I tend to be quiet. Unless if the person starts the conversation with me.

      I need some ice breaker!

  4. I can't always post up "What's Cooking?" in my blog, otherwise I would get the synonymous comments, like, "Yummy~", "Drooling!", etc.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yalor, when you write about food, sure got these standard "yummy" "delicious" "drooling" comments one.. that's why i try to avoid such posts also..

      Delete
  5. I like every entry of yours which is short and straight to the point. No lengthy-lengthy post which make me giddy after reading towards the end.

    Then have to re-read from top again :s

    1. actually commenting is more difficult than writing post right?? haha..

      Delete
    2. Yup, commenting is more difficult. They can tell if we comment from our heart or simply hantam comment.

      We wrote the food is not nice, but would receive some comments like, "Nice food", "Love to try it". I was like.... what the?? Not nice also want to try?

      Delete
  10. true .. I don't like blog that is too long..
    but then when you start writting you can't stop .. lol..

    1. yeah, when you start writing you cannot stop.. but i try to keep things short and sweet lah, don't want to waste too much effort writing so long, cos nobody will read all~~

      Delete
    2. Hahaha, SK knows that nobody care to read all~ Yes, I do a 'quick read' and fast-fast leave comment when I'm busy. Geez, I'm so insincere!

      The longer the post, the more mistake I would make during commenting.

      Delete
  11. sometime it also depend on how intereting of the topic...

    1. yeah, so i think long or short is not the only factor.. more importantly is how interesting the topic you are writing..

  12. More words or more photos, once a while is okay la. But need the time to read and digest. Then come up with comments :p
