It depends. If the blog is something I'm interested in, I don't mind reading more. If they're too short - just a couple of sentences - I sometimes wonder why I even bothered to look at it. I guess "medium" ones would be my favorites. (smile)

Depend on the blog. I really don't have a preference as long as it is informative and interesting. I also like blogs that give me ideas and that I can learn from.

If it is too long I tend to not read it. So I prefer shorter.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Seems to be a lot saying SHORT here....well I like LONG....

BUT....not a long moaning groaning blog ....not just words written blog.....and not a humourless blog....that is long!

BUT....if the blog has humour among the serious sentences
.....if the blog is something positive
.....if the blog has pictures or images dispersed amoung the words
....if the blog makes me smile and feel good

THEN....I like a long blog!

Depends on the author's writing ability and subject matter.
If Terry Pratchett wrote a health blog, i'd read it for 24 hours straight. If it's someone moping about making the same mistake again and again and feeling sorry for themselves, no thank you.

WORK as if your wife were watching,
THINK as if it didn't hurt,
DANCE as if you need the money.

Somewhere in between short and long. The really short ones sometimes don't have much "food for thought," while the long ones are hard to get through sometimes.
