Some people got it; I don’t. When it comes to being wordy and expressing thoughts in a well-rounded post, I just don’t have it. Some of my readers have commented on my succinctness before, and it blows my mind because I often find that reaching a mere 500 words in a post can be a drawn-out task. I’m just too direct, I guess?
Other people have the gift of gab in a way that causes them to have to take words out of articles. IF ONLY I had THAT problem, I would be able to write blog after blog, article after article, and not have to rack my brain — taking up time — on how to reach my desired word count.
Although, it’s not supposed to really be about word count. Successful blog posts can rely on successful topics and presentation, yet word count is generally what the world of writing is based upon. Do you ever feel like you’re just putting in mindless drivel to fill a page (like I’m doing just now)?
Another area where I struggle is commenting. I read a lot of blogs and comments, and while I feel like I *should* say something, I often have nothing to really say. Instead I respond quickly on how I liked the read, but that just kind of looks like spam comments. Even on my blog here, I would like to respond to everyone’s comments, but who has that time?
Do I appreciate comments?
Damn straight I do. I LOVE comments on my blog, and I cherish each and every one, but sometimes I just have nothing to say in response except for maybe “thanks for reading”. I know… lamesauce?
Is it bad that I often struggle more on commenting now, than I do on writing? To all you long-winded people out there: How do you do it?
