I’m guilty. Sometimes I don’t read an entire review or blog post (gasp!)
If a post is very long, I’ll skim. If it’s a review for a book I’m currently reading, I’ll skim and comment that I’m reading it now and was just looking to see if the reviewer liked it. If it’s a new-to-me book, or one I’ve noticed people talking about, I’ll read enough to see if the book sounds interesting. Generally if it’s a review of a book I have read, I’ll read the review completely to see if I agree with the reviewer.
I like chatty blog posts from bloggers I regularly read. Any post that sparks debate or conversation is a good post for me! Discussion = good! But if it’s too long, I might lose interest. What does this say about my attention span??
As a blog reader, I prefer shorter posts, bullet points, short paragraphs. And with that in mind, I’m attempting to keep my own posts short as well, so that you’ll read them.
SO I’d like to know:
Do you read most blog posts in their entirety? Or, like me, do you skim?
Do you as a blogger make it easy for people to skim?
Is skimming ok with you?
