After blogging for four years, I have read articles and statistics from many sources. Experts expect between 1,000 and 1,500 words to do justice to the topic if you post a professional content piece. But what if you do not write professional content?

Amateur or vanity blog posts are different. I have had comments telling me that my posts were too long, so I tried to keep them between 300-500 words after that.

How long should my post be?

What do you think about amateur post length?

blah-blah blablabla- blah!
