How Many Words Should A Blog Post Be?

There are a lot of gurus who claim to have the answer about how many words a blog post should be. But, the truth is, there’s no real tried and true answer. There are good reasons for having long, short and in-between blog posts, so the best answer to this question is likely to have a combination of all types of posts.

1. Short Blog Posts

Keeping blog posts short, say under 500 words, is great for readers who have short attention spans and to update your readers on something exciting. Bite-sized content is great to read while waiting in line, at the doctor’s office, or when your reader has a short break. You get to the point quickly, so they can move on to your call to action.
