Filed under: Long Copy
So recently I saw this on my Facebook feed …
I don’t know about you, but I was a bit shocked.
No, not at how impressed some teenager was about the male genitals of an Octopus, but the fact they thought 48 words was defined as a long read.
OK, so I appreciate you think reading 10 words on my blog is long, but come on … seriously, 48 words made to sound like it’s War & Peace?!
I know John Dodds and I have a slightly differing opinion on long copy [ie: he thinks it shouldn’t exist, I think it’s not about the length of the copy, but the content of the copy] but I’m hoping even he would say this is a bit of an extremist view.
God, who am I kidding …
