It depends on the topic, how well it's been written, and how easy it is to read. Some long posts are one long paragraph and those are really hard to concentrate on.
I'm not a fan of reading long blogs. I'll start, and if it isn't keeping my interest, I just stop, and i never comment on it because I haven't read it.
It depends on the topic...if it is of interest....the longer the better !
Good morning Frank. Not very often, I limit the amount of time I do social media, just not willing to extend it.
I will read entire blog posts, regardless of length, if it is an interesting post or contains important information.
Frank - I look for the title and/or topic to determine whether I would be interested in reading. However, if it is all text and no photos, I do sometimes tend to rush through the long posts. If I take the time and effort to read, I will usually comment.
If it is good material I do Frank. If boring, on to the next. I try to be fair though.
If it's interesting I read it all. Sometimes I comment, sometimes not (sometimes it's just informational).
I will read the whole thing (if it interests me), but it can be a slog. I wouldn't make a post longer just for SEO.
Define "long" ?? I haven't a problem reading a blog provided the topic is interesting. Market reports? Not so much
It depends on the topic. If it is a subject that is interesting , and it's well written I will read it no matter how long it is

Frank- if it's a wall of words with no breaks, I doubt I'll read it. Just might depending upon the content. When I write, I'm not counting words for SEO and I've had some that have gotten lengthy but not very often.
Frank Rubi, MBA I do read a few long posts if interesting. Otherwise, browse through and move on.
As with the concensus; if it is interesting all the way through. It helps that I speed read so it is not a problem.
Also a post from Lenn Harley you should always leave a comment when going to a post!
A long blog needs to be very informative and or very interesting. My time is worth to much to read a long blog that really says nothing.
I'll read blog posts - long or short - if they're interesting.
Frank Rubi, MBA the first paragraph usually determines whether to keep reading or not.
Good Wednesday morning Frank. No, I don't. I typically want up scanning them as I can only devote so much time to social media.
I agree completely!
I don't mind as long as it is not too long and it is interesting.
If the blog is long, I hesitate to read it, unless the topic attracts my attention and the blog holds it.
It really depends on the topic. I try not to write them too long so I can keep the reader and not have them move on midway through the post.
Short posts are most popular.
I skim a few.
I'm going to be honest, unless I'm really interested in the topic, I'm not going to read a blog that's too long!
