A requiem for word counts. Who’s with me?

Can you write me a 2,000 word blog post?

There’s a growing online trend for championing longer form content. An anti 140-character, blog post brevity brigade.

With print media, asking for a specific word count made sense.

But online, it misses the point.

Say what you need to say and move on. If the quality is good, I don’t care if it’s 20 words or 2,000.

If word counts are dictating what you write online, challenge the dictator.
