…could I have underestimated how much I may need to write? I’ve been looking at other blogs recently and compared to them, I don’t really think have the confidence to believe that I can write like 500+ word reviews and so on. Up to now when I’ve written reviews of anime, I would write more like a short summary than a detailed review. Maybe because since I’m using a spreadsheet for my anime reviews, which is actually much more convenient for me, is why I prefer to write more summary-like.
So what will I do about word length? I did some reading about commonly asked questions when it comes to writing a blog and I got some useful tips for writing a blog. When it comes to the amount of words you can have in your blog post, that’s entirely up to author. Blogs such as Engadget don’t write long blog posts and yet they have attracted a very decent amount of visitors overall. It doesn’t matter how long your post is, as long you deliver the message to the reader. I’ve learned this from a very helpful article by Darren Rowse.
When it comes to me writing reviews, I probably won’t have every single detail of what I watched or played, but I will ensure that I try my best at giving my readers what they are looking for and need to know. I will also still use my Anime Review spreadsheet.
