[Blogging Mindset] A Thousand Words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. That may be true.

But a thousand words, crafted to perfection, written in the most clear manner possible, edited over and over again, those words can often leave readers speechless.

In a world of so many tech gadgets, of YouTube and Netflix binging, it feels as if the written word has lost its power.

But is it so?

I strenuously believe that we are made of words, not atoms. That it is stories that act as the glue that holds it all together: who we are, who we used to be, where we have been.

Without stories, the world would be empty. Cold. Pointless.

Without words, it would be as if we didn’t exist.

Keep this in mind as you write your next post. Keep this in mind as you sit down at your desk to write the best thousand words ever. The words that are going to shake the world a bit.

Never, ever, ever underestimate the power of great engaging content, polished and published on your blog.That’s where things can, and often do, get very interesting.

Have you written your 1000 words today?

      1. Hi Cristian, I am new to blogging. I have been at it for a few years now. Today I wrote a post, it was about 3000 words or so. I enjoy the process or writing and the ability to be creative with my material. It gives me a place to focus my energy and passions.

  1. Knowing the average attention-span, I try to keep my Rants and Rambles down to 500 words/post, or less. Only occasionally do I stretch to 1000/1200 words, but when I do, I try to keep them tight, informative, and meaningful. 🙂

    1. I’ve found 500 to be about the right length for me, too. My posts are usually a little longer than that, but that’s because they contain quoted material. Does it count as 1000 if I end up editing most of it away? lol.

  2. Thanks for that, great post. I often wonder with the streaming sites like Netflix how they are ever going to get enough new idea to keep going. So you’re right – we have to keep creating and writing, and it all starts with words.

  3. It is sad how many people believe a “Like” on Facebook is keeping in touch. I worry that in a very short time writing a letter will be a lost art. Are writers an endangered species? I hope not.
