“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of a significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

  1. Thanks David. That eBook is good reading and free. I’m sure you’ll find it of use. As for writing, it really depends on what I’m posting. If I can get to the point really quick then there’s no need to write a novel.

  2. I’d rather write a novel, but I get your point. I need to mix in more short posts, though I am happy that my blog is the place to find feature length article-like posts. You’re better at the shorter posts and you are also good at making a single solid point with each post. This is probably a better approach overall for a photo blog. My blog is sort of a magazine and historical record hybrid.

  3. The nice thing about blogs is that there are no rules or publisher mandates to adhere by. You are free to do whatever you feel like at the moment. Have to take into account your audience too. I don’t market myself as a writer either so I have no pressure to write a certain amount in each post.

  4. Had to come back to say that the nice thing about your blog is that you don’t bloat your text. Over and over I have seen reading around the net that people write way longer articles than necessary to convey their information. Longer does not make better, in fact the opposite is true, except for the purpose of trying to please Google. Is Google making us all worse writers?

  5. Thanks David. People should write for their audience not search engines. I’ve seen sites that have lots of text but none of it makes any sense because it is written purely to spam the search engines. But what’s the point if you get that traffic and the user finds your site unusable?
