The 500 Word Challenge

Posted in Blog at 12:37 am by Haider

In view of my tendency to write 10 blog posts in 1, and the fact that I don’t have much time to write lengthy articles on a daily basis, I’m going to be challenging myself to the ultimate challenge! (for me anyway!)

… And if you’ve browsed through this site, “miracle” is a more appropriate word than challenge :P

I’m going to limit my posts to a maximum of 500 words…

In most cases, I can sum up the main point of an article in less than 500 words. Where I feel an article deserves greater elaboration, I’ll post a short summary of the article here, and post a longer version of the article on Scribd (thanks teagirl for the suggestion!)

This way, my blog will be more “blog-like,” and I can satisfy my craving for writing more in Scribd (where I suspect more people are used to reading longer articles)…

    I enjoy reading your articles, but to be honest I found them a bit long. :)
    I think to shorten them is a good idea, so we can benefit from this special mentality! more often :)

    بالتوفيق

    Laialy_Q8: Thanks, but no promises on the length of my comments :P

    Salah: Thank you, and this is a very common complaint that I receive, and I hope I can stick to the word limit!

    Teagirl, I’m not surprised that people listen to you, especially when you make good suggestions :)
