Fewer Words is Better – Blogging

Listening to the WebbAlert Video Podcast last week I learned that people that read less news papers, are actually reading less on the internet too.

The following study estimates that readers only read 18-28% of the text on a webpage:  http://www.useit.com/alertbox/percent-text-read.html

 A different study says that once committed, a reader will read an average of 77% of the words based on eyetracking:  http://eyetrack.poynter.org/keys_01.html  People like graphs and pictures and figures and stuff.

Basically, readers are choosy, really choosy with what they read, but if they commit to a subject, they will read most of it.

Expect every word my blog to be scintillating from now on.
