Is it even possible to have an ideal length to a story/article — on Medium or otherwise?

Almost 4 hours. And we did not complain.

First of all, two things.

Also, note to Thibaud HerrBuddy, maybe your approach is right, maybe it isn’t. I really don’t know. I have my doubts, and that’s all that it is. My response got longer than a couple of lines, but I would love to know your views.

WHY THIS APPROACH “MAY NOT” BE RIGHT

#1. THE SNOWBALL EFFECT

Not really relevant, I know. But this image has been cracking me up for a good 6 years now!

#2. THE TIPPING POINT

#3. A FOCUS ON THE WRONG METRICS

Why?

NOT DISCOVERED != NOT USEFUL

ALRIGHT. SO WHAT’S THE POINT OF ALL THIS RAMBLING OF MINE?

Relevant. Contextual. Engaging. Entertaining. Informative.

Two screengrabs — 12 hours apart.

Why am I showing these screengrabs?

Length of the story? Really doesn’t matter.

That’s it for today! See you tomorrow…
