All blog posts should span a length sufficient enough to fulfill the title promise.

Give no thought to publishing frequency as you ponder blog post length.
If you publish the weekly post with the fear-energy of “This better be long enough or it will not be valuable because I am not publishing again until next week”, the fear-energy manifests as a crappy, bloated, heavy post.
Most bloggers write posts from an energy of fear, scarcity and lack. Many bloggers believe they are not good enough.
Said negative energies goad bloggers to:
- write bloated posts
- write boring posts
- write posts with filler
because these bloggers believe blog post quality quality depends on a specific word count more than anything else.
Blog post value depends on:
- fulfilling the title promise
- covering the title promise in clear, thorough, concise fashion
- adding enough knowledge to answer the core post question and nothing more
Never ponder blog post frequency before picking a blog post word length.
Thinking frequency creates scarcity-based, “not enough”, mental cross currents that add a poverty conscious, lack conscious, scarcity energy to your writing.
Guaranteed; if you feel like your post length will not be enough because you post weekly, you try too hard to overcome the “not enough” energy and make the post way too long, filling it with wordy sentences, bloated paragraphs and an overall boring experience.
The Ultimate Blogging Curse
Have you ever written a dazzling, 2000 word, in-depth, clear, crisp, concise post, and nobody shows up to read it?
You cling to the ultimate blogging curse; your predominant fear energy of “not good enough or not long enough” overrides your writing brilliance.
You cannot outsmart your predominant energy. If you fear, fear mirrors back to you through your blogging results.
This is from my 2 month trip to Oman.
Imagine publishing one brilliant, genius, clear, concise blog post weekly. If you fear 800 words is not enough, the fear mirrors back to you as no readers, no profits, and blogging failure.
Visualize yourself publishing one 800 word post weekly from a whole, complete, calm, confident, happy energy. 800 words is enough to you. 800 words inspires your readers, you believe, in your mind.
The 800 word, weekly post generates a ton of traffic based on your:
- belief system
First, strengthen your mental muscle. Be positive. Visualize your blogging success. Count blogging wins.
Proceed to write a weekly blog post from this success conscious, positive vibe, to find your ideal word count.
One General Ground Rule
Most bloggers and readers accept 600 words as the minimum count for a blog post.
Break the minimum rule if your intuition tells you to break it. But if not, start at 600 words as the ideal benchmark and go from there.
The Best Advice
Choose a blog post title inspiring your readers to succeed.
Create an outline.
Think 600 words minimum, but, just write.
Allow words to flow.
Give no thought to blog post frequency as you write; projecting into the future takes you out of the moment, out of your flow, and you leave your power behind.
Focus your attention and energy on having fun helping your readers succeed. Allow the words to flow.
I never read a success-promoting post that felt good to read and said to myself, “But I wished the post were 2,000 words long because now I have to wait for next week to read another post.”
We live in abundance.
If someone wants more content that someone can:
Success is your birthright.
You were born rich.
Feel whole and complete if you publish a 600 word post weekly.
Feel whole and complete if you publish a 2000 word post weekly.
Feeling whole and complete attracts to you readers who enjoy your 600, 1000, and 2000 word posts.
The only thing that matters is writing clear, concise, crisp posts that deliver on the title promise, from a calm, confident, abundant, detached, success-conscious energy.
