Cronstructive Criticism: Are my posts too long for busy people to Read?

Please be honest. I’m still new and have to ask of the posts are simply too long? One thought is that I attempt to do a shorter “cliff-notes” version that stays true to the intended message of the post in a much shorter read. Then I think I can add a whole page wherein I can be as comprehensive as deemed necessary to convey the intended message and can even provide references to the statements made if necessary.

Hello! I'm Kevin. Recently retired from practicing law for 20 years - literally bad for my health. Now making a go of it by writing, which I've long wanted to do but never had the time. Now I am just another person trying to take the upheavals in life as stoically as I can and sharing my thoughts with people like you. Originally this space was set up to write about applied Philosophy, but as the archives show, I did not write frequently. In hopes that I will post more often, I am expanding the subject matter to include any of my varied interests, one of which is politics. That was my undergraduate Minor and has remained a passion to this day. Given the controversial 2016 election, I felt compelled to start writing again. I realize politics may alienate many people, but I will write in a fair-minded way that should not offend anyone and hopefully promotes a friendly discourse and true exchange of ideas. All of us have fallen into echo-chambers so we only hear opinions that reinforce our own beliefs. When that happens you never really hear other points of view and your ideas will not be challenged what the other side is saying and you have gridlock. Feel free to push back and challenge my ideas, preferably in a respectful way and I will do the same to ideas I disagree with. As long as the dialogue maintains appropriate civility and decorum, I look forward to having my ideas challenged and perhaps both may be better for having engaged in the dialogue.

  1. I don’t mind the length of your posts. If the content is engaging, then the length matters less. But I think more people gravitate towards shorter posts because they take less time and energy to digest. It also caters to the shorter time frames that people may have to spend on here. So all in all, I like your idea of the cliff-notes versions to original posts!
