One long article, or lots of posts?
With regards to longish articles on this site, do you have a preference in how they are presented to you? I came across some posts today that caught my eye, maybe because of my sceptisism. . This was one article that had been broken down into 11 separate posts of about 500 characters each.before moving onto the next chapter. Upon mentioning this to the author (who will remain nameless as this is a general observation and question) they said that people find it easier to read lots of short posts instead of one long post. My view takes the opposite approach, readers become side tracked and lose concentration whilst having to jump from post to post, the attention span is interrupted and interest in the subject starts to wane. So onto my question. Do you prefer to read one long article or 10+ smaller posts / chapters?
One big article
Lots of smaller posts
Either as long as the content is good
