Have you ever come across a blog post or a comment that is quite lengthy and the words are all grouped together and the thoughts are one big mixed-up jumble and there are no pauses or breaks or spaces and the entire thing runs on and on quite possibly with multiple thoughts within the same paragraph and after reading a few sentences you notice your brain starts to hurt?
Add some white spaces.
Insert some empty lines.
Like I just did.
Just hit enter.
It’s not hard.
I love reading longer posts or comments but it is so tiring on the eyes and brain to see a huge clump of words all grouped together into one giant paragraph without a break or a breather.
Especially in comments. Comments require white space just as much as regular blog posts.
Don’t be afraid of a little white space. You will encourage, rather than discourage, people to continue reading. Because I can guarantee you, I am not one to stick around for long if you write on and on without white space. And I really do want to read you!
So please, remember:
White space is your friend. 🙂
