re: What's the right word length for a blog post?🧐 VIEW POST

re: I 100% write very long wordy first drafts, that sound like the ramblings of a mad man when I read back through it. I'm definitely going to edit wit...

As with anything, it depends :) But I aim for a minimum of two revisions. The purpose of each revision also matters. For example:

  • Revision #1: I'll re-read and check for technical accuracy, fix typos, cut sentences, and add content.
  • Revision #2: If it's a tutorial I'll recreate the experience by following the steps. If I'm missing something, I'll add it in or I'll revise if something isn't clear.
  • Revision #3: A final copy-edit.

And then publish.


It's even better if you can get someone else to redo the tutorial, that's the best way to test it.

Re-do as in review? Yes, it's always preferable to have someone review the tutorial and try it from start to finish. This option isn't always available to people, however, but is generally considered a best practice.
