A Travellerspoint blog

Dot points - or - Written dialogue.... Readers preference?

Looking back over the entries in this blog so far, I saw that my writing style varies rather dramatically! That got me thinking, what do people prefer? What do they find easier to read? Short, sharp, to the point, bullet style lists... or longer, wordier, more descriptive writing?

I suppose it depends a lot on each individual's own personal preference, and the reason they're reading the blog. I for example prefer the dot point style, as that's just me, and I find it easier to quickly skim through to get the information I need. Plus, as the writer, it's easier for me to transcribe my even shorter, sharper (and a zillion times more unintelligible!) notes, into dot points, than it is into a longer dialogue style.

Others however, may prefer the longer style, for a range of different reasons. Even I prefer this style in some instances, but as yet, haven't really been able to pin down why.

Nonetheless, thinking about it has totally awakened my curiosity, so feel free to honestly comment if you want :)
