Please don’t read this…

1 Jun

People don’t like to read anymore… not on screen, not unless they are hyper-passionate about the subject they are reading. Think about this…

A computer is a screen or a viewing platform, people primarily watch and listen (as oppose to read) when they sit in front of a screen, it is now designed to be primarily an auditory and visual experience.

On screen people have been trained to read small amounts of text, text that is immediately engaging, text that evokes images and stirs their imagination. Have you ever wondered why people struggled to read your long winded travel blogs? Instead write a very short story, tell it on video or illustrate it with photos.

And yes, you can be sure that this blog will soon be on video.
