What do you guys think is better, writing the long story which is interspersed with tips / advice between paragraphs; breaking the story / tips up into two-page hubs; (there would be at least three hubs,) or canning the whole idea entirely?
If I wrote it out as one hub it'd probably be around 9-10 pages long in Open Office. (Freeware text akin to Microsoft Word.)
Thanks for any suggestions, would love if someone has the time and is interested to take a look at what I have so far.
I'd split it into several separate hubs, but put them in a hub group so that it's easy to navigate from one to the other. You could title them with section numbers, e.g. "Whatever Title - Part 1", "Same title again - Part 2" etc. so if someone finds they land at Part 3 they can go to Part 1, if you see what I mean.
I think I'd intersperse the advice throughout the story as that would make it a more interesting read, but that's just a personal preference, it could work well with a summary/advice part at the end.
I usually split the hub if it's more than several hundred words- yours sounds as though it's two or three thousand!
People don't tend to read the very long ones- I usually favourite them or don't read them at all.
split it up, people on the internet only read for a very small amount of time.
Hey, guys, thanks for giving your advice and comments, I appreciate it! I think I'll split it up and intersperse "advice" in each hub.
