    Do the layout and length of a hub help determine whether or not you read it?

    I'm guilty of not reading hubs based on their layout and length. If they are too long I tend to gloss over them (unless they are really well written.) Does anyone else find themselves doing this or something similar?

    Yes, in a print magazine, I will gladly read 3, 4 or more pages of an article that interests me, on the Internet, if something looks more than about 750-1000 words, I generally just move on.

    I try to start reading a hub before looking at how long it is. Sometimes it results in me reading a really long hub, and other times I end up skipping forward half way through. Also, if the text is all bunched together, I have a hard time sticking with it. Using things like subtitles, pictures, polls and other links, helps to break up the text and make the reading seem less daunting.
