Keeping a long hub engaging

    I've just published a long hub about the life of Nostradamus. I've included images, video, etc. but I'm still concerned about people's attention spans! What do you think? Thanks in advance.

    "Nostradamus: Genuine Prophet or Just a Pothead Poet?"

      It really doesn't seem that long to me, and I have the attention span of a smashed house fly. The title is engaging and all the added media draws me in. I'm going to read it after I do my homework. I know nothing about Nostradamus, except that he was a clue in the NYT crossword puzzle today and I didn't know the answer.

      Also, I was born in Santa Cruz, so I like your username!

    It did not seem long to me, either.  I'd like to have read more!

    Promise to do more and I'll follow you.. Oh, heck I just will and hope. smile

    A third vote for "It's just fine".  I didn't find it too long at all.

    Thanks so much to the three of you. And Shanna, you made me laugh!
    Previously I've split long hubs into two. Maybe I'll stop doing that...
