Connor Rickett commented on a post on Blogger.
As a general rule, the right amount of world-building is, "Exactly as much as you need, no more, no less." 

Of course, as anything other than a general rule, that's completely useless advice. As a writer, it's your job to know the entire history of the world you're working in (or at least as much as your characters would), but that doesn't mean the readers need to be privy to it all. 

Or you can just cheat and include a slightly unreliable narrator. 

Great post, good advice!

If this isn't the cutest thing you've seen today you're a liar.
