Interesting take on blogging productivity. Do you think there's a correlation between time spent crafting a blog post and its results, social shares, etc.? In general, the more time I spend researching and writing a post, the better the results I see -- both for my own projects and for my clients.  #blogging #productivity

Fun and informative infographic from +SumAll with ideal character count, word count, and number of minutes for online content. Except for podcasts, I'm pretty much on target.
