I have that problem with my Dr. Dobb's blog. A blog is shorter than an 
article, but lots of people have commented that my blog entries are too 
short. The problem with an article length one is, of course, the time 
involved in writing it. I also suspect that fewer readers would read it 
if it were article length.
