Does a blog post need to be thousands of words long, pre-empting every potential query?

No. A blog post only needs to be long enough to get your point across. And not a word longer.

    Especially when your blog has a comments section, where you can answer any questions as they arise.

    You’ve proven your own point guys! I was ready to enjoy a lengthy post on the subject but you’ve double-bluffed me.

    I think it’s important to remember your audience in any blog post you write, and remember the subject matter – if you are writing on a topic that is highly technical never be afraid to give it some extra wordage to get your message across!
