Anniversary Special Post – Details with Aldael


The last guest post for the week and another big thank-you to Aldael for getting involved and sharing their thoughts on details. Aldael writes Aldael’s Attic which has recently hit a couple of milestones celebrating an anniversary and 100 followers last week. If you don’t already follow them, be sure to check out their blog.


And look at this beautiful 100 word response:

It‘s said that the devil‘s in the detail and probably not without a reason. It’s really hard to stop when you find an interesting fact that leads to another one and another one almost endlessly. It seems blasphemy not to share it, and cutting down the wordcount may feel like crippling a beloved child. What to do then? There’s probably no best answer. I think the aim should be to trim anything that doesn’t support the main message of the post. Read and trim, reread and trim again. I’m not that good at this but practice makes perfect. I hope.

Okay, in fairness, I don’t follow my own 100 word rule either so I can hardly get nitpicky when other people are contributing. Still, Aldael hit the word count right on the dot and I have to congratulate that.

And if you are wanting to check out Aldael’s blog, here is a link to start you off:

A huge thank you to Aldael and to everyone who participated in the anniversary this week. Just one final wrap up post to come out later today. All of the anniversary posts have been filed under the anniversary category so if you have missed any thing this week, be sure to check them out.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I find it funny that in a post about details… you miss a detail! 🙂

    (“The Devil is in the *details*”, not “detail!)

  2. This is such important advice and Aldael nails it on the Head. Good job!

    I wonder if he followed his own advice here, because that would be dedication.
