A Single-Spaced World

Suddenly, it is a single-spaced world. 

This thought just occurred to me as I was editing an article I am going to post on my new companion blog.  Last time I tried importing something from Word that was double-spaced I got everything all messed up, even after I’d figured out how to do it without making the Type Pad plain text formatting gods mad.  So I was putting this article into single space.

And that’s when it hit me.

All SEO copywriting, of which I have been doing a LOT, is single spaced. 

Blog posts are single spaced.

Isn’t it strange that after years of having the traditional format for writing be double-spaced, now in many applications that is no longer true?

I know double spacing is still the standard for print media and journalism.  But much of the internet is a single-space world.  What that says, to me, is that there’s just so damn much content in the world now, we don’t have room for double spacing any more.

Huh.
