Super long post from hell thoughts?

Hello

I know everyone would say its better to break a long post down into shorter posts.
I am going to experiment though and create a super long post and see how it does?

5000 words or so with about 90 pictures. lol.

Just wondering if this page will even load for people with slower connections or anyone at all?
Any thought on this?
I tried searching for the longest blog post but kept coming up short.
Any one have a link to a super long blog post.

I am only about 10% done. If anyone is interested on how the post ranks and functions please let me know and I will keep you posted.

If I am a fool for even considering this... oh well.

If it makes sense and is coherent then I don't see any reason to not do it.

Conventional thinking says that 30 posts all linked to each other and whatnot would be more effective for SEO. Ad placement also becomes an issue if you do that sort of thing. Where do you put your 3 adsense units if the page is a mile long? But whatever, screw conventional thinking and try something different -that's cool.

What I wonder about is the readers - 5,000 words is maybe 10 pages (typed a4). For me as a linguist, reading that in one sitting is nothing but for some random person wasting time while at work that's probably too much to read at once. They might have trouble finding their place on this mega page when they come back to the article.

Are you making this thing super long for yourself or for your readers?

thanks for the response James

This is just an experiment. I was searching for super long posts and couldnt find any. There is a probly a reason for that.

You make good points but I figure let it run for a month, see how it functions, and chop it up into smaller posts later on if I want.

I think its more for me than my readers.

Please let us know how the search engines like and how the users like it (if they tell you).
