How Long Should My eNewsletter Paragraphs Be?

Good advice on the length of paragraphs. This is coming from
Jeanne Jennings of ClickZ, she writes “Years ago, I read a case study that determined 5.25 lines, no more, is the perfect length for an online paragraph. Though not fanatical about it, I do try to keep my paragraphs within this guideline. To accomplish this, we broke long paragraphs into shorter ones.” (Purposely presented break in paragraph to make the point)

I know they should be kept short but I didn’t know of an exact line count. The most important thing is to remember is make sure the paragraphs do not discourage recipients from reading due to their length.
