Whats the Diffrence?

Recommended Posts

Im sorry, this is kind of stupid, But what is the diffrence between an article and a column? Is one a personal story (column) teaching a lesson, and a article something with no opion?

A column doesn't have a to teach a lesson, but generally speaking you're right.

However, sometimes the line between the two becomes blurred. For instance, my If I Ran Marvel / DC series is listed as an article, but it could very easily be a column, too.

Ok, By the way, When are you going to start no bones about it again?

Thanks, but I'd rather focus on reviews and the various podcasts.

If an idea strikes me, sure, I'll write it. But we'll see.

I thought a column was a reoccurring thing with an overall theme, and an article is just a one shot about a certain subject. I admit I really don't know, but that's what I assumed since columns are usually weekly or daily in newspapers.

Right. The King and I is a column, for instance, because it's all about Kirby and his legacy. If it weren't for the legacy bit, it would just be a Kirby-themed review series. Same goes for Comic Reel-lief: it's a column because Ian examines comic book movies in a slightly different way than your typical review. Tranquil Tirades, however, is a review series because, well, it's a series of reviews. The only linking factor is James' RAGE~!

Yeah, this always confused me too. Like, how the hell did I win best column with a one-shot (well, two-shot) then?

I always thought it would've counted as an article.

Sometimes I find the line between the two a little confusing, I'll admit. Your piece, DW, I can't recall why I placed it under columns.

I thought even my reviews would be considered column in a conspiracy to count me out of "best review" in the mainpage awards...I'll get you yet! :laugh:

James isn't here right now. Let's blame him.
