Short poll... helps us make sense of who we are and what we do.

ARTICLES (info, definition, encyclopedia, commentary)
NEWS (tech, world, national, entertainment...)
PRODUCTS
REVIEWS
FICTION (stories, poetry)
NON-FICTION (history, art, etc. which is not an article)
TRAVEL
HOW-TO/DIY

You might have several categories above on your site.
If you have a different category, add it... to make things easier, just quote my list and delete the lines which do not apply.

Thanks!

Articles and products.

I use the articles to bring in visitors, but the hook are my products.

That's an awfully fuzzy dividing line for me. If "info" and "commentary" are on one side, what's left for the other side? Is the distinction really between types of subject matter?

Articles and News.

I'm about to enter a niche that will border on travel, although its not a travel site.

To me, info means one thing, commentary (like editorials) is entirely different. One is facts, the other is opinion, perhaps based on facts.

I was hurried earlier today and missed this, which is near specific to what I hope the poll will reveal for each of the participants: Where their strengths lie, and then lead to a second, follow up, on how each of us prepare, produce, and publish. And though my list is "mine" it is a starting point for the purpose of discussion.

Well, me too. But you put them under the same "Articles" header, distinct from "Non-Fiction".

What do you mean, there's a difference between information and opinion? ;) I had an uncle who did not have opinions. Everything that came out of his mouth was incontrovertible fact. It is possible that we have all had uncles-- or, worse, bosses-- like this.

Or, for that matter, between fiction and non-fiction? If you want to argue that the communications satellite in {distant region} does not literally eat e-mail, give me a better explanation. Go ahead. Try :)

There are only two kinds of content. Fiction and Non-Fiction. That's where we start. Then subdivide into categories, then classes, etc (or vis versa... I've slept since then "genus?") ... I suspect folks will get my drift.

Articles (shorts, magazine-type, whizbang 1,000 words or less) reside in one of those two above.
Editorials (which is a type of article, around 500 words or less based on opinion, is one of the two above)

Satellites don't eat anything except power and emails that pass through (since the satellite has no use for them) eventually fall from the sky. (Oddly enough much like the life cycle of websites). Hopefully, we are content writers, not mere satellites. :)

Disquisitions, then. I think of my blather as "articles" but the word count says otherwise.

HOW-TO/DIY
ARTICLES (commentary)


Is what I mostly have on my sites.

This question would've been perfect for a Poll if there was such a capability on this forum. :o :)
