- Introducing HuffPost Opinion And HuffPost Personal:
So today we are launching two new sections: Opinion and Personal. The new Opinion section will feature a mix of regular columnists and one-off guest writers, commissioned by our Opinion editors to produce smart, authentic, timely and rigorous op-eds. Our goal is to help our audience better understand the breakneck news cycle, and shed light on stories that aren't getting enough attention. We will feature these columnists' bylines prominently across the site, so that you will come to recognize a set of smart, reliable voices you can come back to again and again and again.
. . .
The new Personal section will feature commissioned first-person essays by guest writers, as well as person-first content ― including features, Q&As and interviews written by HuffPost reporters ― exploring the experiences and lives of celebrities, newsmakers and "everyday" individuals.
