I am enjoying Grantland so far (because I’m sure you care about my opinion) but here’s what concerns me: Why the blogs?
Hipster Runoff’s “post,” which is listed as a “Blog Preview” and filed under the Triangle blog, checks in at 1,846 words.
Molly Lambert’s “article" about Alec Baldwin, located in the regular section, is 1,046 words.
Of course, it’s not just about length. But the format — large images mixed in with the text — is the same for both. (Basically, they are both This Recording stories, although Molly and Carles got paid more to write them. As they should.) And yeah, the HR one is a little more listically (certainly that’s not a word) but it seems rather arbitrary.
I just don’t know if the entire thing is all that thought out.
The writing, of course, is quite good.
