National Columnists’ Day

National Columnists’ Day

Although we may not think of columnists often, they are a significant part of our lives. Columnists Day is dedicated to them. You could ask them anything, from how to manage difficult children to housekeeping advice. This was an evolving field that saw many new ideas and was constantly being developed. Hollywood Gossip was the most popular piece of content. There has been little change in the way that gossip columnists are written. They have been around for as long as there were people to discuss it and a place to record it. Walter Winchell was the most fearful journalist in the 40’s and 30’s. Walter Winchell was a master at using his social and political connections as well as those within the entertainment industry to gather information about people of interest. Sometimes he would reveal the secrets that he had uncovered through his efforts or use that information to trade or blackmail his way to deeper secrets. Movie studios tried to get these columnists to write favorably about them and their work, realizing that their ability to influence the minds their fans could be used to sell incredibly effective merchandise. These techniques are still used today. If you look at the blockbusters coming to theaters and compare the gossip with the stars, you will often see that they overlap. There is no bad publicity. This has been proven by the Hollywood gossip columnists’ romantic scandals. No matter where you live in the world, Dear Abby is the most well-known advice columnist. Dear Abby is a well-known name among advice columnists. She has been referenced in movies and magazines as well as music. Advice columnists in Britain are sometimes called Agony Aunts (or Uncles) because they are known for being older women who have a lot of experience and can offer advice and ideas. As there is no limit to who can be an advice columnist, the only requirement is that you have an opinion and are willing to share it with others. Dear Abby and other columnists were so well-known that they earned Hollywood Walk of Fame status. They have continued to exist beyond the original author. It’s the secret you hoped for. Pauline Phillips, the original “Dear Abby”, has given her pen to her daughter Jeanne Phillips. The iconic face of “Dear Abby”, Pauline Phillips, is still visible on the columns. However, a new generation has taken her pen and passed it to Jeanne Phillips. For advice, you can either write to Dear Abby or Agony Aunt. There are also online forums where you can send emails seeking solid advice from experts. It’s a good idea to thank a columnist for their hard work, even if you already love them.
