    writing material or article content is usually objective. however, if you are writing from a specific point of view or want to make your work an opinion or review, you write subjective.
    the majority of information from a great writer is informative which makes writing objective better pieces of work. if you are writing for an audience, subjective work is better. however, writing for yourself or a limited amount of readers will generally result in subjective pieces of content.
    i hope this helps.
    this is a related article that may be of assistance.

    The answer to that question is actually subjective. Many people write objectively only when they are writing about things that are not related to them in any way; but even then it is difficult as your opinion creeps in.

    In our world everything is subjective until you become an authority. When you have enough power you will become objective. A good example in history is people who were condemned for teaching that the world is an oblate spheroid- but at that time everyone's objective viewpoint was that the world was flat and so people who were teaching that the world is actually round were viewed as subjective. By the way, it seems that the ancient Sumerians already knew that the world was round many thousands of years before Europeans (but this argument is also being debated)

    Of course people can believe that their views are entirely objective but until they become popular enough (in the academic world you need tons of citations from PhD's) they remain objective and simply speculative.
