Promoting my Atlas Moth Article
A Writing Tip to Spread Your Wings
Generally I had been content with a maximum of five images in an online magazine article. One reason is that some web sites would limit articles to 5 pictures; another is that it can be difficult to find relevant, but free-to-use illustrations for an article.
However, the Atlas moth proved to have many images under the appropriate license. Also, Environmental Graffiti tends to run articles with a higher picture to word ratio than most.
My writing tip is to experiment with different formats for your articles. Consider loading one with numerous pictures; try embedding or linking to a video; or include a sound track. Conversely, write more words but break down the article with more, or fewer, headings.
If you're submitting articles to online magazines, be sure to check with your editor, or re-read the style guide, before making a radical change. But if it's your own blog, seize the opportunity for creative freedom.
Making a small change might lead to success as large as the wing area of the Atlas moth.
