My intention when starting this article was to continue in the "Natural Disasters" section in Suite 101. Once finished, I realized that it really belonged in "Environmentalism". Fortunately, both sections seem to have a slow turnover of stories.
From my perspective as a writer, magazine sites such as Suite 101 that list the most recent articles in each topic provide a challenging opportunity. Regular readers will check the lists for new articles, so being in a slow-moving section can increase readership simply by being listed. On the other hand, a section with fast turnover might be more popular and therefore gain more readers for a shorter time.
One problem I found while writing this article was the discomfort with drifting away from the "natural disaster" theme. The Botany Sands Aquifer was polluted by human activity, so it is not a "natural" disaster.
As always, I also publicized this article in my DeHaan Services site. "New Hope for the Polluted Botany Sands Aquifer in Australia" discusses the science rather than my writing technique.
If you plan to write in a topic or theme, either be sure that the article fits, or be ready to jump to the correct category.
