"Groundhog Day: The Weather Predicting Woodchuck!" went public just before the annual frenzy for this festivity.
The reason is simple. My Google SERP (Search Engine Results Page) for "groundhog inurl:.suite101.com" shows over 900 results. The same search for the Environmental Graffiti URL shows only one article, in which "groundhog" is mentioned in a list of rodents.
There is no point in fighting with fellow authors in one market, if another has not yet been touched.
That's why I decided to fill "the groundhog gap" at Environmental Graffiti, rather than adding to the volume at Suite 101.
Always check the "competition" before deciding where to submit your article. Better yet, make that decision before deciding on the slant or angle your article should take. Different online magazines have different goals: how-to, scientific reference, cute images, children's education, or whatever.
Other Publicity for the Groundhog
May I also thank the IUCN for their assessment of the safety or danger of this species, as reported in "Marmota monax".
