Have you been tired of reading long features or articles online? I have. So the question of how to make those pieces of writing look more interesting on the web page have been spinning my mind not only as a digital media student but also as a online reader.

There are some websites that do a good job of turning long boring texts into more amusing and eye-catchy piece. The article on Salon prompts me to read more by its trick in putting the long article in a justify form. Also, as the body text cover half of the screen, my eye doesn’t feel tired while reading it.

Does long news article have the same trick? Slate’s article on Australian PM is a clear example. Though the first part of the article is mixing up with photo and the links box, the editor did a good job of putting a number of links throughout the article.
