I don't know about US copyright law, but I wouldn't be surprised if
copyright isn't divided into more 'slices' than in Britain. You probably
want to sell 'First US serial rights' (no, I've no idea why 'serial' is
in there') to the magazine (if it's a US magazine). Then you do the
write-up from a blank sheet for a second time, making it clearly
different. That can go on your web page.
