Josh Quittner, the editor of Business 2.0, says he’s asking all his writers to start blogging, and they’re going to get paid extra for it. This is a great idea. Interestingly, the bloggers will be paid a fee based on how much traffic they draw, rather than, say, a flat rate per post. The writers and editors at the Time Inc.-owned magazine deserve to be compensated for the additional work. Now, the thing I wonder about is this: Will the pay-for-performance model affect which topics the writers choose to cover? We’ll keep an eye out.
