A Paying Market: What A Concept!

It’s big news in the publishing world when somebody changes their rules and offers to pay money for travel articles. Sadly, content in our arena has become a commodity of plenty, so many outlets like Bootsnall never have paid writers for stories.

But today on Matador, a big headline, Paid Travel Writing from Bootsnall!

I think the Boots folks are going to benefit from putting out the dough, if for no other reason than writers will become very enamored of them, and submit a cascade of content their way. We have been paying writers since our inception, and we already get a huge amount of great stories and photos sent in. it’s just good kharma to pay out a little bit, even if web real estate is so plentiful it doesn’t command a very high price any more.

Here is the announcement on Matador.
