Scott Karp reports “The Huffington Post Allows Top Commenters To Become Bloggers.”
I wish he’d asked the obvious question: Will any of these people get paid? As far as I know, Huffington doesn’t pay her bloggers, even the well-known ones.
Apparently the topic didn’t come up. Karp defends Huffingon’s no-pay approach in the comments.
This is a great business model for Huffington.
Let’s hope it’s unsustainable.
