We just joined this forum to post a paid listing for our guest blog writer position that pays up to $35.00 a blog post. Which is what good writers should be getting paid. However it seems that there is plenty of global writing willing to charge $2 to $3 an article or blog post, which is under a penny a word.

Our model is a bit different in that we pay for a writers ability to get us a new guest blog post and then create the story.

What do you think of this model? I've scene other blog networks that pay based on page views & even links. What else could help writers get paid what they are really worth?
