Startup magazines are hard to come by - at least those that pay and those might survive. Just like startup websites, we've got to to be careful.
Craigslist, which transformed from the elite place to look for work to a scam machine, listed a local glossy magazine startup this week. Of course, I opened the posting, hoping it was a legitimate offer. Hah! There would be no payment for the first two issues. There were hopes of payment sometime after that.
Sorry, glossy, I'm not writing for nothing - at least not for you. If I want to write for no pay, I'll donate to a non-profit that tugs at my heart. Maybe I'll write just to entertain myself and keep it locked up on my hard drive or in one of the dozen of notebooks hiding in my house.
How do you feel about doin' sumthin' for nothin'?
