every time someone reads your blog, they pay you

Interesting idea. Will it work? I kinda doubt it. I'd guess that most the accounts right now are free or promotional or something.

The popularity listings is probably the most interesting feature. But if there really is any money to be made, I suspect it will be gamed by some spam-jockey in a trailer park outside Reno, or by a teenager in Romania, before too long.

Plus, the layout isn't anything special. If you could attract some serious writers, maybe this would work. This design isn't going to do it. Right now, it just looks like a bunch of monkeys at typewriters being paid with Monopoly money.

The blogger/adwords incentive model seems much more plausible.
