Time Out may have just laid off a bunch of staff members from its New York office, but, according to the New York Post, the magazine is still apparently going ahead with plans to launch upwards of 10 digital mags in cities across the U.S. in the next 18 months. LA is, of course, one of those cities. Which you would know, dear Fishbowl reader, since we posted a job listing for a new Time Out Los Angeles web editor last month.

“We’re not going to be opening big prestigious offices, but we will be hiring,” Time Out founder Tony Elliott told the Post.

2. You get to travel. If your passport is filled with stamps, this may be the perfect gig for you. You’ll be working long days and weeks, but jet-setting will be a part of your job. For some, that’s an ideal situation. Read more

Demand Media Looking For Feature Writers, Plans to Actually Pay Them

Well isn’t this a pleasant surprise? Demand Media CEO Richard Rosenblatt sent out a tweet this morning asking for experienced feature writers. Demand Media is a notorious content farmer, paying writers according to the amount of hits their stories get around $5 to $20 a post–so at first we didn’t pay it much attention. But then we saw on Romensko that Rosenblatt plans to really pay these writers he’s looking for. Pay them…like…actual money.

From Demand Media’s job listing:

Demand Media has introduced new payment rates for feature stories. Features writers earn up to $350 for their stories, depending on factors like the experience required to write the story, the complexity of the topic and length of the story. Like all creative professionals who work for Demand Media, feature writers are paid within two business days of their articles being approved by Demand Media’s editorial staff.
