Maybe they should fund Israel Matzav instead

I never heard of these people, but apparently they are paying 60-70 'contributors' salaries and they have about as much traffic as I do. Make that "were paying." Their funding just dried up.
The magazine, however will not shut its doors as of yet, as its funders have told the staff that they can have the rights to the name Jewcy as well as the magazine’s URL, jewcy.com.

Marcus and other staff will attempt to run the magazine from their homes and will not stop publishing even in the short term, she said.

“We believe in the brand and don’t doubt it for a second,” she told JTA. The site’s traffic has seen a tremendous surge during the past several months and is now at 160,000 visits per month, an all time high, she said.

The staff is now looking for new funders and will continue to sell ads, but will not take a salary for now, nor will it be able to pay its 60-70 contributors.

“The site will not go dark at all; we will continue to publish content, art and features. Nothing will stop,” she said.
Here's Israel Matzav's monthly traffic since February 2008.

You will note that I had over 167,000 page views in January. They had 60-70 contributors and I have little old me.

I'm available :-)

/Mrs. Carl would be thrilled if someone would pay me real money to blog.


If any of you are inclined to fund Israel Matzav, you can do so by going here.

It's my fault.

Sounds kinda like PJM.

But look at PJM's blogroll and look at Jewcy's. The comparison ought to end right there. (And I'm not on PJM's blogroll either).
