Yet another media outlet designed to reinforce consumption by preying on womens' insecurities. Hooray! You've come a long way, baby.

Curious to know if the contributors who originally wrote the stories for the Rogers mags are getting paid extra to run their stores here? How do the rights work?

#2: No, writers do not receive additional compensation or are paid a usage fee. The contract allows for Rogers to run content across all Rogers properties as well as third party sites which they have syndication agreements with (i.e. MSN, Yahoo, Rogers Spotlight etc.).
