Payment: The HuffPost says its new HuffPost Opinion and HuffPost Personal are paid. The amount is not specified. The HuffPost writes, "All published contributions to these new sections are paid."

Tips: The HuffPost also introduces the new sections here in an entry that bids farewell to the old HuffPost contributor platform.
