This is very true. I write for traditional mags (usually, the online versions) and get decent paydays from it - I love writing at Medium b/c I can write what I want and hone my writing skills, but I also very much enjoy the guaranteed pay that comes from writing for a magazine. Plus, it's hard to beat the added exposure for your writing.
