In the next year or so I am opening up a website that targets coders and designers. Some features will be a blog (or blogs), categories to submit stuff and also a forum to help build a community.
As of right now I'm planning and studying/learning how to gain contributers and members to the site.
I was thinking of paying for bloggers ($50+) to contribute blog posts and submissions, but how would I gain contributers without paying them for submissions and blog posts also?
This would be my first big site, so I'm not really experienced with startups so any tips would really be appreciated, if there are any blog posts or guides related to my question please link it!
