At the Tico Times we value citizen journalism – which is why we’ve worked so hard to build a platform that incentivizes high quality articles that people will want to read. Unlike most news outlets where it’s often difficult to see the benefits of being a citizen journalist or blogger, our tiered compensation model provides a path for all contributors to compensated for their hard work. We sincerely hope that you’ll join us in our endeavor to bring a sense of ownership back to the world of citizen journalism.
