I think setting up a news paper is HARD (ask established publishers of news papers, I expect them also to run losses on their online content). But at least they can compensate by their pressed papers.
The idea of the paper is good, but I think there is a lot of room for improvement. Some points:
1) Abstracts with articles. The main page lists the titles and half a line with no clue on what the article is about. Put proper abstracts below the title (full sentences describing what the article is about, check with news papers how they do that.
Example: (Article 2) has the abstract "The value of Bitcoin has recently [shot up](http://bitcoincharts.com/charts/mtgoxUSD#rg60zvztgSzm
..." Any idea what the article is about?
2) Who are these authors? I see: Vitalik Buterin, Kiba, Nefario, Theodore Minick... who are they? And why should I care to listen to them? What do they know?
3) Categories. Make different sections. You have different audiences, some from a technical (IT) background, some from a financial background. Make it easy for them to find what they are looking for/interested in.
4) Content. Dare to offer different type of articles... not everything bitcoin related. When I look at the titles I get the impression that I can also read that at the forum. Example: featured article about one of the organisations that accept bitcoin as a donation (write the article about the organisation and mention only in the last line (and introduction) that they accept bitcoins as donation).
5) Make people pay, make it less voluntarily. I only see a donation address on the main page. You could offer only part of an article for the first week and have people wait or pay a small fee for the last part. Other idea is to have people pay to have the last part released (when a total of 2 BTC is received at a specific address the rest of the article is opened). The idea is that if people are interested in the article they want to continue reading and will pay for it. But don't do that with all articles.
