I think a link is good enough. I do have writers who do not have their own blog and do not care to have one. Since my site has almost 10,000 subscribers, just the high amount of traffic and subscriptions is good enough to point people to their article in my opinion. I have Google Adsense on my blog, but I do not believe Google Adsense is the way to go. Since Google pays nothing for adsense unlike in the past, sharing with the writers is something I disagree with you on.
I do have podcast commercials and I share the ad revenues with the show hosts and that works out great for me and the show hosts.
I am trying to translate that into the blog. My idea would be to podcast the writers' articles and then share the ad revenue with them. I see that working very well, but I would share real podcast commercial ad revenue with them, not Google Adsense. The writers of the blog would definitely point people to listen to my podcasts of their blog articles since you cannot that too easily on a blog and maybe the writers don't like their voices anyway or I would call them "shy behind a microphone".
