    So Im in need of some high quality content for my blog. I was looking at DP but it looks to be full of unmotivated crappy writers just looking for a quick buck. The warrior forum on the other hand is full of writers that look to be full of promise but they charge lik 10 bucks for a 350 word article n such.

    So where do you guys go for absolutely swashbuckling content but at reasonable prices? Does anyone here have any recommendations? Looking forward guys....

    If you think 10 bucks is unreasonable for "high quality", "swashbuckling" content you're going to have to set your sites a bit lower. The bottom feeders at DP may be just your speed.

    @bigman...

    My suggestion is to think more long term. If you're trying to build quality, authority sites you'll need quality content to match. Over time with the proper focus and commitment you'll be able to build properties that will provide solid, long term traffic and income, and you can build on those to create more and more. That's a goal worth pursuing - and worth investing in.

    Most of the content-buying public is just looking for verbal sludge to slap onto a crappy adsense rag, then rinse and repeat a thousand times. They are not employing any vision or long term strategy and they're severely limiting their opportunities for success.

    If you're planning to build a business, think like a businessman. Find quality people to provide you with quality content and be prepared to pay them a reasonable fee for their services instead of trying to cut them down to the cheap. You should be looking to build relationships with writers that will provide you with the reliable and consistent quality you desire. Give a quality writer a consistent flow of work and they'll make it worth your while, to be sure.

    Personally, I wouldn't write a 350 word article for less than $25 - $30; but I've never had any complaints and I've never had any rejections. I've also received style citations from several publishers. Not trying to brag, just to illustrate the difference between real writing for real success versus the hack stuff. You must decide which way you ultimately want to go.

    Best of luck.

    What I do is find articles and re-write them. Where I get the articles depends upon the niche? For example, for something in banking or finance I might look at a news sites (wallstreet journal, usa today, etc). If I were doing acai, then I would look at ezinearticles and goarticles.

    i use odesk and elance those are good places. I get pretty good quality articles at $5-7 just have to test each writer with one article/kw and then choose the one u like from there.
