    Depending on my workload, I do one of three things:

    1. I write it myself.
    2. Outsouce (Fiverr etc...)
    3. Use a spinner like TBS or Spinchimp. Personally, I use Spinchimp because it has an interesting Auto Spin feature.

    I'm a content developer (specifically write for SEO) and always write my own. It's top quality and I don't have to check against a plagiarism database, nor do I have to pay someone as much as i'd charge for this level of work.

    I write about 90% of my content. However, I have used Fiverr and guest bloggers with pretty good success.

    I do both (write articles for myself and outsourcing it to someone). I write my own articles if I want to make money with various affiliate and CPA programs. But for my clients who wants their articles to be submitted in a highly standard article directory like Ezine Articles, I would rather outsource it to a friend of mine who is a Platinum Author.

    People have various methods of getting content. Some people user spinners, outsource, or write content themselves.

    I'm not too bad at writing so if I ever needed content I'd just write for myself. If you don't have the time or skills required, you could always outsource.

    Writing all your articles on your own can be really time consuming but it's the best option if you want to rank a site.
    Using spinners is a faster alternative but after all you will see the difference within your traffic and rank.
    As said above, combining both methods will give you a fair balance.

    I always write my own content. By writing my own, I know I'm getting quality work (by as much work as I decide to put in.) I usually only write about what I know, so it's generally pretty easy when you cut out the research part.

    As I've just recently created my blog I write all of my own content. As my site gains some momentum I'll be looking to add some guest bloggers to the mix.

    I do all of my own content as well. Then I take it and run it thru SpinChimp, and use the spun versions for the article directories.

    Then I sping the first paragraph thru Spin Chimp again, and post that t social bookmarking.

    Then I spin one last time and upload to doc sharing sites...

    One original article posted on my blog turns into about 20 to 30 different peices of content sent all over...

    By the way... awhile ago read that some people are using G translator to spin the txts. Let's say... first you translate to German, then to Spanish, then to French, etc, etc and back to English.
    After that, you correct all the grammar mistakes and voila! you have a new txt...
    Need to mention... never tried that but seems like a lot of work :p

    At the moment, I write all of my own content. It's the best way to get high quality content without a big $$$ investment.

    I write spin versions of some articles for link building.

    I used to write all my content. But after a couple of years doing IM, you realize that if you want to move to the next level you have to outsource all the repetitive tasks such as writing and focus on what really brings the bacon

    I do write own my own but for my self only and depending on work load there is sometimes a situation to outsource it from quality writers.

    I use freelancers and only good writers, i use to pay for articles that have minimum 1200 words

    Average i pay for a good article for my blog about 15$
    Its all about the quantity + quality

    Dont forget to make targeted backlinks and pay authority niche related sites to promote your blog, if you wish to enter into a big game in your niche competition.

    Don't be afraid to invest time and money ! :cool:

    Writing your own content is the best thing to do since you know your subject best. However, you can't be writing always and lose focus on what you really want to achieve. This is where outsourcing makes maximum sense and that is why people outsource. Outsourcing allows scaling your business to the next level.

    My two cents worth ;)

    Best,
    Josh
