    As it says, how much do you guys write on a daily basis? Or outsource?

    I'm finding it really difficult to keep motivated while writing content. Have any of you got any tips?

    I write and re-write around 8 hours a day Monday - Friday. Im a full time article writer and re-writer. I also do some affiliate marketing too.

    If you ever need any re-writing doing if you can't get motivated, let me know mate. I charge $1.50 for upto 500 words.

    You have probably chosen a wrong niche OP. I personally write about 6 hours/week, and really enjoy it, because i am truly interested in the object of writing and try my best to create the best article online to the topic.

    Writing is the most important part of any IM long-term plan, so you should definitely either find a way to enjoy it or hire someone who is a really good writer for your niche.

    I'm more of an admin. I can spend weeks putting together websites and building templates from scratch. But what i always end up with is a good looking but empty site.

    I need to work on my writingit's very difficult to get started though.

    Nice idea...
    I suck at writing so I'll probably consider marrying an American graduate for that matter.

    Same here. I probably put in about 12 hours a day though, because I write for private clients, then write for my own websites.

    You can easily write 1000 words in an hour. Easily. Sell two 500 word articles at $1/100 words, and you have a $10/hr job, again, easily. Aim higher or you won't even get this easy money (the whole "shoot for the stars" thing...or is it shoot for the moon?...any way, don't hit a comet passing by)

    And as was stated, if you don't want to write, PLENTY of other people will write for you, at possibly cheaper rates. The profit margin will be lower, but your time will be freed up, and don't ever think that time is free. It's the single most expensive factor of production considering you pay with your life.

    How good is the quality when outsourcing people? I don't want spun or rewritten articles. I would like to find people that have an interesting out unique view.

    It depends on where you find your writers. In general, I've noticed that most (not all) of the really low cost writers on freelance boards produce poor quality articles. There are a lot of decent bloggers that will write for moderate pay, though.

    If I'm hiring people, I'll usually do one or two test articles (which I will pay for because I object to writing on spec), before taking people on for bigger batches.

    I tend to write one article per day, sometimes two. Each article requires intensive research, deep thought, and organized structure. I spend about three hours for a very good article each day.

    All my articles are 100% unique, well-structured, and seo ready.

    I write 5-10 posts a day and I do it myself. I only have a couple sites though, so it is not too overwhelming. Outsourcing may be a good choice if you have a lot of sites
