    Hey all. This isn't really groundbreaking information or anything but I still wanted to share. I was able to find good, college educated writers for $6 per 500 words on craigslist and indeed.com. You get $50 free at indeed.com and Craigslist is free too. I got probably 30 applicants from these two places. I offer them 10-20 articles a month at $6 per article. Some take the deal some don't - they're choice. I put the article on one of my sites or sell it on a different site. The best rate I could get with non-native speaking writers was around $3-$4 per 500 words on Odesk, so I'm good paying a few bucks more for a good American writer. Just wanted to let everyone know that people are actually willing to write for this cheap in America and if you need some content Craigslist and Indeed are good places to find writers for cheap. Peace.

    Same price, but it's the quality that matters. From my experience of the BST writers (I've tried several) only one has provided quality content, and he charges more than $6 per 500 words.

    If you just want content for SEO, go for a super cheap writer. If you want something nice and readable by numerous people, expect to spend some money hiring an experienced writer.

    Well it's good that you at least give the content providers here a chance. Do what works for you I guess.

    thanks for the tip, its always harder to get native speakers for a good price and after weeding out the bad ones you can surely get better price/quality ratio than on BHW. Even odesk is not what it once was.

    Totally agree with you. Thats why I always refer to Odesk as Osuck.

    Post a writing project there and you will have dozens of indians and pakistani guys claiming they are great at writing etc. The end result usually looks looks like a drunk and blind monkey randomly picked works and tries to make sentences.

    I've had the exact same experience. Cut out the middleman and get higher quality for the same price. Go local.
