    Well, it appears TheFreshPrince is looking for unpaid interns.

    TheFreshPrince, why don't you post ads around your college campus. College students love proving their "academic superiority" in every subject. Better yet, hold a "contest" around your college campus to determine the best writer and give them various niches to write about. Offer a minuscule reward like $50 or an iTunes gift card to the winner, and then use all of the articles from the content on your website. :cool:

    Great Post Mate! I thought about using my classmates but never in that way. I will try that. But I also want writers I know can make an author profile and will log in and post regularly even if it's only 5X500 word articles/month.

    Good luck on finding writers who will write for free. Most people who will see your thread are either individual free lance writers or content writing companies. You're posting in a section called "hire a free lancer" which a large majority of the members who enter are individuals looking to get paid. Everyone here knows that you can get paid to write. Even if you're passionate on writing about a topic, why not get paid at the same time?

    I wouldn't exactly say that i'm "hating" this thread. I think you're just definitely looking in the wrong place though. After reading your original post, as soon as you mentioned about your college, I was gonna post what Zwielicht said, but he beat me to it:p

    If you think that I am a HATER then yes I am a hater --- of members who try to take advantage of others and ALSO break a few rules in process.... in this section you can only hire members if you are going to PAY for their services... read the rules.

    ~ a "hater" lol.

    P.S.:

    Making it easy for you, read this:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/hire-freelancer/318110-no-contests-crowdsourcing-section.html

    The rule is set by Super Administrator 7878.
    Quoting a relevnt part of that rule:
    This section is intended for employers to post work for hire (that means paid) and connect with freelancers form the forum.
    ~unquote.

    If you want to be an exception, then as the SuperAdmin says, request and get BHW's consent before opening the thread... :)

    P.P.S.:

    REPORTED for breaking the above-mentioned rule.

    5x500 a month for free? That's at least $40/month for quality writing. I would be interested if it paid something, anything. Some people charge $50-$100 for a quality 500 word article.

    If you want free writers, why not offer people a share in the site and its profits? At least that shows some sort of commitment, otherwise you are just using and abusing people.
    You might as well just ask people to give you their money.

    Freelancer doesn't mean that they work for free.
