    They will do a great job but they want to have a couple of their links in each post. Should I let them or not?

    It will only be worth it if you have links coming back into you. If they have a couple of links OUT in your blog posts you are losing traffic and fans. You will be a small site in THEIR linkwheel. Is that what you want? Depends on how important this blog is to you.
    If you really must do it, one link is more than sufficient but personally I wouldn't.

    give them an unimportant blog to manage, track / watch what they do and see if you learn anything... then fire them...

    Yea. I totally agree. You definitely don't want your visitors being lead away from your blog. That can't be good...

    Thanks for the replies. I'll probably pass on this idea

    Maybe a few links in the sidebar, but not a link in every post... the passing is a good idea :)

    Nah, i asked for a sample in my niche to test it out and they couldn't even make that first one good. I'm glad i found this site. I've learned a lot, saved myself a lot of time and hopefully one day I can contribute something myself.

    why don't you hire legit article writers? For my opinion, it's great to hire college students who are taking creative writing or journalism courses.
