    Hmm,

    Been thinking about outsourcing blog posting on my blog. But I'm not sure how much I should be paying... I was thinking of doing monthly payment, but what's a good range of # of posts and payment?

    use the search bar to find a few service providers on bhw. i have used ones from here, through freelancer and offline contacts. some where based in asia, some in eastern europe. average monthly cost for a decent worker can vary between $300 - $600. i am paying $400 for mine and have been very happy.

    obviously this is generic work, so don't expect to have miracle coder or a blackhat guru for that money ;)

    main thing is to have the tasks ready and planned out for them to do, otherwise they'll keep stalling and you will keep wasting resources.

    you can look around and see how much others pay to have an idea or just ask give a price and see if anyone is willing to accept your offer, if nobody replies it could be that your price is to low and could be increased more and in the end its up to you to choose quantity over quality or the other way around.

    OLD TOPIC but...

    I'm not requiring them to write original content posts, just translating from another language to English. How much should it be per post?

    I don't think I could ever be a writer. It just seems like way too much work for not that much money. But then again it may be because I'm a slow writer.

    I'm paying someone like $20 a month right now (very low I know). They're asking for an increase but I can't have too much... Considering I'm still not making much from my blog
