    OK, I am at the point now where I never want to write niche articles ever again. I have spent the last 4 years building sites and writing the articles for them. Up to this point, I have written about 90% of the articles on my blogs.

    I am looking for place to get high quality (no fluff) articles.

    Sites like iwriter and textbrokers maybe able to deliver quality but the articles lack that "real feel". If I have a site about donkey ass combs, I go all out. I make an about me page with a real picture. I make social accounts and seek out people are into donkeys.

    When you read one of my articles, you would actually think that I am a man, or woman, who's life truly revolves around donkey ass combs.

    Whenever I order a high quality article its always the same old fluff, this also makes it difficult to put multiply articles on my sites.

    I am looking for writers that can do what I do, so I don't have to.

    I truly believe that quality means a lot, especially on you money sites. Just wondering if anyone has good experiences with this type of outsourcing.

    Please don't post any of the BSTs on the forum, I have tried them all and while they are all very well priced and many produce quality articles, I am looking for a place where I can find an individual to work with, long term.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Man, you and I are cut from the same cloth.

    I think it's because I'm not a real blackhatter, LOL. I love the information and perspective here, the resources are incredible - but I spend so much time developing my minisites, putting high-quality original articles and effort into them, I'm definitely not the mass-produced, spinning type.

    I was going to write that I sympathize, but maybe I'll throw my hat in, as no one else has replied.

    I'm a combat veteran and a single parent. I was wounded in Afghanistan, it took me some time to adjust to civilian life, but I'm currently in college studying marketing and computer science, while IM'ing and web developing on the side at home.

    I'm also about to start a hosting reseller business, and I have...let me count real quick...about 8 "project sites," though they're all about 80% complete with the development portion.

    Then comes the writing. The content. ;-)

    If this could work both ways, be financially reasonable for the both of us, I think I'm the person you're looking for. I have zero experience with outsourcing so I can't refer you anywhere, but a job that can help fund my internet marketing hobbies, which are already bootstrapped, is worth going after. And it sounds like we have similar preferences.

    I'm well-read, adequate grasp of the English language, and my words-per-minute must be 99% percentile. LOL.

    I do not have Skype on this computer until Wednesday. I can be reached via email, phone, or Facebook, if you'd like to PM me here. I've never actually done anything writing for pay, though it has always been something I've meant to explore, so I don't know what fair rates are. Just that I'm a qualified writer who understands where you're coming from in regards to your content. You also mentioned long-term, so I think this could be mutually beneficial...depending on what you're looking to pay, and what types of, LOL, donkey combs and the like I'd be writing about.

    Either way, good luck in your search, and post back who you end up with!

    Make your own company, make people to join it, in this case find good writers in your area, give them a room, computer etc, they will write for as you will tell them and will write fast and enough and you will see that it actually costs only a small percentage of what you pay when you borrow minds from some other company to write articles for you.

    In my country it is hard to find people with good grasp on english but i know if i will spend a little money people will come. I am going to start this in a few days as I should concentrate on hosting and marketing issues rather than these amateurish issues from now on, I mean I its obvious that not all owners of big blogs write all their articles themselves or buy articles from some company. Though it is true that once (blogs) they get famous people like us write articles for them, post their links on other sites and bla bla it with friends and girlfriend.

    Think less, work more but not like a labour.

    I'm a professional writer but I'm expensive by BHW standards.

    8 years experience, resume, references and samples. College grad, based in southern USA.

    I write for both the reader and search engines.

    Let me know if I can help you.

    Trial and error - I managed to find one of the best writers on the planet from all places...iwriter. After some cryptic messages (to circumvent the moderated messages queue!) I managed to give the chap my email address and now we work together privately. The guy will do a 700+ word article for $7.50 and the quality is second to none. The good thing with iwriter is that you can trial writers - don't get the quality don't pay for it - just wait for the right one to come along and snare them!

    I have content writers in several languages, what I did is post a part time job offer on local "manpower" sites, try to target students. It took some time, but I have a great team of writers now.

    It's good to see that quality content creation is appreciated and indeed demanded!

    Perhaps I am too late for consideration by the OP as it looks like he has found someone with the right credentials, but I write for online and offline businesses and have some space now to develop one, maybe two long term relationships with members here.

    Please pm me if you need similar high standard articles on a medium to long term basis.

    Regards to all.
