    Outside of writing, which blogging tasks would you assign to a VA?

    Research?
    Finding places to post your blog posts' links on?
    Reaching out to bloggers?
    Comment moderation?
    Making derivative content (ie., turning your content into videos and uploading them, turning them into pdfs and uploading them, etc)
    Form filling? If so, which ones?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

    I never assign my VA's as writers. I can't expect someone who gets paid 700 a month to do a good job writing.

    However here are some tasks I do assign after some teaching:

    -Setting up PBN's
    -Responding to tickets
    -Creating Reports
    -Some other boring work

    Form filling if you have your average cheap VA.

    Type of form filling depends on what needs to be done.

    It's never a good idea to let a VA handle writing unless it's some outer tier Web 2.0 filler stuff.

    By setting up PBNs, are you talking about resurrecting content from Wayback machine or something more fundamental like setting up SILOs?
