    I have a number of places I am looking at but I would like to hear from the members. So who do YOU use to write content for your sites? I am not so much interested in article marketing writers, but instead high quality writers that I could use to write content for my actual sites.

    Who do you use and why?

    THANKS!

    I would be interested in the same thing actually, so here's hoping someone has some good ideas out there. :)

    Paid him $120 and he refunded our money. Even after we told him we would wait 3 weeks for the articles.

    Oh well! We tried. Went ahead and ordered these 30 articles thru textbroker

    Thanks for the recommendation though!

    Please check your email. I explained why I refunded your money. You had paid me based on my initial rate of $40 per 500 words. That was one year ago. Since then, I have increased my rates to $1.50 per 100 words and 10X500 word articles will cost you $75 now.

    I have to do immediate refunds because Indian laws around PayPal really suck. I am required to withdraw the balance on a daily basis. If I don't refund, I have to pay you back with my credit card which will cost me more than what you actually sent me.

    Once again, I refunded because my rates have changed. I did send you an email along with the refund though..

    Fweez.com has good prices when they have monthly specials available. Make sure to put in that you want an English speaking person to write the article. I was getting articles for $.60/100 words written by English speakers. Occasionally they would slip in a non-native speaker but it was still decent enough.

    I wouldn't pay their full price rate but the quality with the discount is damn good. Great for filling up higher quality buffer sites. Wouldn't use it for any money pages though.

    Thanks... I guess I need to research more. Your price has doubled, but you're still selling on BHW under the original price? That doesn't seem right. Can't they edit your post for you?

    I read thru your thread and never saw a mention of a rate change. Even at the new rate I am happy if the articles are good. I will have my wife resubmit the payment.

    Sorry for the confusion on my part. I just thought I was getting what was advertised.

    I send Ramsweb a lot of work... he has written no less than 2 thousand articles for me over the past 6 - 8 months or so.

    He offered to discount his price of 7.50 per 500 words due to the volume I sent him and I refused the discount because he is just that good as a writer, uber reliable as a provider and a genuinely good guy.

    And I just paid him the new rate, despite the advertised rate thanks to your recommendation. I hope you're getting a cut. :D

    Really though... I appreciate quality, and appreciate your recommendation. I hope this turns out to be a long term thing for us.

    I am writing to BigBuddy now. He is a very helpful mod and I can hopefully get that initial post changed now. Thanks for understanding.

    I'm not getting a cut nor would I take it if offered.

    Some day I'll post about why I refuse any kind of profit/cut from a quality provider such as Ramsweb and how that makes my little corner of the world a better place in my opinion.

    I have a friend of mine that is a collage student write my stuff. She writes in her spare time. It is her hobby and she is amazing at it and actually enjoys doing the work. She hurts for cash so I pay her $1.25 per 100 words. She wrote me a 4200 word article for the main page of a site and its 10 times better then I can get anywhere else. I just use her for my main/high quality stuff. I would suggest finding s journalist major or students around your area that you can sit down with face to face and work something out. I may be able to pass a few orders on to her if you don't need anything long term. PM if you want a sample.

    That is not only bad form but also against the rules here; I'd change my post if I were you.

    Responding to a request for a service with your service is a no-no in this neighborhood... plus you trash the joint some as well.

    From what I can tell Ramsweb is one of the best on BHW. I would use him if I could, but I need articles a few times a week in great English and I would be willing to pay a premium for it if it were on par with the quality of Ramsweb

    Since the past few months, i have begun employing real professionals in the niche to write articles for me. It costs a bit but certainly worth it. And as you can imagine, i definitely take pride in that. But the problem is finding professionals who have the time to take on writing work and finding someone who knows at least a bit about how to write a compelling article.
