    Of course, there's plenty of places to hire ghost writers. Odesk I heard has some quality workers.

    I'd be interested in helping you out. I need a side job. lol

    There are many places to outsource blogs. High Quality as well. You just have to test people out and spend a little. Fiverr, gigbreak, odesk, my three favorite. You just gotta look for the talent and then represent that on your blog. Well worth it once you fin the right ones.

    When you say blog contents, are you talking about short general blog articles for link building and backlinks or are you referring to high quality unique article writing that are designed capture readers, building your network and online presence? There are a huge difference between each other.

    It sounds more like you are trying to hire someone to write something that will make your blog stands out from 100+ million blogs out there, if that is the case I would focus on hiring a US writer. Google specific keyword like quality article writing services.

    Or you can post jobs on freelance sites like odesk etc...

    There are no problems with outsourcing your blog content provided that the writer you have chosen reflects the same passion that you have. The only trouble with outsourcing is if you land a writer who makes generic, lifeless posts. You may need to pay extra to get the good writers.

    Dude the main thing is that most of the big companies outsource there writings
    You can hire some good writer and then tell them to write those articles. If you think you can monetize them by yourself then its cool. But you can also hire another person to check those articles and then finally send you.

    Outsourcing the blog content writing is a very wise idea. It will give you more time to do other tasks, which you are good at. Budget is wise since you know that outsourcing the blog articles while you do the marketing on the other side, will make the business more successful. And our buddies here are correct, make sure that you get a good VA for this. Never haste. Always test the applicants you have. Collect at least 10 applicants and have them go through interview and grammar/english tests. It will be a bit time consuming at the beginning but once the job takes off, things will go on smoothly. Remember that once you hire the wrong writer, which means less time with the search and applicant assessment, you will suffer along the way. Everything will turn out as a mess.

    Instead of outsourcing your content to a third party that has no real interest in your business why don't you try and connect with other blog owners in your niche and ask them to become a contributor. That way they can access your readership and you get yourself some nice and quality content at no cost.

    PM me if you want to talk more about joint ventures, they're far more profitable.

    Outsourcing can be great for business. Odesk is a great place to start. Use the strategies above for finding a great outsourcer, training your outsourcer (download my manuals), and setting the tone for you business. You'd be surprised at what it can do to help grow your blog, and you online business in general.

    Outsourcing is an essential for my business, and tbh I'm pretty picky about people I'm working with. Like others said, you can meet many talented ones in this forum when it comes to writing department.

    May I also suggest you contact with the experts in your area, and ask for their contribution? I've been doing this for years, and getting awesome results. Say, you have a weight loss site, unique articles written by dietitians themselves are always appreciated by audience. At least, in my experience.

    Many experts are not online yet, or they don't use their personal sites for marketing (in a correct way). So, it's a win win situation for all parties.

    There are two reasons why outsourcing has been part of our life now. First, it is cost effective and second it helps you focus more on your core business, this is IF you find the right and reputable person/company who can you be trusted. I suggest, look for a staff leasing company, ask samples and referrals and take it from there.

    • Of course you can outsource almost everything , but I`m not sure if it`s really a good idea.
      I`m afraid that you` re missing a chance of building your personal brand .
      Even if you are not a good writer right now , you can still put some personal twist on the subject you covering in your blog.
      People will start recognizing you , even your style would be awkward in beginning, you can always learn how to a better writer.

      that`s my $0.02

    • Outsourcing blog content will allow you to focus on other aspects of your online business such as link building and SEO. If you find a good writer who is able to create quality content and optimize it for the search engines, you will save time and money over the long run.

    It sure is but from my experience it is rare to find a non native writer that will suit your needs.

    If you find a good outsourcer then you should treasure them as I've found it rather hard to find long lasting relationships, regardless of price.

    Yeah there's no reason why you can't outsource blog content, especially if you don't need it to be written in the most "personal" manner.

    I would advise paying for a quality writer, however - don't fall into the trap of using a low quality/cheap writer.
