    I'm planning a new project and would need some 5-6 articles, unfortunately I have a small budget for this so as much as I want to get to premium writing services sites, I'm looking through DP and fiverr. Any other suggestions?

    I made an ad in the BST section but sadly I'm getting PMs from people who think they are good but doesn't seem to know what grammar, conjugation, redundancy are. I consider myself mediocre in English but I can somehow notice when something is not right/doesn't sound right.

    Have you tried Craigslist? I haven’t done any hiring from any of the US Craigslists (yet), but I understand that there are well-educated folks (students, etc) out there who are willing to work at reduced rates (say $5 for a 500-word article). As I say, I haven’t tested this myself yet, but it’s worth a try.

    Hi, I am not sure if your looking for American English or British English? If its the former I can do, but American is different..sorry..PM me what you need I maybe able to help you. By the way I am a Native English Writer from the UK and guess what you get PROPER English written by people who live here..lol

    Try also onlinejobs.ph or Odesk. There are plenty of web content writers there who will do the job for you in a cheaper rate but with quality-driven contents.

    How much are you offering to pay? It's completely true that if you pay peanuts you get monkeys. Up your offer a little bit and you might find some decent writers start showing up...

    I agree with UK_writer - there are some really good writers on these forums but most of us have got some great clients that are happy to pay for quality. I don't know what your rates are but if they are under $10/500 words I wouldn't expect quality. If you are willing to pay more than $2/100 words you will get some great content!

    Unfortunately I'm on a budget and cannot pay a premium price at the moment. I'm not looking for a pro but someone who can get me a better article than what TBS can accomplish.

    Could you not write the article yourself and then pay someone to proof-read and edit it? Your writing doesn't seem that bad at all on here and you will surely find a native English writer to proofread and edit the grammar at a lower cost than if they wrote it from scratch.

    Can you show up your budget for writing a single 500 words article?

    I think this could be the way to go. As a bonus, you'll have an absolute guarantee that the content is original, and not just something that's been paraphrased just enough to get it through Copyscape...

    Try Textbroker.com. You can get good quality there from 4-star authors and great quality from 5-star authors. Check their rates and see what you can afford.

    Really like this idea but I'm really horrible in organizing my thoughts. Will give this a shot and I hope that the research and writing won't take me half a day.

    Instead of 5 or 6 low budget pieces...why not write 4 or 5 yourself and then have one that was professionally written as a "guest post"? That way you have a better chance of getting a top writer for at least some of your posts and hopefully the higher quality posts will serve as link bait for the entire site.

    To me fiverr is a really good place to find writers, there is one person that offers 10 article for 5 bucks.

    I agree text broker is a great website for getting cheap articles.

    True ,maybe you should save up more money so that you can find better quality writers.

    I doubt you have even used fiverr. 10 articles for $5?! If this is even true I can imagine the quality!

    maybe someone who has subscription with articlebuilder can offer that kind of articles, but imho, those should just be used for seo and never for a quality blog.

    What is your budget for a 500 word article and what are the topics you are considering for the articles ?
    I can do it if the rates are reasonable. I cannot write SEO only articles because writing them is really irritating. I write with a free mind and spirit so that the content is good.
    PM me if you feel like.

    'articlebuilder'????

    You mean that 'duplicate content generator', of course.

    Newbie idiot tool. No search engine falls for it - go search for the very first line of the 'demo' article they show on the website. Google can find over 7000 instances of it. So much for 'ultra spun'.
