A lot of bloggers tend to turn to website content writing companies when they need a little help with writing.
There’s nothing wrong with this – I’ve used these services in the past and I’ll probably (definitely) use them again in the future!
Freelance writers can really give you website an extra dimension as their writing style will always differ from yours.
This means that your site/blog will end up feeling a little more diverse and colorful to your regulars/readers.
This article will cover a few options for both bloggers looking for writers and writers looking for work. Check out the list below!

At the start of 2014 Elance and oDesk decided to merge into one platform – before this they were both BIG players in the online content game!
Despite merging, the pair of sites are still distinguished from each other, with their own branding and individual websites. They are both excellent choices for finding freelance work and hiring freelance writers.
It’s the choice of writer that sets these two giants apart from the rest:
- You can hire talented blog post writers
- You can hire longer, more thoughtful article writers
- You can hire story writers
- You can hire proofreaders
- You can hire translators
Simply put – they offer services from all types of writers!
There are many success stories from writers all over the world on these two platforms.
I personally know two individuals that have made (and continue to make!) a lot of money by advertising their writing services on Elance (and oDesk of course!).
The one downside to these two sites is their popularity – this means that there is A LOT of competition to handle.
While you should not let this put you off, you should know that it does tend to drive down the per-hour or per-gig rate.
#2 The ProBlogger Job Board
The ProBlogger Job Board is a well known blogger’s job site ( or job board ) that has been up and running for several years now.
It doesn’t exactly have all the ‘bells and whistles’ more modern, dynamic sites have but it still offers great professionals for hire.
It is regularly updated with new jobs and online professionals looking for work – it is well known for producing quality results between clients and workers.
The one downside to the site is the lack of input from the admin itself. You have to carry out all the research into the worker yourself and basically ‘take a chance’ on them being up to standard.
ProBlogger does not endorse any of the ads personally so it’s best you ask for work samples before hiring.

#3 People Per Hour
I stumbled across this site about two years ago now and it never fails to impress me. The thing I like about it most is that it is a scaled down version of Elance.
This means you don’t have to spend hours going through pages and pages of workers. It also means that writers looking for work don’t have to compete with a lot of competition – it works both ways!
People Per Hour has always provided me with quality writers and I’ve only had good experiences with them thus far.
#4 The Warrior Forum
Back to the good old Warrior Forum – the place to find good AND bad internet workers!
No…I’m being a bit harsh there, but the Warrior Forum does tend to pick up it’s fair share of bad press at times.
Anyone can post their service or products there and anyone can make use of these services and products.
I’ve had both good and bad experiences with hiring writers there but there is a lot of choice (and a lot of these writers are cheap to hire!).
You get what you pay for in life (online and offline) so use the workers at the Warrior Forum with a degree of caution. Some are awesome whilst others are not all they’re cracked up to be!
