Would you pay someone else to write hubs for you? Why or why not?
Assuming it was economically viable for you to do so, would you ever pay a ghostwriter to write hubs for you? Why or why not?
No, but I would for my blogs. This site is based on our personal experiences, so it doesn't seem like it would work. You would need a strong record of statistics and income to show what you could do for someone else
No, because I can not trust them to write originally and plus I do not trust the accuracy of their writing. How do I know that they would not just paraphrase from another article that they found on the internet?
It depends on the topics of the hubs. If it is more on personal experience, I will write it myself. However if it is on technical issues, I may employ a ghostwriter but I will check very carefully to ensure that the writing is unique and of good value.
I know some hubbers pay ghostwriters for hubs to ensure original and better content.
For me no, I would never employ a ghostwriter as I enjoy the act of writing hubs. For me, the writing is my primary reason for hubbing any money I make is a nice bonus. That is not to say that the idea of ghostwriters would not work, it would just not work for me.
No I wouldn't.. I like to write my own stuff. I like to look at my hubs and be proud of them. I couldn't do that if I didn't write them.
I would not for the following reasons;
1. They are very costly. If I need quality work, I have to look for quality writers, meaning I have to dig deep into my pockets to make them happy. I checked one time how much a professional paper would cost and it was like up to $20/page. The cheapest is $13.00. If you do the math, $13 x 2.5 (one hub) = $32.5 per one hub. How long will it take to earn that much in one hub?
2. I would also still have to sit there with them to explain what needs to be included in the hub, and when they are done, I still have to read through it to make sure it was done they way I wanted it done. In other words it is a waste of time because I still have to prop them from the beginning to the end.
3. Writing my own hubs will enhance my writing skills and the techniques of expression. When will I do that if not here where no one is criticized and with time and many attempts, one will advance from one level to the other.
4. I also like the flexibility of writing my own hubs. I am more of a nocturnal and so I am more active when most people have retired to bed. So if I have to pay for someone to write my hubs, I may have to work with their availability.
No because nobody else is dumb enough to work for $10 a month, and that's all I can pay them if I want to break even.
Oops, I didn't read the rest of the question. OK, if it was "economically viable" I might. I see no reason to think someone else can't write hubs just as good as mine.
