Other Ways of Working

Well the specialist sites do offer some nice features, there's maybe a few other options worth considering.


e-Lancing Sites

People will often advertise their requirements for article sites on the big freelancing sites (see my round up of these). These will basically function as the specialised writing sites do and act as intermediary between the employer and the writer.


Forums such as Digital Point provide a way for people requiring content to contact writers offering writing services. The advantage of this is that both parties can save money by cutting out the middleman. The disadvantage, of course, is that you have to rely on trust and reputation in your dealings, as there is no recourse in the case of a dispute.
