Comes down to a personal choice in the end I reckon.
I'm similar to you in that I enjoy writing articles and did a complete rewrite from PLR's to personalise them. Usual problem tho of the time available to do so because of the hated 'dayjob'. But grinding on as I will have the satisfaction of having my first site as a truly personal creation.
However, when it's earning, I want to ramp up quickly so it will be outsourcing for me at that stage. Advantage as Jason says is that I will have set the standard that I want my articles to be at. Plus will only have to spend 5% of the time to personalise them.
Good feeling when it's all your own work, don't you think?
Agree 100% on understanding how it works before you outsource. Otherwise how you know if the quality is good enough?
Would be interested to find out how your writers perform. Not ready to outsource for prob 1 month yet, but would welcome your thoughts.
Regardless of the points above, I would think that if English is not your first language, then outsourcing to a quality writer would be essential. It's tough enough and time consuming enough as it is without a language barrier in the way.
I would like to take on the Spanish market for a number of different niches, but have no idea of how these PLR's would sound to a natural Spanish speaker. So in addition to the normal work with the website design I would have to:
1. Get them translated first to English to read them.
2. Rewrite them in English to my standard.
3. Translate them back into Spanish again to post them.
Onwards & Upwards, my fellow Affiliateers!
If you don't try, you'll always wonder why!
