I agree Faradina, and being a freelance writer, that may sound like I am shooting myself in the foot. However, I always recommend that people do everything for their first site if they can.
This way you understand the value of the work you are looking for. As a writer, I get frustrated with people asking me if I will write for $2-$3/ article. you can get articles that cheap, but you also get what you pay for. Don't expect great content, and don't expect to get someone to work with you for that price.
Personally, i prefer to work with repeat clients, and build up a working relationship, rather than a one time client who i may never hear from again.
I also recommend looking for someone who can trade services and help each other out.
I have a friend who runs a link building service, so we traded off. I wrote him a few articles, and he built links to one of my sites. We both got something done that we hate doing ourselves, and both of our websites are better off for it.
