One experience does not make a rule. BUT, I have had a great experience with www.guru.com so far. I used to rely on elance but it was filled with so many flakes I just couldn’t take it any more.
Perhaps the same is true with this site, but for now, I’m VERY happy with the people I’ve found to work with. I am working with a guy who has done some article writing for me. He has been very professional and writes very well.
I’ll keep you posted, but NO, I won’t give you his name!! Then his rates will go up!!!
