Anybody here tried ghostwriters?


What was your experience like?


Do you mean this type of ghostwriter?

A ghostwriter is a person who is hired to author texts that are officially credited to another person


Hi Steve, Yes, I was indeed talking about hiring authors to write authoritative articles on your behalf.


I haven’t used a ghostwriter myself but many of my clients come to me to fix the articles and books they’ve hired ghostwriters to write (I run a proofreading and editing service). My sense is that it’s not easy to find a quality ghostwriter because the ghostwriter market is flooded with inexperienced writers.


I’ve had a hard time finding ghostwriters that are able to do technical developer-focused writing (understandably), so unfortunately no I’ve yet to try it out.
