I say yes. I hired a blog editor who is from my country and graduated college here along with an extensive editing background. We even in the same time zone so communicating is pretty easy.

Thanks a lot for your reply...How if the writers aren't US native..Let's say from Indonesia(my country) but their English is excellent. Can I hire them instead of US native writer..?

If you're not a native English speaker then what makes you think your judgement is accurate? Show their writing to native English speakers and let us decide if you should hire them. PM me a sample and I'll be 100% honest with you as I am not selling writing services.

Not really. There are good content writers from all over the world.

Just check the portfolio of content writer before hiring him/her so that you understand what you will be getting in terms of quality.

Any guarantee your article won't contain any grammar errors?

First of all, let me tell you, your English is ok. Just because you are using simple words it doesn't mean that you are weak in English. I also prefer simple words whenever I talk to someone or typing an article in English.
Do you really think native writers knows every word and every grammar mistake of English ??????? In future, if you hire a native writer then just ask him casually the meaning of words like ANAMNESIS, GASCONADE, ENSCONCE, OMPHALOS, etc.

So, my point is it doesn't matter if the writer is the native writer or not, hire him or her. Everybody knows even the god make mistakes

He's right! Not all native English speakers are good writers. What's more, how you believe that they will give a great writing service. The considerable way is to learn how to work with those writer.

Why don't you make your own content then submit that said content to fiverr for someone who may do this for a living? That's what I'd do just to make sure my content is perfect.

I would say yes, but ensure that you hire an editor separately - writers and editors are different professions after all.

As my experiences, not only native writers is good, as long as the writer has good writing skill and knowledges about SEO, so thay they 'll know to arrange the post, the position of SEO keyword to optimaze the page. I 've already used services like that and the results is quite good.

I agree. Using simple words is actually a really good thing, because it makes it a whole lot easier for your website visitors to read and understand your articles, especially for those who are non-native English speakers too.

'Native English speaker' means many things.

I'm English, and copy written by an English person is quite different to that of a US or Aus copy writer.

So who is your target audience and what type of 'English' are they going to be most receptive to?

OP has been back since their last reply to this thread but has abandoned the thread.

No point trying to help someone that isn't reading and acknowledging your contributions.
