We are searching for top freelance article writers that are students, teachers, or stay at home moms and dads who would like to earn some extra money while doing what they love; being content writers. If you belong to a writers group and your group would like to publish some of their work and become a guest blogger to gain fans, that would be great as well. http://www.answerblip.com/answerblip-com-is-searching-for-students-and-teachers-to-write-articles
