How much to pay for blog/web site writing?

I’m going to be very busy for a month or so and unable to create content for my blog. As an experiment I’d like to put an ad on Craigslist and try to hire someone to write two or three 150-1500 word articles about home machining and metalworking for me. What would be a fair price to pay that will generate some interest but not bust my bank account?

My web site doesn’t generate any revenue, but it’s a lot cheaper than some hobbies I’ve had, so I’ve decided to spend some money on it to keep it from looking stale.
I’m a little concerned that paying per word will encourage excessively wordy writing. And I don’t know what would be a fair but affordable hourly rate because I don't know how long it would take an average person (non-professional) to write an article.
