four part series about using virtual assistants is up at Home Office Warrior.  The series is written from the perspective of a VA.

And for the perspective of someone hiring a VA, check out this lengthy and comprehensive Ultimate Virtual Assistant Guide.  In particular, what I liked about this guide is its realism.  The author acknowledges that he’s had some poor experiences with VAs, but he offers advice on how to avoid those situations.  And the post includes great practical tips on work that’s best suited for outsourcing to a VA, the selection criteria, staying local or hiring out of town, state or even country and a template for time sheets.
