Twitter Widgets

Ok- dilemma,I wanted a twitter widget in my sidebar but I wanted it to complement the theme of the site. I didn’t want to use the standard wordpress RSS sidebar widget (which would only show the tweets,without any embellishment)

In my research,I found…

Widgetbox. I’m not too impressed with Widgetbox. I made [...]

Work Today- Paid Tomorrow- awesome!

Wow,so yesterday I signed up for CloudCrowd and spent probably 2 hours exploring their site,reading all the rules and the contract and doing each of the different jobs they have available. Here’s how it works

Job #1- you can scour the internet for terrible foreign websites. We’ve all seen them,they’re poorly translated [...]

New Freelance Writing Opp- On Facebook???

When you look through the [...]

Don't Spell Things Wrong in Your Header,Dummy

While looking for sites to write for,I came across Just Articles,I didn’t apply because they have a spelling error in their header. Maybe I’m lame. I sometimes spell things wrong,but given the subject matter of the site and the prominent placement of the error you’d think they’d have noticed.

Review:PayMeToBlogAboutYou

This site is really hard to use. Their interface is really ridiculous. I’ve worked a few posts for them,but honestly,I just don’t understand why each job shows up in ten places. And when the job is over,shouldn’t it disappear or something? I don’t know. I don’t like this site. I’m thinking [...]
