Outsourcing – is it bad when you have a little Knowledge?

I’ve just posted a job online with RentACoder for a domain name I’ve had sitting around for the last couple of years. I have the content (two affiliate feeds) and want someone to design a website with a backend facility that allows me to import them (and update the content when the feed changes), not rocket science – probably one to two days work if I had time. The problem is I don’t have time at the minute! But ultimately it comes down to what are two days of my time really worth I guess. I hadn’t really considered it until the bids started coming in…. The first one was $200, I’d probably accept that to get the site done… Continue reading »

Bored Surfing Members 1/3

Several months ago I created a group on Bumpzee, to give me something new to read when I was having a bored surfing moment, it got a few new members and I quite regularly read it’s feed – as do a number of other members. However I’ve been a bit busy recently, what with moving house, decorating and the like, so new additions haven’t been approved. I plan to rectify that in the coming weeks and allow a few more into the community. However be warned my pro-active approach also means that anything I don’t find particularly interesting may be removed as well – current members you have been warned! I’m also going to remove those that haven’t posted recently… Continue reading »

FeedBurner – FeedBlitz – Woohoo!

Alright so it’s probably only for a day and because FeedBlitz got their knickers in a twist, but my FeedBurner RSS subscriber jumped by 530 subscribers! I first read about this at AdesBlog yesterday, where Ades count had gone upto 2,088 subscribers – but inside his account this was his normal amount. I don’t know what mine looks like outside the account – but inside it definitely jumped by 500+. A little further digging showed these all to be FeedBlitz (the email subscription service!). Darren @ ProBlogger is reporting this – and suggesting you take a snapshot (for evidence not personal glory obviously!) FeedBlitz have confessed and said it should all be back to normal and was just a glitch!… Continue reading »
