I’ve been using Elance.com to find freelance website design work. While I was browsing the new jobs, I came across this interesting job headline. Just another example of why we should read twice before submitting something. I hope this makes you smile. 🙂
Recently, I started working as a freelance website designer on Elance.com (see my Elance profile). Fixing up a client’s site inspired me to try some new features right here on GeekMomMashup.com.
One feature is a new plugin called “Attention Bar.” It’s the piece of code responsible for that nifty yellow bar at the top of the site.
I just created a Facebook page for Geek Mom Mashup, so I decided to announce it with the Attention Bar. The color, text, and link are customizable. The plugin comes with a few ready-made skins, or you can make your own. It’s easy to install and configure, and I like the way the user can hide and reveal the bar.
The Attention Bar is inspired by the Hello Bar, which allows only a limited number of clickthroughs on free accounts. The Attention Bar is free and unbranded, which makes it a better choice for poor bloggers, like me.
If you’re looking for a slick way to get your visitors’ attention, give the Attention Bar a try. Let me know what you think!
P.S. Please check out GeekMomMashup.com on Facebook! 🙂
My daughter is 6 years old. She is under the impression that aging corresponds with “getting bigger.” At her age, that’s true!
On the other hand, my husband and I joke around that I’m shrinking. I’m only 5 feet tall, and the last time we marked our heights on the wall, I was 1/4 inch shorter than last time. I tell my kids it’s because they’re wearing me down as they get older. 🙂
Anyway, my sweet baby girl gave me her thoughts on the “getting bigger” vs. “shrinking” processes my body is going through. Here’s what she said:
Daughter: “Mom, I think you’re all done getting bigger now.”
Me: “Really? Ok.”
Daughter: “Yeah! And now you’re shrinking!” <giggle giggle giggle>
Me: “I’m shrinking?!” <hahahaha>
Daughter: “Well, except for your this part –” <opens arms wide to point at my midsection> “YOUR TUMMY!”
Go ahead and laugh. I may be losing height, but for the record, I’m also working on reducing the “tummy” area. Aren’t kids hilarious?!
I do love back-to-school time! I was one of those nerds who couldn’t wait to get back to school in the fall. I love the smell of freshly-sharpened Ticonderoga pencils and new Crayons. I also love books and bookstores. Browsing the shelves is like a mini-vacation. What can I say? I’m a nerd. 🙂
