There are other places that you could have solicited help such as CL or odesk or elance or freelancer. Relying on place is a little risky to get your business needs met. I'm sure you'd much prefer to get responses from people interested in whatever it was you offered...so I am not sure why are you complaining about not finding anyone here to do it. I really am confused by that as a business owner. If people don't want to take my overflow work, I just presume they aren't interested in that project or they are busy. It's not a reflection on them.

Didn't say that. I said I did it because I couldn't find anyone. Odesk and elance and such are horrible for finding people to get anything done quickly. I needed the piece in two hours. Past hiring experiences said to come here and grab someone, it's worked in the past. As the deadline loomed, I just did it to get it done since it wasn't working out this time.

Did you try Fiverr? Sometimes you can get some quick attention there. Lots of people looking for gigs.

I didn't even think of Fiverr. Definitely will try that next time, thanks!

I don't think tinasam was complaining, just editing her post to show that the article was no longer available because she finished it.
