For two or three months now, I have been tried to get some projects on Rent a coder website but without any success. One of the latest bids is for this particular project: Looking For A CSS Layout Guru. My bid was USD $125.00.
Few days after I have placed the bid, I haved received a message letting me know that my bid had not been accepted by the buyer. He instead accepted another service provider JLA.
Unfortunately, the buyer decided to choose a different coder's bid (JLA for $100.00).
After another few days I receive this message from the buyer, unclejohn:
You put a bid on one of my recent projects (Looking For A CSS Guru). Unfortunately, I picked another programmer, and I may be in trouble. I'm not sure if they know what they are doing. Here, once again, are the specifications: [...]
I have worked for 5-6 hours on this project [the design of the page was quite wrong in my optinion and too boxy for my taste], changed 34 messages with the buyer and finally:
I will accept your work 100%. I will also write you a good review which details:
1) Your persistence on a difficult and detailed project.
2) Your strong communication skills.
3) Your diligence to meet our exact specifications.
So, I finally found someone willing to give me a chance to prove that I know what I’m doing, I love what I’m doing and I take pride in what I do. I would like to thank to both Rent a coder and unclejohn!
