Bits and Pieces
It seems that in our short-attention span society, there is a growing trend for pushing little solutions to little problems.

hello!
As you have said about freelancers,I believe that rather than waiting for some external jobs or service provider,it's better to go directly through the virtual employee service providing companies.Because going through freelancers consumes time and money.
I have experienced this via a company called as marketraise(www.marketraise.com).And it's truly a good service provider for web related services.
Thanks marketraise
