How to Embed oDesk Badge in Your Blog

It has been more than a month since I last posted here.  Other tasks have taken up my time that I was not able to post the other tutorials I have made plus there are those I am still thinking of making.  😀

After taking some tests in oDesk, my friend, Xy-Za of, told me to put my oDesk badge in the sidebar of my blog as proof of my skills.   She said this will also help in attracting contractors whenever they find my blog.

After embedding my oDesk badges in my blog, I thought of creating a tutorial on how to embed them.  But weeks passed and I never got to do it, hehehe.   Until last week (May 14), when sir Jomar Hilario asked the members of the Virtual Assistants Seminar Group in Facebook if someone could make a presentation or tutorial on how to embed oDesk badges in the blog. He showed us an image of the badges similar to the photo on the left.  🙂

I started making one, but didn’t finish it immediately.   One week after, last Monday, sir Jomar commented on his post that nobody did the tutorial.  I decided to finish the tutorial I started and write a post about it.  hehehe.

Anyway, below is the tutorial presentation I made on how to embed oDesk badges to your blog in or platform.

Hope you find it helpful.  🙂

Yehey! It’s 9:25pm in my computer’s clock.  I have finally published the post for my 10th tutorial.  And what better day but on the day of the deadline of submission.  Talk about beating the deadline, hehe.    🙂

Whew.  Double whew!

I have to say.  I’ll never do anything like this again.  Not the posts and the tutorials, of course.  I enjoyed doing it very much.  What I mean was the cramming in doing the tasks.  Based on the schedule I made on the last week of January, I am supposed to finish posting my 10 tutorials by end of February.  And start applying for jobs at oDesk by the 1st week of March.  And it’s already March 14 today.  Whoah!  I am two weeks behind schedule.   But nonetheless, I am glad I finally completed it.  Cramming has definitely caused me stress in the last few days.    I now feel pain in some parts of my body.  Hmmm.. I will be needing a massage this weekend.  🙂

Midnight is the deadline of submission of the VA Assignment. And it's 9:45pm Whew. (Image source :

I have about two hours more before March 14 ends.  I will now be making my resume and finish filling up my profile in oDesk.   🙂
