Project Description

Project Goal: Present the personal travels of two individuals in a logical fashion to present Day-by-Day Travel which will include the written word, photos and videos. The Professional objective of the website is to build a following of fellow travelers who appreciate the writing, photos and videos of the two authors. The Revenue objective is to generate revenue from AdSense dollars.

Project Tasks:

1. Create a New Logo for “2 To Travel”
2. Create a New Travel Blog Template
3. Create a New Travel Blog – Daily Activity Page Template, designed to provide a chronological story for the day’s activities.
4. Create a Template Layout that provides space/layout for ADSENSE
5. Configure Word Press website for maximum SEO including all plugins for maximum features, function and SEO.
6. Configure a “Members Registration” area where approved Members (subject to Admin review and approval first) can submit their own travel stories for inclusion on the website.
7. Configure a “Local Expert Registration” area where approved travel guides in approved areas can become “authenticated” Local Experts to provide local connections.
8. Configure a “Content Creation Plan” to organize and present all the writings, photos and videos into elegant page layouts which are creatively pleasing to the reader. The template and content design should follow the Tab structure, the Sub-Tab, and the Sub-sub-tab hierarchy which is shown on www.2ToTravel.com. The nesting order should be maintained in this fashion.
9. Configure a “User Account” capability where a complete profile can be inserted (similar to the profile at [url removed, login to view]), and you have “Travel Functions” to A) Create A New Trip, B) Add New Day to Existing Trip, C) Add Media to Library (which can then be inserted into New Trip or New Day or Existing Trip (edit, modify, add or change existing trips)
10. Configure a “Travel Resources” section which compiles a list of best hotels (B&B’s, motels, home exchanges, etc.), restaurants, food resources (local markets, cooking classes, recipes, tv shows, etc.) and Airfare Price Comparison sites (Kayak, Orbitz, TravelZoo, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.)
11. Configure standard “Policies”, “Terms & Conditions”, “Rules of the Road” for the overall site by pulling from other travel sites for disclaimers and conditions.

We have completed some initial research on travel blog websites, so here is the list

We could just buy and install a template as well. So you will need to evaluate whether it is better, faster, cheaper and then just customize it for our purposes.

I like the “first fold” upper portion of the template at [url removed, login to view] and the “bottom fold” lower footer portion of both [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] and the background image in the middle content section of [url removed, login to view] So that is where I’d start from a design standpoint.
