Project Description

Simply Put - I'd like a website built using Movable Type. A simple, user friendly, clean and uncluttered site/blog is what I'm aiming for.

Details - It'll have a main page "" and a few sub-pages "" in order to eventually build it into a blogging network. I only need the design for the main page, but I need it to be user friendly so that I can add the sub-pages easily and adjust them as I need to. I have a hosting account and can purchase the domain name when needed. The website will be from the ground up.


Custom Header with Custom Logo - The logo will need to be easily adapted to reflect the sub-page titles. Examples: "TheSportsGuy" might be the name and another niche site might be about food so the title will need to be "TheFoodGuy" and I'll need to be able to plug in the new words into the logo to keep the look the same but change the name. I'll need to do that for many future pages.

Custom Layout and Design - I'm looking for a simple, user friendly layout. I need to be able to change pictures and background/border colors very easily as each sub-page will have it's own color scheme. I may want to add features and google or affiliate ads in the future and will like the template to be super-easy to add those types of things. I'm not a big fan of clutter and I have a few links to sites that I find appealing, which I can share, if needed.

Links Section - I'll need a links section which has small versions of each sub-page header/banner. I'll cover all content and copy-writing, I simply need the template setup to allow me to plug-in the information.

Google Search Bar - I'll need handy placement of a Google search bar as well as a site search bar. Advice on where to place the search bars as well as Google ad banners would be great.

Welcome but not required - Experience with Blog monetization and practices. Google Adsense and search engine optimization. E-mail setup (Microsoft Outlook hosted with PairNetworks). Popular widget recommendations and any other input that may help blog use and traffic.
