Hi folks! We've started an organization and are working toward non-profit status. We are in need of a web designer for the initial building of our blog site. We'd like our main page to describe our purpose, and the other pages (tabs inside) will hold our commentary (several writers), volunteer efforts, video links, news, and other areas of interest. We've started it(the blog) already and we have a strong vision of what we want it to look like. Basically, we are using a [url removed, login to view] blog to jumpstart our work. It will be the backbone of the organization.
After realizing that the admin stuff was becoming tedious and more and more difficult, we decided that it will be necessary to reach out to a professional willing to get us going. An error occurred after we made some very minor changes (plugins and theme changes) to our wordpress blog, so it has hindered our progress of adding new posts. There is currently no way into the admin page, but supposedly a simple fix with these error messages. Just can't seem to figure it out. So, more or less we need a web designer willing and able to help us solve this problem, and help us pick up where we have left off. We will need it to look professional, maybe with some kind of animation on the home page or maybe not. That depends on what you can do. We would like to include ads from Google, as well as links to other blogs and agencies we will be working with. We would also like to set up an image library for each of our causes. If at all possible, we'd like to stay within the limits of an already created theme. We have one there already, only we are amateurs at customizing them to their full capability.
Also, we will need you to show us how to make frequent updates to our page as we continue to grow w/ projects. Nothing too complicated, we really need to keep it pretty simple. And since you will be helping work inside the admin pages of the blog (mostly Wordpress and FTP file uploads), the work seems to be fairly easy. Unfortunately, we are quite unfamiliar with CSS Stylesheet changes and need some help making this thing look good!
We have been neglecting the growth of other portions of our organization because of the latest issues we encountered. If we like the work and the vision you help us to create, we may keep you in mind for future updates and other site building. Please feel free to give us some insight to the building of this site. Obviously, we are seeking reasonable quotes for this type of work. Upon finding someone interested, we would love to share whats already there with you. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
