This listing is for a custom website and/or blog design and installation, on your own domain, using Wordpress.org software.
For 99% of the sites I design, I use the Genesis Framework and customized themes. You can see some of the available themes at http://shrsl.com/?~268d.
***The Genesis Framework AND a customized theme IS INCLUDED in the price of this listing, so you DO NOT NEED to purchase Genesis or a theme.**
So, what do you need to get started with a custom designed blog? Just THREE things:
1. First, you'll need a domain name - I'll register that FOR you**, if you don't already have one.
2. Secondly, you'll need hosting for your blog. This listing includes ONE YEAR of hosting.**
3. And third, you'll need to purchase this listing, and we'll need to talk! When you purchase the listing, I will be in touch via email within 24 hours to discuss all the domain name options, the hosting options, and your design needs.
THE DESIGN PROCESS:
After we discuss all the pertinent details, we'll get your domain name registered, and I'll get started with a design idea and your choice of Genesis theme. I'll also help you get hosting set up, and I'll get the basic Wordpress software installed.
Just a quick re-cap, the following items are included in this design package:
- Domain name registration
- Help with hosting set-up
- Wordpress software installation
- Genesis framework and child theme installed
Customization of Genesis theme including:
- Custom background
- Custom header
- Custom sidebar images
- Navigation buttons (if needed)
- Favicon (if wanted)
- Post signature (if wanted)
- Basic widget set-up (this is to manage the sidebars - it's a lot easier than it sounds)
- Matching 125x125 (or 150x150) "share this site" / banner ad
- "Share this site" button set up, with code
- Custom fonts for blog post headings
- Email support as needed
We will go back and forth on the design until it is just right. I will be available by email as you learn this software.
So, that's it! I've been designing websites for over a decade, and I love working with WordPress. I know you'll be happy with your new blog!
As always, if you have any questions, just ask!
Special thanks to Microferk Designs for the use of the graphics in the sample design.
** The domain name and hosting will will need to be renewed every year at the price of $75. I will send a bill on the anniversary date of your hosting/domain name renewal.
