I am seeking to commission a highly motivated, creative and talented self-starter to develop a SINGLE page web site within a $300 budget with a reasonable timeline for completion. If I am satisfied with your work, it is highly likely that I will have a second similar project for you within a month or so (No promises though). I will give this second project directly to you, without tendering it, if I am satisfied with your work.

This web site will be strictly a desktop version. I may commission you at a later date to develop a mobile version of this web site.

I may also commission you to create additional pages for the website at a later date as well.

I will provide all written content as well as logos and photos. There will be very little written or visual content though, as this web site will be primarily a 24/7 automatically updated RSS news feed (with interactive options) dedicated to a particular current event topic - with the ability of both myself and visitors to this web site to leave written text comments. This web site will be a ONE page RSS news feed as well as an interactive blog rolled into one.

Duties & Responsibilities:

- Developing a SINGLE page interactive web site which will be solely dedicated to automatically displaying articles (RSS) along with their external links on a regular ongoing basis, based on a specific current events topic. I would like the headline and accompanying picture (if available from the external web site where the article is based) for each and every article through the RSS news feed to appear on the web site in a scrolling up and down fashion which can be accessed in full by clicking on the displayed headline with picture. The content from the RSS news feed will be based on specific keyword searches on a 24/7 basis

- Create a very user friendly method for me to be able to prescreen any and all automatically generated links from the RSS news feed before I permit any of them to be posted onto the website

- Enable visitors to leave written text comments under each and every external link posted on this web site, with a mandatory name and email registration process required for all visitors wishing to leave such comments

- The ability to add my own written text comments under each and every external link posted on this web site

- The ability to remove any and all written text comments left by both myself and/or visitors to the web site

- Create a very user friendly method for me to be able to prescreen any and all written text comments left by visitors to the web site, before I permit any of them to be posted onto the website

- The ability to manually add and remove external links on the website myself which may or may not appear by way of the RSS news feed

- The ability to manually add and remove my own accompanying written text as well as embedded pictures and videos which may preface certain external links posted to the website by way of both the RSS news feed and my own manual posting.

- The ability to post embedded pictures and videos will apply to me only - not to visitors commenting on this web site

- Enable this web site to generate revenue by way of inserting web banners/banner ads along the left and right columns, which will utilize a central ad server

- Positively affecting the visibility of the website by way of unpaid results in search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, ect.) utilizing web content development, search engine optimization, and search engine submission, to increase the website's traffic to its maximum potential

- The ability to forward articles and/or to post articles from this web site directly onto social media forums (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, ect.)

- Setup this web site so as it is able to receive online PayPal donations (I have a preexisting PayPal account which can be linked)

- A basic in person tutorial to instruct me on how to operate, maintain and update the website myself upon you completing its design

- The ability to professionally analyze the technological requirements for this web site to be hosted and to make specific recommendations accordingly

- Must be able to physically meet in person to sign a legally binding agreement which will stipulate specific terms and conditions upon being commissioned to design this website (i.e., deadline to complete the project, payment schedule, non-disclosure of personal information about the owner of the website to any third parties, ect.) as soon as the details of the project have been ironed out by way of email

Should you be interested in this project, please forward ALL of the following items:

- Your resume

- Your contact information

- Examples of your past work

- The timeline to complete this project based on the above detailed description

- Your best price to complete this project (It MUST be NO MORE than $300 as this is a relatively simple web site to develop, being that it is only ONE page)

While I am prepared to allot the necessary amount of time for you to be able to create a highly professional, innovative, well organized, eye catching, aesthetically pleasing, user friendly and interactive web site; I do need this project completed as soon as possible as it pertains to a timely and in vogue current events topic.

Thank you to all who apply, but only those who fit the qualifications will be contacted.
