    Hey guys I plan on starting a blog development business pretty soon and I was looking to build a portfolio by creating a few custom blogs (free of charge of course) for a few people interested.

    You need to have your own url and host, or I can charge you the cost for me to register them, but the site development itself will be free. Once I'm finished you can blog away, add adsense or anything else you want to do with the site, it's all yours.

    Again, I'm doing this free for you so that I can create a basic portfolio for the business.

    here are my sites for reference...
    www.zencollegelife.com
    www.unassociated-press.com
    www.ibrahimhusain.com

    leave a msg here or email me at ibrahim[at]zencollegelife.com

    thanks guys!

    You mean, you will do the projects that I don't have time to do for free? No charge?

    i will set up the blog and you can choose a basic theme. yep free of charge. all I would need is temporary access to your ftp and you need to create a mysql database and give me the info. I'll do the rest.

    I've mastered wordpress installs, i can get it all done rather quickly.

    for themes check out http://themes.wordpress.net/

    if it has a picture banner, you can create your own or I will create a basic photoshop edit for you.

    maybe so, but fantastico isn't offering to do the grunt work for you, and I haven't worked with it. Thanks for stopping by though.

    So, you're just going to edit the wp-config file and that's it? :o

    no that's not it. I'll set up SEO (usually I get to first position in google in about a week), set up all necessary plugins (at least what I deem necessary), and have the site ready to add your content (and ads etc.). Anything beyond this is your business.

    if you aren't interested it's no problem. I'm sure someone who doesn't have much experience with wordpress or blogging is.

    damn i thought haters didn't lurk beyond main forum. Thanks for stopping by guys, you can leave now.

    I could understand the negativity if I was trying to get paid off OT, but I'm just trying to help out a couple of people who don't know how to do this. What's the problem?

    I may be interested. Can you do content too? .

    Just curious though...what parts are you able to add to your portfolio? If you are using a premade theme and such what is your work? Not hatin at all, just don't understand.
