Question Need a web designer

Hello everyone. Im a SAHM that just launched my website but I have ZERO experience. I didnt know what SEO/RSS/CMS was until Monday. My problem is I need some advice. I love to write, my website is (kinda sorta) up and running. I have the content but I havent started to advertise because I dont really know what to do next. Im wasting so much time trying to click/drag design and what I need is someone to do this for me. Without any upfront money. LOL am I nuts? Am I even in the right forum? I have no promlem sharing ad revenue or affiliate revenue I just want the headache to go away. How or where do I swap, well, my writing for their design work? I am so frustrated and I know that I need a partner or something I just dont know where to look for one. ANY advice would be appreciated, thanks ladies!

ritewriter, I know you said you have your website up (I assume it's a html site) but have you considered using a Wordpress Blog instead?

They have many advantages:

1) They look good without you having to do any work - just buy a theme (maybe $37) and install it. Take a look at mine. Nice, yes?
www.StartBusinessMentor.com

2) Google loves them. They rank well, and quickly

3) There are a huge range of utilities (called plugins) you can install to help automate the content development for them.

4) RSS is built in - subscribe to mine if you wish to see how it works.

What about an intern? Maybe they can help you set up your website?

Try https://www.odesk.com/ They have all sorts of expertise there that you can hire on a per hour or job basis. Or, more expensive, pay me my consulting rate of $55USD an hour and I'll do it.

I just told you (above)! All I do is content - and it's my only (and more than sufficient<grin>) income.

Just crank up a hosted WP blog, pick a good theme and all the design work is done for you, leaving you free to concentrate on content. Take a look at http://www.allanjamesonline.com/star...or/blog/page/2

I didn't design this, all I did was add my content
