I have uploaded Joomla and I am trying to figure it out. I need someone to show me around using the view screen function on Skype when I get stuck. I am a designer and have a lot of experience with websites and also working for people, so I know what it's like to be on your end and I don't want you to do a bunch of stuff for me for nothing. For this job, I need you to know Joomla really well and to be able to explain things to me instead of just fixing things on your own because I need to learn the software. I am working on a project called "Working with a Web Designer," with articles on how to write specifications and to plan websites for common folks who work with freelancers. If you have a sense of humor, stories of CMS related disasters and annoying clients/designers/developers, it will be a big plus. Also, for this job the time you work is really important because for the next 3-4 weeks I will be in the Eastern US and for the next two weeks after that I will be in Italy, which is 7 hours later. Because of my twin toddlers, I can usually only work in the mornings in both places. I would like to be able to ping you when I have a question during the morning hours my time, but I will not expect you to drop everything at any time of the day to help me. I can work around the times that you busy with more lucrative clients. As I said, this is a limited scope project where you are mentoring me so you will get paid for all of your working hours. I need someone who is more of a developer than I am and can advise me on some technical issues that I cannot figure out myself as a designer. You need not have any design skills at all.
Here is a rough draft of a sample video that I will be uploading to my site.
I think it will kind of give you kind of the feel of what I am going for in the style of the site.
I have hired a lot of people on Elance (now Upwork, I guess) and I have made a lot of friends and have had a really good experience. If we have a good relationship I will be happy to recommend you out to clients who will hopefully be paying you more than I do.
