I am looking to build two special-interest related blog networks.
The idea is people would sign up to create their own user pages, incorporating blog and other features. The idea would be to create a network of people with similar interests to share their stuff.
* the first is music-related where people can share their music for streaming/download as well as chord charts, lyrics, sheet music & video. There should also be the option for people to post articles, as well the standard blogging feature.
* the second would be a sports/hobby related where people can share detailed trip reports, schedules and videos. As well as the option to post articles.
Both these sites would need a great entrance page which lists things such as latest blogs and articles, most popular songs and featured items. The site would need to allow plenty of opportunities for banner ads as well as adsense.
If there is an option to use a CMS for this, I would be happy, so long it would have the feautures described above.
I have experience with graphic design so could probably take care of that. This is my first request, so I'm totally sure of pricing but looking forward to seeing your bids. There is no huge rush for this but if it get underway in the next couple months that would be great.
