I have a blog called www.AmericanGoulash.org. I write it just for fun to preseve my family stories, but many of my friends tell me that if I get enough subscribers, I can generate revenue from GoogleAds and fund my first book!
I set up as much of this website as I could and now I'm stuck! I need someone to please help me make a few adjustments to make it perfect.
Here are the modifications I need in full so you understand the scope of the project:
1-Upgrade Wordpress to 3.0.5. I am running an old version, and when I try to upgrade the core, nothing happens. I am afraid that I will mess my blog up by trying to upgrade.
2-Adjust the top tabs (pages) to automatically sort, similar to the functionality of "categories" on the side bar. When I click the "Your Stories," I would like it to automatically sort anything I tagged with the category "your stories"; when I click "Videos" I would like it to automatically sort anything I tagged with the category "Videos;" and when I click "recipes" I would like it to automatically sort anything I tagged with the category "recipes".
3-Assess how I am using Google Adsense. It is currently optimized to get me the most amount of revenue without negatively affecting the experience of my blog readers?
4-(Optional: Not sure if this is possible): Program a Google Ad Bar that searches my website but provides sponsored links at the side in order to generate revenue. When I tried to program this myself, the search bar searched the ENTIRE internet, which is the opposite of what most blog-readers want.
5-Add Social Media tags. I would like SOcial media buttons to automatically pop up with all blog posts, i.e., Diggthis, TweetThis, Like on Facebook, etc.
6-Adjust top right buttons. Instead of having the text "Subscribe to my Newsletter", make a little button similar to the ones I already have in place on the top right panel that has an envelope on it and link it to my newsletter signup. Make sure the buttons are even - for some reason, the spaces between them seem different.
7- (Optional: Not sure if this is possible): Change the Featured Post Widget so that it will randomly rotate posts to feature. Currently, I just have a few links on there that I need to update manually.
8-On the "Your Stories" page, create an additional page where people can submit their work. The submission form should be similar to this in terms of functionality (not color/style): [url removed, login to view]
I will provide you with the proper legal wording so you do not need to worry about the content.
That is all, thank you very much for your time.
