Generally speaking, I think this project calls for four types of pages. For reference about the substance of the types of pages I'm thinking about, please check out the blog located at MarlerBlog.com. I'm not crazy about the look of the design at all however, I think the site is too cold and impersonal, but the 4 page types seem to work. For style, look and feel design-wise, my favorite site is AaronKellyLaw.com. That site is a full website which includes a blog (this design is for a blog-only), but the design is FANTASTIC. I would love to have something that cool for this project.
As to specific pages, here are my general thoughts, but PLEASE know that I am open to any suggestions or modifications of this. I really want a site that is amazing and cool like the AaronKellyLaw.com site, and substance should follow form for this project. Having said that, here are my thoughts:
1. Home Page: navigation bar for home, Services, About Rich Newsome, Contact and Archives. Needs a subscribe button for RSS subscription, twitter, facebook and Google+ follow. Also needs a "Request Free Information" form on the right side of the blog. Can use a picture of me that I can supply, but a picture is not necessary. Would maybe like a "recent updates" list somewhere on the blog. And finally, definitely need a place for comments on the site. Again, in terms of the substance of the information I would want to convey on the Home Page, MarlerBlog.com seems to have it nailed (not design/look/feel, but substance only).
2. Internal/sub Pages: Need to have internal pages on the site, similar to the "Services" and "Topics" pages MarlerBlog.com has (again, refer to that blog for substance only in terms of the information it presents, not look and feel of its design). I'd also like MAYBE have a navigation bar somewhere, like MarlerBlog has on the left, where I can have Categories for sub pages that will be posts I will be writing. These Categories/Topics would include: Defective Tire Information.; Recalls; Defective Drugs; Personal Injury; Trial Advocacy; Civil Justice; Case News; Legal Cases. For now those categories should work...
3. Need a "contact" page.
4. Need an "archives" page.
