How Olenick started their custom wordpress themes journey

Company name

idivorce

Overview

Blog for people contemplating, going through, or finished divorcing and moving on with their lives.

Divorce sucks! But sometimes it's the best option and we want something that's upbeat, that shows a supportive community, that makes people feel comfortable and that they can share info with one another. A safe, secure place to hang out while they patch their life back up and move on.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Men and women having relationship troubles, deciding to split, going through the process of splitting up, then moving on with their lives. The idea is to connect people together who are in similar circumstances. This is a community first and foremost; we're not preachy or preaching or judgmental. It isn't, and shouldn't look like, a law or lawyers site. There will be legal info and terminology but it's really about the people. One issue to keep in mind are the children; men and women with kids need various spaces separate from (or at least separable from) those without kids.

Requirements

The site will break down into sections and stages; I'm not sure how to represent that. Sections include areas for women and men to post articles and network w/ one another, areas for men and women to network w/ one another for community, advice, and maybe date (ex: a man might want to ask a woman why their ex is behaving a certain way), children, finance/law, and dating.

Stages include miserable and not sure what to do, decided to split, split and divorcing (whether still living together or not), and divorced/moving on.

The site must allow:
* Staff bloggers to post articles
* Guest bloggers to post articles that can be reviewed
* Community interaction features, esp including bulletin-boards
* Polls would be great
* Navigation that follows the nav requirements for people and stages above; the primary focus should be on the people

The look and feel should pull people into the community; to make them part of the community. It should feel friendly and warm; not cheerful but definitely not gloomy or sterile or like a business or law firm site. Please try to use bold colors; I don't like pastels or washed-out colors.

Most features will be text-based; there may eventually be videos but it's unlikely that we'll have lots of photos, except for photos of the writers.

Try something different. I went w/ 99designs to find something that doesn't look like a dull WordPress blog. Coders say to deliver layered PSD files.
