My Daily Grind Roadmap

My Daily Grind Roadmap 4
Bright ideas

In case you hadn’t noticed, this is a brand-new site with some pre-existing content that came from a site I am re-purposing. On the roadmap are the following things, in no particular order:

  • Graphics. The site is pretty bland, and that’s purposeful, but it needs a little pizazz. Not a lot. I don’t want to detract from its purpose: Lots of easily-scannable headlines that you can click if interested.
  • Contact form
  • (Possibly) Some ads
  • (Possibly) Some photos & videos
  • More sources
  • More Menu items. I’ve constructed the top menu items as pages, so essentially, I’ll be adding more pages (and menu items) as time goes on. Some I’m thinking about are Music, Sports, Marketing, and Health. Some sub-categories may be added, too, like Money (under Business), SEO, Blogging, Copywriting, and Affiliate Marketing under Marketing, etc.

If there’s anything you want to add, and I find it a valuable addition, I’ll put it in.
