Drupal Website Development


395 per package - Virtual OK

I've been building sites since 2008 on the Drupal platform and will set up your website if it's a straightforward site with features such as: blog, announcements, press releases, event calendar + registration, e-commerce (digital download or physical products), and similar needs.

These projects work better when you have a fairly good understanding of what you want your website to accomplish and we then work together to implement a working version that you are able to continue to update (I've deployed 250+ complex projects to date).

I'll prioritize projects that are related to:
* environmental sustainability and green business
* women, children, and families
* music, film, and the arts
* civic and political involvement
* entrepreneurship education for women

Send a description of what you need and we can discuss if there's alignment.

What you will get:

1) Assistance navigating or developing through your list of requirements

2) List of what we will do to implement those requirements (such as the modules that can be used out-of-the-box, or any custom modifications needed)

3) A sandboxed web hosting environment on

4) Implementation of your Drupal site on the site, with your prioritized list of requirements

5) Installation of a pre-built theme (if you need a custom design I will make recommendations, it is not included in this package)
There are some very sharp and clean themes that are free or low-cost if you're just getting started

6) Help with setting up your domain name and attaching the domain name to the hosting

What you will not get

9) Domain Name - you purchase this yourself through a registrar like

10) paid website hosting - hosting is where the website actually "lives", my recommendation is to go to for hosting.
I typically recommend Pantheon because it has a good upgrade path for Drupal backup and update requirements and costs $25/month for basic sites.

Using your own website to reach customers and clients, collect information, sell your products and services, and develop a community is a great way to share your knowledge and skills.

I look forward to supporting you on your journey. Feel free to do a search on my name or existing consulting branch 10K Webdesign to see additional samples.

Training & Qualifications

I taught myself to code in 1999, and have deployed 250+ websites through my own consulting practice (since 2004), and as a staff person to global organizations - you can search me on LinkedIn for some other samples of where I work, speak, and teach.

Teams usually rely on me for architecture, identifying functional specifications, setting up the initial database and overall site framework, fine-tuning and customizing to fit needs, and updating or deploying an up-to-date digital presence that represents the organization. I have had most success with launching membership association, informational, and interactive websites for projects like competitions, open call for proposals, donation, and online communities.

About Monica Dear

~ Making a positive difference: building tools for social justice, tech, education, & community ~ Greetings! I am a web developer and have been creating websites since 1999, and started my practice 10K Webdesign in 2004. I currently work for organizations focused on environmental sustainability, economic justice, and entrepreneurship: typically government, public agencies, trade associations, non-profits, & startups. I primarily work on the Drupal platform but that is for more complex sites: you can use free services and potentially Wordpress if it's an extremely basic site. I can help you with setting up your website to do things like: collecting dues for access (i.e. subscription-based membership website), e-commerce (digital or physical products), calendar of events, member-access "group discussions," blogs, announcements/news, press releases, mappable locations, competition entries and reviews, and more. Here are some of my sample websites You can read more about my personal philosophy and what I'm interested in at: My hope and focus is to build community, foster connectedness, and use my tech & management skills to make a better world. I believe each of us has an ability/obligation to use our knowledge, ideas, & talents to advance fairness, justice, safety, health, sustainability, & wellbeing. My passions are sustainability, social justice, diversity, entrepreneurship, education, & science/tech for positive social change. I am also a writer for different blogs such as Chatbots, Vistage, Women on Business, 30 Steps to Starting your Green Business, Social Networking for Women in Business, and 51 Ways to Build your Community of Clients Online. I teach an online course for the Nonprofit Technology Professional certificate by NTEN on "Develop Good Data Practices" and in the past have also taught "Building a Culture of Diversity and Inclusion." I am a recipient of the 2018 NTENny award. I am the in-house digital products director at Green America, a national nonprofit focused on environmental sustainability and economic justice. I am very interested in connecting with anyone who is committed to making a measurable positive difference through their efforts in entrepreneurship and social justice. Do reach out if there is something you'll want to discuss. Please reach out if there is anything in my description that matches your more
