I know it's a blog, but if you think about it, isn't a blog article really a classified Ad in disguise? It has an image, text and is displayed using a variety of layouts, sorted by date usually. If you could somehow emulate the blog manager into a classified manager I would consider this to be a very successful project.

I am easy to work with, know how to provide feedback without over-reacting and have no problem answering a ton of questions if that's what is needed to get the project done. Keep me up to date on a regular basis, show me some progress screenshots or allow me to test early versions on a demo server and I'll give you a great score and feedback at the end. Thanks for taking a look at my second OpenCart project.
