    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    I am in the planning process for developing a freeride dirt jump track for my local area. Can you give some advice on where to start with your approach to forecasting costs? Thank you!!

    Thanks for writing.

    The new IMBA Bike Parks book has a section on this. They give sample numbers, but they are lot higher than the numbers I’ve seen.


    How I approach it:

    – Define the requirements. Who’s it for? What’s the site? How much money, generally is there?
    This is the most important part!

    – Figure out what features (pump track, dirt jumps, etc.) will fit.

    – Based on past projects, estimate time and materials and design costs.

    Whenever possible, I try to work on a time and materials basis. For projects that require a fixed bid, it’s normal to add 30% cushion.

    I hope that helps,
