My (soon to be) former employer wants me to maintain their website (that I built during my time there) as an outside contractor. How much should I charge them?

I put in my two weeks notice last week and since then, my boss has asked me if I wanted to still maintain the company website that I've built them. It's essentially a brochure, so there's not a ton to be done. Basically, I can foresee them wanting me to add some more pictures, add or subtract some product information and maybe post some bulletins. I don't see them asking me to do any overhauls or major, time consuming projects.
We haven't discussed details yet, but I'm sure I will have to soon. I've never done contractual work like this before so I'm not even sure where to start when it comes to how much to charge and stuff. Where should I begin? What are the standard sort of practices when it comes to this kind of service?
Tons of thanks in advance!
