I want this blog to look very neat and clean. I also want it to be colorful (pictures of fresh healthy food) and modern looking.
I want the front page to be the blog I update regularly. The main column for articles and another one or two columns to be for buttons showing upcoming classes and best books to buy.
I would like a picture of me somewhere close to the top so people can see I am a real person.
In my site you can see that my newsletter is a little hidden. I would like a "Newsletter sign-up" button in the top corner of the blog to increase sign-ups. In that button say get free recipes and a chance to win a free class.
I want a permanent standing video feature (for example like http://www.ethicurean.com/.) I haven't set them up yet, but I want social media links too. And room for some product banners.Also a layered PSD file.
I think this is a nice look: http://www.summertomato.com
Most of all have fun with it! I trust you :)
