Raw Chef Steph, http://www.rawchefsteph.com
I am a starting out Raw Food's nutrition professional who is passionate about spreading news and information about the books, foods, and products I love. Right now I have a pretty simple site, and want to create a blog and start writing articles. I want it to be a good resource for food and nutrition information, having the blog be the main site . I like a simple look still, but just really professional and trustworthy looking. I teach Raw Vegan Culinary classes out of my home, ideally I want people to sign up for a class while on this site.
There will be an e-commerce shop, where people will be able to purchase classes.
Anyone interested in healthy lifestyle and healthy eating. People searching for healthy eating tips on the internet. People looking to learn more about the raw foods lifestyle, or just simply learning how to add more fruits and vegetables into their diet. Outdoorsy people, cooks, natural foodies, people who like organic products, people who would shop at whole foods, etc.
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 :)
