I was introduced to a simple, yet effective web tutorial on building a web start-up: www.youtube.com/carsonified
This was only Part 1 and yet it gave me the motivation to start the process of a site build. I have to admit, I was more than ready to just jump right in (as I usually do) without the proper research. After this informative post from Carsonified though, I realized that it was going to take some time to get it right and that means tweaks, tweaks and yes... more tweaks.
As of right now, I have created the back bones to the site using WordPress. Although WordPress is not as unique as I would like it to be, it is a start for something that needs to get up and running before money can be too heavily invested. I am working through the mechanics of WordPress and trying to find the best way to organize all of the information that I would like the site to hold.
The main purpose of the site will not only be a more informative and intense blog about staying healthy on a budget and treating yourself good on the inside and outside but also a way to take all of the information from countless health magazines and websites and combining it all in one easy to navigate site.
I would like it to be truly interactive with readers being able to post their organic recipes, local store information and even exercises and tips that have worked for them. We hold so much information to ourselves because there is not a forum available to house it all (from the initial research that I have done). This is a way to share everything from clean eating to a green lifestyle. What I hope to achieve is just a better place for people to gain information instead of spending money on magazines that all say the same thing or in some cases, contradict one another. It can honestly be very confusing which is what led me to create my little brain child.
As this site continues to fill in, I will keep blogging and tweeting and soon an official introduction will be made! I hope everyone who has checked into this blog, even just once by accident, will visit my upcoming location and provide feedback to help the site grow.
