I'd ideally like a 2 column design, one that's easy to read, easy to navigate and includes all of the widgets! I'll need some help migrating it over too as I'm not a techie.
I don't want a cutesy "mommy bloggy characters" kind of site that you see in the hundreds. Maybe a retro look...something that incorporates my great new logo (which I got on 99 designs!) and which I'll attach.
My life is chaotic and in the theme of the logo you'll see all that busy working moms manage at once. If there's a subtle and smart way to expand on this, that'd be great. Maybe through pictures...not sure...
I've looked through lots of Wordpress Templates and have seen a few that are interesting but nothing perfect.
Ideally would love to have this site work on smartphones in addition to standard computer screens.
I also want to include a Printable recipe card button (plug-in) so that my recipes will be able to be easily printed out.
I'm open to creative interpretation. I use a few pictures (at least one) per entry, but they're never the same size so I need to make sure this isn't a problem. On the fence about graphic headers vs. logo alone...but I'll leave the creativity up to you!
I'm very comfortable using Wordpress.com and would like to make sure it's a seamless transition to self hosted Wordpress, especially re stats, managing spam, comments, widgets, etc. I already own the domain name and have space secured at GoDaddy so we're all set on that end.
