This has been a great experience for our first attempt at crowdsourcing. Kskheen did a great job of following the brief made adjustments as asked.

C-A-L Ranch Stores
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
C-A-L Ranch Stores is a home and ranch store. While our core customer is the traditional farmer and rancher, the everyday homeowner is a staple for our business. C-A-L Ranch Stores sells merchandise that ranges from fencing and feed to clothing, footwear, and sporting goods.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
http://blog.jaxmercantile.com/ - I don't necessarily like the design of this blog but I like how it depicts different types of people that would patronize their store. I like that it drives them back to the store with the store button. I also like that it provides an area for video related media.
http://globetrooper.com/ - I like the clean layout of this theme. I also like the social media icons that link to Facebook and Twitter. We would also want YouTube.
Sorry for the confusion! We are looking for a wordpress theme and not a wep page design! This is for a company blog.
Blog Title: The C-A-L Ranch Hands
Subtitle: "Riding for the Brand"
The blog will just be the one page design but we would like a menu that navigates to multiple types of blog posts. Examples would be:
Featured Products, C-A-L Ranch Experts, C-A-L Ranch Community, Events, and Store
The main goal for our wordpress theme will be to provid C-A-L Ranch customers with useful information and a place to be a part of the community. The purpose of our wordpress page will be to drive traffic to our stores and website. We want our blog to be a place where our customers and subscribers can find relevant and useful information and possibly even contribute.
We'll take care of the content, of course. We just want a clean, professional blog that depicts what C-A-L Ranch is and represents.
Many of our stores incorporate a framed house with a chimney that borders the entrance of our stores. I would like this to be incorporated into our theme.
"A Ranch & Home Store And So Much More!" This has become our slogan and it would be nice to find it somewhere in the theme as well. The attached header that includes this is just for inspiration. We are currently now in Arizona as well and the store locator in the corner is out dated.
We are currently building a new website. The current one is outdated and we'd prefer that you don't use it as inspiration for your design. The colors and logo of course will be the same but the overall layout is changing.
C-A-L Ranch Stores has always been known to the Farmer and Rancher. We would like to create more awareness to expand our customer base. Many of our key categories/departments are listed our home page. It would be nice if some of these key areas could be tastefully depicted in the theme
