You'll be designing a blog design.
Besides featuring my latest posts, there should also be some sort of "static" element present at the upper part of the website. Some might call it a feature box, where I can highlight important information, such as a place where people can sign up for my newsletter and read a feature article etc.
Examples of what I mean can be found at:
Backlinko.com (the upper part of the website, where you are asked to sign up).
Marieforleo.com (the picture blends in with an arrow that points to the opt-in which I love).
http://lewishowes.com/ (the blue bar with a call-to-action to sign up)
There should ALSO be a nice footer, where people can sign up for my newsletter (see attached pictures or mentioned websites for further inspiration)
