Critique this Blog #36: Health Food Lover

Today we're critiquing the blog Health Food Lover. Blogger Michelle posts healthy recipes as well as occasional giveaways. Recent posts include "Wild Edible Weed Dandelion Salad," a "Wholesome Whole Foods" blog carnival, and "Wild Edible Walk and Talk with Sergei Boutenko."
Michelle would like you to help her answer the following questions:

  • Does my sidebar look too busy? Too many adds etc?
  • I want to use my blog when I finish my course (Naturopathy) so I want to keep it professional but I still want it to show my personality. Is there a way to meet in between the two in terms of blog design and the tone in my posts?
  • I'm thinking of making my footer much larger to include a list of my pages, copyright, disclaimer etc. Would this be a good idea?
  • How can I improve my posts?
  • Is my site easy to navigate and to get what it's about?
  • How I can improve my design?
  • How I can increase my readership and subscribers?
  • How can I connect to my readers more?
Readers, take a look at Michelle's blog. do you have any tips for Michelle?
