I'd like a paleo mag for women that is not only tailored to women's workouts, but focuses also on paleo nutrition, female health concerns, mental and spiritual health, as well as reviews on paleo resources and inspirational female paleo role models. I wonder how much it would cost to start up an online mag like this?
    That would be a nice idea . . . maybe a blog to start.

    Though even just a primal/paleo friendly sidebar in existing magazines would be nice, since the demographic is small. Like in Natural Health or Paleo Magazine - even Self or some of the bigger names.

    It could cover primal-friendly hygiene for women (like organic make-up products, Natural Health already does this), parenting (such as dealing with in-laws who don't support your food choices), women's health and fitness, book reviews, etc.

    If anyone wanted to seriously start one I'd be happy to be a contributing writer! I don't have the time to invest in editing such a thing (not for lack of interest though) but I do love to write and would love to contribute to a blog/website for primal women.
    Healthy Bucket List:
    • Summit all of Colorado's 14-ers
    • Hike the Appalachian Trail
    • Do a real pull-up
    • Run a 5k
    • Be "Hot For Training Camp"

    I'm not at a point in my life where I feel I could start an online magazine, but I'd certain love it if someone took these ideas and made them a reality I could help contribute ideas for features!

    www.grokelle.com would direct to your WP blog, and whenever you decide to make it an actual magazine, then you can point it to your new address and keep it as Grokelle.
    I'm kind of a hot mess right now, but there are plenty of smart grokelles on here who I hope will collaborate and start something cool!

    I agree 1 billion%

    There is a decided "women only" vibe from many posters/threads around here lately, which I find disappointing, especially given that the OP is usually not one I associate with such. That said, if ever said magazine were to start I'd buy it for my wife as I would like her to know the primal benefits for women, except apparently I should be reading Shape or Cosmo like the freak I am.

    Perhaps Mark will start a new forum feature where gender exclusive threads can be color coded to avoid giving offense.
    Except when it is Rivvin's hilarious thread for men to grunt about manly things which was promptly invaded by women as quick as you could say saurkraut.

    I couldn't agree more. And thank you, kenn for the helpful info. See, the Grokelles aren't adverse to including the Groks' advice as long as they are contributing in a positive way.

    I would also like to see information pertaining to the changes that occur over time in the female body and their effect on diet/fitness including menarche, fertile years (with perhaps a sidebar about HBC and alternatives), childbearing, lactation, menopause, etc. Just because we are all female doesn't mean we are experiencing the same phase.

    m&f hers is muh fayvrit. the recipes are decent, the recipes in fitness rx for women are pretty nice. if they aren't primal compliant they could easily be made primally

    It would also be cool to feature photos of real paleo/primal women in their before/during/and after phases of getting fit or even before/after photos of skin conditions, etc. and detailing their plan and journey. I like to see actual people, not just models.

    Definitely a good idea. Could also be a Weebly site with multiple blogs written by different people on various topics . . . have a beauty blog, relationships/parenting, success stories, health (women's specific health and health in general) nutrition and fitness - each with its own tab. They've got some easy layouts and it's very easy to set up. In fact, I find it easier than the WP dashboard. (I used Weebly to design the website for the school library I worked at).

    Could make a generic gmail account to use as the initial login and make the password/username known to contributors - but you can also send invites to people to become site administrators so they can add content easily with their existing email accounts as logins.

    If anyone wants to set it up I'm happy to help out - just can't do it myself right now since I am starting a new position and have my own blogs I write. Though I definitely couldn't handle the administration I'd love to be a contributing beauty blogger and hope to have a success story of my own to share within the year. PM me and I'll share my email address if you need to send me an invite on Weebly or WP.
