It’s late at night, and you’re still working.
You’re finishing up writing that blog post for tomorrow, and you’re excited — it just might be your favorite post yet. You hit the preview button… then sigh, disappointed.
How many times have you changed your header? You’ve lost count, and it’s still not right. Your site is a mish-mash of plugins, none of which actually look good together, but they do the job… you guess. You still haven’t figured out how to fix that weird CSS issue, so you add it to your to-do list and hope you have time this weekend. That post you were so proud of? Suddenly you can only see the work you still have left to do.
That’s where I come in. I’m Lisa, the web designer of Elembee.
I believe your website shouldn’t be just another thing you grudgingly add to your to-do list. It shouldn’t mean endless nights of frustration trying to mess with code you don’t really understand. It should just work — as hard as you do.
I don’t do one-size-fits-all templates — because your content isn’t like anyone else’s. I’m not flashy, I’m not trendy, I’m not in-your-face. I believe your site should have a beautiful design that reflects you and your purpose. But I also believe if I’ve done my job well, people won’t notice my work — because they’ll be too busy noticing yours.
Those dreaded nights and weekends you spend messing with code and tweaking your website? I lived for them when I was working a desk job and building my blog by night. I spent weekends redesigning my site every three months — for the pure fun of it (nerd alert!). I don’t just love to make things pretty — I love figuring out how to make them work better.
These days? I’ve traded those nights and weekends for something more normal, like catching up on the latest Scandal or Game of Thrones, reading an embarrassing selection of young adult dystopian novels, or taking my dog to run around at the dog park.
And instead of dreading Monday mornings? I’ve traded the desk job for putting those old nights and weekends to use for others — helping people like you put down the Magic Mouse. So you can focus on what you do best, and share your work on a website that makes you just as proud as the work itself.
And maybe even trade some of your working weekends for something more normal, too.
