I’m beyond excited to unveil Edit and Post to you. This website has been in the works for so long now that at times I thought it may never materialize, but here it is and here you are. So welcome! It’s my hope that Edit and Post will inspire you to think more closely about your blog, about your business, and about your goals.
My name is Ami and many of you may know me through my wedding and living blogsite Elizabeth Anne Designs or via Twitter. Through Edit and Post, I will be sharing the blogging knowledge that I have gathered over the existence of Elizabeth Anne Designs as well as general business suggestions and tips.
Edit and Post will get quite technical at times, but along the way I’m going to try my best to give clear and concise instructions for those of you looking to code aspects of your site. So if you don’t know a z-index from an index.html or CSS from RSS, you’re in the right place – my discoveries are your discoveries. My goal is for Edit and Post to be a forum for discussion so please comment or contact me with any specific questions that you may have or topics you would like to see on Edit and Post.
To help you get to know me better, here is a little bit about my background…
Founded in October 2007, Elizabeth Anne Designs welcomes thousands of visitors daily and is one of the leading wedding blogs in the industry. Both Elizabeth Anne Designs and Edit and Post are WordPress-based blogsites, for which I do all of the design and coding in addition to editing and publishing each post.
While I may chat about weddings on Elizabeth Anne Designs, my education and experience is in finance and accounting. After graduating from Converse College with Bachelor’s degrees in both Accounting and Finance, the husband and I made our way to the wonderful city of Chicago. I attended DePaul University and received an MS in Finance, and rounded out my education with an MBA from the University of Chicago, where I concentrated in Strategic Management and Organizational Behavior.
I’ve worked in the accounting and finance field for over 11 years, always in mid-size, high-growth companies where I can truly get my hands dirty. If you can’t tell from the way that I run Elizabeth Anne Designs, I love to get into the details and understand all of the complexities and intricacies of a business. I want to know what makes them tick – where their strengths and weaknesses lie, how they handle their human capital, where efficiencies can be gained, where investment is needed, and where technology can improve their business model.
And where the potato chip closet is, of course.
A big thanks goes to Heidi from Idieh Design for creating the Edit and Post logo and to Liene Stevens, Julianne Smith, Cyd Converse, and Heather Crabtree for inspiring me daily and encouraging me to bring Edit and Post to life.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
