Knowledge Bombs
The past eight months has been an incredibly busy time. Since Lea and I first started talking about working together last May, it's been a non-stop whirlwind. Lea got her U.S. work visa and moved to the States. I brought her on as my employee. We rebranded our podcast. And somehow found time for our bread–and–butter client services work. We learned a lot. About things neither of us ever planned to learn, but were necessary to help us during these…
Hey! Did Ya Hear?
Just over two years ago, I joined Lea Alcantara as a co-host of the EE Podcast. We had a fantastic run. Great content, great guests, and loyal listeners and sponsors. And while we didn't know it at the time, it was the first step towards the two of us working more formally together. Over the past year, though, we felt a bit constrained talking only about ExpressionEngine. EE is just one of the many tools we use, and EE is…
When I Becomes We
Today is a big day for my little company! Lea Alcantara, my EE Podcast co-host of two years, is joining Emily Lewis Design, LLC as Lead Designer! More than just my co-host, Lea has become a trusted friend and our relationship is the best professional collaboration of my career.
The Power of Community
Community hasn't always been something that was important to me. An introvert and a bit of a loner, I tend to be most comfortable in my own little bubble. Over the past few years, though, community has become a big part of my life as I've discovered how great it feels to be part of something bigger than myself. For my October contribution to The Pastry Box Project, I write about this power of community.
EE Podcast Live & Uncut
A very special episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure! For episode 80, Lea and I were at EECI 2012 US! A completely different episode than we've done before, we had a ton of fun with a record 10 guests participating in trivia challenges and interviews.
Returning to My Editing Roots
I've been an editor longer than anything else I've done in my entire career. It began when I was 15 and was appointed a Section Editor of my high school yearbook. That year, I fell in love with writing and developed a passion for helping other writers communicate. I also discovered I was pretty good at organization, deadlines and details. The following year, I became Editor–in–Chief of that high school yearbook and helped the publication earn a coveted, highly-competitive Silver…
ExpressionEngine Add-on Dev with Mark Croxton
A new episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure! On the heels of our discussion about Stash with Adrienne Travis, Lea and I talk to Stash creator Mark Croxton in episode 79.
EE Template Partials with Adrienne Travis
A new episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure! For episode 78, Lea and I talk to Adrienne Travis who shares her template development approach using partials and the Stash add-on.
ExpressionEngine Search
A new episode of the EE Podcast is available for your listening pleasure! For episode 77, we discuss EE search options from basic core functionality to more complex requirements that need add-ons.
My Project Management Must-Haves
I've always enjoyed project management. I did it professionally for a software company many years ago, and now I do it every day for my freelance business. Over the years, I've learned how essential project management is for just about every project. And my definition of “project” is broad. Not only do I use project management techniques and tools for my client engagements and running my business, but I use it for the projects I'm involved with such as Web…

The Coolest Person I Know

Emily Lewis

Yeah, that would be me: .

I'm a freelance web designer of the standardista variety, which means I get excited about things like valid POSH, microformats and accessibility. I ply my trade from my one-person design studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico 87106 USA.

A Blog Not Limited is my personal blog where I pontificate about web design, web standards, semantics and whatever else strikes my fancy. Head on over to Emily Lewis Design if you'd like to see my work or, even better, hire me.
