#Wordpress. Social media. Motherhood. Life. Food. Let's kick ass!
Introduction

I am Elaine Griffin, owner and principle designer at Elaine Griffin Designs. Also known as Laine (Lay-nee) I’m a freelance WordPress designer, content creator, and speaker. I bring my background as a sociologist, advocate, and educator, to my work and writing, which has been featured on BlogHer and The SITS Girls.

I design beautiful websites and help you take care of all of your print and online marketing needs.

I am an obsessive list maker.

On my business blog, Elaine Griffin Designs, I write easy to follow tutorials about WordPress, social media, SEO, and blogging.

On my personal blog, The Laine List I spill my guts about life, motherhood, and balancing work and family. I also sprinkle in some fun recipe and cocktail posts, and the occasional review.

I am frequently spotted dancing to music in grocery store aisles and to Weather Channel muzac at home.

Working from my home office in Finger Lakes Region of NY, I am a wine lover, and I also enjoy the beauty of living in wine country!

My life pretty much kicks ass.
