About Share Your Story Media
I believe in what you do. Let it shine online.
Websites Without the Hassle
I’m Lisa Ratzlaff, and I make websites easier for you.
It’s easy to get stuck working on your website. You may not understand the technology, don’t have the time or desire to learn the art of designing websites, or just may not know where to start. Sometimes, finding the right words is even more difficult.
I want you to get going and create a website that helps you stand out and shares what you’re about. So, I created a collaborative process designed to save you time and simplify the website design and building process.
Your website should work. You’re going to invest time and money in your website, so it should be a valuable marketing tool for you and help you reach your clients.
You want someone to trust. As a solo professional or small business owner, you sometimes have limited resources. You want a website partner who understands your needs and goals and tailors services to fit your business.
So I went to work to make it easier.
Connecting with Stories
This journey began when I started writing my blog Faces from the Neighborhood. I saw faces light up as people told me their stories. I learned of valuable connections made simply by sharing stories.
But most importantly, I watched a community grow between the people I interviewed, my readers, and me. I fell in love with these stories and helping local business owners get the word out about what they do.
Then, I had a blast moving my blog from Blogger to WordPress. I wasn’t totally surprised by that because I have a history of loving and working with technology.
But I also discovered a creativity and passion burning inside me. I loved storytelling and playing around with WordPress. A light turned on inside. How could I combine my passion for stories and creative geekiness into my work?
Finding My Passion
So, I started Share Your Story Media, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I studied design, CSS and html. The more I learned, the more I wanted to know. Another whole world opened up. Web design became the path for letting my creativity out.
It is the work I am meant to do.
A Little About Me
I live in Portland, Oregon, with my beloved Corgi, Dagger.
I love exploring the city by bike and by foot, and learning what each neighborhood has to offer. I also love meeting the people who live and work here.
I continue daily to learn more about design, WordPress, and the coding behind it. Work is like play. I love designing, and getting to know my clients, and I can’t stop.
Thanks for stopping by!
My Creative Team
I collaborate with Veronica Flinn to offer you logo and print branding services along with my website design services.
Veronica believes good design goes beyond aesthetics. It speaks to its audience without words. It conveys large ideas through shape and color.
Veronica works every day to clarify that meaning through simple effective design, well–crafted and intentional. Her love and background in drawing informs her practice.
