  • We're guessing that at some point in the life of your WordPress blog, you'll need to give another person access to your site—whether for troubleshooting, customization, or a site contributor helping with blog posts. Thankfully, you don’t have to share your personal login to give others access. Instead, we recommend creating a new user for each individual who needs to hop into your WP Dashboard. This allows the user to have their own personal login, and it also means that you can revoke access at any time simply by deleting the user, rather than having to change your personal password. To get started creating a new user profile, just click on the "Users" tab in your WordPress dashboard!

  • Coffee chat! We have a lot of new faces around here @empressthemes, and we'd love to learn more about you. Comment below and introduce yourself! Here's a little bit about us:
EmPress is run by @victoriamstudio (that's me...usually the gal behind our Instagram posts!) and @elembee_, our resident code expert. We've worked together for over 7 years, designing and building custom WordPress websites for style and lifestyle bloggers. And, we're both bloggers ourselves—Victoria has written her blog since the summer of 2008, and Lisa has written hers since the fall of 2010. We're old school!
Victoria lives in San Francisco, where she runs her studio, blog and EmPress, and has also been known to venture up north to Napa a time or two 🍷. In a past life, she actually worked in a winery and taught other people how to make wine (which was part of a winding post-collegiate path that took her to culinary school, then into the food writing world, which led her to blog land—but that's a story for another day). Other fun facts: she's a Korean adoptee (who traveled back to Korea for the first time last year and met her biological family), is also into photography and writing (allll the creative pursuits), and has a French bulldog who is a bit of a diva (see her adventures @misslucyjay).
Lisa lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but will always have a special place in her heart for her native Texas queso and margaritas. When she’s not working on her studio and EmPress, she’s dying her hair various shades of purple, blue, and pink, or testing out a new beauty product or technique. She has a Westie/Jack Russell mix who reluctantly stars on her Instagram, and a camera-shy corgi who occasionally makes a surprise appearance.
Thanks for being here and being a part of our EmPress community! We can't wait to meet you. Say hi 👇
