👋 Hi, I’m Elaine, the owner of XOmisse (xo·miss·e)
I design and code for some amazing creatives (like you), publish a fortnightly newsletter and drink a little too much caffeine.
Currently working on:
🚀 A series of courses to help you start, build and grow your site all by yourself – sign up to the newsletter for more!
✨ A MSc in Digital Marketing Management at the University of Westminster, London.
I’ve been creating content online for over a decade, so trust me – I know how important your blog is!
My mission is to arm you with everything you need to grow your blog or freelance business with confidence. No matter how design-esque or tech-savvy you are!
Ready to leap into full-time, enhance your visitor’s experience and grow your traffic? XOmisse is a development studio that partners with creative individuals and small businesses who are ready to make a great impression online.
I believe a site is more than just a pretty design. It should be organised, thought out and goal-oriented. I understand how important it is to have a site that represents you and shows off what you do best. Our services range from blog design to e-commerce solutions, and primarily focus on the development of clean modern sites for the WordPress and Blogger platforms.

So if you’re a content creator looking to step up your game or creative entrepreneur running your own business then I would love to chat with you.
About Elaine Malone
My interest in web development and digital marketing began when I started a personal blog back in 2009. This passion led to me launching XOmisse in May 2013. Through strategic blogging and SEO, I reached over 1 million unique page views within 14 months!
That same year I started writing for Blogosphere (a media company focused on the influencer industry) and interned at a digital marketing and web design agency. After graduating with a BA Hons in Creative Digital Media in 2014, I decided to jump straight into running my own business as a freelance web designer and front-end developer.
In 2016, I moved from Dublin to London to join the Blogosphere team as the Creative Director and Head of Operations working on the print magazine, podcast, events and tech platform. I stepped down from my role at Blogosphere in August 2021 to return to university and study an MSc in Digital Marketing Management.
I’m a learn by doing, sarcastic humoured type who single-handedly keeps Coca-Cola in business. When I’m not working I can be found exploring London with friends, visiting family in Dublin and catching up on the latest TV show.
Features and speaking:
- My articles feature in over 20 issues of Blogosphere covering topics like social media and influencer marketing
- I taught DIY Blog Design at Blogtacular in 2015 and SEO in 2018
- I provided one-on-one advice on the Creative Genius Bar at Blogtacular in 2016 and 2017
- I’ve contributed articles and ebooks for The Plus Collaborative
- I created a Glow your SEO training video and checklist for Grow & Glow
I am fully dedicated to supporting Black Lives Matter, pro-choice, LGBTQIA+, anti-bullying and domestic violence. This website, my social media platforms, community groups and email list is a safe and welcoming place for all. If you don’t share my values, then my platforms may not be for you.
