My name is Stephanie and it’s been 5 years since I’ve updated my bio on this blog.
There are two things that you should know about me.
I’m a diehard Scandal fan so you may find Popeology sprinkled throughout this blog.
Shonda Rhimes and her characters will be a compass from time to time on this site. I know what you are thinking…
What would Olivia do?
I’ve always had a love for writing. Though it was never reflected in school book reports and research papers. It did show in my personal notebooks. The ones I kept tucked away and out of sight. I started writing screenplays in high school. I majored in journalism in college with a concentration in public relations. Fast forward a few years and jobs later, I sold my house in Vegas. Then spent 4-6 months writing and NOT working in an attempt to break into screenwriting.
Until I realized how much I loved of receiving a steady paycheck and well eating. So I stopped writing.
It wasn’t until baby number one that I started writing again. I launched a blog to help promote my online store. It didn’t take long for me to spend more time blogging then promoting the store.
I was writing on my own blog BizzieMommy.com and I was the Digital Channel Editor for LifetimeMoms.com. I was even guest blogging on other sites.
But life got in the way and I stopped writing.
I took a LONG hiatus. I would come in and out of the blog but couldn’t get my groove back.
The vacation is now over. In fact, Rhimes book, Year of Yes, motivated me to start writing again.
Thank you, Shonda Rhimes.
For the Love of Zucchini
I love zucchini. It’s my favorite vegetable. Don’t be surprised if you find zucchini recipes throughout my blog. My latest obsession a zucchini grilled cheese sandwich. It the best thing since sliced bread…
52-Week Writing Challenge
On April 2017, I began the 52-Week Writing Challenge to force myself to write again. I’ve been trying to write for years but with kids, work, husband, housework, other job, kid activities, cooking or buying dinner, sleeping….
You get the idea…
So I signed up for the 52-week writing challenge and started typing. If you want to follow along with my journey you can visit Finding My (Writing) Flow on Medium.
What I Write About
My favorite things to discuss on BizzieLiving include photography, writing, technology, and entrepreneurship. I’m also adapting one of my screenplays to a novel so you may see some posts on that as well.
My new interests include sustainable living, minimalism, and living for experiences. I’ve been living to work for too long.
I’m trying to fix that.
Other things about me. I am a mom living in Los Angeles working remotely as a UX/Content Strategist a.k.a content geek. I dream of being a digital nomad and traveling the globe.
Traveling the globe, writing and capture everything with my camera. That is my goal.
I have two kids. My son is a hip-hop dancing, Minecraft playing, video making, robot making, December baby. My daughter is a dancing, youtube watching, DIY video making, pre-teen obsessed with adding a puppy to our family.
I’m not sure I want another mouth to feed.
So that’s what I’m all about. Feel free to stop by often. My plan is to write at least once a week.
