About Me

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie. I am a Developmental Editor and content creator based out of Seattle. During the day, I’m dreaming about reading books and writing blogs while working at my full-time job as a Quality Control Analyst for a digital marketing agency. Although it may sound a bit boring, I make the most out of it! I love learning and have been able to hone my skills in marketing throughout these past two years.

After graduating college this past summer, my boyfriend and our corgi, Hercules, drove 50+ hours from my humble little childhood home in Miami to the bustling city of Seattle. Although I enjoy the copious amounts of coffee and books, I do miss Miami! Sometimes you’ll even catch me writing about it on my blog. Being that I’m  in that awkward phase of adulthood, I’m still figuring things out and have a lot to learn. With that being said, I’m also proud of where I am right now and know that I have plenty of insight and knowledge to share with my fellow peers. I spend plenty of my time exploring the city, optimizing my online platform with awesome content, and unsubscribing to way too many unread newsletters.

Aside from my blog, I also frequent other social media platforms from Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube. I love talking about marketing, building your brand, and of course, books! I’m a huge fan of keyboard shortcuts, coffee with extra foam on top, and sharing monumental bits of my life with the internet! In my blog, you will find posts from starting your own blog, self-care and self-love, my current reads, awesome thrift store finds, Seattle travel endeavors, and so much more! Like I said, I have a strong background in writing, editing, content creation, and SEO optimization so ease your worries, my friends, this blog has everything you’re looking for!

Creating my own blog has been something I’ve planned on doing for a really long time. Until I realized that there is never a “right” time, so might as well do it now. After we sit on something for so long, it ends up turning into a dream rather than reality. And I knew I didn’t want that to happen to me. As I’m creating my online platform and sharing my story with anyone who wants to hear it, I’m learning that in order to succeed I must have perseverancedetermination, and patience. I’ve built the first two throughout my educational and professional career, but somehow patience seems to falter every now and then. Luckily, my perseverance and determination won’t let me give up. I hope you follow me on the journey, and maybe even inspire you to share your own!
