Steph is a 30something blogger from Canada eh! A used to be journalist who couldn’t give up writing forever, so she created Stephsocial.com.
Steph has worked in social media for over 10 years. She studied journalism in college and wrote for a few websites and online magazines while in school.
One of her more memorable stories included an interview with one of Hugh Hefner’s good friends about what it was like growing up in the playboy mansion (think gum balls, bouncy castles, drugs and affairs with Hugh’s Gf) you can check it out here!
Steph landed her first, full-time writing gig as a staff news reporter at the age of 23. Taking pictures and writing articles covering local politics, business stories and features on ‘local celebs’ kept her busy for years. Her work was published in weekly newspapers across Southern Ontario.
“Not many people get to do what they love for a living. I was… am one of the lucky ones,” she said.
But then social media became a thing! And it was the beginning of the end of the print media industry.
The newspaper industry was dead and with it, a little piece of Steph died too 🙁
Years passed without writing a thing (other than the odd Facebook status) and she couldn’t take it anymore. Many pent up ideas led to the creation of Stephsocial.com!
“With my background as a journalist, it made perfect sense to combine social media marketing with my passion for writing and become a blogger,” she explained.
And so Stephsocial.com was created and has grown beyond what she ever dreamed!
Steph recently published several Ebooks and launched her second website, to separate her two niches- Lifestyle and Business. You can visit her lifestyle blog at stephsocial.com and her business website at fromclicktoconvert.com.
