Interview with Stacey Biemiller Maisch from “From Grind to Whine”
“From Grind to Whine”
I love to write. Writing comes more naturally than speaking to me. I’ve written for a few different publications, but my blog is my own. I love having a place to be honest. So many of us keep our thoughts and feelings to ourselves. Sharing them makes us all realize we’re not alone. Being a parent is wonderful, but crazy is a big part of it!
I’ve been writing for magazines or newspaper columns for over four years, but my blog is my new baby. I just started that this summer. And this baby sleeps through the night!
I am a regular mom. I blog about the funny, crazy, endearing, or maddening stuff that we go through every day.
I love getting and responding to comments. Please stop by and let me know what you think. I’ll respond!
My blog is the place my family and friends go to when they fear I’ve fallen off the face of the earth. Lord knows I can’t remember my own name some days, so my blog is the best place to go to read what’s happening in our family!
I always blog from home. Early morning before the house wakes up is my favorite time, followed by post-bedtime as my favorite times to blog. When I realized my pattern of always writing with either a cup of coffee or a glass of wine was when I knew I had the title for my blog!
I really want to write more than I do. I’d love to write daily, but reality sometimes gets in the way. Right now, I probably blog about twice per week.
The first blog I ever read was “Lost in Suburbia,” which is written by another New Providence mom here in town. In fact, she was my first interview as a reporter for TheAlternativePress.com. She’s an amazing writer; her blog is one of the funniest out there. If you haven’t seen her yet, check her out on Lifetime’s “The Balancing Act” or at her blog: http://lostinsuburbiablog.com/
Other moms inspire me most. I sometimes feel like I’m trudging through the monotony of life with kids and a house that never stays clean. Then I see a friend or acquaintance who goes that extra mile when I would be just done if I were in her shoes. That’s when I get inspired. Those moments make me realize how blessed I am and that every single action has ripple effects that can touch others.
I write a column called “Because I Said So” for TheAlternativePress. Check it out here: http://thealternativepress.com/articles/the-branch-in-the-bathroom
I also write for our local AOL Patch site here: http://newprovidence.patch.com/blog_posts/we-survived-septemberbarely
