Meet Her - Spotlight Writer of the Week

Feature Writer of the Week – Stacey Skrysak

Written by Stacey Skrysak

Tell me a little about yourself.  When and why did you start blogging?

I’m a local news anchor who has traveled the country. It’s been a blast living in different parts of the Midwest and experiencing the four seasons (since I didn’t have that growing up in San Diego). I began blogging when I was pregnant with my triplets. I decided that I could use my tv/social media following as a platform to raise awareness about infertility. Unfortunately, two of my triplets passed away within the first two months of their lives. Through the heartache, I decided to share my life, raw emotions and all, with the world. I started blogging about the grief and what it’s like losing a child. If I can help even just one person with our story, then it’s worth being an open book.

What are some of your favorite sites in internet land?

 Of course HVFH!!! So many topics and delicious recipes to explore! I also love reading websites on saving money. My fav–Fabulessly Frugal. Any chance to save a few bucks is worth the read!

Walk us through a typical day!  You know we would love to see you on video – in your element!

I spend most of my day in my newsroom, helping to create our newscasts and sharing it through the magic of television. Do I get nervous? Nope! I’ve been doing this for well over a decade, so it becomes second nature after awhile.


What story are you most proud of?

My recent article where I wrote a letter to my surviving triplet, Peyton. Even though I’m an open book, I still shelter some parts of my life. This showed my true emotions and heartache, in a completely transparent way. I look forward to the day when I can read to Peyton.
