Hi guys! On Instagram there’s really no way for you to get to know me or for me to tell you about myself. I’m so excited to start this blog and have a way for me to show more personality.
My name is Gabby Sizemore and I’ve been living on Long Island since the day I was born. Growing up I was one of those horse obsessed girls you all hear about in school 😂. Grades K-12 weren’t really my time to shine. I usually just sat through the day literally not saying a word. Really ask anyone I went to school with I didn’t speak. Thankfully once I left and found a place where I wanted to be things changed. Thats why I find it so funny this is where I ended up today. Being a voice to all of you and also approaching restaurant owners to explain to them how beneficial social media is for their business. I would NEVER have done that back then.
I’ve always had a love for food, but I really never thought it would turn into a huge thing. I went away to school at The University of Rhode Island for Journalism. There was a lot of bouncing around major wise because I truly never felt happy with what I was doing. When I graduated with my degree I sat at my house everyday endlessly applying to jobs in the city, for no money, where I would either have to commute or live in a shoe box apartment. That was definitely not what I wanted.
In my last year of college I started Eating Long Island. I really just started it because I was posting A LOT of food on my personal account and figured nobody wanted to see my food. I made my account and kept it anonymous for about 6 months until I made a mistake and linked it to my personal Facebook. That’s when the cat was out of the bag. Doing that actually was the best thing because everyone knew who I was and I made many connections.
Now that I’ve been doing this for about 3 years, really only 2 years actively its become my entire life. I love searching for different restaurants/ food companies on the island or where I’m traveling to and trying them to share with all of you! My account will forever stay true to the day I started. I will never post something I haven’t tasted and liked. I truly believe that if you do something you love and do it well the rest will come.
I hope you enjoy my future blog posts. If you ever have any questions feel free to send me a message!
