Start Here


Hey y’all, I’m Kimberly H. Smith and…

I survived chickenpox, Catholic school, cancer, and childbirth.

I was born and raised in south Louisiana and have a B.A. in Theatre from Louisiana State University (LSU) where I minored in Mass Communications. I fulfill my passion for writing here at Being A Wordsmith with lifestyle blogging, sponsored content, and peer connections.

I started blogging in January 2013, because I needed a motivator to complete my murder mystery novel that I had been working on for many years. I published Acting On Her Behalf in October 2013. You can purchase it in paperback or digital format here. I am currently debating whether to write a sequel or adapt my novel into a screenplay. 


Acting On Her Behalf by Kimberly H. Smith

If you learn anything on my site, it’ll be about one of these topics:

  • My self-employed, independent contractor life 
  • Raising an only child (it’s his pre-teen world, Hubby and I are just living in it)
  • My easy rigged recipes
  • Being a Kansas resident who grew up in Louisiana
  • Productivity tips for organization, home improvement, blogging, and social media
  • Entertainment and pop culture
  • And how sarcasm makes my days so much brighter


I also hostTraffic Jam Weekend Linky Party, a weekly online link-up that goes live here on Thursdays at 5:00 pm CST. It fosters a community of bloggers, writers, and entrepreneurs who upload their old and new posts to get more comments and traffic. Posts are chosen by me and my co-hosts as our favorites for the following week’s party.
