Constance Smith

Constance Smith got started running her first website in 1998, teaching herself to write html from scratch. Since then she has acquired 2 decades of experience in social media and has readers that have stuck with her since the very beginning.

After living a military life for 25 years, she is planting roots in northern Alabama and starting a homestead. It is a new life chapter that she shares with her subscribers, along with the countless recipes and other lifestyle content on her website, Cosmopolitan Cornbread. She believes in “what you see is what you get” and her readers have come to love her honesty and authenticity. Constance chronicles her adventures with her subscribers in both written form as well as video on her YouTube channel. She has a heart for teaching, which is expressed through her blogging, vlogging, speaking engagements, volunteer work and she even homeschooled her three children through graduation.

Constance has appeared in local, national and digital publications, such as: MSN Food & Drink, BuzzFeed, Military Spouse Magazine, Home Gourmet Magazine, The Alaska Post, Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Making it Home Magazine and others.

Constance joins the Mountain Valley Writers Conference with the task of providing the tools to help you take your passion and turn it into profit. She will challenge attendees to know what they love and then find ways to make that into a living wage. She did it in her life so she knows it is something possible and profitable!
