About Morgan

Morgan Shanahan (that’s me) is a professional blogger and screenwriter living in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley (aka“The818”) with her five-year-old daughter, dashing hubby, and farting trio of dogs. I used to write TV commercials. Yes you’ve seen them.

In addition to over-sharing my personal life (complete with curse words) here on The818.com, I’m an editor at BuzzFeed. I also tweet, pin, and instagram like a boss.

Want to work with The818.com?

I’d love to work with you too!  I hope we’re a good fit. I accept advertising and sponsorships on my site on a limited basis. I’ve worked with some great brands on some incredible campaigns as a blogger, copywriter, and creative (no, YOU’RE a PC) and I’d love to bring my expertise to your party. For money. Otherwise I’ll come to your party, but I’ll leave my expertise at home.

To save time — here is a quick and handy fact sheet about the residents of
The Eight-One-Eight:

Delilah is five. She’s bright but she can’t drive, walk in heels, or skydive yet. She is, as of yet, an only child and she is a girl.

I’m married to Scott. We’re pretty into monogamy. We probably don’t want to try your dating service. We might want to try your couples massage.

We’re a family of enthusiasts! Here’s some stuff we’re enthusiastic about:

Architecture, Photography, Trips to the Zoo, Being nice to earth, Gadgets, Vintage Furniture, Classic Cars, and Hound Dogs…to name a few things.  We also think we’d be pretty into Hawaiian Vacations, but we’ve yet to test that theory.

How do we know that The818.com is legit?  Show us some links and stuff.  Okay.  Here you go –

    Hey! Thanks for the Twitter follow. I’m really enjoying your blog–especially the cursing. And fart mentions.

      You might not enjoy the farting as much if you could smell it through the computer.

    Ohh you’re making me jealous. I used to live in the 818 and I sure do miss it! Now I’m freezing my butt off in Central Pennsylvania. Came across your site through Sway Group and your blog title caught my attention. I’ll be checking back to live vicariously through your 818 life!

    I saw you on GMA. Glad to discover your blog :)

Talk to me. Please. I'm almost always alone or with a toddler.
