Hey there, groovers. My name is Lynda, and I’m a freelance content strategist, study nerd, and creative planning addict.
If you like the idea of adding some fun and creativity to your self-education as you cultivate your zone of genius and share it with the world, then I’m your girl (well, I’m your short and chubby chick).
What is Incited Media?
These days, no matter which industry you are in, you need to be great at what you do. Even if you’ve completed a degree in your chosen field, you need to build and share your expertise and knowledge so you can stand out in your niche.
I’m using this platform to share my articles and my magazine, along with printables, resources, and a newsletter, to get you excited about using self-education to cultivate your genius, and content creation to share it (such as blogging, designing playbooks, creating courses, or even publishing a magazine, like I do).
Think of me as your Gen X, hygge-lovin’, study buddy, and let’s become freakin’ rock stars at what we love to do.
Don’t have a passion to follow? Cultivate a zone of genius, instead.
We aren’t all born with a passion to follow. I know I wasn’t. That’s because passion is a feeling, not a job title. When you work hard at building your knowledge and skills, you cultivate a zone of genius, and that is when you start to feel passion for what you are doing.
So, if you don’t know where to start, a bit of self-awareness, self-education, and self-inspiration can steer you in the right direction. Sign up here so you don’t miss out on the research, resources, and content I’ll be sharing. You’ll receive my free “Learning to be me” questionnaire. Print it out and brainstorm and scribble all over it, or use the questions as journal prompts.
Look for themes in your answers to find things that inspire and excite you – this is your starting point to help you discover your zone of genius. (I’ve included 59 niche ideas to help you choose the direction you want to take)
The Incited Media Journal Process
Who says we can’t have fun while we build our knowledge? I developed the Incited Media Journal Process as a way of using my notebook or journal (or even scraps of paper) to capture all the things that inspire me, so I can build a life and business that excites me.
You see, my journals and notebooks are my vision board, business plan, commonplace book for learning, and time capsule all rolled into one! I call them my “incited media” journals because they make me feel inspired and excited (incited). A notebook or journal is the number one tool I use in my work as a content strategist, for my self-education, and also for capturing all of life’s adventures.

I stand proudly at well under five-feet tall, with an arse the size of a planet. I take every opportunity I can to reach high (metaphorically speaking, of course, because I can’t even reach the friggin’ potato chips stashed on the top shelf of my pantry). My bliss is hanging with my hubby and our daughter at our home in the country, or camping with them at the beach. Thankfully, they are both much taller than me and can reach the potato chips stash.
I have a Bachelor of Communication (Journalism), and I work as a freelance content strategist and business educator. I LOVE spending time studying and researching creative self-education strategies and business design.
Wherever I am, you’ll find me sipping a glass of cold water, with a journal or notebook and a stack of pens. I won’t be wearing shoes. I’ll probably be doodling and brainstorming while listening to a podcast or reading a book. It’s what I love to do, so I do it A LOT.
If you want behind-the-scenes updates on my journey as a content creator, journal addict, and self-education nerd, follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn or… all of them! And if you’d like to be study buddies, then sign up so we can stay in touch.
