Megan and Wendy are longtime friends who live in Orange County, CA and are the co-creators of the multimedia lifestyle operation Long Story Short with Megan and Wendy. They are moms who love beauty, pop culture, travel, and more, offering real-life stories and realistic solutions.
Together they have a combined 15+ years of experience creating and publishing digital content in the online space.
In 2014, they hit upload on their first YouTube video. Sometimes antagonistic, sometimes harmonious, they have created over 330+ videos. The magic really happens when the two let the laughs fly.
“I love to throw on your videos for a good laugh!”
Over the last six years, Megan and Wendy have not only created award-nominated videos, they also regularly write informative lifestyle content, created an online course for beginner video creators, and started an online Facebook community of fans known as “Shorties.”
In addition, they launched a spin-off Instagram project called Girls Gone Disney which focuses on their love and exploration of Disneyland.
They will expand the Long Story Short brand in late 2020 with the launch of their brand new podcast.
