Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my very new blog site ‘Jen to Paper’.
So you’ve probably come to this post to find out why I’ve started a blog, well a few months ago I started sending out a newsletter called Elevenses, putting together weekly collections of eleven things I’d found int the week. It was designed to be enjoyed as a bit of light reading for your tea or coffee break – hence the name Elevenses – and I’ll continue to send it out on an ad-hoc basis going forward; I love putting the collections together and hearing that people enjoy them.
Due to the nature of an email newsletter however, I never really got chance to go into much depth about things in Elevenses or talk about my travels. I wanted a way for me to share my experiences, advice, reviews, photos – anything and everything! This is how the idea of Jen to Paper came about.
I’ve had requests from friends and family to start a travel blog as I’m lucky enough to have travelled to some amazing places in the world. Jen to Paper will primarily be a travel blog but I like to think I have plenty to say for a lifestyle section of the site as well, for when I’m in-between trips.
Although I’ve blogged for corporate sites and news-sites before, lifestyle blogging and blogging about my own life is quite new to me and I’m going to have to try and maintain the belief that people actually want to read about the places I visit or the things I have to say… I really hope you enjoy the site and the content I come to share.
My first posts will be about the places I’ve been to in the past couple of years – Thailand, Sri Lanka, Italy etc. I’ve also got an extensive travel itinerary planned for 2017/18 and can’t wait to start sharing it with you all!
