Jen is the creative force behind Interiors Addict. She has leveraged her skills as a journalist to get access to industry news and interviews, and has turned her hobby blog into a very prominent force. She is also one of the hardest working bloggers I have ever seen.
Interiors Addict is an Australian blog that focuses on interiors and homewares. It currently has more than 150,000 readers (unique visitors) per month, more than 70k Facebook and almost 100k Instagram followers.
It began as a hobby blog in 2011. Jen started working on the blog full time in October, 2012. She wrote about her first fortnight here.
She has shared a lot about her blogging journey.
