The face behind Jan On The Blog

Hi everyone, I’m Jan – the face behind Jan On The Blog. Here’s a bit about me.

Who am I?

I’m a working mom by day and a blogger by night. As the proud mom of a cheeky 1-year old boy, my heart is where my family is.

Where am I from?

I’m originally from Sri Lanka – better known as the pearl of the Indian ocean. But Melbourne, in the land down under, is where I now call home.

What’s a perfect day?

A perfect day is when I’m reading or writing, preferably while sipping a mocha. Harry Potter, Hunger Games, The Grisha Trilogy and The Priory of the Orange Tree are some of the books I keep going back to. You might also find me experimenting in the kitchen or bingeing a show on Netflix. Read more about what I’ve been cooking lately in this post: Lockdown cooking: 5 tried and tested recipes.

What do I do?

I work for an Australian telco company, writing content for internal communications and technical documents. I enjoy making the complex simple and using the right words to drive engagement.

Why do I blog?

I believe words have power. And it brings me joy to use my love for writing to spread positivity and share what I know. That’s why I blog. I hope you find Jan On The Blog entertaining as well as thought-provoking. Have a read of the blog and let me know what you think.

    1. Thanks for joining in Olivia! I loved reading about you.
      Like you, I do enjoy everything about the beach! Luckily I live close to one, so that’s where I often do my walks too.
      Hopefully you get to visit America again some time soon🤞🏽


    1. Thanks, that means a lot. I do try to live by the Spider-Man quote “with great power comes, great responsibility” (not that I’m a massive fan of Spider-Man 😂)

  3. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a few of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome web site!
