Hi all, I’m back! Well I think I’m back… Let’s see how this whole blogging thing goes this go-round, shall we?? 🙂

For starters, thank you so much for taking the time to be here, and welcome to Island Tidbits!


For those of you who aren’t familiar with me, my name is Jenn. I’m a St. John transplant, mom to a ridiculously active four-year-old boy and the owner of Explore STJ island tours. I’m also the gal who published News of St. John from 2013 to 2020.

I’m a writer and creator, who decided back in 2020 that I needed a break from blogging. Well guess what? I miss it. So I thought, why not start this up again??

I pondered a bit about whether or not I should even do this. I wondered whether I should start my own site, or if it’d be easier to create content for other businesses on island. And if I did go ahead with this crazy idea – which clearly I did because here we are lol – what would I call it? Well, as you can see, I settled on Island Tidbits because that’s what I’m interested in – providing you all with little tidbits of information about St. John and island life.

I am excited to write about simple things that make me smile. I want to create fun videos that showcase the beautiful places here on St. John, as well as our amazing residents. I’d like to share stories about St. John’s rich history, while showing you all why this place is so special to so many people. I simply want to write and create while sharing my love of this place with all of you.

My plan is to write several  times a week when I have the time between raising my son, traveling and conducting my Explore STJ island tours. (Shameless plug… Sorry! 🙂 ) Don’t feel like checking out the site to see when I’m writing? No problem!

    Jenn- your writing captured my attention after the hurricane a few years back when St. John and st Thomas were hit. Your writing brought all the fear of the goings on- during and after the storm – yr words reached so many !
    Best of luck in this new journey !

    Yay!! I have followed you since the beginning of News of St. John, especially during Irma.

    I looked forward to taking a tour with you the next time I visit St. John!

    Thank you for all you do!!

    So happy to see you back! My husband and I are coming to St. John at the end of January/1st of February for a slightly early celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary 🥂💞 We are behind schedule for visiting- the hurricanes & then Covid & the birth of our 1st grandson have delayed us so now we planned around the anniversary. We can’t wait to see how things have recovered from the storms.
