Hi,

I'm Jodie.

I'm really interested in social media, Internet culture and innovation ... I tend to have a very short attention span (I blame the internet!) and am always on the lookout for innovative products and services.

I love the internet because it connects people to each other ... & most importantly because people never cease to amaze me!!

J.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I love dogs with spotty coats - they're so pretty and I have two.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
It's cliche - but has to be our baby. Once you've had one, you'll know what I mean.
How do you define cool?
No body says "cool" anymore do they ? :)
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Living, interacting with others, never judging people by their appearance, listening & just getting on with it!
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
It's so unpredictable. Anything could happen.
What is your favorite trend?
Imagination - it's very underrated.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Keeping it short, sweet and to the point.
How do you reset to be creative?
Interacting with a 5 month old baby keeps me "creative".
What inspires or excites you?
The fact there are so many good people on this earth doing so many interesting things!
Predict something awesome for 2020?
9 to 5 jobs are a so 2000!
