Karen is a journalist who has been blogging with a passion ever since getting the first taste of it some years back in 2008 and finding that it was just so damn addictive, since starting Blazing Minds she have blogged about a wide range of topics from everyday observations to blogging and twitter tips.
In the last few years, she was given the chance to review for local cinema and theatre, while doing this she has also been an avid supporter of local acts and has been seen as one that gives all out honest reviews of anything she covers from small venues to massive events.
She has worked with Hollywood stars, bands, solo artists and much more in the years that she started blogging and there is no sign of her slowing down, as she says, "I love what I do and I'll keep doing it!".
