*pokes head out*

Oh. Hi there. I’m Jo, the blogger behind The Lens & The Hard Drive. Nice to meet you.

I suppose you’d like to know more about me. Well, I’m happy to oblige.


I am, first and foremost, a Christian and lover of God. That’s the most important thing about me. I’m also a homeschooled student and a self taught violinist, photographer, and writer. Second only to my faith in Christ, I am a fully obsessed bookdragon (I refuse to be labeled as a worm *shudders*) and AIO nerd. In fact, I talk about AIO so much that it’s on another blog, Welcome To Odyssey, run by Gracie!


To begin the beginning of my life with the beginning of my life, I recall that I was born on a cold winter day to a crazy pastoring homeschool family of 7, in a place where the maple trees get tapped every March and we say sorry more times than I care to count. (aka Ontario, Canada, for those of you who don’t get it.)

I started blogging in February of 2018 to further develop my photography and writing, interests that soon became careers I wanted to pursue the previous month. And since then this blog has undergone maybe 10 theme changes, 5 something different blog buttons, and a whole lot of awkward, so please don’t go poking around my archives. 😛


In the past months of blogging (and this whole year, in fact) I’ve gone through a lot of growth, and I’m looking forward to the future, so if you’re into looking at life through my lens, well, here it is. 🙂

Random Facts:

Adventures In Odyssey is the best radio drama ever. No excuses.

The longest side of a triangle has something to do with hippos.

The Wingfeather Saga will reduce me to tears forever.

I once saw a dust tornado. It was very tall.

I’ll throw myself into anything athletic if I have the chance.

In May one time, it was so cold it snowed.

Bacon crumbles are a very good writing snack, fyi.

Camp NaNo has been the death of me.

Bible Bee is awesome, and I’ve loved growing in God’s word more! Hopefully I can join next year. 🙂

Mitch was a great character while he lasted.

I have imaginary friends, also known as my book characters. It’s a great life.
