Who We Are

We’re the largest online community and publication for introverts in the world. For three years in a row, we’ve been ranked the #1 blog for introverts by Feedspot.

Jenn Granneman, founder of Introvert, Dear and author of The Secret Lives of Introverts, is available for interviews, media commentary, and other collaboration.

Who Is Jenn Granneman?

Drawing on her background as an educator and a journalist, Jenn started Introvert, Dear in 2013 as her personal blog. She was living with an extroverted roommate, dating an extroverted guy, and working an extroverted job (teaching 4th grade). She wanted to write about what it was like being an introvert living in an extrovert’s world.

In true introvert form, she wrote her blog anonymously for almost two years. She had no desire to be in the spotlight. And she had no idea her blog would become this!

Now, with the help of “quiet ones” around the world, she’s on a mission: to let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are.

Jenn grew up in Minnesota and currently lives in the Twin Cities with her partner Andre and two cats.
