So I’ve ended up getting in my time machine and winding back 5 years because today… I’m doing a TAG post. Say what? Honestly, I cannot remember the last time I did any sort of tag post but I used to do a lot of them within the first few years of blogging. They were always so much fun and carefree. Something I don’t think I’ve felt with my content in quite a long time.
So although I’m not planning on making tag posts a regular feature on my blog again, I wanted to do one because why the heck not. Blogging is supposed to be fun. I know a lot of bloggers have done this Vogue 73 Questions tag post but I stole this from Lisa’s Notebook (one of my favesss).
I’ve gained a LOT of followers (shameless self plug: if you want to grow your blog following check out my Beginners Guide To Growing Your Following eBook here!) since I last did a tag post so if you fancy getting to know me a little more, here’s your chance!
I was also really struggling to think of content ideas for this month so this was a bit of a cop out but don’t tell anyone. Let’s go!
1. What is your usual Starbucks order?
This is a really bad start butttt I don’t really drink Starbucks haha! But the last time I did, I had a Cappuccino.
2. What does your workstation look like right now?
RIGHT NOW I’m working from my bed. So it looks a mess. But in my office, my work station is pretty tidy. Just a lamp and a glass of water.
3. All time favourite food?
Chocolate Mini Rolls.
4. Favourite author?
Karen Thompson-Walker and Markus Zusak. Check out this post on 10 Books I’ve Read More Than Once for more about their books.
5. What do you think of open relationships?
Not for me, personally. But I have nothing against them for two consenting adults who feel it’s right for their relationship.
6. Favourite video game?
Red Dead Redemption 2 and The Last Of Us 2.
7. Guilty pleasure treat?
Long afternoon naps when I should be working.
8. Favourite film?
9. Favourite book?
The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson-Walker.
10. Twitter or Instagram?
Depends what for. I’m loving Instagram at the moment (find me at jennyinneverland).
11. Desktop or laptop?
Laptop. But I miss old school desktops the size of a fridge.
12. Best advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t use 3 words when one will do.
13. What project are you working on right now?
I don’t currently have a project I’m working on, sadly. I’d like to start something soon, though.
14. Favourite colour?
15. Did you get good grades at school?
At GCSE, yes. But sixth form, no because I prioritized getting drunk than studying.
16. Dream job?
I honestly don’t know. I’m sorry that’s a bit of a cop out answer but I don’t. I’ve had SO MANY ideas of what I would want to do for a job which would be really rewarding. A librarian, a therapist, at one point I wanted to join the police force. But I honestly don’t know what my “dream” job is.
I love what I do now of course, I’m so grateful for my career and the opportunities I’ve had from it and I wouldn’t want it to end any time soon. But I never envisioned this for myself and if something came up that I was more aligned to, I’d probably go for it.
Maybe I just don’t have a dream job and maybe that’s okay.
17. Played any sports?
Yes, I took extra P.E for my GCSE in school and I was also in the tennis team.
18. Do you have a degree?
20. What is your favourite kind of blog post to do?

22. Describe yourself in 3 words?
Kind, organized and passionate.
23. If you were a rapper what would your rapper name be?

25. What’s on the top of your wish list right now?
A freaking holiday.
26. Hogwarts House?
27. How many tattoos do you have?
One but I’d love to get more when I know exactly what I want (and pluck up the courage to book it!)
28. What are you most grateful for this year?
Ugh, so many things. Can’t imagine I’m the only one to have been given a new overwhelming sense of gratitude from the pandemic. I’m grateful for connection. To people, places, nature, myself and the Universe.

Absolutely brilliant post. Really love getting to know you posts. Your totally right too. Blogging should always have a fun side wether your taking it serious or not. Something I’m looking at at the moment too.
Oh and goats are the best 😍
Thank you! Totally agree x
I haven’t seen many do tag posts anymore so this was such a nice walk down memory lane! 😊
Thank you 🙂
Great fun post! Loved learning more about you. We have books in common, which we knew about, autumn is also my fav season but I’d chose pie over cake. LOL
Thank you! I’m not opposed to a pie for sure though!
loved getting to know you better jenny!! i think this tag is always so fun to read! so glad you decided to do it.

I love tags! It’s a nice easy way to share things about yourself. I’m Hufflepuff and kittens all the way! (Defo going to do this as well!)
Go for it! Would love to read your answers 🙂
This is pretty fun! (I really want to do one!) I’m actually a Ravenclaw and a cat person!
Oooh very different to me! I’d love to read your answers x
Oh ya, we got things in common! I am a Slytherin too and Jo Marsh is my kind of gal! Love some of the humor in here; 73 questions is a lot of questions, but I think I would I love to have this kind of conversation with someone over the table during a first or second date.
I am signing up for your college class. 🙂
Thanks for sharing a little bit more about yourself!
Oh yes I would too. I think I’d like to ask my boyfriend these questions x
I hear you about the dream job, I’m always changing my mind and get shorts spirts of inspiration. Like I went to the chiropractor the other day and now I want to be one ahahah what. I’m going to the zoo tomorrow so I’ll probably end up wanting to be a zoo keeper next,
Oh my gosh I totally hear you. I’ve always thought zoo keeper sounded like a wonderful job if you had the right qualifications x
Love this! This was so great for getting to know you more and I definitely agree that books are the best things ever, haha! Thanks for sharing x
Thank you! Yasss to books!
Loved reading this! These posts are always a great way to know the person more! Chocolate and a great book are my way to decompress too! xx
Absolutely! I need that after the weekend I’ve had!
The nosey bit of me LOVES reading random trivia like this. I’m a basic autumn loving bitch too. Bring back not melting! Haha.
Oh same, I’m so nosey haha!
I love these kinds of posts! They’re fun and simple, but I always get a kick out of them (I did this one a few months back too)
As for your answers – 1) Ice cream is my favorite too 😋 2) I also work in bed (and my workstation is also a mess because of that, lol) 3) Number 33 took me a second (we don’t call vacations “holidays” in the states so I wasn’t sure what that meant at first 😂)
Yeah I agree, I love these type of posts!
I remember when tags were all the rage! It was interesting reading through your answers, Jenny! I definitely agree with the advice about using one word rather than three. Reading back some of my old writing I just think “cut it by a third…PLEASE” xx
Thank you! My mum gave me that advice 🙂 x
what a nice post. What do you like about goats that much?
I just think they’re so cute and I love how they jump about and how unpredictable they are haha!
Love this! What a great way to get to know you! 🙂
Thank you 🙂 x
Fun post! I love doing this vogue questions. I’m looking for travel vogue questions. Hehehe.
I don’t think I’ve travelled enough to do that one!
Number 15 is a whole mood. I smoked and got high instead of studying in my 6th form! But look at me now, world! 28 with debilitating anxiety. Stressy, messy and depressy but living for it! No, really, I loved this post. Such a good idea and something fun!
Hahaha same girl. Look at us now xD
Oh I loved reading this post Jenny! I’m tempted to do one of my own on my blog! x

You should would love to read your answers! x
As soon as I saw the title of this I couldn’t wait to read your answers – and thank you so much for the shout out too, I loved compiling my 73 questions 🙂 You’re right about these posts being fun, something I think us bloggers could all do with more of. And “Maybe I just don’t have a dream job and maybe that’s okay” resonated with me so much – spot on, Jenny, spot on! xxx
Thank you Lisa! And you’re welcome. I loved reading your answers as I was doing mine xxx
Lovely post – Stevie Nicks is queen 👑
She sure is!
I love a good old get to know me blog post. Even though I’ve followed your blog for years, it’s lovely to learn even more about you!
Haha thank you x
Loved this post – Ooh your hogwarts house is slytherin, I’m a Ravenclaw!
Thank you! x
Good grief, that’s a lot of questions! Not sure if I would have the patience to answer 73, and would be very surprised if anyone is interested in my answers! Might be fun to choose 10 at random and give it a go though.
Haha they were quick fire so it didn’t take too long!
I’m an autumn girl too and somewhat addicted to mini rolls haha. Reading your post has sort of made me want to do my own one 😅
