I want to thank Stacy for stopping by lifesfinewhine for this interview- I had a wonderful time interviewing her and I hope you guys take a minute to check out her blog which is linked below.
- Thanks so much for being a part of this interview. Please tell us a little about yourself and what your blog is about.
Thank you so much for having me! I’m Stacey, I’m 29 years old and I live in a place called Wiltshire in England, UK. My blog is called 29 and Feeling Fine and I use the tagline Life, Lessons and Literature as every post tends to fall into one of those three categories. Life posts are where I write about what’s going on with me currently, Lesson posts are reflective and I write about things that have happened in the past (normally things I would do differently now!) and Literature posts are about books I’ve read because I’m a huge book lover.
- When and why did you start blogging?
I started this blog on my 29th birthday on May 4th 2020 but it’s actually something I’ve wanted to do for years. We were in the first lockdown in the UK and I was feeling really reflective about life and things I wanted to do so I researched blog platforms that night, came up with the name and pressed publish. I started my Instagram (@staceyblogs) at the same time and it doubles as a bookstagram/blogging page. It was quite impulsive but I’m so glad I did it, it’s been so therapeutic for me to spend time outside of work doing something I enjoy and I hope I continue for a long time.
- What has been your favourite post to write so far?
My 30 before 30 was fun, although this year has blown a lot of those goals out of the water. I’m thinking of doing a 30 AT 30 to replace it haha! Aside from that, the posts that are most rewarding for me are ones I haven’t planned. I’ve just had an urge to get my feelings out – often at 2am when I can’t sleep. I’m quite an open book but these posts are typically the ones I get the best engagement from.
- When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
I have been interested in writing in different ways since I was a kid. I have always adored reading and if I could ever get my mind to concentrate for long enough I’d love to write a book. When I was a teenager my dream job was to be a Magazine Editor which later turned into a Journalist (although neither materialised sadly!) and in regards to blogging, I must have signed up to 5 different blogging platforms over the last decade but this was the only one I actually pressed publish on!
- I noticed you are a fellow rom-com fan and I had to ask- what are some of your favourite rom-coms?
Wow that’s tricky I have so many. I think Notting Hill is an all-time favourite of mine, I could watch it over and over. I actually went to visit some of the filming spots in Notting Hill in London a couple of years ago which was very cool. I have a picture of the bookshop on my bookshelf.
- Who are some of your favourite writers?
Jodi Picoult, Giovanna Fletcher, Catherine Isaacs, Lisa Jewell and Gail Honeyman are just a few who have all written wonderful books.
- What are some of your 2021 goals for your blog?
To be more consistent and just keep it up! Nothing makes me smile more than seeing comments under my posts or messages via my Instagram so reaching more people is definitely a big goal of mine this year.
- What is your least favourite thing about blogging?
That I turn 30 in 4 months and have a blog called 29 and Feeling Fine! New name suggestions are welcome – maybe I’ll be like Adele and change the name on an age-at-time-of-writing basis.
- What is your favourite food
Anything with cheese.
- What would be your dream vacation?
New York is number one on my dream list. It was always my plan to be in NYC on my 30th Birthday but sadly this won’t be possible this year. One day though!
- How has 2021 been treating you so far?
Lockdown 3.0 aside, it’s been okay. I got a new job which is great, especially in the times we’re in but I miss my family and friends hugely. Fingers crossed at some point this year we see some return to normality.
- Thanks again and please feel free to add anything you would like to share with the readers.
