How is your blogging journey going so far?

I have been blogging for many years. My most successful blog apart from this one was a book blog created for a book club that I ran (IBC… Insomnia Book Club). Due to some unfortunate events in life I no longer had time for it. Fast forward a few years later, acquired server space and Just Jenna was born. It was really difficult starting over from scratch because there wasn’t a following for Just Jenna. Through a lot of hard work that has changed. The blog definitely needs to be revamped with a new theme, etc. but it is in a better place now.

What is your favorite social media platform?

Recently asked this question on Twitter, hah! Without a doubt it’s Instagram. Ironically, I hated Instagram at one point but after joining and using it for a while it became my favorite. Instagram and Twitter are your best friends when it comes to digital marketing… but that’s another post for another day. Facebook isn’t bad but it’s not for me. TikTok is fun but I’ve been sticking to reels on Instagram. Who knows what the future holds!

What’s been 1 highlight of your summer so far?

This is going to make me sound like a little old lady with a cat/dog and a friendly ghost that lurks around in her house but… growing tomatoes! I’ve been growing tomatoes since I was a kid. However, within the past few years the fiery heat and humidity that prefers to choke you has killed every tomato I’ve tried growing… including a heat tolerant one! This year I grew a Little Sicily tomato plant in a pot. So far, it has produced about a dozen tomatoes.

What’s something you still want to do this summer?

If Covid-19 didn’t exist anymore then I would want to go back to the movie theater. It wouldn’t matter what movie it is! It could be a horrible movie with a bucket of clogged arteries popcorn and a sugar shocked coke… and it would be heaven. Missed out going to the beach because of Covid-19 but maybe one day!

Do you prefer rainy days or sunny days?

Rainy days and sunny days have pros and cons. Rainy days are my favorite but it floods really bad in this state… also, the tornadoes… sheesh. I love rain, especially the sound of it when the droplets splash onto a roof and tree leaves. A cool breeze mixed in the rain with something warm to drink and a book in your hand is one of the best days.

What’s your favorite food?

That is an incredibly difficult question for a foodie, haha! Burgers and french fries usually win, though donuts are held very close to my heart. The best burgers that I’ve ever had would have been the burgers my Dad made and also a burger in California. I think it was called a tsunami burger, complete with a grill stamp on top of their bun. Yum!

What’s your favorite show you’ve been watching lately?

When looking for something different to watch I came across a Korean show on Netflix called Use My Talent. It revolves around a guy with mysophobia and a girl who lost her Mother. It has plenty of comedy and serious moments. There are quite a few side characters with their own stories as well. I would love it if they had another season or a spinoff in the future!
