400 Followers Special – Answering Your Questions

Hello everyone it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to Zainab Chats. I’m so excited for this post because, we’ve reached 400 followers! Thank you so much for all the love and support – to celebrate, I’ll be doing a Q&A as I haven’t done one for a while and I’ve had a lot of new faces around here lately. I asked via my blog comments as well as Instagram and any award questions I’ve been tagged for, so let’s jump into the questions!

If you could be anywhere in the world right now (other than where you currently are), where would you be?
I really had to think about the answer for this question, but probably Japan. The culture there seems really interesting and I do karate so it would be cool to train in the country where it comes from!

Which celebrity (living or dead) would you like to meet?
That’s also super hard because there’s so many! I’d probably say Marcus Rashford though because everything he’s done for child food poverty causes is really inspiring (and not to mention he plays for my favourite football team!)

How do you come up with the questions to ask the people you interview?
A great question! All I can say is, a lot of research is required. Even if the person you’ve interviewed has got only one interesting trait, you just have to find things to say and link it to them! For example, someone I’d like to interview I’ve found out is actually vegan.
So, if I do manage to interview them, I could ask questions such as ‘What prompted your decision to go vegan?’ ‘How do you think veganism has impacted you and the environment?’ etc! Remember, even the smallest details can deliver the greatest answers!

Your favourite genre of books/movies?
My favourite genre of books are teen, modern thrillers. I really enjoy them because they’re relatable to me and relevant to things I might experience but they still have that mystery element!

In terms of movies, I love all things Rom-Coms. They’re so fun to watch and honestly, although the majority of them have very similar plots (mainly love triangles) , it’s cool to see what each movie does differently!

Why did you choose this niche, and what are your tips for establishing a solid reader base?
So, I chose the niche: positivity, because I know especially for teenagers, it’s really hard to maintain a positive mindset therefore I want to try and help as much as possible!

For establishing a solid reader base, I would say consistency is the key! I know everyone says that, but with consistency, your readers will be able to come back to your posts. Also, if you want more tips, check out my Top 5 Blog Growth Tips post

What’s your go-to breakfast?
That’s actually quite an easy question! I always have either Coco Pops or Rice Pops for breakfast. To be honest, I’ve had them for breakfast for so many years, maybe I should vary my choices, haha!

How/when did you realise your love for journalism?
A great question! So, I’ve always wanted to be a TV Presenter of my own show (anybody who knows me, knows that’s still my end goal!) but I realised it’s not that simple and did some research and learned journalism is the best way to get into that sort of career. After doing more research, I actually realized how much I enjoyed journalism, and it wasn’t just something I needed to do for my dream anymore and I found it super interesting. That’s why I’ve tried to implement more posts to do with journalism into the blog (e.g my interviews!)

Who has been your favourite person to interview or collab with?
My favourite person to interview has probably been Alexandra Chaves. She was one of the first people I interviewed, and she was so lovely and kind to talk to – we actually still talk sometimes on Instagram! I actually do have another favourite person I’ve interviewed but their interview hasn’t gone live yet and it’s a super exciting one (so stay tuned for that!)
