Delve Into Me: A Close Look At The Bloggers You Love (001)

The lovely Devanshi gave me the wonderful opportunity of interviewing her. Learn about her below. :)



+ + +

Please introduce yourself, and tell us a little bit more about you and your blog.

Hey there! I'm (De)Vanshi, nice to meet y'all. :) I blog over at Upwardss. Besides drafting posts for my blog, you'll most likely find me in my room blasting music and choreographing some new dance, or outside playing golf or basketball. Upwardss, my blog, is a way for me to express my thoughts and writing to a bigger audience, and I love it!

When did you start your blogging journey and why?

I started my blog after a very rocky and disappointing road with tumblr (need I say more?), and after my best friend, Arushee, from Unadorned Gifts, started a blog herself.

What's the most challenging aspect of blogging for you?

Recently, it's been writing content that's worth reading. I've found myself drafting, deleting, and redrafting numerous times-- only because I feel like no one will like my writing or ideas.

Do you have any blogging rituals (like following a strict schedule or making sure to procrastinate by going on Pinterest first, etc.)?

Nope! I feel like strict schedules force you to write, and when I'm forced to write, nothing turns out good. The only 'ritual' type thing I have is my nightstand journal (I'm a night writer). Sometimes, when ideas take a trip over to me at night, I'll jot them down in my journal.

What's your number one blogging tip?

Love what you post, every single time. Because chances are, if you don't love it, somebody else probably isn't gonna love it. It's as simple as that. :)

Besides blogging, what other hobbies to you enjoy participating in? Which are you most passionate about?

Dance. Dance. Oh, wait, did I mention dance? :P Other than dancing, I love to watch a Disney or Bollywood movie of some sort. I'll play basketball and golf and throw around a football occasionally (that is, if my sister is a willing participant).

(Due to the title of my blog, I feel like I should ask:) Do you feel like you know yourself?

I feel like I know myself well enough to know if I'd like Rocky Road or Cookies and Cream when I go to an ice cream shop (Cookies and Cream, if you were wondering). But, now that I think of it, I'm always learning new things about myself, discovering new qualities, some good and some bad, even if I don't always think about it. :)

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
