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. :)

    xoxo Morning

  5. FABULOUS #1 tip. Loving you write is so important because your enthusiasm and love will most likely pour out into your writing, which your readers will pick up on:) So fun!

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)

This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...

Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

How and Why: Linkup Parties

Starting out as a blogger can be really hard. You want to grow your blog, but even though it seems like you've tried everything, nothing works. Your blog hasn't expanded in the least. You don't see any improvement.

That's why in this post I'm going to share with you the miracle of link up parties! I'm going to go over how they work, why you should create your own, which hosts you should use and much, much more.

Let's get started, shall we? :)

Share this post to help other bloggers learn about linkup parties.
How they work The typical link party can be broken down into 3 basic* parts.

* Every link up is different, so as you're reading through this and considering to create your own, consider adding a unique twist to your link up party. After all, people tend to get tired of seeing the same old same old.

The sponsors These are the people who came up with the original idea of that particular link party. It can be anyone from you on your lonesome to several …
