Delve Into Me: A Close Look At The Bloggers You Love (005)

I had the wonderful chance to interview Sofia from Stars Unseen! Read this interview to learn more about this very creative blogger. :)


+ + +

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

i'm sofia, and i'm a sister, friend, aunt, and idealist. i love to write, play my cello, think deeply, and have adventures. on my blog i share things close to my heart, as well as some of my poetry. :)

When did you start your blogging journey and why?

i suppose i first started writing on a blog as an assignment for a class at school. i really enjoyed the topics we covered there, and i've started a few different blogs. since then i've reinvented my blogging style to more what i truly enjoy and care about.

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

honestly, the most challenging part is probably not worrying so much about my number of readers. i feel like when i worry about that too much, the writing quality goes way down. first and foremost, i want to write passionately and from my own heart.

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

not really i guess. i don't follow a schedule at all because i want to blog on inspiration, not because i have to. haha, i'm always on pinterest, so that's sort of a given...otherwise, i guess i flip through my journal for any ideas on topics, i ask my friends, and i sit down and write.

What's your number one blogging tip?

please, please don't let readers become more important than writing. your writing is the life and soul of your blog, and it shouldn't become a side effect of blogging.

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

i love write for my own personal means, i love to play cello, i love to have discussions, i love photography, and i love to learn. my passions seem to change often, but right now i would say i'm most passionate about writing.

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

perhaps a little more every day, but i don't know if i ever will fully know myself.

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.
