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.

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…
