PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF, AND TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BLOG.

Bonjour mes amis! We'll start with the basics. My name is Aliah, and I'm a teenage homeschooler. Like a lot of bloggers that I know, I'm a complete bookworm who loves to bury her nose in a book where she can travel off to another land. For me, writing is like reading. It gives me the opportunity to leave this world and go into a fantasy one. The only difference is that I control what happens there, because I've written the story.

My blog is a place where I can share events from my daily life, my passions, my writings, and get to know people that I have things in common with.


WHEN DID YOU START YOUR BLOGGING JOURNEY AND WHY?

I started my first blog back in 2013. I'm not exactly sure when or how I found out about blogs, but after awhile, I became interested in starting my own. Thus began my long journey through the blogging world and finding out what I truly enjoy writing about. My first blog was called Soaring With Books, and I posted book reviews on there. Outside of my family, no one ever viewed the blog, so I decided to start a new one. I posted a lot of different types of things on Kidz In The Cupboard. This blog, too, didn't get many views. And so I started my third, final, and current blog. The original name of Cranberries and Crescents was Dream. Dress. Play. and it was an American Girl doll blog. I soon found that I didn't really enjoy blogging about American Girl dolls, and I geared my blog more towards writing, DIY's and photography. I think Cranberries and Crescents was sort of my last chance in having a blog I was proud of.

WHAT'S THE MOST CHALLENGING ASPECT OF BLOGGING FOR YOU?

I would probably say posting and coming up with ideas, which is, essentially, the core of blogging. My friends and family who aren't really familiar with blogging simply assume it's easy to come up with new ideas every week and turn them in to photos and posts. But let's face it; it's difficult keeping up with everything, and sometimes, you get blogger's block.

DO YOU HAVE ANY BLOGGING RITUALS (LIKE FOLLOWING A STRICT SCHEDULE OR MAKING SURE TO PROCRASTINATE BY GOING ON PINTEREST FIRST, ETC.)?

Until recently, I would only post when I felt like it and when I had and idea (trust me, those two things didn't happen together very often). Now I've become a bit stricter with myself; jotting down some ideas for posts, sitting down a doing several blog posts at once, and having several pre-written posts so I'm always prepared.

WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER ONE BLOGGING TIP?

Blog about what you love. Don't post about things that you don't enjoy. Remember you're blogging because you want to.

BESIDES BLOGGING, WHAT OTHER HOBBIES TO YOU ENJOY PARTICIPATING IN? WHICH ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?

Like I mentioned before, I love both reading and writing, but thanks to my blog, my interests have expanded to photography, poetry, and DIY's.

(DUE TO THE TITLE OF MY BLOG, I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD ASK:) DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU KNOW YOURSELF?

I honestly think I know myself pretty well. Sometimes I surprise myself when saying or doing something that's a bit out of my comfort zone, but other than that, I do feel connected with myself.
