I had the wonderful chance to interview Amna from Crafty! Continue to read to learn more about her and her wonderful blog. :)

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

Hi everybody! I am Amna Ateef. I am 14 years old and I am a high school student who is obsessed with crafting, music, tech, graphic designing and photography. I also love reading something knowledgeable and traveling. I usually mix and create music in free time when possible. Crafty is my first blog and it's all about crafting and things related to it. As crafting is one of my major hobbies, I thought why not blog about it as others do?

When did you start your blogging journey and why?

I started blogging from 27th May, 2014. I used to craft a lot when I didn't had any gadget in my hand or anything else to do. In the end of 2013, I joined Pinterest. I saw lot's of inspiring craft pins from all around the web. I saw many craft blogs. I looked at my crafts and said why not should I start mine?

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

I guess the negative reviews and slow progress of success of my blog on the web. Also blogging requires a lot of time and I am barely free. That's one of the major reasons I think why my blog looks emptier than it should be.

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

Umm no, I don't have a strict schedule or what so ever. I randomly get ideas or I get inspired by one of the ideas I saw on the internet. Then I make it up, photograph the whole progress and post it. I have a rule which is followed by almost every blogger: whenever I post something, I quickly share it across a large number of social networking websites.

What's your number one blogging tip?

Never loose hope. Patience is required in blogging because it takes years for your blog to become successful. Try to promote your blog content yourself if no one else is promoting it.

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

I have a lot of hobbies to be honest. Here is an incomplete list of
my hobbies:

  • graphic designing
  • crafting
  • sketching
  • painting
  • drawing
  • tweaking up the software on my gadgets and devices
  • video gaming
  • photography
  • listening music
  • making and mixing music
  • writing something helpful,
  • reading (not novels, something like encyclopedias, tech news, blogs related to my hobbies, etc.)
  • traveling
  • socializing (i.e. meeting strangers and making new friends)
  • surfing the web

I am passionate about, almost, my every hobby.

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

I think I know myself. But there is something I feel I need to grasp in order complete myself and my happiness.

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.
