Delve Into Me: A Close Look At the Bloggers You Love (009)

This lovely interview stars O Williams from the wonderful blog, Life As A Young Lady! Keep reading to learn more about her. :)

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

I'm Olivia a.k.a O Williams, one of those horrible people who's overly obsessed with Netflix, music, and sleep--a combination which usually doesn't work right. My blog consists of lengthy life rants, confusing fangirl posts, and me forcing my music taste on you.

When did you start your blogging journey and why?

I started blogging August 2013 for a school assignment--I originally had a blog on Wordpress which was terrible, but decided to switch to Blogger as more bloggers my age were there and I felt more freedom using that program rather than Wordpress. So here I am! *crickets*

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

Being consistent. I'm not a particularly busy person; I just procrastinate a lot and end up spacing my posts out for days, even weeks. It's frustrating for me and my followers.

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 mostly just write a post when an idea pops in my head, and I wait a day or two to tweak it before posting.

What's your number one blogging tip?

Okay so probably every other blogger in the history of blogging says this, but I'm gonna dig up that dead horse and beat it some more: BE. YOUR. SELF. Guys it looks soooo bad when you fake your personality and interests, and yes, people can read "fake" through blog posts. Please please please be yourself; if everyone doesn't like you, that's okay, not everyone is supposed to like you. As long as you've got loyal followers who like you and your blog, that's all that matters.

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

My hobbies include napping, binge-watching Netflix, eating, peeping other blogs, somehow spending hours on Pinterest, watching LoveFromLiyax and CinemaSins, and, very occasionally, writing. I think I'm most passionate about sleeping--it's the one thing I think most about even when I'm doing my other "hobbies".

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

I think I do. I definitely don't know everything about myself--no one does, especially a mere 14-year-old. But I think I'm learning myself, and God teaches me more every day--sometimes good, sometimes bad.

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…
