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.

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)




This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...




Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

Starting out as a blogger can be really hard. You want to grow your blog, but even though it seems like you've tried everything, nothing works. Your blog hasn't expanded in the least. You don't see any improvement.
