DELVE INTO ME: A CLOSE LOOK AT THE BLOGGERS YOU LOVE (011)


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

I'm Bryleigh. I'm 15, the oldest of six, and a redhead. My blog is A Little Yarn Blossom, and at A Little Yarn Blossom you will find me blasting society, fangirling over bands, soaking in life and hanging with my Blossoms!

WHEN DID YOU START YOUR BLOGGING JOURNEY AND WHY?

I started my blogging journey in November of 2013, three weeks after my 14th birthday. I met my friend Emily on the knit and crochet community Ravelry. Soon after becoming friends with her, I found her blog. I knew instantly that blogging is something that I needed to delve into.

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

Oh gosh! I think for me it would be wording each post. It usually takes me two - three days to write, edit and revise a big post.

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've tried to have a strict schedule, but I couldn't force myself to follow it. ;) I usually write when inspiration strikes.

WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER ONE BLOGGING TIP?

Post what YOU want to post. I've seen many bloggers get burnt out of blogging because they're only posting what the followers want, not what they want.

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

This'll be a long list! Reading, writing, drawing, playing my guitar, learning about herbs and essential oils, graphic design, interior design, knitting, crocheting, sewing, embroidery and cross stitch, cooking, baking, photography, and obsessing over bands! ;P What I'm most passionate about is design, knit and crochet.

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

Ha! Great question. I think at 15, I know all I can know about my self at this time. Each year is another year to grow my self and learn more about me. I get really frustrated sometimes that I don't know everything about my self, even though I am the only one who could truly know my self. (I just said my self four times and I feel insane.)

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…
