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.)

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.
