Welcome to The Invisible Vision Project’s blog and welcome back to another episode of Guest Blogger Interviews #10. If you are a frequent follower and reader of this blog, you will probably remember that it was last year around this time (last August) that the blog started a brand new series called “Guest Blogger Interviews.” Now, it’s been over a year since the start of this series, and it’s been a great success. So far, 10 bloggers have been interviewed and both as readers and as writer (myself), have learned a lot from these bloggers from all walks of life. For today’s interview, it’s with Han and her blog-Safe Haven; Chronicles of a Creative Mess. Without further ado, let’s get right into the interview:
- Please briefly introduce yourself.
I’m Han, a 22 year old blogger from Liverpool, England.
- What are your hobbies and Interests?
Aside from blogging, I love to watch Netflix, listen to music and spend time with the people I love. I’m a pretty simple girl.
- Name your strength?
I’d say my biggest strength is my infinite capacity to love and care for people. And also probably how independent I am, I love that about myself.
- What is the highest level of education you have completed so far?
I completed my first year of sixth form and then I left. Uni wasn’t something I wanted to waste my years on.
- Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
5 years? Hm. Ideally to be my own boss, doing what I love. I’d like to be living with my boyfriend (although in 5 years it better be fiancé haha). Most importantly though, I want to just be happy and content.
- What is your biggest fear in life?
I have always had a fear of abandonment, it’s definitely my biggest fear. Not being good enough for the people I love, and them leaving me.
- Please tell us about your blog: What is the title of your blog? When did you first get into blogging and why did you start?
My blog is called “Safe Haven; Chronicles of a Creative Mess”. Although I only recently launched that blog, I have actually been a blogger for 7 years now. I was 15 when I first started and I just wanted to be creative and have something that was just mine. Then I fell completely in love with it, and it became very therapeutic for me.
- How would you describe your blogging style?
Raw. Honest. Uncensored.
I write what I know and what I want. I don’t tend to think too much about what others will think of it.
- Who has impacted you the most in blogging?
There’s no one person. The whole community has a huge impact on me every day. As do the people in my life who have supported my blog journey.
- How active are you on your blog and approximately, how much time do you spend blogging?
That changes week to week. On average I’ll spend 9-11 hours a day on it for at least 4 days a week.
- Have you ever faced a challenging moment in your blogging journey so far?
Oh yes of course. Blogging is a learning experience, there’s an equal measure of challenges and opportunities every day.
- In the future, where do you hope your blog will take you?
I want to be doing it for a living for a very long time to come. I’d definitely love to have more opportunities and have a steady income for it, as long as I get to continue being me.
- What would be one piece of advice you would give to first time bloggers?
Don’t get disheartened by the stats, or compare yourself to other bloggers. Because at the end of the day, there’s always going to be someone who is better than us- don’t let it effect how you see yourself and don’t let it take anything away from your own accomplishments.
