Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to Maya’s Life and Travels. Today I had the lovely chance to interview Hreem from Chic Life Thru My Lens. Hreem is an amazing blogger so make sure to check out her blog by clicking the link here. If you would like to be interviewed for the blogger interview series please reach out to me via my blog’s contact page. Alright, let’s get started with this interview!
1. Hi Hreem, thank you so much for agreeing to be part of the blogger interview series. For anybody that doesn’t know you, why don’t you explain a bit about you and your blog?
Hey Maya! Thanks for having me on the series 🙂 So I’m Hreem (with a silent H lol), I’m 15 years old and I’ve been blogging for 3 years. My blog is really just based on my interests and things that happen in my life, like music, photography and baking. I don’t have a main topic I just love talking about things that I think other people might relate to!
2. When you created Chic Life Thru My Lens did you have any specific goals for the blog and have you achieved those goals yet?
Honestly, when I first started my blog I feel like the community was a lot smaller than it is now and I was like 12 so my main goal was really just to have people read and comment on my blog why definitely happens now and I’m so happy about that ☺️. I also wanted to write posts that we more authentic and things that I am interested in because at first I was pretty clueless about how to be interesting and I know I would do things similar to other bloggers I followed. That’s another goal I’ve achieved because I feel like the posts I write now are things that I am genuinely passionate about.
3.What inspired you to name your blog “Chic Life Thru My Lens?”
Well, originally I was planning to make my blog centred around photography so my mom and I came up with the name to be like me showing the “chic life” through my camera “lens”. It’s really random but I’d never be able to change the name now because I’m so attached to it 😂.
4. Who or what inspired you to start blogging?
I started my blog because I had just recently read the whole ‘Girl Online’ series by Zoella and thought it would be so fun to have a blog just like that. Then I realised that Zoe actually had a blog in real life and I was just like yeah I have to make my own blog now.
5.On your blog you mention you are an introvert, have you got any tips for any introverts out there that are struggling?
My main tip for other introverts is don’t do things that would make you seem extroverted if they make you uncomfortable or you just don’t enjoy it because there’s really no point. Plus introverts are pretty awesome so just be yourself.
6. You also mentioned that you have taken up journaling what inspired you to start journaling and would you say that you have changed throughout your journals?
Yess I love journaling haha. Okay, so I started journaling also because of a book series (Dork Diaries, so iconic) and because basically every girl in any movie or book at the time would have a journal and I wanted to be like that. Now I really love writing in my journal about random things I’ve been thinking about or things that I want to remember and yeah it’s just really fun. I don’t think I’ve really changed much except for the fact that I write a lot more now than I did when I first began. Oh and that I’ve stopped making rules about how I should write and what I should put in and I can just randomly stick in some poems or pictures that I love 💞
