Hey everyone! Today is another installation of Spotting the Light! We are interviewing Abi Leah today!
Abi Leah is an INFP with a love for anything floral and pink. She is also a Christian girl who loves books and music.
What do you blog about?
I blog about lifestyle but with a bit of everything!
What made you decide to start blogging?
I’ve always loved writing. When a couple of my friends starting blogging, I thought it was the perfect time to start my blog. While they have stopped blogging or moved on to bigger things, I kept my blog.
Where do you get ideas for what you do?
Most of what I post about comes from the ideas inside my head. I try to think about something interesting going on in my life and how I can blog about it. I keep things hopeful and encouraging, as I work to share God’s love in what I do.
If you could talk to yourself when you were first starting out, what advice would you give yourself?
Don’t get discouraged if your blog isn’t getting as many views as you’d like it to. Sometimes things come in phases and it takes time to find out what your main purpose is and how to make your blog unique. I’d also say to blog about things that you want to blog about, not trying to copy anyone else’s blog just because they are doing better.
What is the favorite piece of content that you’ve put out?
My favorite post so far was my March Memories post that I wrote last year. I felt that it really showed who I am. Plus, March was just a great month with travels and photography.
Describe your process, from idea to post
My ideas for posts normally come either at night before I fall asleep or when I’m trying to write a different post that just isn’t working out. Posts normally take my three days to write. Day 1 consists of simple sentences outlining what I want to talk about. In Day 2, I write out paragraphs and arrange pictures if there are any. Day 3 is edit and preview day where I look through the post, at least three different times, to make sure that I like it and everything looks good. When everything’s done, I hit publish!
What does a typical day in your life look like?
School takes up a lot of my time so I’ll talk about that schedule. I normally get up around 6:00 and get ready for school. I have classes from 8 to 3:30 and then I get home. Every afternoon I have tea with my mom and sisters and we talk about our days. If I can, I try to work out for an hour and then start studying. I always have dinner with my family around the table (my favorite part of the day). After that, I have another cup of tea, check my blog, finish up some more homework, and I’m off to bed around 10:00. It’s a long day.
What is your favorite book?
Return To Me by Lynn Austin
