Monthly Blogger Interview: Hannah Payne from Practically Imperfect

    And so I begin back on track with my Monthly Blogger Interview Series! I have received so many emails about how people enjoy these interviews that I had to transfer the series to my new blog! With my November version of this series, I am interviewing Hannah P. from Practically Imperfect! Me and Hannah bonded instantly when we both started blogging a couple of years ago. Since then we have always been in contact and have worked on many blogging projects together!

1.) Why/When did you start your blog? It’s crazy to think that it was over two years ago when I first became interested in blogging. I really loved the idea of having a creative space online to share my passions. I had previously tried to start a travel blog, but I  couldn’t think of a name I loved, had trouble with site design, and realized that I didn’t want to be confined to just blogging about travel. I set the project aside and came back to it months later. When I started Practically Imperfect, I knew it just clicked. I feel like Practically Imperfect really embodies what life means to me, and I have loved sharing those passions and dreams with my readers ever since!  

2.) What is your biggest inspiration when blogging? 

My blogs name, Practically Imperfect, serves as a big inspiration when I am blogging. I think that it’s the imperfections that make life great and I try to use that mindset as a starting point for all of my posts. 

3.) Where do you get your inspiration when thinking of different posts? 
I get inspiration and ideas for blog posts through different experiences in life! Since there are so many blogs out there, I used to feel intimidated and think it was impossible to create original content. I learned that if you are staying completely authentic, your unique voice will shine through. 

4.) Where do you think you would see yourself in 5 years? 
Hopefully living and working in my favorite city on earth, San Francisco! 

5.) How do you balance school & blogging?  
Balancing school and blogging is definitely something that I’m still learning how to do. I am just now getting into the routine of my freshman year at UCLA and back to a (hopefully) consistent blogging schedule. I really try to keep all of my posts as intentional and effective as possible. What helps me the most is when I lay out all of my future posts and organize them into a monthly calendar. 

6.) What are some of your favorite things to do outside of blogging and school? 
Going on adventures is my absolute favorite thing to do, whether that means traveling all the way to a new country or discovering a local coffee shop! Moving to LA has definitely fed that adventurous side of me since there is so much to do here! 

7.) What is something you think that none of your readers know about you?
If I could, I would live out of a suitcase and travel 365 days a year!
