Over the past few months, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work with some amazing bloggers and writers. One of these bloggers is Sarah Hamilton of LockerStyler.
Along with writing on LockerStyler, Sarah is also an incredible author, photographer, filmmaker, and actress! She’s one of my role models in the writing industry, so I was beyond excited when she told me she wanted to do a collaboration with me! We decided to interview each other.
Keep reading to learn how Sarah started writing, who her inspirations are, etc. 🙂
A.M.: What is your site about?
S.H.: LockerStyler.com is a teen lifestyle site which focuses on DIY’s, celebrity interviews, advice, recipes, school, and all things that teens and young adults can relate to.
A.M.: When did you start blogging?
S.H.: I started Locker Styler four years ago as an incoming freshman into high school. Ever since I was really young, I had always wanted to have my own website and it has become a great creative outlet that I love working on every week.
A.M.: What inspired you to start blogging?
S.H.: When I was really young, I became fascinated with websites on the Internet and wanted to have one of my own. Starting in middle school, I had obsessively loved decorating my locker to the max and decided to start a site dedicated to locker decor. As time moved on, the main theme may have shifted into teen lifestyle altogether, but I am so glad that I still got that start to make it what it is.
A.M.: What has been your favorite post so far?
S.H.: How can I just choose one!?!? Well, my favorite themed posts would have to be interviews with really cool professional actors, authors, etc and travel journal posts from trips. Both are really fun to put together and I look forward to making them both happen.
A.M.: Who inspires you?
S.H.: I am so inspired by so many people! From family, to friends and so many others, I find that I get inspired very often from many different people.
A.M.: In several years, what do you see yourself doing?
S.H.: In several years, I hope to still be blogging, writing books, and making films. (Hopefully, even starring in some as well!) But overall, I just hope that whatever I am up to, I will be happy and successful while still being surrounded by the wonderful people in my life.
A.M.: What kind of posts do you love the most?
S.H.: As stated before, I really love interviews. Being able to connect to others through the Internet is so wild and I love it so much. Everybody who I interview, I love what they do so it’s amazing to connect with others for a common purpose.
A.M.: What blogs do you follow?
S.H.: I have a tendancy to follow a lot of blogs but my go-to right now is Ashley Tisdale’s http://TheHauteMess.com …it literally has everything!
A.M.: What would you say to inspiring bloggers?
S.H.: I would say, keep writing, photographing, and making those dreams (and posts) happen! Blogging is really fun and it puts a whole new perspective on life but it’s a really great way to create something and share it with others. Make the most out of it! 🙂
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, Sarah! It was really fun interviewing you!
