Hi everybody!

It’s been a very long time since I’ve written an article, I’m aware. I was slightly inactive back in May because I had to take my exams, and I found out a couple days ago that I graduated! YAAAAAAY!

Anyways, five million years ago (please note the sarcasm) the amazing Caylie (@dystopiaglory) tagged me to do the WHI tag that was created by @ellacmich, check them out below:

Let’s begin!

1) How much time do you spend on WHI a day?

It really depends. for example I’ve been spending at least 2 hours per day on WHI in the last few weeks, but it was quite different when I was busy with school. During stressful times I’d block WHI on my laptop for large portions of time so I’d be able to focus more. Something to note here is that I don’t spend full hours on the site, I usually reheart a few images or post something, go do something else, and then return after an hour or two. Then again, I do a lot “behind the scenes” for my WHI, such as searching for images, making “flows”, filtering, making quotes etc.

2) Do you see things in real life and mentally heart them?
No I don’t, that’s kinda weird haha.

3) Do you go on a hearting spree when you find a collection you like?
Yes and no. When I find a lovely collection, I go through it and save images I like to re-heart later (I save them as the number after entry/, yeah I know this is kinda hard to explain lol). I like my canvas to be diverse in terms of different types of pictures such as food, quotes, fashion and travel pictures, so hearting 42 pictures of only one topic isn’t really my cup of tea.

4) What's your favorite thing to heart?
I absolutely love hearting pictures of adventure and travelling, and colorful images in general.

5) Are you a collection hoarder or a picky collection owner?
I think I’m in the middle, I currently have 28 collections and I’m not planning on adding new collections.

6) Do you have a collection that you never add any photos to but it's still there?
Yes… my Fantastic Places And Where To Find Them collection, the collection for my travel article series that is kinda dead. I’ve only made three articles for that series, the last one was in January. I genuinely love writing those articles but it would take up to 12 hours per article and it was quite draining to research for and write them, that’s why I put those on hold. Luckily I will have a lot of free time in the next weeks as I finished my final exams, so maybe I’ll end up doing more parts :)

7) What is the thing you love the most about WHI?
The community, by far. Yes, creating your personal art gallery is amazing of course, but the community is really tight and supportive of one another! There is truly no other site like WeHeartIt when it comes to that, that’s why I’m so proud to be part of the amazing community :)

8) Has WHI changed/impacted your life?
Yes. I can’t really name everything it has changed because that list could go on into eternity, but I’ll name a few things. Talking to amazing users and Fabio gave me more self-confidence in real life, my English has heavily improved (both vocal and on paper), I became more empowered from all the amazing quotes I came across. I also found so many interesting people I am glad and proud to call my friends, in particular the amazing people in #WHITheRevolution that I talk to every single day (no joke, the chat never shuts up lol). I also gained experiences with dealing with awful fuckfaces that tried to tear me down and I learned a whole lot of important life lessons that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

That was it, I hope you enjoyed this!
I am so sorry that I only did this now, I started with writing this about 1 month ago and I put it on hold because of the writer’s block I had for a few of these questions… that’s why I am not tagging anyone because I’m pretty sure everyone has done it at this point. Nonetheless, if you haven’t done the tag, I encourage you to do it because it is a lot of fun to make :)

Now onto two announcements:

I have an article about WHI tips & tricks coming out soon, I have been working on it since April and I’m really excited about it! No, it obviously didn’t take me 2.5 full months to do, I started with writing ideas down back in April and put the article on hold because of my exams. After finishing my exams I couldn’t really find the motivation to do work, so it’s been a slow progress… but it should be coming out next week!

Another exciting thing: #WTR is finally doing another competition, and it will be a collab with thesmileproject! It will be a shoutout competition, but it's a little different than #TheAspiringWHI…. that’s all I can say. The announcement article will come out soon, we don’t know the exact date yet as we still need to figure that out lol. Nonetheless, stay tuned!

And now a few things I want to share with you that I think people will find interesting, funny or cute or whatever (all of these being from Tumblr):
