Today I’m chatting to newbie student blogger Grace from Ctrl Alt Esc to find out more about her blog and the inspiration behind it. She will be taking on the Meet The Blogger interview questions poised to every blogger taking part in the series to gain a glimpse into her newly founded website, I hope you will enjoy it and take time to read some of her content too.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog
My name’s Grace, I’m an 18 year old blogger from England advocating positivity and healthy escapsism – hence the name “ctrl alt esc“. I passionately write about fashion, music and beauty as well as more important issues such as mental health, equality and social controversies!
How long have you been blogging?
What or who inspired you to create your blog?
Writing has been my passion for as long as I can remember but the main inspiration for starting my blog was reading articles from professionals and those who had managed to grow a large audience from nothing. Due to my dream of becoming a fashion journalist and my adoration for writing, teachers and friends recommended I started a blog, so, without hesitation, I began planning and posting!
What’s your favourite thing about running your blog?
My favourite element of blogging is certainly the satisfaction achieved after posting an article that I’m proud of. I went through a stage in my life during which I lacked confidence and often felt useless, however, since starting my blog, I have goals to strive towards and an audience to write for. It’s so rewarding.
How do you stay motivated?
- looking up to professionals, inspiring me to continue working hard in order to make a living from my passion.
- reading positive comments and feedback that encourage me to continue writing
What’s been the most challenging part of your blogging journey to date?

What are your future hopes and dreams for your blog?
I would absolutely love to build up a large audience to provide an outlet of healthy escapism for. I hope to encourage young people like me (as well as people of all ages) to work on themselves and their passions. It would be a dream come true to continue working on my blog and growing as a writer I can eventually reach the level where I am capable of becoming a journalist.
