Teen Blog Spotlight + Giveaway

Welcome Danai Kamvoussiora, the writer behind the blog Books, Music, Beauty, Experiences. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of Danai's interview.

Why did you decide to start a blog?
Well, I've always admired people who put their thoughts out for all to read. Blogging seemed to be the best manner for me to do that as well. 

What should readers expect from your blog?
I love books and music so I incorporate both of my loves in the blog. Readers should expect book reviews and piano videos mostly, but I will also post beauty tips, and share some of my life experiences.

What do you find most challenging about blogging?
I think the most challenging thing about blogging is to find something to write about that people want to read. Running out of ideas makes me kind of nervous. 

What advice would you give someone who wants to learn to play the piano? 
Learning to play the piano seemed to come easy to me. I've always felt like I had a connection with it, so when I turned nine I begged for piano lessons. My advice is to find a qualified teacher who inspires you rather than one who puts pressure on you. Also, watching YouTube video tutorials help.

Do you plan to post any tutorial videos in the future?

Actually, I hadn't thought about it but it's not a bad idea. Although our notes are named differently in Greece, I would attempt a video tutorial if followers asked.

Who are your favorite musical composers?
I really love Yann Tiersen, Ludovico Einaudi, and Yiruma.

If you could meet any YA author, who would it be and why?
I would say John Green. I discovered his books last year and fell in love with his writing. I started watching his YouTube channel and thought he was hilarious and an amazing person. It would be an honor and a dream come true to meet him.

What are your five favorite books of all time?
My favorite books are The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, Parallel by Lauren Miller, Fangirl and Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

What do you like best/least about high school?
I really like being with my friends and messing around, but I don't like all the homework and extra lessons we are assigned.
