I’m Hilal. I’m a blogger.
I’m a 19-year-old girl living in Germany. But since August 2018, I am studying abroad in Nijmegen/Netherlands, where I live at the moment. I began blogging at the age of 10 when my friends and I decided to create a blog where we share our daily lifestyle. As I became older, I wanted to have a blog for myself, something that represented me, so nisahilalyildiz.blogspot.com was born. After 3 years of blogging and not reaching anything except 13 followers and 4000 total pageviews, I restarted. I started all over again with peonycrescent.com, and after that renamed my blog to selihal.com. And so, here I am, chitchatting with you and enjoying writing!
Apart from writing on my blog, I’m also a new author in the big world of book-writing! Currently, I’m writing two books. Besides that, I am also designing and sketching. Before I decided to study social sciences, I wanted to become a fashion designer or a fashion journalist.
Selîhâl is a mixture of Selîka and Hilal. This blog is about my experiences in my life, and in the life of others. I want to write about things, others are afraid to talk about. Things, people tend to push to the side and suppress. That’s the motto of my blog: Revealing unspoken thoughts.
