Party of Sarah Brand + Website Launch
Meet Sarah! We had the ultimate pleasure of working with Sarah on her brand and her website over the last few months. We’re super thrilled to (finally get around to) announce that her site launched in January of this year! She’s been blogging up a storm since the new year, and I think you should go check out her site, Party of Sarah!
Learn More About Sarah
Tell us a little about yourself & what motivates you.
I‘m Sarah, the lifestyle blogger behind PartyofSarah.com and an aspiring author! Almost all of my writing, from my first novel, to my blog, and even down to my SnapChat is about celebrating the craziness/loveliness of new adulthood, and connecting with other fabulous post-grad women! I’m motivated not only by these connections, but also by the dream of being able to write full-time as a blogger and author!
Can you tell us how you arrived at the point that you are now in your blog & where you’d like to be in 5 years with your site?
Well, Rome wasn’t built in a day and trust me, neither was this blog! The learning curve that’s required to blog at the caliber that I wanted to blog is STEEP, y’all. I was very overwhelmed by it. Now that I’m finally launched I still have a lot to learn, but I know I couldn’t have gotten this far without Beck and Jeff. They fill in the gaps where I’m still learning, allowing me to focus on content and building connections. In five years, the dream would to be blogging full-time at PartyofSarah.com and (fingers crossed!) expanding the biz enough that I could hire on some staffers!
How long have you been thinking about taking this step & do you wish you’d done it sooner?
I made up my mind that I want to become a blogger after I was advised that it would be a great way to build a readership, and attract the attention of publishers to my writing. Well that was (drum roll) over three years ago. Do I wish I’d done it sooner? I wish I COULD have done it sooner, but I had so much to learn, I’m not sure it could have come together any sooner than it has. That being said, blogging has changed a lot in the last couple of years and there are so many amazing resources now. Not to mention, I found Beck and Jeff. I’m grateful for that, but I wouldn’t have waited any longer than I did!
What do you find particularly motivating with respect to celebrating one’s life in the moment?
For a very long time I held myself to a standard of perfection. I’m still a recovering perfectionist, but I’ve found that having gratitude in the moment is the most joyful and fulfilling way to live. I’m hoping to make a living as writer and creative entrepreneur…if I was ONLY focused on the future, I would go crazy! It’s going to be a long road, and I hope to enjoy every second of it.
Will you be partnering with anyone in the future on your blog?
I’m just starting out, but I absolutely hope to!
What do you hope to become known for with your blog?
Being a voice of positivity and joy for women in a period of life that is often looked down on, or ignored entirely.
Do you have any words of advice for people thinking about taking the same step as you & launching their own blog?
Make a list of everything that’s holding you back. Whether it be fear, specific skills that you don’t yet have, the time to put into it, etc. From there, identify what things you can solve or learn on your own, and what things you’ll need help with. There’s a lot of been able to learn on my own with the help of Pinterest, but things didn’t really move forward with my blog until I finally decided I needed design and site maintenance help. It was just too overwhelming to take on by myself. If you’re in the same boat as me, I highly recommend the team at Autumn Lane. If you think you can learn it, learn it! If you don’t, get some help! You can do this.
Check Out Her Brand!
Sarah’s brand, overall, is super fun, playful, and celebratory…and it suits her! I think that Sarah may be one of the most positive and upbeat clients I’ve worked with, and seriously, she made it a breeze.
