It’s June 4th, 2008 and I’m sitting in the corner of my “garden level” (read: basement) apartment that looks out onto a pair of stoplights. Rhianna’s ‘Disturbia’ filters through the window from my neighbor’s apartment and my hands are sweating as they hover over the keyboard.

I’m about to click ‘publish’ on my first ever blog post, on a Blogspot blog I “designed” with terrible free clip art and a moss green color pallete.

I’ve been procrastinating on publishing anything for months because I’m equal parts
a) afraid that nobody will read what I write
b) afraid that lots of people will read what I write

But if you’re reading this in June of 2019, you know the end of the story. You know how it all turned out.

Maybe you’ve read some of the 2,227 (!!!) blog posts I’ve published. Maybe you’ve followed along as I broke up with a live-in boyfriend, dated, traveled the world, got married and became a stepmom. Maybe you found me last week on Instagram.

2008 Sarah had a good time

Regardless of how long you’ve been reading, I want to say a giant, heartfelt thank you for being part of the last 11 years of Yes & Yes. Like, I want to hold your hands in mine and make extended eye contact and say “No, really. I am so grateful.”

If you’ve ever pinned one of my posts, tagged a friend in the comments of one of my Instagram posts, liked a Facebook post, left a comment, or bought one of my courses or ebooks, I appreciate you and I don’t take your support for granted. The internet is full of people who want you time, money, and attention and I am incredibly grateful that you’ve made Yes & Yes part of your online life.

To say thank you (and in honor of 2008, the year all this started), for the next 48 hours, you can take 28% off all my stuff with the code BLOGIVERSARY28. My courses, my workbooks, my audio books, all of it!

Bank Boost: The Book $17 $12.24 with discount code BLOGIVERSARY28

In 6 weeks I’ve succeeding in paying off about $4,000 worth of credit card debt that’s been hanging over my head for ages. I’ll admit I haven’t been following the rules like obsessively down to a T, but I’ve still been successful because your advice is so dang good.

Even just having your voice in my head when I’m at Target to keep me away from the flimsy sundresses is incredibly helpful. Beyond that, the idea that you can figure out what it is about the things you’re spending money on that ACTUALLY makes you happy (or doesn’t) is SO MAJOR. ”   – Kelly
