I have exciting news to share today! This very post is officially my one-thousandth post! Can you believe it? I sure can’t!
When I started this blog back in 2008, it was my little corner of the internet where off and on I would share things that inspired me (like color palettes) and things I made (like wedding programs and invitations). My very first post was about my BFA grad show and the blog was just a side project of Sarah Hearts. At the time I focused on selling handmade bags and hand screen printed apparel. I never knew it would become my career. But in the back of my mind it became a little dream of mine because the more I blogged the more I enjoyed it. So when my business evolved into freelance graphic design, and mostly wedding stationery design, I was more active on the blog and shared design projects and the crafty things I was up to. Then my readership grew a bit and I started collaborating with brands while I also contributed to other blogs. And now at the start of 2015, after blogging full-time for two years, I’ve officially logged—or rather—blogged 1000 posts.
To recap of where this blog has been, here’s a look at the most popular posts ever on Sarah Hearts.
My washi tape paper plate basket is my most popular post ever, which I’m slightly embarrassed of because the photos are not so great. A year later, I made this video tutorial of the same project.
The second most popular post is my printable love coupons. This tells me that people like to show their signifigant other a little extra love throughout the entire year and not just on Valentine’s Day.
Everyone loves a good Ikea hack and my mid-century modern Ikea Malm hack is no exception. It’s my third most popular post!
My customizable paper straw flag template has been so popular! I’ve heard from readers that used it for their child’s birthday, wedding, or graduation party.
I’m excited to see what 2015 brings for Sarah Hearts and can’t wait to share 1000 more posts with you. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, thank you! And if you’re new, I’m so glad you’re here too! You truly encourage me and keep this blog going.
