Hey there,

Sarah Faith!

Imagine this. It’s your birthday and you're about to blow out your candles and make a wish. You close your eyes while everyone sings to you and on the count of 3 of you take a deep breath... 

What did you wish for? I imagine it's a world where you're able to provide for your family without fear of finances. Or it's flexibility in your schedule to be with loved ones. Or the freedom to wake up when you want to and not answer to a boss. Maybe it's having a deeper relationship with God. Or a thriving blog where you can express yourself and earn an income helping others. 

I'll tell you what I wished and prayed for...this blog. I dreamed of having a beautiful blog where I could help others and be an inspiration to them. I want to show people that it doesn't matter where you come from or what you've gone through. You can create a magnificent life. Think I always lived this way? Think again. 

"Sarah is the most genuine and encouraging mentor I've ever had. What drew me to her was both her honesty and down to earth attitude. She's been in this industry for over a decade. She gets it. She gets me.
And she will get you and your vision too."  
-Kate W.

My name means Princess, but I wasn't born into royalty. I was born in California in a family of ten people. We grew up very poor and at one point we all lived in a small 2 bedroom house. I was often bullied for my appearance and for wearing the same hand-me-downs. At times we lived on food stamps and sometimes I didn't even have enough school lunch money. Which meant I would go and sit in the bathroom stall for 30 mins. I got bullied, shoved around, and didn't have a lot of friends to talk to. I figured maybe there was something wrong with me. I wished people would give me a chance because I knew I had a lot to share and could help them. I wanted to be somebody. I wanted to have relationships. I wanted to help others. But nobody gave me a chance. Until...

I started my first blog on Tumblr. It was anonymous. I didn’t want people to see me or give them any reason to bully me. On this anonymous blog, I could be whoever I wanted. I could be a rich girl who was an only child living an incredible life with her friends. I could be a girl who had a loving father. I felt free. For the first time in my life, I wasn't carrying shame. I no longer felt like a misfit or hopeless. I felt heard and seen. I was being given a chance. And the best part? I was helping beautiful and incredible women along the way. 

I became addicted to blogging. I shared everything from health tips to budgeting money hacks. Life was good. But I had my roadblocks too. When you've been blogging for years...you make a lot of mistakes. I quit countless times. I had my social media accounts hacked. I even lost 90% of my content I had written. And I’ve had my fair share of my financial struggles along my journey. But here I am, still blogging and sharing with all of you how to create a blog that’s rooted in service and helps others make an impact.

I get you because I used to be you. 

You can create a blog and turn it into a thriving business. You can make money from your passions. You can create flexibility and freedom.  

I chose the name “Oh, How We Blog” for two reasons. Because it had the word “we” in it and I want you to feel like we’re in this together…because we are. Second, to me this name has become a mantra for me through my journey of blogging. It makes me happy I’m here, because I never gave up on a dream I first had in high school. This blog shows me if I can do it, so can you.
