Sarah Hearts recaps her the most popular posts of all time and shares insight about blogging full-time

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.

  1. Love this and congrats to your growing brand! Many blessings to you as you continue to grow! I love what you do and so happy your local to Orlando so I can attend your fun events!

  2. Oh my goodness, Sarah, what an accomplishment! I missed those paper plate baskets… I just watched the video, and I’m blown AWAY at how easy and adorable they are. You are also such a natural on camera <3 AND, I totally know what you mean about being embarrassed of a project because of bad photos. I avoid mentioning one of my most popular posts for that same reason -.-
    You were the first maker I remember ever following, and will always be one of my biggest inspirations. Cheers to another thousand posts <3
