About

Hi! My name is Sarah.

I’m a 38- yearold SAHM (stay at home mom) who fixes broken blogs and is a freelance web developer. I have four tattoos, purple hair, super near-sighted, and I’m married with two sons. My oldest is 17 and the youngest is 10.

I speak so fast people mistake it for being nervous or anxiety when really, it’s just I have SO MUCH I WANT TO SAY! I wish I was able to present myself in a more calm and soothing manner, be able to speak more eloquently but I’m not that kind of person. I have a crappy internal filter and tend to reveal way too much about myself too quickly. I also tend to invest a lot of myself into friendships very quickly (time, energy, gifts, etc). Not sure why I do that either.

I love all things that sparkle and I’m pretty sure my love for glitter is well known by now. I’m an introvert but can fake being an extrovert when need be. I LOVE TO READ! Especially supernatural fiction. I’m a big day-dreamer and have problems sticking to any sort of schedule (not for a lack of trying!), I try to see all of that as positive qualities because I can be very spontaneous!

I also have twelve kitties!

Photography

I’ve been in love with photography ever since I was around 9 years old. I started with a basic 110 film camera and just slowly upgraded from there. I started with digital in 2001. I currently use the Nikon D750 (full-frame FTW!) for the body with a variety of lenses. I tend to do mostly nature macro with a sprinkle of human folk every so often!

Blogging

I started blogging on March 21st, 2001. I had various websites before then but didn’t really blog, I tended to work on a fansite my twin sister and I had at the time, LJS The Mystery. I bought OneStarryNight.com on November 3rd, 2001 and blogged there until August 2019! I decided to have a fresh start and decided to completely start over with my site and all social media.

Blogging and being a blogger in-general is vastly different than when I first began. These days a lot of it is about being a brand, having a niche, and monetizing. Which is all fine and dandy. I do miss the old days though, where it was a bit harder to own a domain and be selfhosted, where it was more about a community and personal blogging. Not everything had to be controversial and everyone responded to their comments LOL!
