Blog I Love: Yes and Yes
Who they are:
Yes and Yes is written by the effervescent Sarah Von Bargen – a globe-trotting, cheese loving, list making, business woman of the most awesome variety. I’ve had the pleasure of brunching with her while she visited Sacramento and was pleasantly surprised that she is even more awesome in person than she is online.
Did I also mention she has taught English in Taiwan? A girl after my own heart.
Why I love Yes and Yes and what I learn from it:
What isn’t to love? I mean, seriously. Sarah starting writing the blog she wanted to read and as it turns out found exactly what other people want to read too: smart, funny, thought-provoking, inspiring, and helpful posts on a variety of topics.
I’ve learned how to solo lady travel, pack, create a list of new experiences and follow through on them, say NO, restart a new year, give a compliment. Seriously, the list goes on and on, but I think you get the point.
Sarah writes to help her readers. In a clever way. So refreshing!
I’ve even written about adoption for Yes and Yes and was honored to be included in the Yes and Yes community.
Posts I find inspiring:
Greatest Hits! Titles include: How To Create An Amazing Group of Friends, Settle the Eff Down: (Or How to Avoid Psyching Yourself Out), How to Get Over A Break Up, How Do I Become a Grown Up Parts 1 and 2!
Taiwan – Since we are totally taking little girl back to Taiwan at some point, I loved this travel guide.
Sarah revisited Taiwan recently on her way back home. Here are some Notes from the Road.
Sarah’s advice for Getting A Good ESL Job may come in super handy when we return to Taiwan.
If you haven’t already, go check out Yes and Yes and then tell me what you think.
