About

about-pagesarah von bargenInternet friend!

Hello!  I’m glad you’re here. I’m so happy that you found your way through the cat videos and Buzzfeed lists and memes to Yes and Yes.  (I really love cat videos and memes so I know what a triumph this is.)

When people ask me about my blog I tell them “It’s a lifestyle blog for smart, funny people.” And then I might point at them and wink and say “So you’re allowed to read it.”

Yes and Yes grew out of my desire to read A Very Specific type of blog that – at the time – didn’t exist. I liked lifestyle blogs (who doesn’t?) but I wanted something with a tiny bit more depth.  

Interesting interviews in addition to the recipes posts.

Thought-provoking personal essays and “what to wear for a weekend away” posts.

Smart career/money/travel/life advice plus funny photos of animals.

I wanted to read something that acknowledged that fact that all of us are multifaceted. You can be a wife and mother and still want to read an interview with a woman who joined Ashley Madison.  You can be a PhD candidate and love fashion.  You can be a grown up … and not quite know how to be a grown up.

So every day I try (with varying degrees of success) to create a space like that.  I interview interesting people, share travel tips to cool places, connect nice people, try new things, find recipes from awesome books and far-flung countries, and write about a million how-tos.

sarah von bargenI started Yes and Yes in 2008 and since then I’ve slowly (very slowly) found an audience of 11,000+ daily readers and been featured in places like Lifehacker, Problogger, Glamour, and Forbes.com among others. I’ve created two ebooks, an ecourse, an app, and an awesome/ridiculous calendar that features my cat dressed in literary-themed costumes. Yes, really.

For the last three years, I’ve been self-employed, harnessing all that hard-won know-how for hundreds of clients. I work with creatives, bloggers, and small businesses to create super doable, totally effective, non-overwhelming plans for internet domination.  Ideas for blog posts + social media plans + pitch templates + promotion ideas – I can help with those.

When I’m not blogging or working with clients, I’m probably somewhere else (I travel 3 months out of the year), throwing or attending a party, eating cheese, or asking my meteorologist boyfriend if he can do something about this weather.
