Sarah Stands Out by Using Patch in Her Own Tempo

Oana Filip
interview

We always believed that being true-to-your­self is the best strat­e­gy to get results. Noth­ing beats the great feel­ing of work­ing with peo­ple who share sim­i­lar val­ues. Sarah is one of our beloved cus­tomers who’s on the same wave­length.

In this inter­view you’ll find out that you don’t need a lux­u­ry lifestyle to blog with plea­sure, and that authen­tic pas­sion goes beyond any block­er. It’s not easy to grab atten­tion and main­tain the momen­tum, but when you work hard and part­ner with the right folks things get trac­tion.


Q: How would you define your eclec­tic world?

Sarah: I would say that I’m pas­sion­ate about more than just one thing and there­fore blog about dif­fer­ent aspects of life. I don’t want to lim­it myself to one main top­ic because that is not who I am. I’m real­ly into fash­ion and street style, I love to exper­i­ment with cook­ing and I want to moti­vate and inspire peo­ple to be more adven­tur­ous, bold and dar­ing in life to enjoy every day to the fullest.

I think that small­er blogs and Insta­gram pro­files become more and more impor­tant because they real­ly engage with their audi­ence and feel much more down to earth.

Q: From fash­ion to wan­der­lust, from food to inte­ri­ors: what makes you-you?

Sarah: I always try to stand out from the crowd of blog­gers and influ­encers by stay­ing nat­ur­al and down-to-earth. I don’t live a glam­orous life with Guc­ci shoes, per­fect inte­ri­or and jet set mood, in fact, my apart­ment is way too small for me and my boyfriend, but this is what I’m talk­ing about.

Each and every one of us is per­fect­ly unique. Stay­ing true to myself and my con­tent is very impor­tant to me, espe­cial­ly nowa­days when there are so many blog­gers out there, that write sole­ly with the inten­tion of cap­i­tal­iz­ing on their audi­ence with lit­tle focus on the con­tent.

Q: Your web­site seems to be a col­lec­tion of moods and atti­tudes. It’s a choice or it just hap­pened this way?

Sarah: Exact­ly, the blog is a col­lec­tion of my per­son­al thoughts, moods and things I get inspired by every day. I guess it just hap­pened that way.  I don’t real­ly have a detailed plan on what to post when and how often, it’s more about how I feel on a cer­tain day and what would fit my tem­po.

I’m here to help you create a fabulous blog

Q: The blog­ging play­ground is quite crowd­ed. How do you leap?

Sarah: I mean there are so many blogs out there, espe­cial­ly when it comes to the top­ics fash­ion and trav­el. I guess you just have to find a way to express your­self, your own per­son­al­i­ty because this is what makes you spe­cial and sets you apart from the oth­ers.

I spent lit­er­al­ly weeks on find­ing a prop­er and cool design for my blog.

Per­son­al­ly, I think that small­er blogs and Insta­gram pro­files become more and more impor­tant because they real­ly engage with their audi­ence and feel much more down to earth.

Oh, and don’t for­get about the fun and your pas­sion when it comes to blog­ging. This is why most peo­ple start a blog in the first place, they enjoy writ­ing, tak­ing pic­tures and cre­at­ing sto­ry­lines. You should do it for your­self more than for oth­er com­pa­nies and brands.

Q: Why you choose Patch to be your dig­i­tal com­rade?

Sarah: I spent lit­er­al­ly weeks on find­ing a prop­er and cool design for my blog. The moment I saw Patch, I knew this is what I want­ed! First of all, it real­ly stands out from the usu­al blog themes and sec­ond of all, I’m in love with the clean, min­i­mal­is­tic yet ele­gant design.

The theme edi­tor is super easy to use and I got­ta say, I’m pleas­ant­ly sat­is­fied with the sup­port team! They’ve helped me numer­ous times with set­ting up my web­site and I’ve always felt to be in good hands.

Q: What do you think makes this theme a hit?

Sarah: Def­i­nite­ly the out­stand­ing design and user-friend­ly plat­form it comes with. I’m crazy about the news­pa­per — inspired design and the adapt­able lay­out! I’ve received a bunch of com­pli­ments on my blog theme, thanks Patch! Anoth­er great plus is that it is ful­ly respon­sive and looks awe­some on all devices!

Q: How would you describe your expe­ri­ence with our crew?

Sarah: So far I’m real­ly sat­is­fied with the assis­tance and sup­port I received from the Pix­el­grade fam. I’ve had some minor issues with my web­site and cus­tomiza­tions in the past and you guys were always hap­py to help and tried your best to get it fixed as soon as pos­si­ble.
