Welcome to My New Old Blog

I have some exciting news to share! Today is my 40th birthday so I thought it would be a good day to announce the launch of my new website, Adventures of Herman.

A no-makeup pic from this morning after picking up my free birthday Starbucks drink.

You may not notice too much of a difference here aside from a few aesthetic changes. I had been wanting to update my WordPress blog’s title for a long time. Initially, I created the site to serve as my freelance writing and copy editing portfolio but in 2015 I started blogging there. I added “Adventures of Herman” as a blog tagline, and never really even considered another name when it came time to pick an official new URL.

Who Is This Herman Person?

When I was 16 and started driving, my parents signed me up for a AAA membership. My last name is Heiman, but the membership card that AAA sent me said “Sarah Herman” on it. I thought it was hilarious, and so did my friends, who started calling me “Herman.” The nickname stuck to the point that my friends from high school still sometimes call me Herman, and I’ll sign off my emails to them as Herman, too. So thanks, AAA, for inadvertently spawning my nickname! (They did send me a card with my correct name on it.)

Some Light Housekeeping

Though my blog is often beauty-focused, I write about whatever strikes my fancy. And I am going to continue to do so; there won’t be any change in content here. Lots of beauty, occasionally style, with some food and cooking, pop culture, geeky stuff, and travel sprinkled in.

For those following sarahheiman.wordpress.com on an RSS reader you’ll want to update the URL to adventuresofherman.com. (Am I the only person who still uses an RSS reader? I use Feedly, in case you want to know.)

Nothing has changed in terms of my disclosures, which you can read here if you’re so inclined. TL;DR: I am a part of several affiliate and refer-a-friend programs and will make a small amount of money should you click on the banners or links on my website and then make a purchase. If there are affiliate or referral links on a post, I will note it either at the top or bottom of the post.

If you happen to see anything funky going on with my new website, please feel free to let me know by leaving a comment or filling out the contact form.

Thank you all for reading, and I look forward to sharing many more posts here with you in the future!
