An Ode to Sara OC (inspired by Carly Rae Jepsen)

As some of you who follow us on Twitter, or have been in to see us recently, will realise – Sara O’Connor, our queen of digital, and editor-extraodinaire, is leaving us today, to have her second baby. Since we started Hot Key, she will officially be the first person to leave us – albeit temporarily – so needless to say, we are finding it hard to say goodbye. So, Amy and I thought, what better way to say goodbye, than in the form of song. And what better song, than this take on last year’s classic pop song…so enjoy, Sara and all, here’s “Go have your baby!” (Click play below, then scroll through the lyrics)

Sara OC sad rejections

You are our digital belle
You’ve got a story to tell
We look to at the helm
And now your on your way

Can you stay just one more day
Blogs and iBooks are OK
We aren’t trying to say
But please don’t go away

Your stats are glowing
Story Adventure growing
Ebooks in the knowing
Where you think you’re going Sara?

Hey, we will miss you
And this is crazy
But don’t you worry
Go have your baby!

It’s hard to think about
Hot Key without you
But don’t you worry
Go have your baby!

Hey, we will miss you
And this is crazy
But don’t you worry
Go have your baby!

All the work you’ve done
Will keep us busy
So don’t you worry
Go have your baby!

You take time over your books,
Authors love the way they look,
You gave more than you took,
You’ve such a key role to play

Your videos are fun
You’re always on the run
It’s like we’ve only just begun,
But you have to go away

You are always knowing
Which way the winds are blowing
We’ll try to keep things going
Where you think you’re going Sara???

Hey, its like we just met you,
And this is crazy,
But we’ll be okay,
So go have your baby.

It’s hard to say bye,
To you lady,
But we’ll be okay,
So go have your baby.

Hey, its like we just met you,
And this is crazy,
But we’ll be okay,
So go have your baby.

And all the Hot Keys,
Will miss ya digitall-y,
But we’ll be okay,
So go have your baby.

Until you come back into our life
We’ll miss you so bad
We’ll miss you so bad
We’ll miss you so, so bad

Good luck Sara! Come back and see us soon with cute baby in tow. It’s been amazing.

  1. Oh my goodness, you guy are SO AWESOME! I will look forward to the music video of this song. Perhaps as a present for my new baby??

  2. Constantly in awe of your energy and dedication!

  3. Best wishes for the arrival of the new little reader, Sara, and I know it will be hard to leave them, but come back to Hot Key soon!
