For a while there, blogs were "IT". Everyone had a blog and we spend hours upon hours blogging and looking through our blogrolls. I know, at one time I could not start my day without trolling through my top two dozen blogs.
I loved to get ideas and see what my "friends" were doing.
Now, with Facebook, and Pinterest, I find that I spend less time looking through blogs.
I read my family's blogs. Don't go anywhere near Pintrest, unless it's a specific search. But a blog entry better have a clear title and a couple pictures of the project near the top. I don't read sentimental posts if I'm in a hurry. I want to be able to get the idea of the project quickly from pictures and then I'll come back to it.
I have my blogs in my bloglovin reader; and save my favorite ideas to pinterest, so when ready to craft, I know where to find things. Unfortunately, these blogs are such a temptation to spend more........but, at the same time; I now, do not spend money on

Thanks to bloglovin' I'm again able to keep up with my favorite blogs. I am on Pinterest but not regularly. FB I'm on and off all day (iphone) -- mostly to keep up with pic of our children (both live in different states) and close friends.
I use feedly to follow blogs now too. I often look at fb for quick updates and use pinterest to find new ideas but usually click through to see the full post and other posts. I need morw time to stay on top of all my followed blogs.
I use bloglovin and I rarely read long posts. Long posts and lots of blah blah blah turns me off.
I check the pictures and if there if there are some instructions, I read the post.
Most of the times, I see the pictures and I scan through the text to see if there is something I need to know.
I likes some facebook pages, however I don't like facebook too much.
Since I moved to a new city and started a new job, I've found my free time to be more sparse than before, so my blog reading has been suffering, but the interest is still there! I use Pinterest to pin stuff I'm into and to look for very specific ideas, and I'm totally not into Facebook at all, so blogs are still what I prefer. I like that there's text that go with the pictures, a story behind how an idea came about or how to reproduce a look or technique. I will admit I don't read everything, again, because time is of the essence, but I do like having the option to read about the projects when I'm wondering how something was done.
I also like the personal aspect of blogging and how we can get a feel of who a stamper is by the snippets she shares through stories, get to know her personality. You don't get that with Pinterest...
