Default Favorite SU blogs or You Tube Videos

Just wondering what your favorite SU or other stamping blogs or videos. I enjoy reading Linda's stamping Loft and Such a Pretty Mess. Tell me yours.

As a new-ish demo with a newly active blog (see my signature), I appreciate any new visitors/followers that want to stop by! I'm getting some posts and projects lined up for the next few days.

Here are some of the ones I like to follow, in no particular order:

Michelle Zindorf, Brayer Extraordinaire: http://zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/

Mary Fish, Stampin Pretty: Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty Blog, Stampin' Up! Card Ideas & Tutorials

Lydia/UnderstandBlue, SCS guru: Understand Blue

Lyssa, my fabulous upline: Song of My Heart Stampers

Have you followed Stampin' Up on Pinterest? Tons of inspiration and project samples there!

Thanks for the great blog lists. I have looked at them all tonight and bookmarked them so I can go back. Your blog is coming along great. Another blog that I like is Stampin Style. Thanks for enabling me. I love finding new stamping blogs

God bless you, sweet friend! I can't believe I'm the first blog you ever found. Really? I'm honored! Back when I was a demo, I used a whole lotta SU. Not quite as much today, but I still have some favorites. But those spring minis always tempt me with their lovely assortments...I already have a list! Thanks for making my day!

Karen, the button you need to click on is not always in the same place on a blog. I can tell you where mine is, you can see what it looks like, then you'll know what to look for on other blogs.

Right below the Magnolia's Place header, you see a couple of tabs the first of which says 'home'. Right below that is what you are looking for. It's a blue button that says, "join this site." It is nearly always found right above the little pictures of people already following the blog.

On my blog it is at the top. On some blogs, you find it along the sidebar perhaps down a ways. Hope this helps

I am big on watching You Tube! Fortunately, all of the bloggers I like also do videos!! My favorites (in random order) are:

Chic n Scratch - Angie Kennedy Juda
Stamp With Tami - Tami White
Stampin Pretty - Mary Fish
Stampin Smiles - Shelly Godby
Carolina's Creative Pad - Carolina (Carolina, like Cher, needs no last name!)
Dawns Stamping Thoughts - Dawn Griffith

The 3 I check daily:
Dawn Griffith-I just love her attitude and Hello Stampers, great videos
Angie Kennedy Juda-great videos
Diana Gibbs-this blog makes me smile everyday, stamping and chatting.

The newest one I have found and am enjoying it is Connie Stewart and her flash cards.

I have subscribed to the RSS feeds of so many blogs that I had to make a separate folder for them. I'm sure I'll be adding even more with the ones named in this thread. Some aren't very active, but this is what my SU-RSS folder looks like:

I add the RSS feed to use with Google Reader. Works from any device I access the internet from (unlike browser favorites), and it works very well to keep me on top of everything i want to scan through or read.

I follow several that have already been listed, but here are a few I love that I didn't see listed above:

Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie
djkardkreations
On A Stampage...
3 Monkeys throwing around some....PAPER!!!

As for following a blog, there are often several options. I have my own blog set to allow people to subscribe by email or they can click the "join this site" button and join through Google Friend Connect. I like using the Google feature because I can see new blog posts from my favorites in one place, but I also subscribe to some blogs via email, and I have several people who subscribe to my blog via email rather than through a reader. There are usually lots of options, so use whatever is easiest for you!

Okay, I have a related question for you all. What is it about your favorite blogs that you like? A couple people mentioned videos. What other types of things do you like to see?

I just went and looked the djkardkreations blog. Oh, my gosh, her Playhouse is to DIE for. I wonder if she would adopt me? I could happily live in that for the rest of my life. (I haven't actually looked at any of her creative stuff because I can't get off the playhouse page!)

Isn't it amazing? Just wait until you read some of her posts...she is hilarious! I literally laugh out loud most days.

Carole, I really enjoy your blog!

To answer your question, I really like to read blogs with written or video tutorials, or even just an explanation of how the blogger created the card. I love learning new techniques and getting new design ideas, so this is what I look for. Some of my favorite bloggers also tell a little about their lives in their posts and I feel compelled to keep reading to follow their stories. I don't post a lot of personal details on my own blog, but I do enjoy reading it on others' blogs!

I am hoping more people respond to your question...I'm interested in hearing what others are looking for!
