Anyone think they will be back with their annual April Fools post?

This morning I thought their publisher had some how gotten them an amazon april fools joke because  Ihad an email for : Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint

 

Thinking it was just a book on painting… but that's the first part of their last book. I hope they come back with something for the fangurls to wet themselves in excitement over.

Yeah… they posted some crap on Facebook.  Sherry's voice is as grating as ever.

That god damned black shirt is so faded and stretched out. The video should have been Sherry, hair down, stud earrings wearing a coral shirt………… HAHA APRIL FOOLS… Then her back in her black shirt, hair up, long earrings.

WMC, hat would have been far more amusing. 8)

 

Still, why post an Aprils Fools Video, if you do not intend to return?

(Also, they could have set up a "We are back" pot, just to finish with HAHA APRIL FOOLS. But uhm, maybe that woudl be a bit harsh for the still loyal fan girls %)

I don't know why, but I took the question to John in the omgsofunny April Fool’s Day video, as a big middle finger to the fans.

Question was: "What color should I paint my bathroom?"
Answer: "I don't know, it's your house."

You know they got that question all the time. I'd read it a million times.

Also why has the last few photos/videos been in the office? If they aren't blogging daily and the book is done, what are they doing in there all day?

Maybe the idea that the rest of the house is decorated completely different then it was is a valid idea? Professional decorator? Book projects?

I can't get over how many IG comments there were from fangirls who woke up wondering if they'd do an April Fools post, or how they hadn't known how they were going to get through the day without one! Get a life people rolleyes

I still think they called quits on the blog because they could see their relationship was suffering. And maybe headed toward divorce.

It’s like they weren’t even real people anymore. They weren’t John and Sherry from the block, they were “John & Sherry Petersik copyright-trademark-all-rights-reserved.” They ate, slept, and breathed the blog. They were DIYing and commenting slave-robots.

John was cranky at any criticism, Sherry was glued to her phone. Not fun. I think they were smart enough (and rich enough) to just decide to pull the trigger and save their marriage.

I gotta say though, I don’t think six months in a house with my husband with neither of us working would save my marriage, lol. Is it really possible neither of them is doing any work of any kind? If they were consulting or writing articles or ANYTHING, we would have heard about it. It just seems weird. How much money did they make, for the love?

I share this theory. I think the blog ended for personal reasons. Nothing huge like a health scare but because they realized it was ruining their marriage and they had enough money stock piled to take their time deciding on their next step. The blog shut down was too random to have been planned in advance. They have done sneaky things before but they always left obvious clues to their true plans.

Because the office is never used, so it probably stays nice and neat and clean.

 

I'm sure the rest of the house is a disaster area, since they are no longer taking daily photos of it.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I think book 2 will do well. I think they still have a significant fan girl base and it will do well. I agree with many here that they'll come back a month or so before the release and do some irregular posting- just enough to hook the fans that weren't total OMG YHL, but still like them enough to come back into the fold. As dumb as their designs may be, they have some marketing sense and there's no way in hell their book publisher hasn't dedicated PR dollars to them and a media/book roll out plan after they closed down. I too think their house is likely almost done, and they've had for sure had some outside design help. Just my 2 cents!

Happy that there's some YHL forum action finally drinking-10drinking-10

bandwagon They'd be silly not to do a few blog posts leading up to the release. At the very least, people might come back for the novelty or curiosity and then maybe go buy the book.

^ Yes. Next week maybe? I remember it was a week or two after my daughters, and she turned one a few days ago. Then Claras… 5th? Maybe they will start coming back with birthday posts, a "what weve been doing" etc… and ease back in just in time for book #2
