Which DIY blog will become “the next Young House Love?”

KB will definitely try to capitalize on it. I'm sure she and Jeremy have a plan of attack. I don't read MN regularly but he really does seem like the best choice to completely push YHL out of the spotlight.  And rightly so.  It seems that he works hard and is talented.  His house is really beautiful.  

 

ETA: And with this post I'm now Expert Hamcat! dancinglemon Although if the YHL thread dies I'm not sure how much posting I'll be doing. confused

She's definitely trying. I have a hard time reading her content though because it's all stockpiled sponsored crap and pointless updates (which I guess is better than some of the other stuff she's posted). I've been following MN and they did just buy another house that they're rehabbing to sell (and being damn straightforward about it almost as a nod to YHL, IMHO) and I totally agree that he'd be the best choice. Personally I like his designs much better than YHL's and think he has so much more heart in everything he does. But I really burnt out on YHL and couldn't stand their writing so I'm a tad bit biased. It's refreshing to actually see someone melding their personal style with their home's as opposed to vomiting pinsperation on every square inch of their whitewashed walls.

Congrats on the expert btw! dance

 vomiting pinsperation 

I LOVE that! That's going to become one of my criteria for deciding whether to do a blog project or not. Am I just vomiting pinsperation? Would I have done this project without a blog or Pinterest? More bloggers should ask themselves these things more often. I feel a flow chart coming on. It has a big toilet in it!

I'm a newer person to GOMI, and I cannot believe there isn't a forum just for Michael Wurm – Inspired By Charm. He doesn't get a bazillion blog comments and it surprises me because his site has everything the fans want.

Michael does it all:

he pops color (and he can bring it on just like Sherry)

he dips it

he guilds it

he DIY's it

he crafts it

he rearranges his mantle regularly

he cooks and photographs everything to ensure everything is pinterest-worthy (think Pioneer Woman)

he decorates and re-decorates as often as Thrifty Decor Chick

Anyone else love to hate Inspired By Charm?

For some reason, all of KB's sponsored posts don't bother me as much as other bloggers. I don't read any of them but I feel like KB is obviously in this for the freebies and doesn't seem to hide it. YHL and similar were more in it for the fame/recognition/followers/validation which is annoying enough but when they also try to score freebies, it multiplies the annoying-ness. It then makes it worse when they play the 'woe is me' act as if they're forced to take all the free crap and try to justify it as anything other than just wanting free stuff. I know I wouldn't turn down freebies – but at least be honest about the fact that you like free products. Who doesn't?!

Not the next YHL but came across this blog today and she very clearly has bee influenced by YHL, however she pulls it off a bit better.

That dude is a w***e for sponshorships. Had to stop reading when he got sent to test drive some car shit I can't even remember. He had holiday styled shelves and made pie for a year too. That guy is just insufferable. I'd like to know how he pays his bills once he closed the bed & breakfast.

Yeahhh. And I get that you're DIYing a baby, but I shouldn't have to scroll through eight posts before I see something else you've designed.

I really like Sarah – been reading her blogs since she was in college and working on casseroles and little art/craft projects. I love her writing style and she's so smart and talented, but she tends to just disappear when reality hits her. She'll close up her blog and declare she's too busy. Then randomly a few months later she opens a new blog and is gung ho for a while. Cycle repeats.

 

It's too bad because she has a lot of talent. She recently started making youtube videos to supplement the blog and she's good at that too. But now they've moved out of their house and she's gone radio silent again.

No idea if these people have their own thread anywhere or whatevs but there is something SO John and Sherri about the people who own "Vintage Marquee Lights". I Just found them through this unbelievably YHLesque "viral vid" (here's the link but tl;dr it's a pregnancy announcement set to Britney hits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYQiAxhe2Ok). So they have the "dorky!" and "funny!" videos down, plus they sell their crap in PB teen and some other places, so they also have the rando product lines. Today was the first time I'd heard of them and just kept thinking "YHL" everytime they popped up in my FB feed. Also, this "viral vid" only has like, 600k views, how is that even viral?

I guess to their credit, they had the product line first and then got the following, but still.
