Favorite Bloggers…

… from our “Where Bloggers Live Group”.  As you may know – “Where Bloggers Live” is a group of ladies from around the country who post about their homes (inside and out), towns, and generally their lives, and sometimes strange things.

Instructions from our “Boss Lady”  for this month were :  Favorite Bloggers (YT, TikTok, IG).  Now this confused me a little bit.  I consider myself reasonably computer savvy, but I have no idea what YT is, I don’t “do” TikTok, and I don’t consider IG as blogging.

I do have an Instagram account – started it for my cross stitch business a number of years ago, but I could never see the advantage of it and it’s been hacked a number of times, so… I’m almost never there.

Now, I know I’m old and probably not “with it” very much, so here goes for me.  I’m still listing our group, as they are all definitely among my favorite bloggers.

Hello, sweet Iris and Koda! I keep trying to figure out all the other social media things, mostly Instagram, but that becomes a rabbit hole for me…I start surfing reels and then quickly blow an hour of time, then complain that I don’t have any time…which I would if I hadn’t wasted it frivolously (and I’m CERTAIN that you, of all of us, know that about me). Tik Tok scares me because of all the junk I’ve read about how it steals your privacy. I agree that blogs are the safest surf, and am very happy with our little circle,… Read more »


It can all get confusing with everything going on in the world of “blogging and pseudo-blogging” can’t it?! I am still a fan of “regular blogs” although I do read what is available on Instagram. Mostly, though, it is a lot of ads to sell things! I am so glad to have your blog to read, Iris. It is a favorite with me for sure!

I love that you featured US!! What a sweet thing to do, even though we were asked not to!! What a rebel you are. I was confused by YT in our directions for this month’s prompt. I thought to myself, ‘oh dear, another form of social media I have to try to learn and keep up with!’ Just dawned on me today that YT was YouTube. I do watch occasional music videos on YT. And I like watching trials on YouTube. With all the heinous crimes lately, there are going to be a number of trials on YouTube in the… Read more »

Oh, Iris, you rule-breaker, you 🙂

These days I lump all of the above (blogging, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok) into the realm of “content creating.” So, no, Instagram is not “blogging” technically, but it is a personal outlet for content. So many bloggers I used to follow back in the day have moved over to the more visual, short-form social platforms like IG, YT, TT, that I feel they’re in the same category now.

YT is YouTube which is almost like a University nowadays. I swear you can find anything there.

I don’t even have an Instagram account, Iris, so I will join you over here on the bench with the other “not with it” bloggers!
