Okay, I admit I love photographs. I love to take pictures, I love to look at pictures, I love the story that a photograph can tell.
But I’m not an Instagram user.
Sure, I have it. I’ve used it, even. I think I have three pictures of my dog. But it’s just not the format I enjoy. To be honest, I never even think about it. Plus the majority of my requests to follow are from kids aged 10-15, those I work with at church, so it’s not something vastly entertaining for me, with selfies every six seconds.
So instead of my four favorite Instagram peeps, I instead am giving you four peeps that I read daily (or as often as they post)! Yay for blogging???
1. John and Sherry Petersik. I know I’ve mentioned them before, but their home adventures in DIY, child rearing, and life in general can be found at www.younghouselove.com. Love them because they seem to keep it real, and they are from my ‘hood. Like three doors down from where I babysat three nights a week as a kid. Just bought a new house, so it’s fun to read along.
*disclaimer: all other people I’m listing were found through #1! Why not pass on the love . . . .
2. Katie Bower at www.bowerpowerblog.com. Sherry and Katie, BFFs, met through blogging. I think. If I remember my story right.
3. Beard and Pigtails at, well, www.beardandpigtails.com. I don’t remember how I found them through Young House Love, but I have added them to my reader and I love it. A single dad living in the midwest trying to raise his daughter the best that he can. He isn’t perfect, he admits it. He tries his best and should be proud of that.
4. Ashley and Greg at www.7thhouseontheleft.com. Ashley’s graphic eye and Greg’s geekiness crack me up. Love them. Bonus: They’re also local. From the part of town my Grandpa was raised in back when it was acres of farmland (and parts of it still is!)
