My Favorite Craft Blogs: But First, Coffee

United States
February 23, 2021 5:01pm CST
It occurred to me last night that I have not posted a new "favorite" craft blog. Not that I believe many people actually follow these, but I'll post them anyway and see if I get any bites. But First, Coffee is also a Youtube Channel which is where I first came across the lady. She does loads of Dollar Tree crafting / organizing. Apparently she's well known enough to have been featured on Oprah and Dr. Oz. Lots to be found here from motherhood tips to cleaning and crafty DIYS So I guess there's a little something for everyone on this blog. Do you follow blogs? OR Do you prefer vlogs?

I watch a couple of people on their vlogs... one is the comedian I told you about. Another is a gamer I like to listen to... He and his buddy entertain me with their chatter while they play video games. (I don't care about the video games but listening to them always makes me laugh. *shrug*) Once in a great while I'll check out a blog someone here on myLot is writing. I usually get bored pretty quickly with those, though.

A lot of 'lotters have written blogs but I feel like a lot of them don't write blogs anymore. I sometimes check them out too and feel the same way. I used to watch gamer yotuubers but I don't so much anymore. Now the only time I'll watch one is if it's about new content for a game I'm playing. I used to play the Gears of War games, but got bored of those. I was never into COD. I'm more a Sims & Minecraft girl now.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I never bother playing video games unless you include solitaire games in that. Pretty plays all the different games but does prefer certain types. (Don't ask, I don't really listen when she tells me about them. )

@DaddyEvil The older I get the less likely I am to play games. Honestly, I haven't played The Sims or Minecraft in months. I used to get on the Windows computer and play Skipbo with the computer every morning though, does that count? I've never liked the original solitaire but I'll play Spider Solitaire.

@Tina30219 Yeah, I've tried the blog thing in the past and it takes a whole lot of hard work to get followers / started. I think now it might be easier if you can connect a YT channel to it, but even that's going to take work and maybe finding people who also create content in your niche.

Sounds like a good blog, and that's great that she is at least that well known! Very cool. I'll have to check it out. I prefer vlogs, I think.

Yeah, vlogs have a lot more benefits. I like blogs sometimes though because i like reading patterns for crochet or seeing step by step pictures for other things.

@ScribbledAdNauseum There definitely are good reasons for, or are good things in blogs. But vlogs are nice too

@MommyOfEli2013 I guess it just depends on the medium, really.

I will check this one out. I honestly don't seem to find time to follow either one. When I think of something in particular I will look it up on YouTube.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I could cut back time on here but so far it hasn't worked.

@CarolDM I'm not sure that I will ever find a set time to be on mylot. It just seems that I'm here throughout the day.

They can be fun. There must be a lot that still read them / follow them because there are so many around.

She has definitely made a name for herself, that's for sure. I don't follow a lot of them either, but I want to try to.
