This is kinda weird, but years ago, I used to follow a bunch of Anthropologie bloggers. Like, basically a bunch of women in their 20s and 30s who shopped at Anthropologie and posted about it. I liked a few in particular who blogged about their lives. I remember there was a “huge scandal” in this niche blogging community: one of the most popular bloggers had been running a shopping service for customers in places where Anthropologie didn’t ship, but was actually just taking the money and never mailing anyone anything.June 27, 2017 at 8:53 pm #692062
I miss The Toast and Hairpin a lot and would love to fill those voids with something else if anyone has any suggestions. I’m also a fan of AAM even though I no longer work in an office setting – Allison is a good writer and very matter of fact about navigating difficult relationships. And she’s always kind, which I like.
I don’t know if any blog has really been life changing for me, but I’ve learned a lot from several of them including of course DW. That’s actually why I read advice columns so much – they provide a good education in human nature.June 28, 2017 at 8:23 am #692090
I like Dr. Psych Mom (http://www.drpsychmom.com/). She writes frequently about parenting, children, getting along with family, and relationships, and these are all areas that have helped me understand my own family better. This is one of my favorite articles, where she wrote about prepping a small child for surgery: http://www.drpsychmom.com/2015/02/18/how-to-prepare-your-toddler-for-surgery-my-own-story/June 28, 2017 at 1:08 pm #692122
Copa, I remember that! Kim Baxter from Anthroholic, right?June 28, 2017 at 4:08 pm #692146
Yes! I was unemployed at the time and spent a little too much time reading blogs, and my Anthroblogger community was hit HARD. I’m actually so curious what became of her.June 28, 2017 at 4:21 pm #692147
How can there be not one, but many, blogs just about a store? Like what was interesting about it – seeing what the clothes looked like on different body types? Or just “the cray?”June 28, 2017 at 4:53 pm #692154
It was a whole lotta outfits of the day. I had no personal style at the time, and was just out of law school where everything was boring/traditional suits. These were mostly professional women who came up with work outfits that were polished, but not stuffy, with way more personality than we were “allowed” to show in law school. (True story: once got reprimanded for wearing a pant suit in front of a judge, because women should be in skirts.) It was all very boring in hindsight, but I had a lot of time to kill when this “scandal” happened. My favorite bloggers in this weird little community were the women who had more general lifestyle posts with recipes, DIY projects, home renovation projects, fitness, etc.June 30, 2017 at 8:59 am #692353
I’ve followed this blog for years until she went to her new format. I’ve enjoyed watching her style change. She used to live where I was at the time and I loved her backdrops and after I moved I used to pine for that city so hard her photos helped.
She’s since moved from Cincinnati so I don’t frequent as much.
