    I used to read them when I first joined WB, but I wasn’t planning a wedding at the time so my interest kind of fizzled out.

    ETA: I would get back into them now that I am planning, but I don’t need to waste any more time on WB than I already do!

    I paid attention to the two generations that were actively blogging while I was planning and right after I got married because I wanted to see how their weddings turned out. I still check the front page every once in awhile because I admit, I love the recap posts. I do tend to skip the planning posts, but I’m a sucker for beautiful, happy wedding photos!

    I have been following two with interest, but they haven’t posted and I am assuming they are waiting for their wedding pictures to come in to start recaps.

    I also am following bees who aren’t wedding bee bloggers around the site just because after hearing their ideas I really want to see what their weddings look like and I been happy a lot of them have done recaps.

    I also read some old bee bloggers from beginning to end. I think a lot of new people will follow each generation.

    I am excited for this generation to start (Endangered Species) because I didn’t know there were “generations”! Now that I know, I am going to folllow these until the end! I love the DYI sections of the bloggers. Some are really cool ideas that I will incorporate into my own wedding and I wonder if I should give credit to the bee who inspired the idea?

    I do read the blogs, but I will admit that some posts are getting repetitive. I’ll usually just skim through those ones. I am, however, eagerly awaiting some recaps from some bees that have recently tied the knot!

    I used to read them, but after investing my time into reading so many bloggers planning processes that neglected to write recaps in the end, I tend to just ignore the front page.  

    I know that sounds silly, but dang it, if I’m following your planning journey, I want to find out how it all comes together in the end!

    I get “attached” to certain bloggers and some I just don’t. I don’t know why. So the ones that catch me I will follow up til the end. I will always read cake posts and dress posts. I don’t care who wrote them lol. I also read all of the intro posts and the how he proposed posts. But there are certain things that just dont grab me. Oh and while I know its part of the “fun” I absolutely hate when a post about one decision is dragged on and on for like 4 posts. It kills me! and when I see someone do it it will turn me off from reading their posts from then on lol. I hold a grudge!

    There were several bees that I followed when I was planning my wedding. But now I don’t read anymore. I really wish there was an easy way to just see their names at the top of the page and click on them.

    I love the blogs – they’re what got me excited about WB in the first place. Other blogs around the interwebs seem to have such unobtainable weddings that I really appreciate the realness of the blogging bees. But I guess I’m still a little bit of a noob, so maybe my tune will change in a year.
