I wasn’t into blogs at all either.  And I had no crazy files of inspiration.

Haha I guess so!  This post-a-thon isn’t hopping like they usually are.

Well, I love non-wedding blogs so moving to wedding blogs was an inevitable transition. Unfortunately my google reader is bursting! It’s probably a good thing you never picked up this nasty habit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

They make me feel bad.  As in I can’t produce those fantastic results with my limited budget and time.  Which makes  me feel like my wedding will be a fail. 

Then I remember that none of my guests read wedding blogs.  None of them even know what a candy buffet is – so for them whatever I do will probably be crazy artsy and off the beaten path.

hmm. I also LOVE blogs in general (mostly art/design) so moving over to wedding blogs wasn’t too tough….

At first I LOVED them and lots of my initial inspiration came from around the blogosphere

but after a few months I got kinda sick of ’em. Then bored by them. Then overwhelmed by them….

AND now I just stick with a few tried/trues and a few real brides….

And of course the ‘bee. I’m not sure how I’ll ever quit the ‘bee! ๐Ÿ™‚

Totally not the only ones!  I don’t read any blogs except ones on the Bee, and even then I pick and choose. I have started to compile some pictures, but I”m pretty sure they all came from the Gallery on the here or the first page of google images like you said!

I’m lazy too!

I don’t understand how the whole “reader” thing works either. I googled Google Reader once, but I didn’t really look into detail and I don’t know how to start one of those or anything.

Just to explain google reader, you add Subscriptions to various blogs (by typing in their address) and Reader compiles all of the blog posts in one convenient location. So you don’t have to go through bookmarks to find new posts. You can then put them in different categories, etc ๐Ÿ™‚

Hmmm…. I already have gmail, so I assume I’d just use that to log in to see my reader?

I love the wedding blogs, but I love all blogs.

Two of my BFFS got married around 2006 and, at that time, there were NO blogs. Four years ago– no blogs. I find that so strange now. I think the knot and marthastewart had websites, but other than that, there was very little out there. They both had lovely weddings and often joke that they’re so glad they weren’t exposed to all that’s out there now…

I (obviously) can’t imagine planning my wedding w/o the help of blogs, but they’re a very recent phenomenon!

@helstrong: You can get to the reader with the link at the top of your gmail account when you are signed in.  It’s up there with Calendar and all the others!
