MMM ’20 Sunday Sewing Vlog Special!

Click here to see Days 1-3, Days 4-7!

I decided to try something a little different today and do a vlog about my (multiple) attempts to alter my McCall’s 5779 to fit better.

I prefer blogging over Instagram when it comes to reviews of patterns and descriptions of projects, but vlogs have grown on me. I think they work better for some things – for example, in my video I can show you what I mean as I am explaining it. It is infinitely better for showing the movement and fit of a sewing project, but I really love those genuine, not-so-polished vlogs where you feel like you’re just having a good chat with a sewing chum. How do you feel about instagram vs. blogging vs. social media?

  1. It’s great to branch out and try new things to see what format works for you.

    I enjoy hearing people’s voices on occasion, especially for people whose blogs I read, but as a regular way of consuming information I much prefer reading posts and looking at images as opposed to watching videos. I just find reading to be more calming. I think I’m the minority, though, as so many people who used to have blogs have ceased updating them in order to move towards YouTube and Instagram. Instagram is ok, and full of lovely photos, but again, I much prefer reading a blog to scrolling through Instagram.

    Best,

    1. I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who prefers blogging. I left it for a long time for Instagram, but realized posting on Instagram was much more about other people than blogging is – I see it as almost a diary of my projects. It is also so hard to find things on Instagram. And I still prefer Youtube as a supplement to a blog post! I’m really sad how many people have left blogging in the past 5 years.
