Vlog Talk – Magazines we have but don’t read

I’m linking up once again with Vlog Talk! You thought I was done after last week, but let me tell you — vlogging is kind of addicting, and now that I’m learning my way around iMovie, it’s getting much easier.

But before we get to my mad vlogging skillz, go check me out over at BizChickBlogs, where I’m talking about whether or not I want to homeschool my children and weigh in on the conversation!

  1. Vlogging *is* addicting, isn’t it?

    And I’m with you- I don’t read a whole lot of magazines anymore.

    And Highlights! Aww- my kids *need* Highlights, don’t they?!

    Great job, my friend! XO

    1. I know — it’s not that I don’t want to. But when I have “leisure time” I usually would rather be doing something else like reading a book or blogs.

  2. You and Kate can sit and read your National Geographic together. 😉 I love it to Parents “I follow you on twitter…” Cute vid!

    1. Ha ha! I had to cut the part when I said that NG was actually for my husband, a gift subscription I got him a few years ago. I look at the pictures. 🙂

  3. I always screw up polls about magazines. I’m a caucasian suburbanite mother who reads no fashion mags, ever. I read Consumer Reports, I bought my husband a subscription to Cook’s Illustrated, and I recently switched my daughter’s High Five to Highlights and her Big Backyard to Ranger Rick. She also gets the Just for Fun thing from Ranger Rick for extra puzzles. Oh and she gets Know, a science magazine from Canada.

    I get Family Fun but I’m always backed up on reading it. It’s similar to you with Parents. I used to get Parents, Parenting, Parent-up-the-wazoo-etc, all those, but stopped when I realized I was too crunchy for mainstream mags and too mainstream for crunchy mags. I keep threatening to start my own mag: Parenting Tips For People Who Care About Sustainability Etc. But Also Have Crap To Do And Don’t Like Tofu. It’ll have to come in automated brain-download because I’m too busy to read it, let alone write it.

    1. Kimberly, that is an awesome description: too crunchy for mainstream and too mainstream for crunchy. That’s exactly how I would describe myself in general.

  4. We have a magazine in common! YAY! I love it when you said you follow “Parents” on twitter but you don’t read the mag! HA HA HA!

    And I TOTALLY rock the hidden picture at the ped’s office. ;-P

    Love your vlog – great to see you and hear your voice. Shamefully I do believe this is my first visit to your blog! ACK!

    1. No shame…I just moved from blogger a few weeks ago and changed the name and look. I’m much more at home here now!

  5. HA! I have subscriptions to Parents mag, Parenting, Modern Parent, Working Mother, etc. because my husband wanted to get them all for me when I was pregnant. And I dont’ read a one.

  6. I liked it, so funny! I also have magazines that I do not read. I should follow them on Twitter, that’s easier. You are a genius!

    1. Ha ha. I don’t think my following them on Twitter has gotten me anywhere. I’m not famous yet. 🙂

  7. You cute cup of tea!!
    hahah. $5 – Jesus Christ!!!
    and then?
    Imma Parent!!
    OMG this was hilarious!
    the ending, my fav!
    I so thought the baby was making an appearance but no, it was the cat, who you so lovingly threw off the bed!
    i could just eat you up!

    1. You should! My girls love it and are now climbing into the chairs asking to draw in their magazines. And I’m not kidding. They seriously love the hidden picture puzzles, which I honestly thought they were going to be too young for.

    1. I do love me some pasta. Although sine I haven’t actually read the magazine I have no idea what they’re talking about.

  8. I love this!! I too get Parents Magazine and don’t ever read it, even though I see lots of articles I know I should be reading! LOL. I hope you keep vlogging…I love watching them and Cheyenne loves to see the videos of Gigi!! Keep up the good work, you do a great job!
