These guys are incredibly generous with their time, knowledge, mistakes and personal space. I have read all their posts since inception and I am a better person for it. My house is too! I realize that they have affiliate links on their site, but in my opinion, they still leave too much money on the table. I would love to see them monetize their site even more, so that they will be around for the long haul.

Great blog design, frequent content and they take their dog on their vacations! Ive said this before but these two are like the Brad and Angelina of the home blogger world.

I love the tone. They're a down to earth couple doing normal people renovations. I also like the mood boards as a source of interesting affordable pieces. Even when I don't agree with their aesthetic, I think they're pretty cool.

Great diy posts, how-to's, before-and-after, guest makeovers, and much more! All around well-designed, maintained, and written. Professional and clean look, and an entertaining read each and every post they make.

They are so easy to relate to. They are my age, married the same amount of time and they love their dog...another similarity. I go to their blog feeling like I can't do anything to update my house on my own, and I come away equipped with enough house inspiration to conquer the world.

Sherry and John (and baby!) are simply wonderful - their neutral palate, DIY tutorials, Mood Boards and quirky sense of humor makes their blog all the more enjoyable (AND they are super frugal so it's amazing what they are able to do on a budget). Not only are they a help in day-to-day home improvements, they are a down-to-earth couple with a cute Chihuahua! What could be better!?!

Straightforward. Not too fancy. Realistic. Not self-important. Smart. Fare more believable and inviting than most design-related blogs. They seem like people I'd be comfortable around, not the type who would make me feel inferior.

I share the DIY spirit of the bloggers and have a house about the same vintage that I am working with.

I just started reading Young House Love this year and I feel like John & Sherry are my close friends. My husband probably gets sick of hearing about what John & Sherry are up to. Young House Love mixes their house renovations up with reader's redesigns, green living tips, money savings ideas, and lots more. I am officially addicted!

John and Sherry are real and down to earth. You know they read every single comment because they respond to questions and make you feel like an old friend. Their blog has given me such great ideas, inspiration and confidence and I attempt to find my own DIY nitch.
