Podcasts, blogs & influencers you should follow
Let’s dive in, starting with social media!
Instagrammers you’ll love
Instagram is one of the best resources you’ll come across. Unlike Pinterest, with Instagram you get a first-hand look at one person’s creative lifestyle – in a glance. Need daily visual inspiration to keep you plugging away at your mobile home remodel? Then Instagram is the place to be!
First up is our personal favorite, @laineydrewblog. Ashley James and her family live in a 1997 remodeled mobile home, and her farmhouse aesthetic is just so attractive. She proves that mobile home life can be beautiful.
Michelle at @houseoftransformation also has plenty of delightful things to look at on her page, and lots of delicious recipes as well. She’s also the creator of the @mobilehomefarmhouse, which she calls “a place where manufactured homeowners can connect, share ideas and get information.”
The woman behind @thefrenchcottage2 is making the best of mobile home life (and making it look easy). She has some quirky design inspiration and remodeling stories for you to delve into. And if you like midcentury modern style, rustic farmhouse design, DIY inspiration, and a lot of pink, give her a follow.
Two blogs to follow
We know you love our mobile home blog (you’re reading it, after all!), but let’s spread the love! Though lifestyle, DIY, and home decor blogs are in abundance, mobile home-specific blogs are hard to come across. But no worries! We found a few great ones that you should check out.
MHVillager offers a blog with tons of useful articles to motivate you to live a fulfilling life in your mobile home. Plus, they offer great mobile home solutions and updates.
Next on the list is The Frugal Farm Wife: Life Well Lived on a Budget. And this one is just what it sounds like – a blog dedicated to frugal and healthy living. Although the blog’s author, Elise, posts about anything and everything farmhouse-related, she and her family remodeled and live in and a mobile home. So her life is a testimony to the fact that mobile home living is not just about surviving, it’s about thriving! And her zest for healthy mobile home living will inspire you to thrive, too.
Get out your headphones
It’s podcast time! Doublewide Dudes is up first. This podcast tackles the myths of the mobile home industry and the reason mobile homes have such a bad reputation. What do they argue? That mobile homes are definitely a viable option for homeowners today and that the market should be better understood. The episodes are an average of thirty minutes long, just right for a lunch-break listen. They cover everything from market-related topics to mobile home experiences (including interviews of families and property owners).
“Ever thought about investing in mobile home parks, but don’t know where to start?” the Mobile Home Park Minute asks. “This is the show for you!” In easy, bite-sized episodes, this podcast asks the important questions about getting started in the mobile home market. And episodes are only about ten to twenty minutes long apiece.
If you’re looking for a more substantial bite of mobile home investing education, check out Mobile Home Park Investors with Jefferson Lilly & Brad Johnson. At about forty minutes long, each episode is an interview with mobile home owners, park owners, and folks who restore vintage mobile homes.
