In other news: This week my Lands’ End post got 1,000 readers in just one day because the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood linked to it in their article about K-Mart marketing their products to children during school. CCFC referred to the ad as highly-sexualized (which in my opinion, it was) and used my blog post to illustrate how parents can and do influence big companies like K-Mart and Sears.
I was proud of my mom-blogger self, and of my little blog.
