    1. That means the world to me!! Especially since your blog is so great and important too!!

      Hey, I would value your opinion on something. I’ve been thinking about dividing the “Favorite Products” page into sub-pages, i.e. have categories when you get into that page. Like Women’s Apparel, Men’s.., Kids… Camping etc. It would mean people have to make one extra click to see the brands but I have a bunch more and I fear the “list” as it is now will become too long and cluttered. If I change it, I can always change it back.. Will you be my test person? What do you think? I’m thinking it would free up some space in order to add some product photos too…
