i'm so excited mod*mom is in the sunday new york times style section!!!
i'm so thrilled + honored to be included in their coverage of female bloggers becoming more influential + successful (thank you kara!) (full article here)
plus, martha producers just sent my martha stewart living podcast (it's my very 1st podcast i've been on + so exciting to talk with martha's style genius pal about an eco-friendly product i love). they had to edit out 20 minutes of us chatting about martha + more ways to decorate with flor.
also, i'm invited to cover the emmy awards in september, so i get to interview + photograph actors, mostly with kids/babies, so that should be fun + exciting! they asked me for my favorite children's products, so i'm compiling a list. so far i've told them bloom + boon. do you have any product suggestions or questions you want me to ask your favorite telev ision actors who are parents or eco-conscious?

I just found you through the NYT story and am excited to dig into your blog.

ow exciting! I listened to the podcast while making dinner on Friday and it was great. You're right - the quality was only so-so, but I liked it and wished they hadn't cut if off as the conversation seemed to relax and was getting interesting.
congrats! you are famous!
You are becoming famous, you mom designer/skate/mom you! Thanks for sharing w/ us. It's unfortunate that the sound quality was difficult on the podcast, but even through that, I could hear your level of professionalism. And being quoted in the NY Times was very cool. Keep it up and I'll be sure to get your autograph next time I see you in person!
Oh com'on you ARE kind of famous, aren't you?
I am listening to you right now!! You sound just great and very professional!! I am soooooo proud of you!

You GO, Mod*Mom!!!!!
Congrats on the New York Times article. I orginally started reading it to see if they mentioned Stephanie Klein, and found your blog. It's fantastic!
I almost keeled over when I read the article today to see two of my favorite mom bloggers in the article! Way to go and congrats on the emmy gig! Nice - so happy for you!
That is SO very cool. Wonderful exposure for mommy blogs and you! : )
I'm so proud of you! you're an amazing and talented human being.
You are by far, the biggest, best mom-blogger I know (many of the "mommy bloggers" on Twitter may not appreciate that honesty). You deserve all of the attention you get - from both companies and readers. Congratulations, Mod*Mom!
Hi, Kristen. Congrats on the NYTs article. I just read it this morning and found it inspiring. I believe people like you will help smash through the glass ceiling. Thank you!
That's cool!!!! Good for you!!!!!
Wow! What an awesome giveaway! We are moving (yet again...grrr) and I will lose a carpeted area for the kids! Although i would love this in the dinning room or my bedroom or even the living room it would probabbly do more good for my 15 month old to play on. I really like the brook needlepoint stripe. Thanks again for the chance.
WOW Amazing!! Keep me informed! I might post about your interviews and the stars goodies!!
Congrats! You definitely deserve the recognition!
