The Blog Has Gone International!

It seems as though my blog has gotten a decent amount of attention recently! 🙂  My posts about Build-A-Bear Workshop show up under Google Alerts and similar programs.  Today, SiSi (She works in International Marketing) came over and told me that someone in South Africa asked who I was.  She had found my blog online and had read my posts about the internship.  That’s pretty exciting!

On another note, if you search “build a bear internship” on Google, my blog shows up second in the list after the Build-A-Bear website.  That’s pretty exciting!
