Housekeeping: Comments Section

I’ve started to get a lot of emails and comments from people that are selling a bag. Some of these are quite obvious, like a press release or marketing pitch. Those I welcome since I’m always on the lookout for new bags.

Others are clearly marketing pitches in the comments section, sometimes disguised to look like a regular comment. In the early days of TBB I automatically approved those types of comments because I thought it would be interesting info for readers. But now I’ve decided to keep the comments section clear of pitches, and instead let it be just people like me discussing bags they like and don’t like.

However for those of you selling bags and wanting to get the word out–never fear! I’ve set up a special place for you to post information about your cool bag. The place is the guestbook here or you can reach it by the “Bags for sale” link over to the left.

TBB is moving!

As of early July, The Bag Blog’s home office will be moving from Texas to Chicago! Based on our recent visit last week Chicago is a town that loves bags as much as we do. I saw a bag store on almost every corner, and I can’t wait to get back to the city and start exploring.

Posts may slow down a bit as we starting packing and getting ready to move. In the meantime, if you know of any great Chicago bag stores or designers please let me know.
