Besty Bird has been one of my favorite bloggers for years. Her posts are eclectic, informative, and sometimes a lot of fun to read. It turns out that today she celebrates her 5th year as a blogger. The fact that her "kid lit" remark set off a flurry of posts and tweets about whether or not to use the term speaks to how many followers she has. Happy birthday A Fuse # 8 Production. You're posts are always interesting and it seems occasionally provocative.
I know that some dismiss "kid lit" as a term, but I must admit that I'm pretty comfortable with it. I know others disagree, but it sure fits better into limited character tweets than children's literature, and I seriously doubt whether those who don't take "kid lit" seriously are any more likely to do so if we refer to it as "children's literature."
