I hope to be posting more regularly in the future. I just don't know when to update this blog. I'm concerned that no one is reading this blog. I wouldn't think that if google didn't say that the view count for so many of the summer blogs posts that I did was zero. So someone, if you are reading this, then read every blog post starting in May. In fact, you don't have to read it. Just click on the link for the post and that should add to the view count. If I don't get view counts soon, I may discontinue this blog with no warning. Now while I have to keep track of the Christmas commercials from year to year (already started the count this year), I am also starting a new tradition with this blog post as evident by its title. I am going to keep track of the number of back to school commercials from each year. I'll start with this year's number and continue from year to year. So if I can stop delaying the point, I'll get to the number of back to school commercials.
I have decided to keep track of the number of back to
school commercials that have aired this year from the ridiculous time it begins
to the ridiculous time that it ends. I will have the total number for this year
and hope that people will enjoy this random meaningless list. In 2014, the
official count of back to school commercials started on June 30, 2014 with the
first back to school commercial. The official count before Independence Day is
1. The official count before August is 48. The official count before September
is 158. The official total is 170. I saw the last back to school commercial of
the year after I had seen the first Christmas commercial of the year, which
speaks madness for both types of commercials. Check back here and you’ll see a
new update every year. Keep in mind that, unlike the Christmas commercials that
I count, this list will contain every back to school commercial instead of
going to a certain cut-off point like the Christmas commercials have. Believe
it or not, the last back to school commercial aired on September 29th.
