Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Can you believe it’s time again for the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Moms. The party starts on March 20th and runs until the 27th. For detailed information click HERE. You will be able to sign up and join the party on the first day, March 20th at 12:01 am.

Some of you may not know what a blog party is. Let me take a moment to explain. The purpose of the party is having the opportunity to visit as many new blogs you would like. You write a post telling your new visitors a little about yourself. You sign up at the 5 Minutes for Moms post and link your post. What’s nice is bloggers come and visit your blog. They leave a comment (that’s encouraged) and you visit them and leave a comment. I’ve found the more blogs you visit the more visitors you get.

This party also has a great prize page. I’m giving away a copy of my book (prize #24). There are so many great prizes to choose from. In your party post you list your top 3 prizes you are interested in and link those blogs. In case those top three are taken you can list as many back up prizes you want in the order you want.

I have met many wonderful bloggers this way. Some have become friends and we have been visiting each other’s blogs for years now. Doesn’t that sound like fun?

If you have never participated in one of these parties, I encourage you to try. If you are a male blogger you are stilled welcomed (don’t let the name of the site keep you away).

If you’ve participated in the past, leave a comment to let others know what you think.

I got caught up on your trips to New York. I have never heard of a Blog Party, it does sound interesting.

Dawn said...

I just am so sad that I have to be private, because I can't link people to me - they would be incredibly frustrated. RATS!

I've been thinking of how I met all of my friends and don't remember how we connected.

I have been so bad about keeping up with blogging, just very busy.

I finished your book and it was so good, I hated to see it end. I hope you write another. I absolutely fell in love with Regina, she was my favorite.

I believe we met at the Ultimate Blog party, didn't we? It's a lot of fun and I'm glad to know your book is one of the prizes. I'm definitely going to sign up just for a chance to win it!

Tammy said...

I've done this before too, but no- I didn't know it was already time once again! Thanks for the reminder, Nadine! :)

I almost forgot. This is how we met last year, right???

I don't know if it's good or bad that it is happening during my spring break.

Monica said...
