“The blogging life is about relationships — meaningful friendships that grow out of sharing who we are and getting to know one another. And like real life friendships, online friends need a place to meet and mingle.”
In honor of my 100th Follower, and 1st Blog Anniversary, I’m participating for the first time in the Ultimate Blog Party which starts very soon, and I’m inviting you to attend! The Ultimate Blog Party will be held April 9-16th, 2010 and it’s an opportunity for you to win some very nice prizes, discover blogs that you wouldn’t have known about any other way, (last year there were over 2000 bloggers who participated!) and be encouraged as a Christian woman, wife and mom (though no one is excluded and all are invited).
The sponsors of the UBP are twin sisters, Susan and Janice, who are Christian wives and moms, and who publish the blog 5 Minutes For Mom. You can visit their site and find out more details on how you can participate in the UBP, see the prize list and enter to win–there’s already an incredible list of valuable prizes! Speaking of prizes, I have donated a $25 E-gift certificate to Amazon.com to the list!
And because I am also celebrating my 1-year blog anniversary and my First 100 Followers, I am going to host my very first Blog Contest! Think of this as your personal invitation to my personal party, within a party! I love to invite people to my home, and so I am inviting you to my blog home, and I hope you will come. I will be giving away prizes here, as well! If you were to come to my home, there would be something good to eat, people to meet and hopefully something good you would come away with! Well, that’s what I’m going to try to give you–virtually–at my
Party Contest, and what you’ll find here between April 9 and 18 (my contest runs a little longer than the UBP:) Food in the form of Recipes (I’m sorry, but you’ll have to do the cooking–I haven’t figured out a way to let you actually sample my cooking!); Posts that introduce you to new people, ideas and helpful tips (perhaps an interview or two); and something good to take with you in terms of Spiritually Enriching and Informative Posts, plus Prizes I will be offering that you can enter to win. I’m still working on all the details, so check my blog often to find out what’s happening! I will give the details of how to enter the Contest tomorrow in my Party Post, which will also link up to the Ultimate Blog Party, so come back and see what’s in store and how to enter!
