The best part is that it runs from April 1 through April 8 so you have several days to participate!
It started in 2007 as a way for bloggers ( mostly but not exclusively moms) to get to know each other and has grown from an impressive start of 1000 links to last year’s 2300 links! It kicks off tonight and the hosts will tweet about it when the links are up so the best way to know the minute the party starts is to follow them on Twitter: @5minutesformom and/or watch for hashtag: #UBP11
All of the party deets can be found here: http://www.5minutesformom.com/34651/ultimate-blog-party-2011/ and if you decide you want to join the fun you can add a button to your party post from those found here: http://www.5minutesformom.com/34650/ultimate-blog-party-2011-badges/
Oh and did I mention there are PRIZES? I’m participating because it sounds like a fun party but prizes are always nice too! The party starts at midnight Eastern time but I'm putting this post up early to share :)
To those who are visiting The Answer Is Chocolate from the party, WELCOME!
Grab your favorite beverage and a chocolate chip cookie. I am Carol, mom to a soon to be HS graduate, thick in the throes of college decisions and soon to be an empty nester. I started my blog almost a year ago to connect with other people who get waaaay more excited than my husband does about Mod Podge, papercrafts, scrapbooking supplies, jewelry making,thrifty vintage finds and transforming what some would call trash into treasures. I combined my love of handmade things (those I make and those I admire) and my passion for all things chocolate into this little corner of the internet where I’ve met some amazing and talented women. I’m really excited to be participating in The Ultimate Blog Party and look forward to meeting even more wonderfully creative people.
