The Sandwich Generation is Officially Invited to the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party

by Kaye Swain

Tomorrow (April 9, 2010) is the official 2010 Ultimate Blog Party for moms, dads, grandmas, and grandpas, including all of us granny nannies who are online – making it a perfect time for some lighthearted fun for the Sandwich Generation! With the varied responsibilities of caring for elderly parents and enjoying fun and educational activities for grandparents and their grandchildren, some of us don't always get time to get out and do things just for ourselves. The Ultimate Blog Party, put on by the wonderful people at 5 Minutes for Mom, comes to our homes and our computers making it ultra-easy for us!

SandwichINK participated last year and we're excited to be able to do it again this year! There will be a ton of blogs signing up and welcoming new visitors. I'll be looking for ones that are of special interest to those of us in the Sandwich Generation and writing about them here. If you spot any, I would encourage you to let us know about them in the comments below so we don't miss them. :)

On top of that, there will be a LOTS of free giveaways – both at the Ultimate Blog Party site as well as at various individual blogs, including SandwichINK! And if you don't have a blog, that's OK. You can have fun too – both in visiting various sites AND signing up for the contests. Here's the latest news info:

Bloggers — Sign the “MckLinky” at 5 Minutes for Mom between April 9th – 16th, invite your friends via a post, put the Invitation Button on your blog’s sidebar and comment on our party post.

Non-Bloggers — We want you to be able to have fun and party, so you are included too in the prize draw. All you need to do is comment on our party post and attend some parties!
