Guess what! We are going to a party! It will be fun. It will have prizes. You won’t have to dress up (unless you want to). You won’t even need to find a babysitter for the kids and/or grandkids, let alone a companion for the elderly parents. You can do it from the comfy spot right in front of your computer. I gotta admit, that’s MY kind of party!
I am officially inviting each and every one of you to join me on Friday, March 20, for the 5 Minutes for Mom’s Ultimate Blog Party 2009. In the column to the right, you will see this button.
Just click it on Friday and enter the party. There you will find all sorts of interesting blogs to wander through. Most, though not all, are mom/grandma blogs, (though I think there’s a grandpa or two there), some are caregiver blogs, many are Christian blogs, and all of them are interesting blogs. Even more fun, there will be prizes GALORE!
As 5 Minutes for Mom explains:
Only party guests (bloggers who signed the Linky and invited guests via a post and Invitation Button AND non-bloggers who have attended and commented on at least 20 participating party posts) will be eligible to win prizes.
We will draw the winners from the comments at the main 5 Minutes for Mom UBP ‘09 party post. So make sure you leave a comment on the 5 Minutes for Mom UBP ‘09 party post. (Our post during the party — not their instruction post!) We will award the prizes by a random draw.
If you have your own blog, I would highly encourage you to pop over to 5 Minutes for Mom http://www.5minutesformom.com/ and sign up to host a party at your site as well. Then come back here and leave your site in the comments section.
For all you wonderful readers:
The Ultimate Blog Party is for non-bloggers too! What would blogs be without readers?!?
So whether you have your own blog, or you just read blogs, you are invited to the party — and you are included in the prize draw!
All you need to do to be eligible for the prizes is comment on our party post and attend some parties.
(Visit and comment on at least 20 blogs participating blogs – simply click on the blogs name on the list of links called the Mr. Linky to party hop – and you will qualify as a party guest.)
I will be posting a “party post” on Friday, March 20, 2009, (hopefully on the dot of 12:02 a.m. Eastern time or thereabouts). Just pop on by anytime after that and start having fun. Be sure you comment on at least 20 blogs (starting with mine 🙂 ) as well as the 5 Minutes for Mom blog (on the post for March 20). If you win something, be sure to let us know so we can celebrate with you!
The following week, I’ll be posting an after-party article to introduce us to new blogs and writers I’ve met and would love to hear who you met. As you can imagine, I’ll be looking specifically for blogs/writers who themselves are in the midst of the Sandwich Generation or who have ways to help those of us who are taking care of elderly parents, grandkids, and/or everyone in between.
Good reading, new friends, fun prizes. Sounds like a great time will be had by all. Y’all come, you hear. 🙂
