I have searched and searched, and even though I see lots of info promoting the Ultimate Blog Party, I have not seen anything that describes exactly how it works. Can someone please post a link for me to learn more about how the UBP works? And what exactly I need to do to participate? Thanks!!


2 Janice April 7, 2010 at 1:59 pm

Oh so sorry if this link wasn’t easy enough to find in our posts. I will have to improve that.

Is there a fee? How do I promote my website, my music? Thank you for the link!

I have to say this is the EVENT of all EVENTS! I have had the MOST fun, met so many wonderful people, found new and wonderful blogs – Just a great time all around.

So excited!

sounds fun :D


9 Mimi April 8, 2010 at 12:02 am

I did a blog post about the upcoming party highlighting some info you shared about last years UBP and then some about this years! So excited to be part of it. Still not sure how to be part of it all, but I will figure it out as we go. Twitter parties I still don’t get how to participate and stay up with the conversations! LOL The tweets go by so fast and there are so many of them. I get lost pretty easily. *grin*

I am SO glad I saw this post go by on facebook earlier Janice! Otherwise I don’t know if my post would be done on time! lol! But it’s done and scheduled! :)

My husband is having some medical issues with his heart and has had test after test for the last 2 weeks. We meet with the doctor on Monday for full results. They have already been able to diagnose some serious issues, including a valve prolapse, so now we just need to find out the extent of the problems as a whole and hope the doctor has a good solution. *praying* So I don’t know how much I will actually be able to participate in the fun. I am looking forward to blog hopping though while I can during down time. Maybe it will help keep my mind positive!
