This is IT!!! The OFFICIAL Party Post for the Ultimate Blog Party 2010.
Welcome to the Party!
Welcome to the 4th Annual Ultimate Blog Party. We are Janice and Susan, the twin bloggers behind 5 Minutes for Mom and we are thrilled that you’re here!
The Ultimate Blog Party is a virtual party celebrating online friendships.
Join the party and find new blogging friends, connect with longtime blogging buddies and maybe even win a prize.
If you’re wondering what is going on here, don’t worry… Here’s
Everything You Need To Know About The Ultimate Blog Party 2010
But, the basic idea is really simple… here, we’ll quickly tell you what’s going on…
Party With Us…
Janice and I each have two children. Janice’s boy, Jackson, is eight years old and her little Olivia is two years old. My Julia will be five in May and my Sophia is two years old (two weeks younger than Olivia.)
We’re both lucky to have husbands who put up with our crazy blogging lives. (Although, neither of them like us to blog ABOUT them… which is why you don’t see many photos of them on the site.)
Around here you’ll often find us laughing about stories of our chaotic lives as work at home moms. But 5 Minutes for Mom is about more than us… it’s about Bringing Moms Together. This site is really all about you!
