Click this link to find all the information for the Ultimate Blog Party 2012


We have vacuumed up the pine needles, eaten all the treats, and stuffed all the holiday trimmings back into the bulging, cardboard boxes. The Christmas season is over…

And now it is time for bloggers to get prepared for the blogging party! Yes, it is time for The Ultimate Blog Party 2008, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.

But before we get started, we thought we might spice things up with a preliminary contest – a design contest for the Ultimate Blog Party button designs. Last year we had some fantastic designs by Heather. This year we are going to get you into the action.

Click here to vote on the design.
Voting is open until Monday Feb 4th at Midnight Eastern time.

Last year’s Ultimate Blog Party was such a fabulous event – it was the place to be with almost 1000 bloggers participating – that we simply have to party again this year! Just like last year, the party will go for a week, (March 7th to March 14th,) and be packed with prizes. This year’s prize page is already starting to grow, and there will be tons more prizes added before the party starts.

Pamela from Happy Panda will be helping us manage the prize contributors.

If you want to submit a prize for the party, please email Pamela.

Thanks Pamela!

Everyone is welcome to host a prize. All prizes will be listed on our Ultimate Blog Party 2008 Prize Page. The page will be continually updated with new prizes as they are submitted.

Our prize page last year received tons of traffic.

Please Note: Prizes must be for something FREE. Discounts on products and services will not be included. If you are providing a gift certificate, it must be for an amount that can purchase an item.

If you missed last year’s party – or you just want a refresher on how it all worked – click over and check out last year’s instructions and last year’s Ultimate Blog Party post, complete with the Mr. Linky of all the participating bloggers.

We will post again soon with further instructions and details on The Ultimate Blog Party 2008, but for now send in your designs, prize donations and start getting ready for the The Ultimate Blog Party 2008!

And remember, if you want to submit a prize for the party, please email Pamela.

    I’m so excited! The UBP is how I found all my bloggy friends! I was new to blogging and it was the perfect introduction to how great the blogosphere is!

    If I have five minutes to get creative in Photoshop, I’ll try to whip something up. Otherwise, I’ll just vote for the awesomeness that someone else creates. :)
