by Susan

Twitter Live Event on Monday Night April 4th

Ultimate Blog Party 2011 - Mom Blogs Link UpThe #UBP11 hashtag stream is already rocking, but let’s crank it up higher on Monday night…

#UBP11 Twitter Party — 9-10:30pm Eastern, Monday, April 4th, 2011

This will be an hour and a half dedicated to getting to know each other on Twitter with questions about blogging, social media and YOU! We will host a special Twitter Handle RSVP for this event so you can find and follow the other participants easily. Check back for that post this weekend.

Rachel from Busy Mommy Media is going to join us as a co-host of the party. Follow Rachel @busymommymedia.

We’ll be handing out fabulous prizes including:


  • 15 Lifetime Licenses of MarketMeSuite – I can’t even tell you how much those are worth… because they are literally PRICELESS!

    As I explained a few days ago, they have permanently closed sales of the lifetime option of their licenses. MarketMeSuite is the fabulous Twitter and Facebook application that I’ve been using for the last few months. I’m totally in love with it.


  • $50 Home Depot Card – provided by Nan from PlayfulDecor.
    Follow Nan @PlayfulDecor and Like Playful Decor on Facebook.

  • $100 Land’s End Gift Certificate – Yes, our friends at Land’s End have got a $100 Gift Card with one of your twitter handles written all over it.
