Join Us for the #UBP12 Twitter Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2012


The Ultimate Blog Party is brought to you by:

We are gearing up for The 6th annual Ultimate Blog Party and this year is going to be bigger and better than ever! We have tons of great prizes in store for you, and we are bringing you four LIVE events this year — the #UBP12 Twitter Party and 3 after hour events Live using Spreecast!

The #UBP12 Twitter Party

This year’s #UBP12 Twitter party is sponsored by Abingdon Press. We are so thankful for all the books that they work hard publishing. One of my favorites is Hurry Less, Worry Less for Moms.

During the Twitter party, we are going to discuss things like

  • not comparing yourself to other moms
  • realizing the uniqueness of your family
  • learning to say no to some things
  • how taking just 5 minutes a day can help you get a fresh look
  • not being a perfectionist–being okay with “good enough”

And we’ll be chatting about the #UBP12 and giving you the chance to share the links of YOUR UBP party post and a new friend you’ve made.

Prizes you can win

We will also be giving away fabulous prizes during the live Twitter event.  By just being at the party and tweeting on the hashtag #UBP12 with us, you could win.

Grand prize: Nook Color (valued at $199)

1st prize: Target Gift card -3 winners (each card valued at $100)

2nd prize: Signed copy of Hurry Less, Worry Less for Moms – 10 winners

Did you know that the beautiful new Cottonelle roll covers by Jonathan Adler can be used for more than just a toilet paper roll cover? The fashion consultant, Vivian St. Claire says “First and foremost, of course, they should be used to respect the care-worthy rolls of Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper,”. But if you have multiples of a design, there are a few ways to use them to spruce up other areas of your home.

I made a mistake. Can you please delete my very first entry, i.e., the one that doesn’t have my Twitter ID? I don’t want to spam the list. Thanks. Emiliana

Excited to join in this year!! I hope my Linky is ok. I didn’t add the space between my Twitter handle @candypo and the title to my blog-The Skeptical Sweeper. Is that ok?


5 Renee Rhodd April 12, 2012 at 8:29 am

Good Morning, I have two entries 41 & 42. I was not sure of what to put in the website area, my twitter handle or my actual website. Entry #41 has the twitter handle. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I have a feeling that this is going to be a SUPER fast party but fun! Can’t wait!


14 Isabelle April 16, 2012 at 11:56 am

I also messed up the first time I entered my link. I’m so glad I’m not alone :-), and I’m totally blaming it on the fact that it’s Monday. Looking forward to meeting some other moms tonight! (Entry 227 is correct; 225 is wrong.)


15 Elise April 16, 2012 at 5:54 pm

I’ve been browsing online greater than 3 hours today, yet I by no
means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
It’s beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web might
be much more useful than ever before.
