Ultimate Blog Party 2012
The UBP12 is brought to you by:

Did you realize that during the Ultimate Blog Party we are rapidly building a blog directory and social media profile directories that will be continually used throughout the year?

Yes, those linky lists essentially become DIRECTORIES that are browsed and used for months and months to come.

We personally continue to click through the linky lists throughout the year. This year we’ll be trying to visit each blog and follow all the Facebook Pages, Twitter Handles and Pinterest Profiles, but it will take some time to get through the lists.

The linky lists CLOSE for new entries on Friday, Apr 20 at midnight Eastern. But remain open for browsing permanently.

So you want to make sure you have your blog listed as well as your Facebook Page, Twitter and Pinterest handles.

How To Add Your Listing To The #UBP12 Linky List Directories

Step 1 – Write a post on your blog where you introduce yourself, perhaps include a photo so people can remember your face and share a little about what your blog is about. Include one of the banners on your post so visitors recognize you’re part of the #UBP12.

Step 2 – Take the url of that post (referred to as “your party post”) and add it to one of the following 8 blog linky lists. Remember to choose the one that best fits your blog. You can only enter your link on ONE of the 8 blog lists below.

  1. Mom Blogs with Product Reviews and Giveaways
  2. Mom Blogs with very Little Product Emphasis
  3. Christian and Religious Blogs
  4. Special Needs Blogs
  5. Specialty Blogs
  6. Business Blogs
  7. Daily Life and Opinion Blogs
  8. Dad Blogs

You can ALSO add your Facebook Page, Twitter Handle and Pinterest Handle to the Linky Lists titled…

  1. Facebook Pages
  2. Twitter Handles
  3. Pinterest Handles

How To Add Your Link

Not sure how to enter your post on a linky list? It’s very easy and simple to do:

Click on the link that says “You are next. . .click here to enter”

Once you click the link, you will be taken to the linky page to enter your link:

  1. Enter your part post URL. This will be the post you wrote about the Ultimate Blog Party.
  2. Enter the name of your blog here.
  3. You can add your name and email if you want.
  4. Choose “auto crop my image” and then click the “FROM WEB” button so that Linky Tools can pull images from your blog as your thumbnail for the list.
  5. Choose an image you want to use by clicking on it.

That’s it! You are now entered in to your Linky list of choice.

New UBP Navigation Drop-down Menu

To make browsing to the different Linky List pages and the various Prize pages, we’ve added a new Ultimate Blog Party menu in our top nav bar. You can now get directly to the particular UBP page you want right from the menu as shown below.

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,”.
