Wow… the momosphere is sure rockin’ with Ultimate Blog Parties! Look at the size of that Mr. Linky… it’s at 1470 at the moment.
So have you met tons of new bloggers? Are you getting a little overstimulated… are you starting to look a little like Olivia after a bit too much blog partying?
Well don’t panic. The Ultimate Blog Party 2008 Mr. Linky list isn’t going anywhere so you can keep visiting new bloggers for as long as you like.
We’ll keep the link at the top of our site for the next few weeks, and the post will permanently exist at http://www.5minutesformom.com/3055/ubp-08-party-post/
We just wish we’d been out mingling more… but we’ve been stuck in the kitchen! Don’t you just hate it when you throw a fabulous, rockin’ party and you can’t get out to mingle with your guests because you’re stuck in the kitchen.
Well Janice and I are those party hosts that never seem to show their faces… and we’re very frustrated about it.
We are so swamped with emails and behind the scenes stuff that we’ve hardly made it to any of your party posts yet. (By the way, if you’ve emailed us and we haven’t replied… please accept our apologies, we’re trying to keep up…)
But we’ll keep trying to pop in to visit as many of you as we can.
The Prizes Are Coming…
Okay, so the official party is starting to wind down and Pamela is working away drawing winners and assigning prizes.
We had originally planned on drawing the prizes today and then announcing all the winners in one post on Monday. But we realized that it would be much easier for Pamela to send off emails to winners as she worked through drawing names. (We had planned on just letting the prize donors contact the winners through their blogs, but this will should things easier on everyone.)
So keep an eye on your email (including your junk mail as these things tend to get caught there).
Once Pamela has drawn all the winners, we will publish the full list of prize winners. We won’t bother waiting until Monday, since folks will be gradually finding out over the next few hours. We’ll just go ahead and publish a post about it as soon as we have the final list ready.
Remember to Introduce Some of Your New Friends
Sometime next week, publish a post introducing a handful of the cool new blogs you visited. It’s hard to pick just a few… but try to spread a little link love to some of your new favorites.
To get you started, check out the After Party we threw last year.
For now, keep on partying… and good luck in the prize draw…
