Ultimate Blog Party in Review


During the week of March 7-14, 2008, 5 Minutes for Mom hosted the “Ultimate Blog Party” where bloggers write a little post about themselves and then sign Mr. Linky over at 5 Minutes for Mom inviting other bloggers to stop by. This was our opportunity to meet new friends and party blogger-style at the Ultimate Blog Party 2008!

There were around 1,400 participants (1,493 participants linked, but many double and tripled linked)-WOW! Many people came to visit me and I returned the favor, visiting them. I also visited many blogs. I have also gained some new Blog Buddies! Some of my current Blog Buddies were at the party too! I really enjoyed this~but I am about partied out!

  1. This was not such a good week for me to have this blog party, I felt to busy to get into it. I really wanted to read more blogs and find new friends. You did such a good job keeping track of your PEEPS, I am honored to be on you NEW PEEPS blog roll. Yeah for me.

    Ditto on what you said! Congratulations-lol! I am honored to meet such a wonderful person! Whew! I am all partied out!

  2. Wow! Thank you for such a wonderful review. I enjoyed meeting you too and hope you don’t mind me adding your link on my site. I am now almost finished with Dear John and I’m loving it. How about you, any review?

    You’re welcome! I don’t mind at all! I haven’t picked Dear John back up yet. Isn’t that awful of me? Usually I can finish a book in one-two days, but with Patch feeling the way he does, I just can’t bring myself to pick it back up. I need to remember that it does get better-lol!

  3. That WAS fun wasn’t it?!!

    It was~but whew~I’m about partied out!

  4. What a great party! It’s always fun to meet new people; now I just have to get back with all of them! Like Janice said, above, this wasn’t the best week for getting back with folks. But I plan to visit everyone who visited me this week…

    Thanks for turning me on to this, Mere! And a nice long scritch behind the ears for Patch from me And Missy the Cat…

    I am partied out-lol! You are welcome! Patch is loving the nice long scritch! Give Missy some fishies from Patch and I!

  5. It was fun but like one reader said, I’m all partyied out too. Did you hear anything yet about the prizes????
