Ultimate Blog Party 2012!

I have been at this personally blogging business for just about a year now. I had been blogging for my company for many years, but started Ideally speaking to give myself a creative outlet and to share stories as a new mom. I wanted the freedom to talk about everything from diaper changes to politics and everything I could squeeze in between.

What I didn’t anticipate finding with my personal blog was the amazing level of connection it would bring with other online moms. I used my personal twitter to promote my blog and walked right into a world of the most open and sharing women I have ever had the pleasure of talking with. It truly makes me feel like a member of the world wide moms club :)

It is because of this that I am very exciting to be taking part in my first ever Ultimate Blog Party with the lovely ladies at 5 Minutes for Mom! In the past year I have come to live for mommy meetups and this will be the marathon of all twitter parties and video hangouts!

    I began blogging roughly 5 years ago as a way to make adult connections. A full time SAHM who also began caring for my mother for the last years of her life I needed an outlet. Blogging was it for me. This is my 3rd year participating in the UBP and each year I have just moved or changed my blog name. I am finally under my own address using WordPress which has been a HUGE change for me. Welcome to the party hun.

      Thanks Angel! UBP has been a wonderful experience. I am so glad I decided to take part in it. I recently bought my domain and it does make a huge difference.

      Hi Janet! Thank you. It just recently went through a much needed site redesign :) I find the pink brings out my girly side just a bit more…which is good, since I grew up with three brothers and don’t always remember that side exists!

    The blog party is so much fun. One year I tried to visit every single blog. I didnt make it but I heard someone else did. I know I can’t do it this year, but I’ll see how many I can get.
