Ultimate Blog Party ’09

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

As you may know, I’m very active in the Mom It Forward #gno Tuesday Night Twitter Parties (I’ve posted about it here before). Every Tuesday Night a large group of twitterers (Twits?) meet on twitter and discuss a predetermined topic while hashing our tweets with the hashtag #gno. These twitter parties are the brain child of the very talented Jyl and Carissa from Mom It Forward and are VERY fun! We’ve discussed things like promoting your blog, pitching PR reps, green living, random acts of kindness etc. I thoroughly enjoy the twitter parties even though they are rather hard to keep up with (I recommend Tweet Grid, Twitter Search or if you’re into downloading applications to your computer then Tweet Deck). The parties are great for meeting new friends, learning things and growing your blog community.

This week, Mom It Forward is teaming up with 5 Minutes for Mom for their annual Ultimate Blog Party! Tonight we’ll be discussing everything related to blogging and will also be discovering new blogs. Please consider joining us if you’re free tonight after the kiddos head to bed!


If you’re here from the Mom It Forward #gno twitter party, then welcome! I’m Janice aka @momontherun, the author of and founder of The Big List of Giveaways.

motrAD My Mom On The Run blog is about me, Janice, a wife, mother, employee, runner, softball player, internet addict and a completely obsessed New Kids On The Block fan.  I write about anything that pops into my head – one day it’ll be about my kids, pooping, farting and potty training, to providing great advice about growing your blog.

I’ve also just recently launched The Big List of Giveaways  – The ultimate listing service for bloggy contests and giveaways. I promote blog contests from all over the blogosphere. My listings are free to bloggers and are a great way to find all the best contests!

  1. I’m tweeting & blog hopping tonight and I found you through #GNO. I must say I love your blog AND I too am an obsessed NKOTB fan. Had a blast when they performed here back in October.

    Hope you get a chance to hop over to my blog when you have a moment. Oh, if you do, you might also be interested in checking out my blog giveaway for a DVD&CD of “It’s Hip Hop Baby!” The little kids love it.
