The Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010
It's funny because this blog actually started with the Ultimate Blog Party 2009. I had this blog and found no use for it until I saw the announcement. So my very first post was about this event! And now it's back. YAY!

Firstly, you want to get in on this so click on the graphic and find out how to join. There are tons of prizes you can win. It's also for non-bloggers so everyone has a chance to win.

Secondly, I am supposed to introduce myself. Well here goes. As I said this blog was started a year ago. I started this blog and my personal blog, Carolyn in Carolina, because we moved to a little town in NC and I couldn't find work. So friends suggested I start a blog so I did. When I saw the ultimate blog party 2009, I started this blog. Then slowly but surely, I started adding posts for entries into giveaways and then I started doing reviews and giveaways myself. I love it.

Right now, I am in transition since I got a job and am the Director of Development for a small foundation in Cashiers, NC. I really like my new job but it does cut into my blogging and entering giveaway time. But hopefully, I will be able to continue blogging because I really do enjoy it and it saved me from going nuts last year.

So welcome to my blog. Good luck to everyone and, if you haven't joined in, please do. I guarantee it will be a blast!!

Here are the prizes I would love to win:
39 - a $250 gift certificate to the Hilton Garden Inn and
USC 17 - a $200 gift certificate to the Apple store
USC 39 - $50 Paypal provided from MomDot
#32 - A $25 Target Gift card provided by A Frugal Novice
#52 - A $25 Amazon GC provided by the Product Review Place
#3 - A $50 Target Card provide by Peggy Gorman
