In 2007, Janice had this crazy idea to start something she called a “blog party”where Mom Bloggers would link up and “party” together in a blog carnival style, visiting each other’s sites and getting to know one another. Almost 1000 bloggers joined in and the annual Ultimate Blog Party was born.
In 2008, the UBP had over 1500 bloggers participating and in 2009, over 2000 bloggers participated, and in 2010 the number passed 2300 bloggers partying with us. In 2011, we had 3,000 partying with us.It just keeps growing.
The Ultimate Blog Party has not only grown in participating blogs (hitting right at 3,000 blogs in 2011), but it has also “grown” in the variety of ways online “partygoers” are connected in real life events — from live personal concerts featuring recording artist Chris Mann to webcast video chats and Twitter parties.Now you know! Link up and get to know some great new blogs and bloggers!
