5MinutesForMom.com Ultimate Blog Party Offers A Record $24,000 In Giveaway Prizes
Bellingham, WA, Apr 19, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Mom blogs are becoming famous for product giveaways, and 5MinutesForMom.com - a pioneer of blog giveaways in 2007 - have pulled together over $24,000 worth of giveaway prizes for their weeklong virtual blogging event, the Ultimate Blog Party 2012. The prizes will be awarded to randomly selected party participants.
Over 240 prizes have been donated into the massive prize pool and include everything from personal virtual assistant services to shopping sprees. The prize sponsors range from large corporate brands to small businesses and individual bloggers wanting to gain exposure.
The Ultimate Blog Party's major event sponsor - whose logo and links appear on event posts and pages - is Cottonelle.
This is the sixth annual Ultimate Blog Party and has attracted the largest prize pool ever.
"We're thrilled to bring together so many bloggers and brands to celebrate our love for blogging, have fun and hand out a ton of prizes. At 5MinutesForMom.com we strive to push the community to new levels and we think a weeklong mom blog giveaway event with over $24,000 in prizes must be breaking a record," says Janice Croze, cofounder of 5MinutesForMom.com.
During the week, bloggers add their Website URLs, Facebook Pages, Twitter Handles and Pinterest Profiles to 11 different directory lists hosted at 5 Minutes For Mom. They then visit each other's links to find new followers and grow their online communities.
Throughout the week, Twitter buzzes with the #UBP12 hashtag as partygoers chat and share links there as well as on Facebook. This year the party also branched onto the new social video platform Spreecast for three live interactive video hangouts.
The Ultimate Blog Party 2012 started on Friday, April 13 and runs until Friday, April 20 at midnight Eastern when the prize entry form and link directories will close.
