Monday Mornings: Let's Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009


It's Monday again, and there's a spring in my step because it's that time of year again....no, not just spring, it's 5 Minutes for Mom's mom blogging event of the year, the Ultimate Blog Party 2009! It runs all week, from March 20-27 all over: the blogosphere, Facebook, Twitter (use hashtag #ubp09), and three Real Live Parties in NY, LA and Nashville.

So let's get this party started! Have a wine truffle...


Or some decadent Food For the Gods....

... and let's make some small talk! If you haven't been here before, let me introduce myself: I'm Bonggamom, a Filipino transplant living in Palo Alto, CA with my English husband, Alfie, and my 3 kids: 7-year old Pea, and 5-year old twins Jammy and 3Po. This is my personal blog, where I brag about my kids, rant and rave, pretend to take nice photos, salivate over food, occasionally reveal deep dark secrets and laugh at the craziness of life. I started blogging in April 2006 and grew to enjoy blogging so much that I now blog for 5 sites in total! There's this site, my review and giveaway site Bonggamom Finds, and 3 other sites: Silicon Valley Moms, Filipina Moms, and Being Savvy Silicon Valley.

So why am I joining the Ultimate Blog Party, and why should you? Here are three great reasons:

1) Last year there were over 1,500 blogs linked up to the Ultimate Blog Party, so it's a great way to discover some great blogs. That's what the party is all about! Make it a goal to visit 1, 2, 3 new blogs every day this week, read some of their posts and leave a comment to let them know you've dropped by.

2) With so many blogs listed, it's also a great way to get your own blog noticed. I got lots of new visitors to my little corner of the blogosphere when I joined last year's Ultimate Blog Party . Of course the giveaway I hosted may have had something to do with it. Don't worry, I've got something to give away this year as well -- Catfeats, a fun family game that you can play with your cat! I'm hosting my Ultimate Blog Party giveaway over at Bonggamom Finds, just comment to enter!

3) Did I mention prizes? Yes, there are more prizes to be won -- and all you have to do to enter is post about the party and the prizes you want to win on your own blog. I listed down the prizes I really want to win over on Bonggamom Finds; with over 275 prizes, you'll have no problem making a long list of your own. Many of the participating blogs are also hosting giveaways on their own sites, Yours Truly included! Just click here to go to Bonggamom Finds and enter to win Catfeats, a fun family game you play with your cat!.

So there you have it. Have a Happy Monday, all. Now go put on your own sexy stilettos and join the party -- start with my giveaway party post over at Bonggamom Finds. And don't forget to leave a link to your own Monday Morning or Ultimate Blog Party post so I can visit!

Blog hopping during the Ultimate Blog Party and stumbled upon your party here. Yummy truffles! I'm sure I've been to your blog before... and I'm sure I'll stop by again soon.

Maybe we'll meet in person some day, out and about in Silicon Valley!

Take care!
Gail... a fellow BonggaMom, sometimes :)
