The 2010 Ultimate Blog Party has started and like many things, I am jumping in at the last minute, and excited to have found out about it!
This is my first time participating!
What I found out is that you do not have to be a blogger to be part of the party, you can be a newbie or a veteran bloggy mom, and that there are loads of prizes that you can win!
Here are my top prize picks:
# 49 – $25 gift card to Starbucks
(What can I say...I love my lattes with one pump of vanilla and a hint of cinnamon!)
Any of the Target or Etsy gift cards
# 18 – Goodie Basket for Mom
# 37 – $20 Visa Gift Card
I am still getting the hang of blogging, so this should be an interesting experience!
Am looking forward to meeting new bloggy moms, especially those of you who are homeschooling using the Montessori Method, or embrace the ideas of Reggio Emilia's Hundred Languages of Children, art projects and block play, or other hands on method, or have a Montessori inspired classroom or home.
Here’s what 5 Minutes for Mom says about the party:
“The Ultimate Blog Party has become an exciting tradition in the “Momosphere”.
It is a bloggy carnival where participating bloggers publish a “party post” introducing themselves and then party hop through the linky lists meeting other bloggers.”
There will be a ton of blogs linking up and lots of great prizes, simply click on the Ultimate Blog Party banner to join in the fun! (You don't have to have a blog to visit all the great sites!)
Check out 5 Minutes for Mom for details.
If you are reading this and have visited my blog prior to this post, you will already know what the blog is about, but for purposes of this blog party, we are supposed to post as if it is everyone's first time coming and that we are to introduce ourselves...
So who am I and what can you find on my blog?
My name is Colleen and my blog, Sunrise Learning Lab, is a homeschooling blog that details our day-to-day lives living and learning in the Sunshine State.
My blog is full of resources, free printables, random thoughts related to homeschooling, using the Montessori Method and other hands on methods, and mommyhood.
Sunrise Learning Lab is a very family friendly blog.
I occasionally may mention something related to faith or to Christianity, but I hold the belief that our family's spiritual and religious journey is a private, personal one, so I choose to not mention too much about our faith on our blog...we are very open and respectful of other people's religions and tend to embrace the notion that everyone is on their own personal journey...
Each and every person's spiritual journey is a very personal experience and I am not untitled to judge or comment on, as we are all on our own own paths in life.
Please be sure to visit my sidebar for lots of other great Montessori inspired blogs, homeschooling blogs, mommy blogs, and websites.
I'm also offering a neat Earth Day prize package as a prize to a very lucky winner for the blog party!
The prize pack includes some neat Earth Day items, as well as some downloads for Earth Day to use with your family or classroom.
To enter, please tell me that you would like to win the Earth Day Prize Pack and please list your blog URL and / or your email so that I can contact you if you win.
