Ultimate Blog Party

Hey look it’s my very first vlog. Check it out. I did this just for you visitors for the blog party. I mean what’s a party without entertainment right? Anyways if you would like to know about me hop on over to the About Me page. It pretty much sums everything up. I just started this blog 2 months ago. I am pretty proud of myself so far. I know you are too πŸ˜‰

So you want some posts of mine recommended to you. Well I will see what I can do.

  • How about a giveaway for a Starbucks gift card?
  • Then there is my first experience with swimming registration, parents are hard core when it comes to registration for activities.
  • My all time (ya ya I know haven’t been doing this long) favorite post dedicated to my mom – Mom I love you

So there are 3 posts to get you started. But like I said look around while enjoying your drink of choice. This is a party after all. Β Don’t forget I love commenters, followers and subscribers.

Oh yes I forgot.. my prize wishlist.

My top 3

  1. #2 under the International List – Custom WordPress Blog, if this prize is already given out then I would whatever blog design one is available (#10, 5, Β 9, 3, 2 in that order)
  2. #39 under US and Canada Only – $50 paypal tranfer from MomDot (or #35 paypal cash).
  3. #17 under US and Canada Only – $200 Apple Gift Certificate from CmomGo

Others in no particular order all under US and Canada Only would be #4, #14, #25, #53 and #56

    Blog hopping on the UBP and just wanted to drop in and say hello.

  64. Hi there. Stopping by via UBP. Nice to meet you! Now following:)

  65. Stopping by from the UBP hope your having a great day! It’s always nice to meet new friends.


  66. Thanks for visiting the Snail’s Trail! I love your blog!

  67. I just did my first vlog last week and I hated it. What courage you have to do a vlog for UBP. Ive been told by some of the top bloggers to keep doing it so Im getting up my nerve to do another one. Nice to meet you.


    • Totally keep doing it. You get more comfortable as you do more. I have done 4 so far and already notice the difference. I am doing the Monday Mingle every week which is a vlog and you answer questions set out. Have you heard of it? You should try it.
