IT"S A PARTY!!!!!!!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Come one, come all!!  Join the bloggy party out in bloggy world with all of our bloggy friends!!

I've never participated in a Blog Party before.  I have recently been trying to figure out how to get more traffic to my blog.  I got an email from one of the wonderful blogs I follow, We Are That Family and she was talking about a blog party going on at the blog, 5 Minutes for Mom.  I decided to join the party!!  Nothing like a great party to get you going on a Monday.

First of all, thank you for visiting my blog.  I am a mother of 3 lovely children, 2 step-children and 4 grandchildren.  We have a blended family and I commonly refer to it as "The Conner Chaos".  Our lives are no different from anyone else's that I am reading about out here in bloggy world.  We are busy, have school activities, work full-time outside the home, church activities and somehow manage to find time to eat, sleep and clean the house (sometimes)....ha!  It's a wonder we are all sane at my home.

I started this blog two years ago with the intent of keeping family up to date with what was going on in our "chaotic" life.  It quickly turned into me becoming EXTREMELY addicted to following other blogs and finding friends out in this big 'ole world.  I have since accumulated a FEW followers and so desire to have more.  I feel like I follow a million blogs but can't seem to get followers myself.  Oh well, I'll do what I gotta do!!

I love to read, sing, play games, watch tv, scrapbook, read blogs, take pictures, fellowship with my friends and attend church. 

My two boys playing in the last snow of the season in Oklahoma (mid-March).

My lovely, sometimes with an attitude, daughter.

Hubby and I with one of the grandkids.  Isn't she a doll??

I was completely overwhelmed looking at all of the prizes being offered at this PARTAY!!  I don't know that I could narrow it down to just a few that I would want.  I'm a pretty content person and would be happy with anything.

Can't wait to stalk visit some of the other blogs that are a part of this party.  Get your button up on your blog and post something about this party to introduce yourself to everyone!!  Come on, join in!

Hi Tamara, dropping in from UBP. I really understand where you are coming from with not having any followers, keep wondering what I'm doing wrong. Hmmm...

Anyway, glad to meet you and hope you meet lots of other great bloggers at this party! Stop by and say hi when you get the chance!

Hi Tamara, so glad you joined the Party! I've followed you for awhile now and love your blog. I think the most important thing about getting others to follow you is to comment on those blogs that you do follow. Comment Love is so important! Blessings!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Isn't it refreshing to know you're not the only one in a chaotic world after reading other blogs?! I know I am!

Christianne @ Little Page Turners said...

Isn't blogging addictive? I'm not sure any of my friends (and especially my hubby!) understand. Parties are definitely the way to get traffic. Thanks for dropping by!

Hi there, stopping by from UBP. Thanks for sharing about the "Connor chaos," it kinda puts my own chaos in perspective.
