2011 Ultimate Blog Party - I'm late!

It’s here; it’s really here! I can’t believe it is time for The Ultimate Blog Party again. So much so, that I completely almost forgot (whoops!) If you are stopping by from the party, welcome!

I started Cultivating Rosebuds a little over a year ago as a way to maintain my sanity. I love being able to sit down at the computer and pour my heart out or relate a cute or funny story about my Rosebuds, Miss H (4) and Lil’ B (20 months.) My husband even pops in once in awhile to write about life with three women in the house.

What I love most about blogging is connecting with other mothers. I love being able to read a blog, nodding my head the whole time in agreement, the “I’ve been there” agreement. I’ve made friends all over the country through blogging, and that is why I am so excited about the Ultimate Blog Party.

With my blog, I am all about making connections and having a conversation. If you leave a comment for me, I try to respond back to you via email. (Is your email part of your google profile? No? It should be!) If you follow me on Twitter, talk to me and I will follow you back. A very wise blogging friend of mine once said that Blogging friends are made from reading blogs, but those friendships are developed on Twitter. (Not on twitter yet? You should be!)

So, I’m off to check out some of the other partiers through the Linky List at 5 Minutes for Mom. Leave me a comment and I’ll be sure to stop by your blog, too! Happy Partying!!

Hi Erin! My name is Erin too, and I have two girls. Mine are a bit older (7 and 5). It's great to find you via the UBP, and I'm heading over to Twitter to follow you there. What you said about Twitter is so true...I have made some amazing friends through it! Have a great weekend!
