the Ultimate Blog Party has become the must-attend virtual party for mom bloggers across the world. Running from April 1st until April 8th, thousands of bloggers take part and get a chance to win over 200 free prizes that have been donated by companies and bloggers.

Once registered for the party, people can then make new blogging friends and contacts through Twitter and Facebook, the favorites of the mom blogging community (also known as the ‘momosphere’).

One of the twin sister creators, Janice Croze, explains, “5 Minutes For Mom is one of the largest mom blogs so this is an opportunity to get your blog noticed by a wider audience as well as win great prizes and meet new friends. It’s just like a cocktail party, but you can attend in your pajamas.”

This year, the increased use of Twitter and Facebook has been a huge boost for the Ultimate Blog Party as bloggers can communicate easily at any time of the day using their smartphone, iPad or computer. On Twitter, party tweets include the hashtag “#UBP11” so that other users can find people that are taking part.

At Facebook, the advance of Facebook Groups has enabled the partygoers to have a place to talk to other partygoers without the general noise of Facebook getting in the way of the enjoyment.

“The party has over 2000 bloggers already taking part and listing their blogs so this years total will beat the 2010 total easily. And it is all helped by the generosity of the 200+ prize offerings that range from $25 Amazon gift cards to over $2000 worth of MarketMeSuite licenses”, said Susan Carraretto, the other twin sister behind 5MinutesForMom.com.

And this seems to be a phenomenon online as a quick search in Google for “Ultimate Blog Party 2011” brings up 300,000 results.

But the only way to really understand why online partying has become so popular is to hop online and join in the Ultimate Blog Party at 5 Minutes For Mom. But, be careful, it can be addictive!
