Party Post

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

My name is Maria , I have 3 kids (2 boys ,1 girl) and a wonderful hubby :D
Last year , My husband's business went down in dumps, due to a careless business partner and disloyal company agreements

we were surviving very poorly , Things were so rough, I had seen days with empty pockets,I have 3 kids,I new I had to step up and do something to support my family so,... I was looking for a way to work from home when I discovered Zazzle, I always loved designing offline and online,art has been in my heart since I was a kid , So I started designing ,online and offline, opened up stores, but waited for sales, I saw a group of people promoting each other I felt left out I thought again I have to do something, so I started learning about marketing and blogs helped me loads, I am forever in debt to bloggers,

I started blogging, tweeting , FB to promote my business but pretty soon it became personal and I met so many wonderful people along the way,In all this hectic life with kids, stores, home... I need some "me" time , even if it were just 5minutes, thats where 5minutesformom came in, I love the fact I can connect with so many moms, all working some online some offline, some at pay jobs and some at the toughest job in the world "being a mom" ,goes 24/7

Last night I discovered the awesome rocking party at twitter #ubp10 hosted by 5minutesformom Thanks to Susan and Janice for creating this wonderful platform and providing us ways to connect to each other
here is my blog

I realized the way I wanted a helping hand, someone to help me promote my work, unconditionally ,someone also needs my help for promotion ,that led to my creating another blog where I promote other artists work,unconditionally and discover amazing new artists every day here's the promotional blog

Hi there, stopping by from UBP10. I love that you found the help you needed by first helping others. I love doing handcrafts etc., but I sooooo want to know how to design backgrounds, blog themes, etc. I get the programming side of it...just want to know what software is best for doing the design side!

I agree with a previous commenter about some UBP10 banners/logos.

Maybe next year you can do some collaboration with 5M4M and do some logo'd items for UBP11! I think that would be cool.
