Ultimate Blog Party 2008

5m4m_ubp_140x260.gifHi there, come on in.  Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2008 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.  Would you like some tea or coffee?  Tell us a little about yourselves, please.

Ivy and I would like to welcome you to Home Ec 101: What you wish your mama taught you.   We are building a resource for all things domestic.  We run the site like an advice column, but include tons of recipes, articles, tutorials, and as a bonus we even occasionally toss in some motivation all served with our retro charm and wit.

Join me for a quick tour.  If you look at the top menu you will see links for our main categories.  The search bar at the top of our right sidebar is perfect for when you need an answer in a hurry.  Unlike Google, you must be careful to spell your search term correctly.

Just below our search is our chore chart.  Each day you’ll find an area of focus and a quick ten minute fix.

Next is our aggregator.   This is where you can find the freshest posts in the frugal, DIY, and homemaking community.  We have over fifty bloggers participating and are inviting more all the time.  (If you believe your blog may be a good fit, drop us a line at helpme@home-ec101.com).

There you are, how was the grand tour?  We hope you’ll come back and see us soon, the door is open, the coffee is hot, and the snark is free.

    Hey guys! I’ve been a reader for a while now, but I’m not sure I’ve ever commented. Thanks for the information and inspiration you provide!

    Enjoy the party!

    Fun blog! I like your ideas – it’s probably a good one for me to add to my blog’s sidebar. Thanks for hosting the party! I never say no to coffee.

    Chocolatechic –

    Happy to oblige.

    Sweet or unsweet? And that is a trick question.

    Thanks for the free snark. I don’t have enough here at home, and am always on the lookout for more.

    I’ll take some tea please.
