May '09: Ultimate Blog Carnival & 31 Days Birthday Bash

There are two major bloggy events happening in May that I want you all to know about!


The first is the Ultimate Blog Carnival (May 4th thru May 8th), which will be hosted by Jacqueline of Blessings Abound on . Since the original quarterly Bloggy Giveaway Carnival has been discontinued, Jacqueline has come to the rescue for bloggers like me who had sponsors lined up for the event already. Thanks to her, I won't have to disappoint my wonderful sponsors. Please visit for details about how to participate.

The second is a month-long event called "31 Bloggers in 31 Days" hosted by the mom blog It is Trisha of MomDot's 31st birthday at the end of May, so she thought it would be fun to have 31 days of giveaways. There will be 31 blogs participating, each hosting a giveaway on their assigned days. It's going to be tons of fun! Visit to learn more or to grab one of the many event buttons available.

If you have room on your sidebars or need something to blog about, I'm sure both these ladies (who put a ton of work into these events btw) would appreciate it if you helped to spread the word on your blogs by writing about them or posting their buttons.
