The Ultimate Blog Party is Here:

(I’ve been a fan of Janice and Susan since 2006 when I first started blogging, and I’ve been so excited to watch their sites grow over the years. They are brilliant, savvy women. No one does sites for women better than them.)

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

Welcome! I hope that you will enjoy your visit and return to MMM often.

I’m always late to the party (actually, last year I managed to be the very first person on the UBP Mr. Linky. But that was an exception), so let me just jump right in with my intro:

I am Karla, the founder of Modern Media Mom. I’ve been blogging at my (neglected) personal blog, Looking Towards Heaven, since March of 2006. I love blogging. Recently, my other sites: Fruition Designs (where I sell Mommy Cards, stationery and Blog Design) and Modern Media Mom have nudged out a lot of my personal blogging time, but I’m trying to find more balance with it all.

My mission here at Modern Media Mom is to help you sort through the technical talk so that you can actually use the internet and technology to make your life easier.

Peek around. Hang out! You are sure to find useful and helpful information here.

I also have the latest headlines in technology that are relevant to you.

I’d love it if you’d subscribe (see that bright orange RSS button in the upper right corner? You can subscribe via feedreader or email) and spread the word.

You can also follow Modern Media Mom on Twitter.

If you have a blog or a mom-business, be sure to join in the fun at 5 Minutes for Mom!

PS: Enter UBP09 on your Blog Design order form, and you’ll get 10% off the Completely Custom package, 15% off the CompletelyUnique package and 20% off Completely You package, from now until March 30th.

  7. Stopping in from the UBP! I just totally changed the look of my blog after visiting all the great looking blogs at the party–mine started to look way too plain. If I ever decide to get really inspired for a total custom design I’ll look you up.

  9. Just stopping by from the Ultimate Blog Party! Very nice to meet you. I have bookmarked your blog.

    Be sure and Stop by my blog for a visit. Though I am relativity new to blogging, I am loving all my new friends. I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
    I own a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years. From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use. I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size. I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others. I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!

  11. Boy am I glad I found you. I am a brand new blogger joining in on the party that I stumbled upon. I sure have no idea what I am doing. I look forward to following this blog and may make a trip over to your others. Thanks so much for being here. I can’t wait to learn more here.
