Ultimate Blog Party 2014: Win Prizes, Make Blog Pals

This is my first year participating in the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. For eight years now hundreds of bloggers have gotten together for this week-long blog hop, commenting and tweeting blitz. You can jump in on the Twitter action using hashtag #UBP14.

Did I mention there were prizes? If there is a Big Green Egg Grill up for grabs, pick me, pick me! More than anything, I hope to discover lots of cool blogs and bloggers. Speaking of cool bloggers

I’m Nicole Robinson, freelance writer, mom of two little ones, and wife to one. I started this blog because thinking about how to put my kids through college gave me hives. I don’t think I’m alone here.

I decided I didn’t want to be afraid of college anymore.

I’m on a mission to improve my kid’s college future, whether or not I can cover tuition. I’m no college planner. But I’m great at talking to college pros to dig up the information that college-bound families need.

Whether your child is 5, 10 or 15 years old, I hope you’ll join with me in conquering the college sneak up. Go ahead, sign up. I dare you.

College Sneak Up [col·lege \ˈsnēk\ \ˈəp\] (verb) college admissions and college tuition advances stealthily and unnoticed upon families who think they have all the time in the world.

That’s enough about me. I want to know about you. Are you partying with #UBP14? There is still time to sign up at 5 Minutes for Mom. Remember to follow along on Twitter using hashtag #UBP14. And of course, show lots of love to Ultimate Blog Party hosts Susan and Janice @5minutesformom.
