growing steadily as more of you spread the word and share a post. Thank you! now on our 4th week of this great Google+ party.If you are new to this post and unsure about
what this is, I’ll explain. Every Friday we host The Ultimate Party on
Google Plus – G+ Bloggers and G+ers join the fun. Each week, our G+
Circle grows as more members/attendees join in the fun. Currently, we have over 200 members and we see it growing
further. If you want to
connect with social media gurus and fans and be seen, then Google+ is
key to your engagement; it’s the place to be for hangouts,
parties and networking events. Join us today. It is never too late to participate and share a few posts.
There is also a very important fact to
remember about a Google+ party: Every time someone +1′s, comments, or shares your post, Google ranks that post higher. So come link up for The Ultimate Linky below! Then join in The Ultimate Party on Google+ and participate by using the hashtag #theultimateparty ! Are you joining us today?
As we celebrate our first Google+ party in April, we have two new fabulous co-hosts to help us run things smoothly. Jennifer from Homeschooling Mom 4 Two and Paula from A Storyteller with a Camera are our co-hosts this month.
Our co-hosts help us with the+1′s, comments, and shares for each party, and we are appreciate their contributions. If you’d like to be a co-host for May or any other month, please email Tammy@theultimatelinky(dot)com or contact us on The Ultimate Party page.

Our Party starts at 9:00am EST (Eastern Standard Time) and will wrap at 6:00PM. Let’s
make this special day fun! Share your family-friendly posts and
information that would be helpful to other bloggers and engage! Why
Friday? We chose Fridays because studies have shown superior interaction
on Google+ on Fridays from 11 a.m. – 2 pm and from 7-10 p.m. We pledge
to work hard to interact with posts that link up with the hashtag #theultimateparty on Friday.
The linky will remain open until 6:00 p.m EST. But do feel free
to come back and comment and +1 on the posts until 9:00 pm. Please link
up if you are going to party with us. We’ll also create a Google+ circle

linking up is crucial. We also have a Google+ page called The Ultimate Party where you can receive updates and share in the threads posted on that page if you circle us!
What Is a G+ Party? A G+ Party is a networking event to meet,
connect with people and exchange +1s, and share G+ posts. G+ parties
have one or more Hosts who organize and promote the party. Co-Hosts are
often brought in to help.
Why do we hold a G+ party and on Fridays?
- G+ postings help with SEO optimization.
- It helps our posts get higher ranking in Google’s search engine.
- Friday is supposed to be the best time for interaction on G+,
specifically between 11a.m. – 2 p.m. and 7 – 10 p.m. We now leave the
linky open until 9 p.m. for our offline workers and West Coast bloggers.
Kim will hang out with you in the evening as many of your hosts live
in the EST/CST time zones and might not be available at that time. Please link up as early as possible so that you get the most interaction on your posts.

Kidoodle.TV: TV. Built for Kids, Loved by Parents
This post is brought to you by Kidoodle.TV and BlogHer.
An Invitation to Kidoodle.TV and Our Upcoming Twitter Party: I’m excited to share information about the excellent Kidoodle.TV service built specifically for kids and to invite you to our upcoming Twitter Party! What is Kidoodle.TV? Kidoodle.TV is a safe, ad-free streaming video service that offers the discerning parent many quality shows for their children to watch. They provide a generous list of educational and entertaining programs that can be customized for each kid in the family. Because the selection of videos are in an environment that parents control, kids can watch their pre-selected Kidoodle.TV shows on the go and with minimal supervision.
How It Works: Signing up your child is easy peachy. All a parent needs to do is visit the Kidoodle.TV website and register in their own name and once that is completed, they can help their child create a personalized profile. The website is user-friendly, and the registration process is quick and very easy to do. Once the parent is registered, the next step is to help their child create a profile.
How Do You Create a Profile? Parents can create up to 5 custom kids’ profiles and set time limits using a protected pass-code. The site provides a template that includes; a place to add the child’s name, several themes to help them choose a preferred one, defined age groups to help select the child’s correct age, and a wide range of videos to help parents choose a group of shows/content based on each child’s age. Kids can also choose on a show-by-show basis.
What About Other Features? Another invaluable feature that Kidoodle.TV offers is the ability for parents to easily set viewing time limits. Once the time limit is set, anywhere from 15 minutes to unlimited viewings, Kidoodle.TV automatically enforces the time limit! So not only would kids get to watch educational and entertaining shows, they’d do so in a safe environment and with clear time limits.
What About The Programs? Kidoodle.TV offers a fairly wide selection of safe, popular and unique kids only content, including retro content from our childhood; shows like Jem and the Holograms, and Inspector Gadget are some of the familiar names on the Title Selection list. Once a child is signed up, they will notify the parent as more educational and entertaining content gets added to the list. Currently, Kidoodle.TV is available only to kids in Canada and the United States and it’s a great time to sign your child up and start enjoying the selections. More Below!
