Mumsnet Blogfest 2013 – I’ll be there

‘This weekend will find me in London ….. for Mumsnet Blogfest 2013!

When I booked it, I was excited and nervous, but didn’t have to think too much about it as it was in the distant future ….. now I am nervous and excited and it is on SATURDAY – eeeek!

There is a fantastic line-up of speakers – including comedienne Jo Brand, BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Richard Bacon, and child expert Prof Tanya Byron, as well as lots of expert bloggers to inspire and educate us.

There will be sponsors and companies who GET bloggers and blogging – including Coca-Cola,  Honda, TalkTalk and more

Most importantly there will be BLOGGERS!!! We are a rare-breed, bloggers, we choose to share our hearts and lives online. When we get in to a room full of fellow bloggers, even though we haven’t met before, in no time at all I know we will chatting away – it’s a bloggy thing!

If you are here on my blog for the first time, maybe also planning to be at Blogfest, here is a brief wee bit about me (and a photo in case you spot me!):

If you see me on Saturday PLEASE come and say “hi”, as I don’t know ANYONE going – yet!

While in London planning to fit in some shopping and probably a bit of iPhone photography – so expect lots of pics here on my blog and on Instagram. If you follow me on Twitter, I apologise in advance as I know I will be using the hashtag #blogfest rather a lot in the next few days!

    Looking forward to seeing you there! I am originally from Belfast too, though I live in Brighton now. So you won’t be the only Norn Irn person there.

      We can be terrified together …. Think we will all be in the same boat …. knowing no-one! By the end of the day hopefully we will wonder what we had been so worried about!

    I’m going to be there too! Not as nervous as I thought I’d be (yet!) after I survived the Autumn Fete at Harper Impulse a few weeks ago, but I’m sure I shall be a sweat drenched puddle of nerves and social awkwardness come Saturday morning. The things I’m clinging to is that most of us won’t know anyone else, so everyone is at an equal disadvantage ;-)

      Yes – it seems most of us don’t know anyone, so that makes it easier than when the majority already know each other! Be sure to say “hi” if you spot me!

    I’ve just popped across from Sarah Miles. Sadly I’m not going to Blogfest, so I’m very jealous of you! Hope you have a great time.
