This time last year, I was pretty new to the blogging scene. Admittedly I’d already been blogging almost a year, but I had only recently discovered just how many bloggers were out there. And what lovely people they are. And how supportive. And entertaining. I’d just started making friends that I hadn’t actually met. I hadn’t believed that was possible before.
When Britmums Live happened last year, I SO wanted to go. But I was a bit too new. I think I would have been out of my depth.
But when those 2013 tickets went on sale, only weeks after the 2012 event, I snapped one up immediately. I wasn’t going to miss out again! This time I’m really ready for it. I ‘know’ far more people now, my blog has grown and I feel like I can hold my head up in public and confidently say ‘I am a blogger’.
I am so excited about it! I’m looking forward to all the sessions, but mainly I just want to meet the people – people I have been communicating with regularly for over a year now. People I consider to be friends.
So who am I?
Well this is me…
Twitter ID: @sarahMo3W
Height: 5ft 6
Hair: Long, brown with a golden tinge. Hopefully no grey – I’ll get my roots done beforehand!
Eyes: Blue with big black glasses
Is this your first blogging conference? No, I went to Tots100 BlogSummit in Bristol earlier this year, but this will be so much bigger!
Are you attending both days? Yes!
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013?
Meeting people! So many people I want to meet, but a special mention must go to Suzanne of 3childrenandit
and Sonya from Rocknrollmum
They are the two people I am really dying to meet!
What are you wearing? This!
I wear 100% Superdry 100% of the time, but somehow I felt I had to make more of an effort and do something a bit different for BritMums Live. So a vest top with a crocodile on it was the obvious choice. I’ll be wearing it with black Superdry jeans and maybe a shirt or hoodie (depending on the weather).
What do you hope to gain from Britmums Live 2013? Some lovely friends and fantastic memories. I’d also like tips on the more technical side of blogging and on more effective ways to reach readers. But I’m a technophobe, so anything useful will most likely go in one ear and out of the other.
Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows: I used to work in McDonalds, despite being a vegetarian.
