I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015
Blog: Stopping At Two
Twitter ID: @karenjwhitlock
Hair: Naturally brown or un-naturally red
Eyes: Two. Both green.
Is this your first blogging conference?: No, BlogFest was my first and also went to BlogOnCymru
Are you attending both days?: Yes, although I have work in the morning (I’m a part-time teacher) so will be arriving a bit late on the Friday
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015?: Meeting other bloggers, those that I have already met and some that I haven’t. Can’t wait to see Sarah from Extraordinary Chaos as we were both shortlisted for BiBs in the Family Category, (neither of us have made the final five) and I couldn’t have been up against a lovelier person. Can’t wait to give her a huge squeeze. Katie from Life on Vista Street is also getting a huge squeeze even though we haven’t met, but with our love of cake, gin and IKEA pencils I know we are going to get on really well. Looking forward to seeing Katie from Mami2FiveBlog who is my #SummerDays co-host and my room buddy for the weekend. Also want to meet Fiona from Coombe Mill. Joining in with her #CountryKids linky has really inspired me and kept me blogging.
What are you wearing?: I have got a bit stressed about this. As I said, I have work first thing, so need something to wear to work, travel to London in and arrive at BritMums Live without looking too bedraggled. Got some navy linen trousers and top from Next and some lovely comfy pumps from Hotter. I won’t look glam, but I will be comfy. And if I am comfy, then I will have fun!
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015?: New blogging friends more than anything else. I love the way that blogging connects you with so many people that you would never normally have met. I also feel like a total amateur when it comes to blogging so excited to learn as much as possible to enable me to improve my blog.
Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?: I’ve not been to BritMums Live, but with any blogging conference I think you need to make the effort to introduce yourself to people. If you want any opportunity, you can’t expect it to come to you.
