I'm going to Britmums Live 2014

22:16 Unknown 0 Comments

I've been blogging for over two and a half years now but Britmums Live 2014 will be my first time at *the* national conference for the parent blogging community. In 2012 I was very pregnant, and sick, and couldn't face the trip. In 2013 I had a nine month old, breastfeeding Little Miss who was too big to take with me but too little to leave behind. I bought my ticket for this year on the day of release last year. I was determined 2014 would be my year to attend!

I'm travelling down with my two blogging besties, my Jens - The Brick Castle and MyMummysPennies and looking forward to spending time with them and other blogger friends over the weekend. Two nights child-free will be strange but very pleasant!


Name: Pippa
Twitter ID@RedRoseMummy
Height: 5'5 1/2" (the half is important)
Hair: Collar bone length, dark brown. I'll need to dye the grey away before then!
Eyes: Dark brown, with glasses.
Is this your first blogging conference? My first Britmums Live, but I've attended BlogFest, Blog On twice, BlogCamp and BlogSummit so I'm fairly experienced.
Are you attending both days? Of course! I'm excited for the whole event, and two nights with the girls in a gorgeous hotel.
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2014? Spending precious time with some of my best blogging friends, celebrating a year with a very special group of them. Representing my fabulous sponsor and, hopefully, time to chat with people I know online face to face for the first time. 

What are you wearing? I'll almost certainly have Fitflops on my feet. Clothing will probably involve a dress or tunic and leggings. 
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2014? I've been to a fair few blogging conferences now so learning something isn't my highest priority, I'm hoping to be inspired by the amazing people I am proud to share this community with.
Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before? Don't be afraid to approach people. Tweet if you want to meet up with people, it was difficult enough to find people I wanted to see at BlogCamp and Britmums Live is about five times bigger! Pack snacks and a bottle of water, and painkillers. Even if you don't need them someone else probably will. Relax and enjoy it... and say hello to me!
