Who are the BritMums Butterflies?

We are so pleased to introduce the BritMums Butterflies. Check out their post suggesting the best way to approach the conference, as well as any ‘butterflies’ you may have about attending.


First up, we have Clare Anderson who blogs at Seasider in the City.  She’s in her early thirties, and originally from Blackpool, but now lives in Norwich, hence her blog title.  She loves golf and is a bit of geek, so made up these cute butterfly images for us.  Her introductory post is called ‘Get Your Wings On.’


Next up we have Michelle Garrett.  She blogs at The American Resident and is the one running the #Britmumsbutterflies Twitter list, where you can start or join in conversations with your new friends / fellow delegates.  Originally from Minnesota USA, she has been in Britain over half her life so considers herself American with a twist!  She says Hello and gives us her top tips for attending the conference.


Then we have the other wonderful Michelle – Mich Pannell who blogs at Mummy from the Heart.   She’s ‘near 40,’ from Hertfordshire and is one of the early birds of blogging.  Her very successful and popular linky called #R2BC – ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ has been running for two and a half years years and is just one of the sources of support and sanity she offers like minded parents.  Her post is ‘Here for you.’


Soon, we’ll have from Sophie Muncaster – Super Amazing Mum, Here’s her post I am Butterfly.


Then it’s the turn of Anya from Older Single Mum, who’ll be writing a post for BritMums sharing her experiences of being a newbie at the conference last year and probably (but she’s not promising) making a video post as a sort of loyal follow up to last year’s Nobody is a Nobody one. 

Head Honcho, Gemma will then be telling us all what can be expected from the Butterflies and Penny from Alexander Residence will be rounding everything up, so do stay tuned.

If you can’t wait for all that, you can learn a little bit more about them to further whet your appetite and don’t forget you can join the BritMums Butterflies Facebook Group to team up with other people and make your own agenda for meet ups, as well as your plans for the one at the conference!
