The BritMums Live 2013 Bloggers’ Keynote lineup

microphone1BritMums Live is all about you, the blogger. That’s why we end the event with the Bloggers’ Keynote: posts that we think really show off this wonderfully eclectic, supportive and creative community.

We literally had hundreds of nominations this year, and we wish we could have picked every single one of them.

This year’s posts are a combination of serious, thoughtful, poignant, and downright hilarious.

Bloggers will read the post in their own voice. It’s a powerful session, not to be missed. It starts at 17:10 on Saturday June 22, immediately after Emma Freud’s keynote. The wonderful Katy Hill will introduce the session.

So without further ado, in order of appearance…

    I am so pleased to have been chosen – thank you very much! Now I am dead, dead nervous. Now I need to get practicing. X.

  2. I am thrilled to see this list – and won’t be making the same mistake I made last year of missing it. It’s going to be the highlight. 🙂

      I’ve needed tissues at this session both years that I have attended – major style.
      I think they should put a sponsored box on every table.
