Linky: I’m going to BritMums Live 2014!

BritMums liveReady, steady GO!

It’s BritMums Live season again, most of the tickets are sold so if you’re still ‘thinking about it’ you’d best be quick or you’ll miss out on the Greatest Blogging Event of the year. BritMums Live runs over two days and brings together bloggers from all over the UK. A two-day social media conference and blogger event where bloggers and social influencers meet, socialise, network with brands, improve their skills and fire their creativity

Last year saw 500+ people come together and share two days of immense fun and one of the nicest ways to approach this event, especially for first timers, is to introduce yourselves, this way you can find new contacts, someone to say hello to before you’ve even stepped inside The Brewery.

We know from experience that for some people an event as enormous as ours can be quite overwhelming, we want to reassure you that we’re going to be doing everything we can to ensure you have the best time ever and feel welcomed into the fold, we want everyone to have a great time.

If you’d like to mingle before we’ve flung open the doors, have a go at copying and pasting the meme below onto your blog and try to visit the bloggers who link up below, arrange to meet them by the coffee and biscuits, or by the wine and beer at the fabulous BiBs ceremony on Friday evening.

I look forward to ‘meeting’ you all over the next couple of months, in the meantime here’s me

Is this your first blogging conference?

No, it will be my 5th

Are you attending both days?

Most definitely and you’ll find me looking after the speakers in Room 1.

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2014?

I love discovering what’s in the goody bag we get to take home, it’s like a treasure chest that prolongs my BritMums Live experience over the next days whilst I put all my products to good use.

What are you wearing?

I’ll make it my aim to be comfortable at all times, so flat shoes and nothing too restricting.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2014?

For me, BritMums Live is a great way to catch up with some old friends and meet people I’ve been chatting with online but haven’t yet met face to face. Also I am always looking out to improve my blogging skills.

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?

Yes, BritMums Live will be one massive experience that you will feel on all levels, emotional and physical, it normally takes me a few days to come ‘down’ from the high I get from meeting so many creative people and from all the new information I take in in such a short time. My tip would be to take notes of the important tips you pick up, fix a time to meet your favourite bloggers ie. a session or a coffee break or at a certain stand so you don’t miss them and prioritise your experience before arriving. If speaking with the brands is your priority make sure you take time to do that as you most likely won’t be able to fit everything in.

We’re really looking forward to meeting you!
