Right well as I was cruelly kept away from all the other blog conferences this year due to pregnancy and illness, I, Alice Baillie, have decided to brave the unknown and go to the Mumsnet Blogfest in November!! Get me!
OK so it's not that brave, I hear you say, but for a girl who a few weeks ago couldn't even walk THIS is like heaven. It's freedom! It's normality! It's..... got NO CHILDREN involved!!! Amazing.
My lovely sister has even agreed to put me up in the fabulous Hampstead that night too so I don't even have to get home! I'm not supposed to drink as I'm on Warfarin... but I intend to have a few 'nerve calmer' type drinks, which is technically medically needed for nerves, so surely it is classed as medication.... yeah I'm going with that!!
So for those of you who don't know me this is my meme input.... Come and say HI on the day if you see me! xx
Q: What’s your blog title/URL and how long have you been blogging?
A: I have been blogging as My Life, My Son, My Way since May 2011.
Q: Will Mumsnet Blogfest be your First blogging conference?
A: No, I went to Cybermummy last year but sadly due to pregnancy and a DVT I couldn't attend any this year... making this one special!
Q: Did you bag yourself a sponsor?
A: No but always open for offers... wink wink
Q: What are you most looking forward to about the conference?
A: Well a bit of freedom without the kids would be nice but also I like the idea of meeting new people and learning how to take my blog to the next level and what I'm doing right and wrong.
Q: What is your planed style for this event?
A:Jesus I've not even thought about it.... But I'm pretty sure the theme will be... Whatever fits!!
Q: What do u hope to walk away having gained from the conference?
A: A bit of a blogging boost, some new friends and contacts!... and maybe some sort of hazy glare which is alcohol fuelled would be good.
Q: What speakers are you most looking forward to listening to?
A: I've not made my mind up yet but I intend to research them a little until my mind is made up for me.
Q: What workshops will you be attending?
A: Again I haven't fully decided but I know the Social media & Getting published jump out the most at the moment.
Q: Will you be looking for after party drinks?
A:I'm staying at my sister's house in Hampstead so unless she decides we are going out... I'm IN!
Q: Are u worried about not knowing anyone or being confident and socialising on the day?
A:Yes! I've not spotted many people I know going yet... although I've not really looked too hard so it will no doubt turn out at least 1 person I've met before is going.... I hope! Please tweet me if you are reading this... *desperate tone to voice*
Q: What are you most likely to be found doing whilst attending Blogfest 2012?
A: standing awkwardly in a corner until someone gives me a drink... after that god knows I become a little sociable so more than likely I'll be bending a few people's ears off.... not literally I'm not violent!
Q: How will you recognise me on the day?
A: I am 6ft and blonde... it is hard to miss me. I don't think I'll need a name badge but I may make one just because I think it's a good look. I have no idea what I am going to be wearing but it will include leggings as I can't get trousers over my one fat leg... other one is fine! OH WAIT this will be how you can spot me I'll be the one with the tree trunk left leg! Brilliant I knew that DVT would come in handy for something!!
My Twitter is @Baillie_MyLife add me if you haven't got me already.
Apologies for the random picture it is probably the only one I've had taken since having Rocky... I look rough 99.5% of the time so I hide.... I will make an effort for you lot though, I promise. I might even get dressed.....
