So this time next month I’ll be on a train to London, on my way to my first ever Brit Mums Live Shin-dig.
Fuck me, I’m nervous.
No doubt the neck based worry rash will be starting to make an appearance by this point. And the nervous retching will commence meaning, I’ll probably freak some people out on the tube. But that’s fine, plenty of weirdos in London I’ll fit right in.
Trouble is – I have questions. Ones that aren’t answered in the BritMumsLive FAQ section. Trust me I’ve read it seven times.
It all centres around – how am I supposed to behave when I actually get there?
Like a normal person, Sarah.
Luckily thanks to the genius of the internet I have managed to make some blogging friends over the last year who will (hopefully) sit with me. I’m looking forward to meeting Su from Ethan&Evelyn in person! We have been reading each others blogs for months and she invited me to co-host the #fabfridaypost linky earlier this year which was a great boost to my blogging confidence. She’s also helped me through some technical difficulties and has always supported my writing.
I’m actively harassing Meagan from The Mum Project #stayclassy to come but so far no luck. Feel free to join in and bombard her with Tweets and emails. On the hour, every hour should do it. I don’t know whats wrong with her, its not like she has a five month old baby,a job and studies to contend with…
I also want to apologise in advance to Cash from The ComeBack Mum , because my opening line may well be along the lines of “Oh my god I love you! The whole story about your vagina was amazing and I told my Mum all about it!” .
Yeah. So sorry.
But what about the bloggers that don’t know I know them? The ones I
stalk read, the ones I know the intimate details of their life?
What about them?
Do I say “Hi, I’m Sarah – you have no idea who I am but I read your blog obsessively and truly believe we could soul mates.”
I’m gonna get weird. I just know it.
I’ve got a list. My stalker list. Its not typed or laminated or anything but a lot of you are on it and I
will be trying to find you am so looking forward to meeting you! Sorry in advance, if I hug you inappropriately.
Here’s my answers for the I’m Going To #BML16 linky . I love this idea, its great to read everyone’s posts – if you’re going take a look at this and join in!
My name: Sarah Aslett
My blog: Admissions Of A Working Mother
Find me on social media at: TWITTER FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM
How I look: Dazed/ confused/ nervous/ lost/ tipsy – hopefully reasonably presentable!
Is this my first blogging event? Yes, I have no idea what to expect but I’m really looking forward to it.
I will be wearing…
I have no idea to be honest, I will probably treat myself to something new – hopefully the weather will be nice and sunny by then.
What I hope to gain from #BML16: I want to meet people first and foremost. I also want to learn a bit more on the technical side of things like SEO and Google Analytics.
My tips for a great conference: Don’t get lost, get there on time. If I just manage this I know I’ll have a great day!
