I'm going to BritMums Live! (2015)

So.... I got my tickets to the BritMums Live ages ago. Apparently it is de rigour in the mummy blogging spheres - and it looked really fabulous event to attend too so I was sold early on. Now however I am feeling slightly apprehensive. Two day conference, where I don't know anyone. Please come and say hi to me!


Name: Sanna
Blog: Wave to Mummy (check my About me and my blog page for more information)
Twitter ID:@wavetomummy
Height: 170cm which is about 5'7.
Hair: Honey blonde says the bottle (it is sort of light golden brown).
Eyes: Hazel




Is this your first blogging conference? No, last year I went to Mumsnet Blogfest, which was fab but at the same time a bit lonely as I knew no one, and hadn't been blogging for long so didn't really recognise many people either. I did enjoy it for the learning it provided, and wrote about my thoughts about the Mumsnet Blogfest as a newbie. I learned a lot through it as well, and was quite taken by the business aspect of blogging too. After the conference I also wrote about what I learned about making money with your mummy blog - this is still one of the most popular posts on my blog (go read it!). 


Are you attending both days? Yes, of course, bit silly not to. But I am not sure if I will make a full day out of it, depends how fun and social it will be.



What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015? I am really looking forward to some of the learning sessions - I will probably go for the creative and business options, but I haven't made my mind yet. To be honest, I haven't really had the chance to have a good look at the line-up yet as I have been really busy, but once I heard that Ella from Deliciously Ella was coming and doing a keynote, I was pretty excited. I've actually never read her blog, but bought her book very recently and it is very good!

Oh, and I am also looking forward to the craft corners - hopefully I will finally learn how to crochet and can start crocheting one those millions of amigurumis I've saved on my Pinterest files...


What are you wearing? Most likely a maxi dress. They are just about the most comfortable things I know! I was thinking that on Friday I would probably have to wear office attire (as I'll go to work in the morning), but luckily we do casual Fridays, so a maxi dress it is.



What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015? New friends hopefully. Some learning and a day and a half of a good time.


Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before? This would be my first time at BritMums Live, but based on Blogfest I would say wear comfortable shoes and bring your notepad and phone charger, smile and chat to people (obviously me if you see me!), and try to have a good time and learn loads. 




So yeah, I am looking forward to it. Hopefully it will be fun, and if you see me, I am super friendly and won't bite if you say hi. I will definitely say hi back :)
