Who is going to BritMums Live?

After work this afternoon, I will be heading off to BritMums Live, the biggest blogging event of the year for parent bloggers. I was desperate to attend in 2014, but Wriggly was only a week old so I followed the event on Twitter. When the tickets went on sale for this year, I must have been the first person to hit ‘buy now!’

Anyone who knows me is aware of my obsession love for jars and it is a real honour to have Home Brands, the makers of Ball Fresh Preserving Products as my sponsor for BritMums Live. We made ice cream yesterday night so I could show off my pretty new jam jar!

Ice Cream in Ball Jar

Name: Mel

Blog: Le Coin de Mel

Twitter ID: @lecoindemel

Height: 1m63

Hair: brown

Eyes: green or grey depending on the weather

Is this your first blogging conference? No

Are you attending both days? Of course!

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015? First and foremost, I am looking forward to catching up with friends and meeting the inspiring people behind the blogs I read and love.

What are you wearing? I will probably be wearing my work outfit when I arrive (late, sniff!), unless I have time to change during my lunch break. I have a nice, comfy dress from Joules for this evening with electric blue heels and pink nails. I have no idea what I will be wearing tomorrow. Am I allowed jeans and a tank top?

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015? The ‘Table Talk’ sessions really appeal to me as they are set in smaller groups with experts in their field. I also hope I will get some tips on what I am meant to do with social media. Oh, and I have no idea about SEO, so if anyone has any idea what it is and what to do with it, let me know! I might not have to wing this blogging thing after BritMums Live!

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before? It is my first time. Please be gentle with me (and if you see me on my own, please speak to me!).

I’m going to BritMums Live

      It was so much fun! I’d never been to an awards ceremony and as I kid of knew someone in each category, there was quite a bit of cheering!

      Meeting you (crazy lady) was one of the highlights of BritMums. Those glitter cards are gorgeous!
      Did you go to the SEO session in the end? What did you think?

        Meeting you (very wholesome) lady was also one of the highlights of my weekend. I didn’t go to the SEO session in the end, so everyone will continue to be unable to find my blog!! xx

          I did, but I am still pretty sure my blog will remain well-hidden for a long, long time (I like to think of it as a hidden treasure).

            It is a treasure for sure, but probably not as hidden as you reckon xx

        I swear I replied to this…! Nope, didn’t go to the SEO session in the end. I’ll just work it out in my own time. Or remain a ‘hidden treasure’… hehe x

          I think you did. Either I replied already or I read your comment and forgot to reply. Don’t ask me to have brain cells: I gave them all to my kids, he he! I did go to the session, but I was lost after slide 2 I think. I don’t think I care enough about statistics and optimising things!

            Yeh same on the brain cells. Do they ever return?

          • Mel
            26/06/2015 / 2:54 pm

            Nope (sorry!). x

      Merci ma belle, je n’ai pas gagné, mais la blogueuse qui a eu le prix le méritait vraiment. Elle ne fait que des recettes (et des bonnes choses en plus!). Moi, je fais un peu de tout et de n’importe quoi sur mon blog, hi hi!

      You’re always so kind to me. I don’t know everyone… I just ten to speak to anyone, whether they like it or not, he he!
