Ps - I'm off to my first blogging conference on Saturday, ooh...
Blogtacular looks set to be an immense day of creative magic being spun at The Royal Institution with an inspiring line-up of speakers sharing their wisdom and experiences. I've even managed to land a spot at the pre-event 'Photowalk' with a gaggle of other lovely people but as I'm also going to the Friday night dinner, the likelihood that I'm going to turn up with toothpaste dribbled down whatever-it-is-I-panic-choose-at-5am has increased ten-fold...
At the mo I'm a pick'n'mix of nervous excitement.
A huge bonus is that I take part in Blogtacular's Wednesday weekly Twitter chats and the people I've nattered to all come across as a genuinely down-to-earth, welcoming and friendly bunch. I think we've all exchanged thoughts of worries about 'putting ourselves out there' on the day but that's the beauty of these kind of events..you always hope there will another kin sharing the same nervous energy as you. We're not all the same of course but I'm hoping I manage to drag myself out from behind a chair in the corner and embrace the day.
I've even had some business cards made, which I feel a wee bit of a fraud about because I don't think I have a grasp enough on this blogging lark yet to warrant me self-promoting it with a card. But it looks pretty, so hopefully if I'm brave enough to pass one into someone's paw, they can pretend to like it.
I shall report back on how it all goes, watch this space..
