141 weeks and 5 days | Mumsnet Blogfest 2015

So this weekend I trundled off down to Kings Cross; to Mumsnet Blogfest 2015! My third — and final — blogging conference for this year. 

Blogfest — run by Mumsnet — is where a number of my blogging buddies had all met for the first time last year but it was my first time.

Unlike Britmums and Blogcamp, early in the year, I felt like it wasn’t such a huge learning curve. Those first couple of conferences were such a huge deal; so much information to take in plus, as a newcomer, it was fairly daunting to walk into a room full of total strangers.

Roll on a few months and I didn’t feel as though I was in a room full of strangers. There were lots of friendly faces — some that I’d met before — some that I’d occasionally spoken to online — but all of the people there were chatty and friendly.

I got to hang out with my blogging besties for the day, hone my craft and mingle and network with some fab brands and some lovely bloggers — what’s not to love about that?!

Here are a few pics of my day.

Highlights included David Baddiel’s Think Bomb session, The Crumbs Sisters chatting about their You Tube  experiences and legendary film director Mike Figgis giving a talk on film-making.

Getting tips from a renowned and established professional is pretty amazing — especially as it was in a fairly intimate setting.

Plus seeing Emma from Brummy Mummy Of 2 win Best Vlogger was a highlight too. It was fab to see someone who is as lovely in real life, as she seems on the internet, be rewarded for all her hard work.

All in all, a fab day.

Such a treat to spend a few hours with some like-minded people who make this blogging malarkey so much fun. Coming to these events definitely gives me a real sense of purpose. It makes me so happy that I fell into this amazing industry!

So lovely to see some of my favourite online friends in real life.

  1. Hi Caro, great to see you had a lovely day! It looks like it was a great day and event. I Hoping to make it up there myself next year. Two years blogging and I’ve still to make my first blogging event. Roll on 2016 :-). Emily #TwinklyTuesday

    • Aah Emily!! I had been blogging for almost 2 and a half years before I went to my first blogging event!! ;) I was SO nervous for that first one but SO glad that I plucked up the courage and went along! xx

  2. Looks fabulous. I love conferences like this as you always come away feeling really uplifted. I have never been to one as a blogger but attended one on a stand several years ago when it was all quite new and was fascinated. I get the whole first time nerves thing. I would be exactly the same but I guess for all of us newbies it’s the next step. Shall miss you hosting #twinklytuesday and thank you Nicky xx

    • Aah they’re SO good aren’t they?! I totally agree that you come away feeling inspired. Attending the conferences is now one of my favourite things as a blogger. I was SO scared, the first one I went to, I so very nearly bottled it and didn’t go!! I’m so, so glad I swallowed my nerves and went along.

      Thanks so much Nicky — that’s so lovely of you — it will be weird not hosting every week! xx
