I'm going to #BritMumsLive

If you are a blogger, particularly in the UK, you have probably heard of +BritMums. Every year they run a huge blogging conference in London, over 2 days.......and I am going!!

I have been before, but that doesn't make me any less nervous. Quite frankly, most of us bloggers hide behind our computer screens. Our best friends are people we have never met. 

In preparation for it, Britmums have done a linky, for everyone to join in. A way to introduce ourselves.

Here is mine:


NAME: Jo Henley       

Blog: Ojo's World (ummm, you're on it)

Twitter @: Ojosworld

Height: 5'6" (ish)

Hair: hahahaha, really?! Sort of purple at the moment, likely to change at a moment's notice.

Eyes: 2, both greeny/grey

Is this your 1st Blogging Conference: No, I went to BritMumsLive 2013

Are you attending both days: Yup. I am, in fact, lucky enough to be travelling up the day before, then back the day after. (My mum is sharing a hotel room with me, so she can explore London while I attend the conference).

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums2014: Meeting up with some bloggers that I regularly speak to. Really looking forward to the BiBs! I'm not nominated or anything, just love watching it.

What are you wearing: After learning my lesson last year: something comfortable and cool, that I feel like myself in.

What do you hope to gain: Last year I got a bit flustered and missed out on the sessions I would of found helpful. This year I hope to learn more from these.

Do you have any tips for others that haven't been before: Relax, so many there are as scared as you. Get there a little early, so you can latch on to someone, or look for people arranging coffees closer to the time. Take advantage of the butterflies, Michelle was a real lifesaver for me last year. Finally, don't be afraid to look closely at peoples badges, none of us know what others look like, but we know blog names!

I can't wait to meet up with so many this year. I missed out on too many conversations last year, because I was flustered. This year I am putting on my big girls pants and enjoying myself!

  2. Exciting! The conferences are always daunting. I've not yet got to one because I'm not a butterfly. Well I am among my friends but I'm really shy when I don't know anyone! You'll have a great time though everyone seems to come away inspired and buzzing with enthusiasm.
