A couple of weeks ago I announced that I’m attending the new Mumsnet Blogfest conference, as a wordpress expert. I promised a linky, which I did put up, but no one joined.
As I’m sure this was just an oversight, I’m having another go.
It’s my experience of conferences (two cybermummys, a cybher and a blogcamp) that it’s really quite difficult to tie together names, face, blogs and twitter accounts. A way to make this a little bit easier if you’ve got a plan of who is going beforehand and a mental image of them. You can do something towards this by posting a meet and greet post on your blog, and linking it up below.
Some suggestions for your post – a picture:
which may make me easier to spot
I will also have a netbook or tablet with me. (As I haven’t bought a tablet yet, it will probably be a netbook, but I live in hope. If there are any lovely technology companies out there that would like me to review a tablet at a conference, please do let me know!) I’m part of the blog clinic, as an expert in wordpress. If you’ve a particular question you’d like answered on it, or would like me to look at your blog prior to attending, please drop me a link and a comment below
The rest of it? I’m not very tall, about 5’4″. The baby is even smaller I’m absolutely hopeless at names, but I’m likely to remember your twitter id. Mine is @liveotherwise in case you are wondering. I will be wearing clothes – may disclose what nearer the time if I plan ahead, and do my best to be friendly/ approachable.
In previous years I’ve suggested use of a blogger bingo card as I *always* manage to make it to the end of the day and miss someone. This time I may print my own out. Let me know if you should be on it, or my twitter list.
Join the linky!
