Or maybe not…
So far this morning I’ve turned linen into a shift, and now wool into a kirtle.
Yes, that’s a kirtle. Bit like a pinafore dress. It’s not finished yet, but it’s a lot closer than it was a hour ago!
I think it’s safe to say I’m not completely caught up in the hype…but I am a bit excited. This is my day out, meeting lots of ppl I chat with on twitter, whose blogs I read and admire. They are my main focus, though yes, I’ll talk to lots of prs as well.
I’m going to offer a word of warning at this point. If you’ve never been to anything like this, you’re going to be rather blown away by the goodies and the excitement and the competitions. But you might want to remember what you blog for. If it’s for goodies, excellent, full stream ahead. But if you have other focuses, then go steady. Don’t do what I did last year and say yes to everyone about everything. You won’t manage to do everything you want to, and you’ll be embarrassed.
Case in point, some months after cybermummy last year I was sent a Kodak playsport video camera to review. You can search my archives, there’s nothing there 🙁 not because it’s a bad product, far from it, it’s fantastic. It does everything they claim for it, it’s so easy to use that Smallest takes pics and vids, the quality is fantastic, it’s water right and survives the sea and swimming pools, and the only problem with it is me.
I just haven’t worked out how to manage videos online. I’m a geek who doesn’t do visuals, and I hereby grovel to the lovely Kodak ppl, and hope to do better in future.
So that’s my cautionary tale. Don’t overcommit yourself. You are only human. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a kirtle to put boning in…
