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:
It’s possible my hair will be a little neater. It’s also possible it won’t be. I will be carrying/wearing/otherwise accompanied by this:
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!
