I’ve been blogging since July 2010. Six months after WitWitWoo was born, I dipped my toes into the proverbial social media water and joined Twitter. I say joined … like most people, I’d actually joined two years earlier but just never used it. (“Twitter? Wassat?”)
I’ve learnt a lot on the way … (I refuse to use the word ‘journey.’) I never even knew there was such a thing as a ‘blogging community’ when I started out, let alone one that I would end up being a part of.
But I am. I’m a part of something wonderful. Something unique. And I bloody love it!
And then something great got even greater.
I was asked to be a speaker at BritMums Live next June!
Yep. Me. Kate from Kent.
To say I’m chuffed is an understatement. I’m fricking ecstatic!!
Quite what I’ll talk about, I have no idea yet … but hey, I’ve got seven months to sort the minor details like that out!
The main thing is this. I’m not a professional speaker … and quite frankly, I’m a little … petrified. But I’m so passionate about what I do, about where this old blogging lark is going, and the people I’ve met that I know I’ll do my best.
I hope people come along to listen to whatever I have to say. Doubt you’ll find me at the early morning yoga sessions … but you’ll definitely find me at the bar afterwards!
Tickets for BritMums Live are still at the early bird price of £49.99 for the two day conference, running 22-23 June 2012 – further information can be found HERE.
