So You Think You’re A Blogger Now?

Never one for half measures I have hit this blogging lark like a bull at a gate. Blog for 30 days straight? Yep, done it.

Sign up to attend a Blogging Training Conference? Yep, done it.

What? You’ve done what?

Yes, dear friends I have signed up for a blogging conference. Full of experienced bloggers and social media experts.

And me.

Shit! Panic is already setting in with exactly one week to go.

To calm my nerves I have started to get organised.

I tracked down potential attendees to stalk chat to. Yes Carli, Michaela, Nathalie and Lisa, you all made the list.

Next, a professional looking notebook in which to jot down all the top tips I’ll be learning.

(I went with my birthday present from Boy Wonder.)

Lots of people will be attending from twitter land, but how will people find me, when on twitter I look like this?

I could leave the mo to grow out naturally, but instead have opted for these.

(I have included a sharpie in case I get too sweaty and the glue dissolves.)

Now all I need to focus on now is not being an idiot, not being inappropriate, not getting drunk and falling asleep.


Do you get nervous before big events? What are your coping strategies?

  1. Gorgeous work! I’ll try to remember my stick on nasal wax moustaches too.

    I was nervous before Blogopolis this year. Worried about being drunk or inappropriate? Carls and I invented a new type of porn at the last blogging event. You have nothing to worry about!

    Ps see you there!


  2. lol love this. I am only new to this blogging business. I look at those events and think I can’t afford that, no way. I’m not a real blogger to justify going to one of those. I think I will be packing myself when I eventually decide to get to such an event. From a new reader – School of Mum via FYBF!

  3. Proud of you! And envious! I so want to go to a blog conference… It will come. Be patient Vicky. And I did just win the human brochure thing … Have a blast.

  4. I’m on the look out for you *insert evil cackle*
    And hey! You’re here! You linked up on FYBF!!! High FIVE!! (See, wasn’t so hard, was it ???) xxx

  5. I hope you enjoy your first blogging conference. I usually try and do at least 1 a year in Melbourne (and one in Sydney if I am organise it). Current plans are for DP2013.

    One tip I will give you is business cards for your blog. I didn’t do it the first time and that was a mistake. They make it a heap easier to give details on your blog quickly to a number of people. You can also do it cheaply (but I am not sure with the timeframe if you can get the free ones)
