I love attending a good blogging conference and I’m excited that I’m going to BritMums Live 2014. It’s such a great opportunity to meet new people, connect with brands, learn new things and develop as a writer and blogger. Last year I joined over 500 other bloggers at BritMums Live 2013 and it was such a wonderful experience – exciting, fun and scary all at the same time. Let’s face it, it’s pretty intimidating walking into a room full of hundreds of other people you may never have met before. The great thing about BritMums is that almost everyone is super friendly.
The I’m Going to BritMums Live Linky is a great way to get to know a few people before the event. So here’s me:

Twitter ID: @apriljharris

Is this your first blogging conference?
BritMums Live 2014 will be my fifth blogging conference. I’ve attended two BlogHer conferences, one in San Diego and one in New York as well as BlogHer Food in Seattle. I also attended BritMums Live last year.
Will you attend both days?
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live?
The chance to connect with other bloggers as well as with literary agents and brands. I’m also looking forward to learning lots of new things!
What will you be wearing?
Most likely jeans, a blouse and blazer. I like to be comfortable but still look professional. I’ll probably wear shoes with a wedge heel to get a bit of height but still be comfy.
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live?
I’m hoping to meet lots of new people and do some networking. It’s important to me to connect with more British bloggers and brands. I have some wonderful international connections but I’d like to foster a few more at home.
Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?
Try not to be intimated by the crowds and don’t be afraid to say ‘hello’ to people. Everyone is there to connect and most of us are just as nervous as you are! Wear clothes you feel comfortable in, be yourself and – this is really important - don’t forget your business cards.
I look forward to meeting you If you see me, please do come and say hello!
