I’m Going to BritMums Live


I’m excited to announce that I am attending my first UK blogging conference in June – BritMums Live! I’ve been blogging here at The 21st Century Housewife for ten years, and although I’ve been to several conferences abroad, this is my first home conference. I can’t wait.

I’ve prepared this post for the BritMums live linky to introduce myself to my fellow attendees.

The 21st Century Housewife 2013

My name is April Harris and I’ve been writing about food, family, travel, fashion and lifestyle here at The 21st Century Housewife for ten years. Originally started to encourage fellow housewives, The 21st Century Housewife has evolved into a lifestyle website covering a little bit of everything with lots of emphasis on food, travel, home and garden. You can read a bit more about the history of the site here.

Is this your first blogging conference?
No, I have been to three in the US, but never to one in the UK.

Are you attending both days?
Yes I am, and I’m really looking forward to it!

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013?
Meeting all the BritMums members, networking, learning, connecting with brands and having fun!

What are you wearing?
Comfy but stylish clothes and flat shoes!

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013?
I’ve been blogging for ten years but so far have mostly connected with bloggers in the US and Canada. I’m really enjoying meeting and connecting with more UK bloggers recently and I’m hoping to do even more of that. I also want to connect with UK brands in order to further monetize my blog plus I’m looking forward to learning lots of new things!

Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows
I was born and raised in Canada and immigrated to England by myself when I was in my very early twenties. I’m a citizen of both the United Kingdom and Canada. I’m proud to be a citizen of two such wonderful countries, but I think of myself as British most of the time as I’ve lived here more than half my life πŸ™‚

Look forward to seeing you all there πŸ™‚
