Is this your first blogging conference?

Second, I’m including BlogCamp London as my first.

Are you attending both days?

Oh yes.

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013?

I’ve got four bloggers (Rachel, Sonya, Lucy and Lynn) staying here on the Friday night, so I think I’m most looking forward to heading there on Saturday and meeting with other bloggers locally (Hannah and Beka) so we’re all in one big group where we all know each other. If you’re heading up from the Croydon/Sutton area and want to meet at Clapham Junction or Waterloo just shout.

What are you wearing?

Probably a Uniqlo t-shirt and some jeans.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013?

Confidence, ideas, progression, friends. I’m shy, though you wouldn’t think so, as I don’t shut up. Inside I’m shaking but outside I’m overtalking, usually telling myself to shut up.

Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows

I am one of those people who have been on Top of the Pops and been tapped on the shoulder and asked to stand in a certain place to be moved even further into the background (I can only assume it must be down to my natural beauty clashing with Jayne Middlemiss or Kate Thornton – I can’t remember who the presenter was). You can see me dance when Cast play ‘Beat Mama’ which fortunately seems to have disappeared from YouTube.
