Hanging out with your target market!

Brit Mums Live!Blogging can be sometimes quite a lonely experience, so it is extremely nice when you can get out to meet other bloggers and find out about what they do. This is especially so if most of the people you talk to either don’t have a blog or don’t use it enough.

Recently I’ve joined up with a blogging coffee morning group in Henley. These are an interesting bunch of ladies, all with different values and reasons for blogging, such as promoting a book they have written, publicising a garment manufacture business, or merely writing for fun or to show off their expertise.

Having been thoroughly inspired by joining the world of bloggers I was inspired to find some more, so I have signed up to go to the BritMums Live! blogging conference in June. This is an exciting prospect: two days mingling with 550 bloggers in an environment that is totally blog based! Could I become over-saturated with blogs? Never! This is an experience I am definitely looking forward to.

Now all these people already have blogs, so why should I want to circulate there? Well, here is an opportunity to find out why people blog, what makes them tick, learn from their successes and failures, find out new stuff – basically by entering such a world I’m sure I can fill in many gaps in my blogging knowledge so that what I present to you will become all that much better!

There are plenty of fun things we can be doing in preparation for this momentous weekend, such as participating in a linky. How exciting – I will be answering some questions below and will add this post to the BritMums Live! blog in the hope that more people will read it and the rest of this website. So here goes:

Name: Alice

Blog: Fairy Blog Mother

Twitter ID: @alice_elliott

Height: 164cm last time I measured myself!

Hair: Short, brown and spiky!

Eyes: Brown, hidden behind purple glasses.

Is this your first blogging conference?

Yeah, believe it or not!

Are you attending both days?

I certainly aim, though unfortunately I may have to miss the last bit of Saturday.

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

Getting the chance to meet lots of bloggers in one place and learning lots!

What are you wearing?

Oh, something purple – I always wear purple!

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013?

By meeting bloggers I want to find out all about them, why they blog, what tips they can give me and maybe gain some knowledge that will help my business.

Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows

I’m an ex-graphic designer and I did wedding stationery – most unsatisfactorily – with flowers and calligraphy. I absolutely love flowers, hence why I’m participating in a blogathon (posting every day for a year) with my nature blog!
