I’m still recovering from Blogopolis fever. My poor tired brain is overwhemed with new ideas and as a result has ceased to function. There is so much to process! So much to action! The day was a blur of information overload, ‘celebrity spotting’ and massive tea consumption.
Here are my highlights:
· Meeting some of the bloggers that I regularly engage with, ladies with whom I have exchanged comments and shared ideas. I ‘liked’ them on Facebook and now I can say that I like them in real life too.
· Chatting (or rather rambling innate dribble) to my blogging heroes Mrs Woog and Eden Riley. It was a very surreal experience. Having followed their blogs I felt like I knew them so well, but to them I was just a rambling-star-struck newbie-blogger struggling to maintain a coherent conversation. There are so many things I could have talked about, questions I could have asked, photos I could have taken… but instead, I chose to waffle about how I don’t get out by myself very much and how strange it was to spend the day with adults. Nice one Catherine.
· The live twitter feed at the front of the room was a bit distracting. I tried to listen to the speaker, take notes and tweet along. I couldn’t. I thought that I was good at multitasking, but it turns out that whilst being able to juggle the different needs of a baby and toddler is a skill, it is not remotely useful at a conference. I gave up. I concentrated on listening and taking notes and tried my best to block out the rest. Although, when I popped to the loo (five cups of tea will inevitably lead to frequent bathroom visits) I was enormously grateful for Twitter… I didn’t miss a thing.
So, in summary, I drank a lot of tea. I used twitter in the loo. I made a tit of myself. All in all, it was a very good day.
|Oh the tea! So much Tea!|
