So next Saturday I am off to Blogtacular and I uber excited about this. I couldn't make it last year and I was gutted so I treated myself to a early Christmas gift and got a ticket as soon as I could.

The Saturday after that I am off to Britmums Live, I haven't missed one yet! This year will be different for me as I am a speaker *shakes with nerves*. Now if anyone knows me from way back when I had my first little blog they will know I did indeed speak at the very first Cyber Mummy which was pre Britmums Live. I was a crowd sourced speaker and read out a of my blog posts and vowed never to speak in public again *ahem*.
I am being brave and along with the lovely Kate and Chelle I shall be talking about being a social media manager. I know many people think its not a real job but honestly it is! If you are coming to my session please be kind.
Ok I suppose I should tell you a little bit about me:
My name is Carol
I'm really bad at taking selfies
*cough* Its my birthday the day before Blogtacular
I am addicted to starting new blogs
I have been blogging just over 6 years
I may not be a natural red head
I love red lipstick
I can't cook Yorkshire puddings
I bake darn good cakes
When I was little my nan asked my what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said a secretary, to which she replied "you want to be the boss!" so I took her advice and became my own boss.
I give really good hugs
If you want to know any more about me just ask.
Before I go I wrote a post a few years ago for my client Kids One Stop Shop on How To Survive a Blogging Conference, its full of tips for newbies.
