I have learnt over time that the more you give, the more you get back. Blogging seems to be a bit like being a parent in the playground. There are lots of little groups that all talk to each other (and block up the gates with their prams!) and then there are the ones that just say hi in passing (pick up their kids and go) Some bloggers have their own little cliques and you somehow feel like you would be intruding if you tried to butt into their conversations but then at the same time if you keep quiet how will anybody ever know who you are?
I hear about blogging conferences all the time but I have never felt like I could be a part of them. Recently, with all the excitement of Britmums live, I have come to realise that we are all in the same position and I am a blogger like all the rest. I may not have 100s of followers or be nominated for awards but that is what conferences are all about... learning new things from each other, growing, and having the opportunity to meet some of the people you spend half your life talking to on the Internet. I wish I realised this earlier and bought myself a ticket because now I am feeling envious of all those lovely ladies and gents that I'm sure are currently having a fab time at Britmums live.
