I’m speaking at Blog On – Icebreaker Linky

This weekend James and I are headed up to Manchester for the Blog On Conference. I am going to be speaking on Sunday to a roomful of bloggers about WordPress.

I am a shy person.  I often find it hard to start up conversations, introduce myself to strangers, or have any clue what I am… Continue Reading “Blogging conferences; the good, the bad, and the scary”

Bring on the blog conferences!

I have been a blogger for many years, and have been blogging here at Mama Geek for over two years now. I have watched as blog conferences have become more popular, with events like CybHer and Britmums Live being great opportunities for bloggers to get together to socialise and help each other to improve their blogs.
