For a few years now I have followed many bloggers who have attended blogging conferences. I have read their blog posts and stalked their instagram pictures of the day and felt a little pang of jealousy wishing it was me!
I sometimes feel that I am on the edge of the blogging community. I am not in my late teens or early twenties, I have no major beauty knowledge nor am I a mummy blogger.
It can be hard to connect with fellow bloggers who like me do not fit in with the main genres of blogs out there.
Unfortunetly being based in Scotland there are not too many opportunities to get out and mingle in the blogging world so when I read online that tickets were being released for Manchester’s biggest blogging conference #Blogonmsi I swallowed a big brave pill and booked a ticket!
Blog On runs twice a year in May and September and when I realised that September’s date was the 24th and fell on my annual leave it was almost like fate was telling me that I had to go!
For anyone who know’s me they will quickly realise that this is very much out of my comfort zone. I hate going places myself that I am not familiar with and I am filled with anxiety when going to an event where I know no-one!
Thankfully at this conference I will get the opportunity to meet some of the lovely bloggers that I have gotten to know via my little instagram pod and also I am very excited to meet Kat who I co-host #DreamandSparkle with!
I can’t wait to finally put faces to names and connect with lots of lovely brands and hopefully make some new friends even if I am a little bit terrified!
Have you ever been to a blogging conference? Would you consider going to one alone?
