blogger event


My first time at #WTM 1

If you don’t know what #WTM means it’s world travel market. A large event at London ExCel all about travel, with travel agents, airlines, tourist boards, PR folk, press and bloggers. Going in alone was very daunting, it is a truly massive building. I signed in as press and that was it. On my own, no map, wasn’t told (or advised) where to go. I wasn’t aware having the Press pass meant free tea or coffee, nor did I know there is a press room to sit in for a little rest. Nope, I knew none of this, nor where the meeting rooms were. It’s a shame I learnt all that at leaving time rather than on the way in. Anyhow why did I go there? I am not a travel blogger, I am just another mother that blogs right? Wrong! I have worked in travel, well the add on jobs […]

What I’ve learned at blogcamp (#BCUK) 16

Today I went to Birmingham to chat and have coffee with bloggers learn things. If you’re a blogger and have no idea what blogcamp is, it’s a free bloggers event thingamywhatsit organised by those lovely Tots100 folk. The day centers around coffee, cake and cookies talking sessions such as how to properly use your SLR camera and how to collaborate with other bloggers more successfully. I zoned in on the “travel blogger” focused sessions as I really would love to travel more. I did not swat-up on who was talking, which brands were sponsoring the event (Show Room and Cow and Gate)  or ask loads of bloggers who was and wasn’t planning on coming.
