Way back in October last year, I was asked by the organisers, Kat Molesworth and Kat Goldin, if I'd be interested in speaking at the event. I always get nervous about public speaking, but after having done a few talks last year and the fact that Blogtacular sounded like it was going to be fabulous I agreed, and I'm so glad I did!
Oh Joy! - which I would have loved to have been at, but I decided that it was best to conserve my energy and just attend the full day event on the Saturday. From what I hear Joy's talk was hugely inspirational, so it was a shame to have missed it.
It was an early start on Saturday, I got there for around 8:30am, but it was so lovely to see so many familiar faces there, and also to meet some folk who I've only ever spoke to online, and even some of our 91 Magazine contributors, who I'd never met in person. So straight away, there was lots of chit chat and there was a fabulous buzz about the venue.
Some of the sessions ran simultaneously, so it was impossible to attend everything, but I heard that the photo walk with Xanthe Berkeley was a lot of fun, as well as the styling workshops with Ellie Tennant. I thought it was great that there were some hands on sessions like these as well as the talks and panel discussions throughout the day.
If you couldn't attend but wish you had, well you now have the virtual chance to do just that! The ladies have organised for the majority of the sessions to be available online as a 'virtual conference'! how fab! It'll be live in June, so you can sign up for that now! If you are a blogger whose lost confidence or motivation, I promise you it will return after watching these talks! ;)
All of the above lovely photos were shot by Will Ireland for Mollie Makes, so thanks to them for making these available. You can see more images over at the Blogtacular Flickr page.
