me, you and a whole heap of others

so i’ve taken the plunge and bought my ticket. eeeeekkkkk. its taken me a while, i know, but so many other bloggers and tweeters have been chatting away about britmums live for such a long time and with such enthusiasm, and i’ve really wanted to say “can i come too?” but for some strange reason, i just haven’t had the nerve. why is that?

it’s confused me a bit you see, because i’m not a particularly shy person, i’m really not in the very slightest, but something has been holding me back. I love the interaction that i have had with bloggers and tweeters over the last couple of months as i have become much more interactive, so why would i not want to do this?

i wonder if it’s down to the anonymity that you have whilst blogging and tweeting, i’m just some letters and then suddenly, BAM, i will be totally exposed. you will see me. what i look like? how i sound? and then what happens? will anyone even notice? who will i talk to? what is the etiquette? oh my god i feel sick already, get a grip woman.

i can only compare to the first day at university or first day in a new job. where you are suddenly thrust into the unknown. funny thing is i’m a grown woman, a responsible parent and suddenly and quite ridiculously, i’m find that i’m shitting a brick, of absolute magnificent proportions!

so as you see i’m nervous, but i’m going for it. i booked the afternoon off work and i’m coming. please be kind and say hello.

See you at BritMums Live! 2012

    Perfectly natural to be honest. Meeting up with people you sort-of-know from the Internet is always a daunting prospect.
