Come to Blogtacular!

Have you heard about Blogtacular? It's an awesome new conference for design, craft and lifestyle bloggers, and I'll be speaking at it on Saturday 10th May 2014. You should come!

What is it?
In the words of the organisers...

"Blogtacular is a place for bloggers whose hearts beat with creativity to come together to meet, share and inspire. This is a place for people who create vibrant and original content to discuss their work, fill their minds with new ideas and to collaborate with fellow bloggers. No matter what you blog about; if you love great quality content and beautiful design you’ll find yourself at home at Blogtacular. 

Blogtacular brings together some of the hottest talent from the online world. We’ll have a schedule packed full of innovation, inspiration and mind blowing points of view. At the heart of our business we’re guided by our principles: we value talent, we create great content and we work with nice people."

Sounds awesome, non? Other speakers include Joy Cho from Oh Joy!, Anne Ditmeyer who is a columnist for Design*Sponge, Kate Carter who is editor of Life & Style at The Guardian, Lara Watson who is editor of Mollie Makes, and more!

What will I be talking about?
I'll be sharing my experience and tips on turning your blog into a book - from how to make your blog appealing to publishers, through writing a book proposal, to managing the process of writing so that you actually enjoy it and don't go completely nuts or miss your deadlines! The session will also include insider input from the world of publishing and literary agents.

The deets
The conference will be held at the Royal Institution in Mayfair, London. It starts on the evening of Friday 9th May with a drinks reception and the keynote talk (I might do a book signing that night, TBC), and then runs all day on Saturday 10th May. Take a look at the Blogtacular website for all the details and to get your ticket before they sell out.

I'm so excited about Blogtacular, not only to be a speaker, but to be a participant at such a fab-sounding event all about one of my fave ever topics - blogging! I could literally talk about blogging all day, so to be at an all-day event talking and listening to other people talk about blogging will be awesome. Hope to see you there too.

Be there or be square!
