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!


  1. I always follow their twitter chat. Looks so much fun and its a shame I am booked otherwise i was going it

  2. It all sounds really amazing! I'd love to write a book and listening to your own experience and others' would be undoubtedly helpful but ticket prices made me jump a bit! I'll give it some thought but it will probably be booked-out by then. I'm sure anyone going there will learn so much out of it!

  3. Hi Tilly, I booked my ticket to the event this week and I'm SO, SO excited! I can't wait to see your talk. :) Leanne (@knitmeacake) x

  4. I enjoyed watching the video of you speaking at the Folksy Summer School. You had some really great tips. You'll do great!

  5. Oh, thats a shame - I'm in Seattle that weekend. It looks really fantastic and I hope your talk goes well.

  6. I soooo want to come! Let me know if you ever come do something in the U.S.!

  7. Hello Lovely Tilly, May 10th is my birthday and I couldn't think of a nice present to have than to come to this wonderful event to hear you - fingers crossed I can make it! Lots of hugs and loves

  8. Hey there! I'll be in Germany... Maybe one day in Paris ^_^

  9. Shame I'll miss it. Of course if it was online I'd be there :)!

  10. Hi Tilly - I've only recently started following your blog, but I am a big fan of The Great British Sewing Bee so was very excited to see that you're going to be at Blogtacular! I've got my ticket and can't wait. I've never gone to any sort of event like that before, so I was a bit nervous about booking up (and forking out that cash!) but I just thought "what the hell!"

    Looking forward to hearing you speak, and am loving your blog. I'm currently debating ordering your Mathilde pattern - just wondering whether it's a bit too ambitious for me!
