Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards 2012
I'm in the finals of the blog awards - this blog has been selected as one of the 8 finalists in the Inspire Category! I'm very excited as you can imagine. This category will be judged by the Editor of the Huffington Post UK and the winner will be announced at an awards ceremony in Central London. I recently wrote a guest post for the Britmums Website describing how it feels to come along to the Britmums Live Conference and to be a finalist in one of the award categories
The Ultimate Britmums Meme
I'm going to be brave and attend an event for other women who blog. Claire from http://aspergersinfo.wordpress.com has set up the Ultimate Britmums meme for us to get to know other bloggers, so this is my attempt to answer some of the questions............
Q: What’s your blog title/URL and how long have you been blogging?
A: Was this in the Plan (http://www.suburbansuperwoman.blogspot.com/) - blogging for nearly 4 years!!!
Q: Will Britmums Live be your First blogging conference?
Yep! Been stuck in hospitals almost permanently for the last few years, but as we manage more of our daughter's care at home now I can get out occassionally - also it's the first time I've felt confident enough in my blog to raise my head above the parapet....
Q: Did you bag yourself a sponsor?
Still working on it - got a couple of ideas, my blog's a bit niche....
Q: Are you attending both days?
Yes - Daisy's health permitting
Q: What are you most looking forward to about the conference?
Meeting lots of other like minded women, getting lots of top tips, getting out of the house!!!

Depends if I get a sponsor, otherwise may wear a tshirt for my charity which I support (http://www.shootingstarchase.org/)

As I said, a blow dry the day before will see me alright (and a bit of lippy)

Nope, but I'm sure to ask lots of questions
