Over-Thinking #BML16 + My 2nd Vlog!

When I first heard of BritMums Live, I brushed it under the carpet and said to myself that my blog is too new to attend something like that. I’m glad I ignored that voice and am going to be attending. But I realise I have been hiding behind my blog. Tapping away each night, almost as if no-one is reading at all. But then I began to start worrying.

This week, I’ve been feeling increasingly nervous about being at an event with 700 other bloggers plus sponsors. I’ve always been great at worrying about everything and over-thinking little details. However, this week I’ve impressed myself with the amount of worrying I’ve put in. Everything down to the elevator pitch (a succinct way to describe your blog), to what I’m going to wear, how I’m going to recognise my blogger pals who I speak to so much but probably won’t recognise face to face…

I’ve also been questioning my blog itself and why I write it. Someone asked me the other day what I want to get out of my blog. I looked blankly and thought “hmm that’s a good question”. I have no idea apart from I love doing it and like having a place to document our lives! So I thought I would put this all in a vlog; my first one out of PJ’s! So it should be a bit of an easier watch than the first one 😉 Let me know what you think!

    Love it Bridie, now I know what you look like! You’ve reminded me I need to do the elevator pitch prep. Can’t wait to meet you on Saturday. Claire x

    It’s great to see you in front of the camera – you’re so personable! I wish I was coming to BML16 so I could meet you and all the other lovely #tribalchat bloggers.

    Aww I would say don’t be nervous but I am as well! Although we’ve only been chatting for a few weeks I can’t wait to meet you. I have a floor-drobe too and my boyfriend hates it. He’s always moaning about it. I still have no idea what to wear, I did look on ASOS and found loads of things I liked but didn’t buy anything in the end. I will probably end up wearing something from the floor.x

    I also hate shopping, online shopping is always the best for me as I’m also short! I hope you enjoy yourself and get stuck into the sessions 🙂 #stayclassymama

    Bridie you’re just so gorgeous! I know exactly what you mean about shopping it’s so frustrating. ASOS is awesome isn’t it? Love a black dress! Have an amazing time at BML, I am so sad I won’t be able to come and meet you all! #ablogginggoodtime

    Ah Bridge I LOVE THIS. I was laughing along with you when you started talking about floordrobe hahah and the fact you hate shopping, I am the same! I don’t even try the clothes on I just buy them and hope they will fit at home. I also wear black all the time, I am literally wearing a black shirt and black jeans as I type this. Anyway, you are a fab vlogger and I am looking forward to meeting you!

    Sorry for the late comment Bridie, life got a bit chaotic!! What a fab vlog!! Such a natural!! Yes, me and my husband have a floordrobe-the fact that we both do it makes the habit even harder to break!! I was terrified over what to wear to BML, and also bought about 20 dresses from asos to try on!! Even on the morning I was agonising over whether it was right or not!! I hope you had a great time, I didn’t see you, but the list of people I didn’t see is actually huge!
