I am going to BritMums Live on Friday. And I am terrified and excited. I am looking forward to kissing the faces of people I have grown to adore, am slightly bricking it about speaking on a panel, and am practising a variety of loser faces for the award ceremony on the Friday night. This is my favourite so far…
I think it conveys the perfect balance of ‘the right person won’ and ‘I am just proud to have been a finalist’ and ‘but am a teensy bit disapointed’. Genuinely am delighted to have been a finalist, and hold no hopes of clutching a trophy by the end of the evening, even to be on the same list as the other finalists is a MA-HIS-SIVE honour, cos they all totally kick my blogging arse when it comes to all-round brilliance!
Any-hoo, there is a linky thing for those that are going. Sorry if you are not, but who knows, you might care what colour pants I am wearing anyway, so read on, or not, I won’t take offence…
Name: Sonya Cisco
Blog: This one innit
Twitter ID: @sonyacisco (I is THAT original)
Height: 5ft 6ish. I think I have shrunk lately, am sure I used to be taller, either that or my kids keep growing.
Eyes: 2, on front of face, sludge coloured, and utterly myopic.
Hair: Rich Copper Gold. That is what the packet says. Cut and dyed by me, hence a bit raggedy.
Is this your first blogging conference? Yes. In fact it is my first anything conference. We didn’t have conferences when I was messing about in bands. Unless you count festivals?!?
What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2013? Licking the faces of some fabulous bloggers. Oddly it is the thing they are least looking forward to.
What are you wearing? A dress. Or some jeans. Or a dress. Pants. And some boots that are halfway between granny boots and orthopedic shoes. Sexy.
What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2013? I hope to seal some friendships with real life meetings, to be inspired to be a better writer, blogger and all round human being, and to get drunk for the first time in nearly 3 years.
Tell us one thing about you that not everyone knows. I am shy and supremely uncool. I apparently give off the impression that I am both cool and confident on here, but take the screen away and I am a timid dork. Until I have had a drink, then I am a noisy dork.
