I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015!

Gosh – it only feels like yesterday where I thought of writing a blog.  I can see it now – I was sat at my kitchen table, baby snuggled up in bed for a while, so with a few minutes to spare, I wrote a little something and pressed ‘publish’!

Nothing happened of course, as I didt have a clue what to do with social media and even less of a clue about marketing myself!  I remember being in absolute awe as I had my first comment – I think from the USA!

Just over a year on and it’s grown from a weird fascination to a full blown hobby – much to the dismay of my hubbie who has lost me to a Mac!

But I’m loving it.  My site is my third baby. And it’s precious to me.

But I’ve still so much to learn – which is where BritMums Live comes in!!!!

It’s not long to go now until the biggest event of the annual blogging calendar.

With a line up of key note speakers and pro bloggers to die for – I am so excited that I am going to be attending this year.

I’ve still got lots to think about beforehand, and have still not even booked my train tickets *slaps wrist* – but with the date drawing ever nearer, I’d better get my act in gear pretty soon!

So – here is a little bit about me…..


 Stephanie Burroughs – though I’m generally just Steph (or Shorty, as some like to call me!)


 Diary of a Midlife Mummy

Twitter ID?



Ohhhhh, do I really have to say?? I’m about 4ft 11!!!!!!  I’ll be the short one in the massive wedges probably!


Longish with blonde highlights – nope, not natural!


Blue – natural!

Is this your first blogging conference?

No, it will be my third but this doesn’t make me any less nervous! I went to Blogfest last year and have just attended Blogcamp in Bristol last week.

Are you attending both days?

Yes, I’m really looking forward to the awards on the Friday night – I’m not up for any myself, but some of my friends are and it will be lovely to cheer them on.  Plus I’m really looking forward to having time to just relax, chat and make a few more friends.

What are you most looking forward to at BritMums Live 2015?

Pretty much all of it really! As I’ve just said, it will be fabulous to meet up with my bloggy chums and to meet even more after a Prosecco or two, but I’m also really looking forward to learning a whole lot more about tho blogging world I’ve become so fixated with.  Attending the sessions and listening to all the pro’s will be inspiring.

What are you wearing? 

Not A Clue Yet!!! Probably something a little dressy for the Friday evening, but for the Saturday, perhaps something a little more casual and comfortable!

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015?  

I would love to come away with more ideas, more technical know how, exciting opportunities and more blogging buddies!!

Do you have any tips to pass on to others who may not have been before?

As I said – I’ve not been to Britmums before, but I’m looking forward to reading all of the tips from bloggers who have been.  But, with experience only of Blogfest, I will try my hardest this time to be more confident in who I am – I was so nervous that I think it hindered my experience and I would love things to be different at this event.

I’m so excited and really can’t wait to meet you all.

This is me (with my little Ella)….


love steph
