That's Not My Age at the Mumsnet Blogfest




After four years of blogging - four years, and I still don't know what a permalink is - I've been asked to sit on a panel of experts. At a conference. Get me. The Mumsnet Blogfest is on Saturday, there are loads of fabulous speakers: Caitlin Moran, Miriam Gonzalez Durantez, Suzanne Moore, Natasha Walter, Gaby Wood, and I feel honoured (and more than a little nervous) to be in such good company. The Blog Beautiful panel is chaired by freelance journalist and blogger Erica Davies, with the Guardian's Sali Hughes and fellow bloggers Avril Keys and Louise Woollam. And me, of course. Little do they know that last time a gave a talk I ended up drunk with a shoe on my head. Ahem.

I'll tell you all about it next week.

Well done. I look forward to hearing how you get on.

If you can remember the shoe on your head it can't have been that bad ;-)

Congrats on the invitation! All best for it being memorable in ways you most prefer, though I'd have been interested in that last talk. :)

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog!
