Today I have done something completely out of the ordinary for me. If you cast your eyes to the sidebar on the right you will notice my new badge for Blog On which is being hosted at MOSI in Manchester on 4th May.
Ever since I spotted it on another blog (can't quite remember whose, I read so many these days!) I've been checking out their website and wondering if I should buy a ticket. My dh wasn't keen initially, not really understanding my need to go and meet other bloggers and learn about the blogging world a little bit more, but after my mother said I should go, and following my exasperation that tickets might not be available for much longer he told me this morning to go and by myself a ticket before they sold out. He probably still doesn't understand it all though.
Feeling brave I bought my ticket. The ticket email arrived in seconds and so now I'm going! I'm a bit nervous to be honest. After a couple of my very favourite bloggers enquired as to if I had my ticket yet over on Twitter I felt that I should definitely go - after all there aren't many blogging opportunities like this for us Northerners. This of course means that I'll be meeting people that I talk to a bit already on Twitter and also lots of new people too.
I'm definitely out of my comfort zone, but in a good way I think. Also, I've heard there will be cake, and I like cake. That kind of makes up for the nerves.
