I’m Going To BritMums Live 2015!

Yes I’m going for the first time and I can’t wait to meet many of the bloggers I’ve ‘met’ through Social Media. So, joining in with the “The I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015 Meme“,  here are my answers.

Linda Hobbis & Ieuan Hobbis
Ieuan and I

Name:  Linda Hobbis

Blog:  www.motherdistracted.co.uk

Mine is a parenting / lifestyle blog aimed at midlife mums and women late to motherhood (as I was at 43 and 45).  My husband, Mat, and I live with Caitlin (7) and Ieuan (5) just outside Cardiff in a village called Dinas Powys.

Twitter ID:  @lindahobbis

Height:  5ft 6″

I’m afraid I haven’t managed to go metric yet.  I am used to decimalization now though.

Hair:  Brown / blonde.  Actually nobody has seen my real hair colour for years.  It used to be the glorious red my son’s is.

Eyes:  Green.

Is this your first blogging conference?

I attended BlogOnCymru earlier this year which was great fun, particularly as it involved wine and cake.  I like a conference with wine and cake.

Are you attending both days?

I am.  There is so much to learn about blogging and so many aspects to it.  It is definitely not, as I once naively thought, “keeping a bit of a diary”.

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

Meeting some of the lovely bloggers I chat to on Social Media and particularly bloggers in my age group. I’m particularly looking forward to talking to the Post40 Bloggers and any midlife mums like myself.

What are you wearing?

I’d like to say something at the cutting edge of fashion with an inspired use of detailing and the kind of high heels they prefer at Cannes.  Obviously this means I will be wearing my leggings and shoes I can walk in. Plus something in black, in case I need to hide.

What do you hope to gain from BritMums Live 2015?

A bit more direction for the coming year’s blogging.  There has been a lot of talk lately amongst bloggers about whether blogs have a natural sell by date and how to keep things fresh.  That’s something I’d like to learn more about.

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

I’m a newbie so I will be wandering about looking slightly awkward – well, for the first 5 minutes anyway!
