Blogger Fest 2011

Well, some exciting news was announced today on twitter by the lovely guys over at Parental Circle.

They will be hosting Scotland's first blogger conference on the 7th of May at their headquarters in Paisley. I for one am so excited to get the opportunity to go along and meet new parent bloggers and learn the skills they outlined today in their press release. Here's a little taster of it.

"Parental Circle founder and CEO Christopher McCann said: “For us, hosting the Bloggers Fest is a natural extension of what we do at Parental Circle. Using the Internet and social media allows parents to develop social and support networks and to share experience and advice with other parents.

“Parental Circle Blogger Fest will extend parents’ social media skills as well as inspire discussion about new ways of using the Internet to support the wider parenting community. It will be a great fun day and I can't wait to meet everyone."

Established bloggers as well as parents who are interested in starting a blog are welcome at the day-long event, held at Parental Circle’s Paisley headquarters on Saturday, May 7, 2011.

Speakers will be key figures in the online community and there will be a choice of workshops and presentations throughout the day. Topics will include internet safety, photography for blogs, working with PRs and using the major blog platforms. "

So are we excited yet people???

I know a lot of people have been put off the other blogger conferences due to the distance (mostly down south) and the cost. This conferences tickets cost only £20 for members of the Parental Circle and £25 for non members, but hey, membership is free so not much of an excuse for not joining is there??? Hop over to and get signed up. It's a great online support for parents and you can linky your blog onto your profile.

The conference starts at 9.15am and finishes at 4.30pm and includes lunch, tea and coffee. If I know these guys it will be well catered and very well presented with lots of useful information to help parent bloggers.

The venue is very Central for the M8 motor way, airport , public transport links and a short drive/cab ride to the city centre of Glasgow.

As far as I'm aware there are other details being finalised and I'm sure they will update you soon on the website or follow them on twitter at @parentalcircle .

So all you parent bloggers and wanna be parent bloggers get signed up now and I hope to see you there.
