Hello everyone

As you may have noticed, we've just launched Mumsnet BlogFest 2012.  It's happening on Saturday 10 November at a slinky venue in central London, and we've got a fabulous roster of speakers lined up - including a keynote speech from the lovely Caitlin Moran.

She'll be joined by Jeanette Winterson, Zoe Williams, Liz Jones <gasp!>, Tanya Byron, Natasha Walter... have a look here for our ever-expanding list.

Bloggers and non-bloggers alike are most welcome, so don't worry if you want to hear some great speakers but aren't (yet!) blogging. If you're quick off the mark, you can catch the early bird offer (£50 per ticket - a 33% discount), but do hurry - the offer ends at the stroke of midnight this Sunday. 

There's more info over on our BlogFest pages - but shout if you have any questions and we'll do our best to help. And don't forget to tell your friends, your colleagues and your mum - the more the merrier!

Not to mention Liz Jones grin.

I'm slightly disappointed that the map no longer shows the venue as floating in the Thames. I had great hopes it was correct...

Us too, Tee2072. We were SO looking forward to wearing our wetsuits...

I'm sure you still could....

Set a fashion?

I haven't got a blog. (But am theoretically interested.)

Would this all be over my head?

Most certainly not LineRunner. Have a look at our programme - there's something for the interested non-blogger going on throughout the day. Also... Caitlin Moran!

Any other northerners going?

Hmm,, Me thinks dear Caitlin is becoming over exposed.

I might go - from Manchester, Linerunner.

LineRunner Wed 26-Sep-12 18:23:27

Hi, mcmooncup. Aren't the train fares a rip-off these days?

I wonder if MN could negotiate train fare discounts!

I am flying down as it is cheaper.

I think that it is an interesting programme, not just for bloggers.
