Mumsnet BlogFest 2012 - what a fantastic day! Thanks to everyone who joined us in celebrating all there is to love about blogging - and commiserations to all who couldn't get a ticket (register for 2013 here!). We had an amazing time in the company of some of the best writers and bloggers around, including a genuinely inspirational opening speech from Miriam González Durántez - and a fabulously funny (and scurrilous) closing one from Caitlin Moran. It was fab to see so many talented Mumsnet bloggers gathered together in one place - we met so many lovely people and we hope you did too. Come and see our photos, watch our videos, join the bloghop - and roll on Mumnset BlogFest 2013!
In case you've forgotten...
Take a look at these presentations from some of our wonderful speakers if you need to fill in the gaps (or can't read quickly-scribbled notes) from the two SEO and Social Media sessions. Plus, panellist Cari Rosen's notes on Getting Published.
These sessions explored the crucial stuff. How do I write authentically? Is everything in life grist to the blogging mill? Can blogging change the world? How do you deal with trolls? An incredible line-up of speakers shared their experiences and debated the big questions.
Each of our 'need to know' sessions covered a specific skillset. From SEO to social media, from photography to getting published: this strand was filled with all the techy tips and marketing know-how needed to give your blog wings.
