Thank you to everyone who came along to Blogfest 2014, and made it such a brilliant day!  

Our glittering celebration of sharp writing and big ideas took place at the lovely Kings Place on Saturday 8th November. This year's high-octane programme was packed with fabulous speakers, gripping panel sessions, and expert advice - plus new skill-sharing roundtables to help you get the most from what you post, in the company of some of the most talented writers and bloggers around.

There were plenty of opportunities to connect with fellow bloggers and impressive sponsors, plus lots of delicious food and drink throughout the day. A swanky evening reception and bulging goody bags rounded off proceedings nicely. 

Do catch up on the day's events by following @MumsnetBloggers, browsing our photos and watching our blistering Think Bombs, from Camila Batmanghelidjh, Suzanne Moore and Francesca Martinez. See you next year!

Watch the Think Bombs

The Think Bombs really were a highlight - Francesca Martinez's blistering speech on how loving yourself is an act of civil disobedience, Camila Batmanghelidjh on regaining the spirit of philanthropy, and Suzanne Moore on women and self-confidence. If you weren't lucky enough to bear witness, do catch up on them!

A fantastic mix of thought-provoking panels and debates kept us all riveted - and our Think Bomb sessions were truly inspiring. This year, alongside our roster of must-attend masterclasses, we also hosted a series of blogging roundtables for skill-sharing and knowledge-pooling - after all, bloggers know blogging best.
