We are getting pretty darn excited about the imminent approach of BlogFest on November 9, where we'll be hearing from Prof. Tanya Byron, Jon Ronson, Stella Creasy and Jo Brand - as well as some of our fantastic bloggers including Annie Spratt, Tanya Barrow, Jack Monroe, Rosie Fiore, Jax Blunt, Alison Perry, Sonya Cisco, Tanya Tirraro, Cassandra Parkin, Andrea Mann, MaggieWoodley and Gemma Regaldo-Hawkey.

This thread is for everyone who’s already coming, is thinking of coming (or wishes they were coming!) to gather, share tips and info – and generally get ready for the Big Day!

You can also join in the conversation on Twitter by following us @MumsnetBloggers. Feel free to tweet us with any questions – or, alternatively, you can email us on bloggers[at]mumsnet[dot]com.

See you on the 9th!

Great idea about the badges. btw is there somewhere I can leave a wheelie overnight case in the building on Saturday? Might look a bit odd trailing it behind me to all the sessions ! Please come and say hello anyway even if I'm Mrs Bag Lady tomorrow. My blog is Looking forward to meeting you smile

Just about to go and decide on what I wearing, I want to wear heels but feel I'll regret that after 10minutes! Ha!

See you in the morning peeps!

Hi heirraising,

There's a cloakroom at the venue where you'll be able to leave your case.

See you tomorrow!

i am all set. Handbag emptied of crap for only VITA Lthings. ARe people bringing laptops/ipads etc?
I don't have a blog so wouldnt really need to DO anything on it... will bring a phone charger though!

the stickers were my idea and I'm very proud of myself for it

I am so stupidly excited about this! Especially now I know I can drag more crap along with me - otherwise I'd have to bring my hideously ugly green bag as that's the only thing big enough to take all my crap (it looks like a pus ball).

I REALLY want to wear a pencil skirt, but that means heels, and I can't walk in heels. So it'll be my faithful Docs instead and what will definitely end up as laddered tights. Cardies I took two pairs of shoes to another do -flats for travelling in and err, more flats that weren't so practical when I was there.

Palmerston I'm bringing several notebooks and pens too, but no laptop. Will hammer the heck out of my phone battery though.

Don't worry. Ill spot your green bag. I can lend you my charger.

I've just arrived in London - very excited about tomorrow! In a bit of a panic now though, because I forgot to print my ticket and I don't think I'm going to be able to print it off before tomorrow. Does anyone know if we definitely need a paper copy of it, or can I show my e-mail confirmation?

Is there a cloakroom? Cos its jeffin freezing out and I've got to be milling round portals of publics transport (urgh) but I'm not wanting to be carrying my big ole coat round the gaff....

Panic over.

Lord P just completed my ritual handbag emptying too. I'm all set. Damn early start for my train.

I'm the one in the denim dress......

Anyone for coffee?

Did we have to print tickets? I haven't done that. ..

LordPalmerston Sat 09-Nov-13 07:59:05

I've got my ticket on my phone. The passbook thing

bloomingheather Sat 09-Nov-13 08:20:21

Brilliant Palmerston - so glad you mentioned passbook. I hadn't heard of it before but then discovered that it was on my phone! Have added ticket to it.
