CyberMummy 2010 was an amazing experience

On the night before the CyberMummy conference I started to panic wondering what I was letting myself in for. My blog buddy Jane did her best to reassure me that I'd have a great time.
The moment I entered I was taken aback by the lively atmosphere, I looked around and saw what looked like lot's of mummies chatting, helping themselves to refreshments that were generously on display.
It was well organised with speakers from all walks of life,I was happy about that as I think blogging should be for all, not just for one exclusive group.
Not everyone was a mummy, there were some PRs, Sponsors, and even a few Daddy bloggers.
I enjoyed the talks and I especially enjoyed listening to the personal blogs written by some of the mummies present, I found myself laughing till the tears fell down my face. Some touching moments as well.
I also found it interesting to hear how important it is to be honest in your bloggs , I have a lot to say but I often feel like I should be careful about the content of my blogg , well that's about to change. Secondly I'm dyslexic which in many ways has discouraged me from writing, its as if I have so much going on inside my head but just simply don't have the language to express it, this can be very frustrating at times, but I know quite a few people who are dyslexic and I find myself telling them not to allow it to be a stumbling block in their lives I realise I must apply this to myself. Going to the cyberMummy conference really encouraged me to push myself a lot more. This I will do and I shall enjoy myself at the same time. Thank you CyberMummy : )

  1. Vivian, my husband (who blogs at has been diagnosed as severely dyslexic which as you'll know is the second most severe category of dyslexia. I LOVE reading his work especially as I know how hard it is for him to get it out of his head. Do push yourself because I assure you it'll be well worth it.

  2. Thank you Vonnie!I really appreciate you taking the time to tell me that,I shall be reading your husbands work and I'm very excited to read yours as well also.

  3. As Vonnie says it's a struggle to write anything as you'll know.
    The way I look at it though is all these ideas are flying around my head with only a tiny hole for me to push them through. The more I push to write though the bigger the whole gets and the easier I find it.

    Don't whatever you do stop writing. As soon as I miss a few days of writing I'm back at square one again which is exactly where I am now and I'm having to force myself to write at least something every day to get back into the swing of things.

  4. Wow that makes so much sense! I could not have explained it better! Thanks Bobzilla!

  5. It was really great to meet you at CyberMummy and I think it's amazing that you are writing and getting yourself out there when it's so difficult!!! You go Vivian!! Hi to Jane too xx
