Prose for Thought – The Blogger. A Poem for BritMums Live.

Welcome to this week’s Prose for Thought.

Well, the time is upon us. Tomorrow is one of the biggest blogging events of the year – BritMums Live. I shall never forget my first year, last year. I found it overwhelming yet brilliant. A brain bulge of information but truly informative. I met many bloggers but can’t really remember due to the fact that I was so bombarded with EVERYTHING. 

This year, with another years experience under my belt, I am really looking forward to being much more relaxed about it all. I will not try to go to every single session. I shall spend a bit more time socialising with people AND I shall remember every single bit! 

But, the best thing about all of this for me is getting to see all the people I have so much in common with, whilst all being so very different at the same time. It is what makes each of our blogs so very unique and also means that we are all able to get offered different opportunities. The perfect way that our blogger togetherness was summed up last year was at the very end on the Saturday when there was a tribute to Kerry from Multiple Mummy. I still can’t listen to ‘Firework’ without crying.

So, this week’s poem is the celebration of blogger events. Enjoy!

Forming friendships oh so true
Though, IRL, I’ve not met you
Using the words ‘lovely’ and ‘honey’
Even though you’ve not met me

This is a time to come together
Our relationship imprints forever
Right out there in cyberspace
Though I hardly see your face

That big room, the sea of familiar
I know that face, I do, I’ve seen her
Of people whose lives I already know
I read their blog posts, blow by blow

So much in common, yet so different in ways
It can be overwhelming, become a haze
This year I will take it as it comes
And not loose my head, or come undone

The sessions, the bloggers and the brands
All there to lend a helping hand
To grow your writing, knowledge and tech
I will come away a better blogger I bet!

A sense of camaraderie
Is what blogging friendships mean to me
Lots of hugs and sad and happy tears
And then I’ll look forward to next years

    Fab poem! It’s amazing how much of a community we are in and genuine friendships that form. I genuinely feel very excited about this weekend, will make sure to say hello! I am so shy in real life so a gin and tonic will help with the nerves I think!

    What a fab poem. I’m extremely new to blogging and Im completely overwhelmed by the support and virtual friendship provided by the blogging community. I really feel like I have made some lovely friends whose lives I know really well, yet I have never even met them. Maybe I’ll make it Britmums Live next year and meet some lovely faces. Have a super time.. x
