Seeing stars

I’m sitting in the foyer of the Sebel waiting with fluttering nerves for the Digital Parents conference to start. My stomach is doing flip flops and I’m wishing I had worn one of the other three dresses I tried on this morning.

Every now and then I look up and see a famous person. Well, kind of…

I was typing away a few minutes ago and looked up to see a familiar face walk past. “I know her” I thought to myself. I scratched my head trying to work out where I knew the face. “Is she famous?” I wondered.

Then it dawned on me, it was a blogger I follow. Sarah from abeachcottage.

Now, everywhere I look I’m seeing these ‘stars’. Blogging stars. People who are so familiar to me, but we’ve never met. I feel as if I know them and their lives because I read so much about them.

There’s always that awkward moment when you look at them and realise you don’t actually know them, hand raised ready to wave then quickly snapped down by your side. *Awkward*

I’m really looking forward to the day ahead. Nerves be gone!

      Thanks :) It was so much fun and I learnt a bucket load about social media. Now to find the time to implement it all…

      I’m already planning next year. There was discussion of it perhaps being a 2 day event in 2013 – I hope so.

      I met so many ‘stars’ and was completely awestruck by their fabulous-ness!

    Wow! It must be so exciting to be at a conference like DPCON! I’m sure everyone puts just as much energy into not-waving. ;-) x
