There was a great lineup of sessions. Admittedly I hadn’t looked in too much detail what was going on as the only thing I had decided on was to attend Luke’s YouTube session – Blended Parent Network solidarity!
In the morning I attended Tim’s session which was pretty much Facebook and Twitter advertising. The Facebook advertising bit was great.. some top tips from Tim! Twitter information was good too but I don’t see me doing much with it to be honest.
In the afternoon I attended Sian’s YouTube editing session. She didn’t go into much detail of how to use different editing programmes (I mean there’s too many programmes isn’t there?). Instead, she focused on how to edit a vlog with different transitions, different camera angles etc. She did mention two new-to-me editing software that I’m interested in trying though.
Then of course I attended Luke’s YouTube session. It was fab! He threw in enough swear words to make it relaxed. Luke certainly tells it how it is which is refreshing. Always love hearing it as it is. This fella knows his stuff! One of his top tips was to upload your video to Facebook as well as YouTube and my Facebook video is getting more views for sure! Oh and the video…..
I had intended on hitting the Accounting for Bloggers session but found sanctuary in the games room with David and Luke. It was incredibly hot at the museum and the games room had air conditioning! Also some fab games!
Oh there were so many brands in attendance that I’m really sorry if I don’t name al of them. I got chatting to a few including Stag Bakeries who had some delicious snacks on offer. The seaweed crackers/oatcakes were surprisingly good!
Of course no BlogOn conference is complete without a cake and this year’s cake was a big massive Drumstick shaped cake to celebrate Swizzles Matlow‘s Drumstick reaching 60 years old! Who’d have thought that the simple lollipop was so old?! The cake even tasted like the lollipop! There was also plenty of free Drumsticks as well… might have eaten too many!

The absolute best part of Blog On MSI 2017 was finally getting to meet some fellow Blended Parent Network folk… or the #BPNSquad as I call us! It was so great to meet David (DadVWorld), Luke (The Woodhouse Life) and Nigel (DIY Daddy).
Also it was great to see Anca again! We had lots of fun with the EventsBooth photo booth. We seem to like large sunglasses and pink wigs! 😀
Not one, not two but THREE goody bags were given out at this year’s conference. I’ve not had a chance to look through it in detail yet so will be posting about that again.
And I made a little video….
