Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

What Do You Want To Know At CybHer?

cybher, geek, chic, inspire, innovate,
CybHer is the first all-inclusive female blogger event of its kind in the UK and is being held on Saturday 12th May 2012 (the last few tickets are still available at the time of writing).  I've been asked to speak in one of the 'Geek' sessions on the day.

Now, rather than me tell you things that you may not need or want to know, I'm inviting you to guide my session so that I deliver the content that is going to help YOU.  The session is aimed at beginner and intermediate bloggers who use the Blogger platform, so ideal for people just starting out with their blog or who have been blogging for a short while.

My session details are:
"Ask A Blogger Geek"
2.00pm - 2.45pm
The room will hold 30 delegates.  
You don't need to book for the session - you just turn up.  I hope at least one person attends or it will just be me sobbing into Twitter on my phone... 

The session will be very informal with every opportunity to interrupt and ask questions about blogging on the Blogger platform.  For me, blogging is all about writing from the heart, creating discussions and being individual.  Your blog is your space to do that and I hope that I can give you some pointers that will set you in good stead.  We can talk about how to set up a blog on the Blogger platform, the new blogging tools that are being introduced (including S.E.O facilities), which widgets are 'must haves' and anything else you can think of.

You can get in touch prior to the session in the following ways:
See you there!
