Blogcamp Newbie

I am going to Blogcamp and my heart is just beating too fast just typing this. Like I will have a heart attack or something!

A big part of me wants to back out and not go but there are parts that is really curious on whats going to happen there. What will I learn and who will I see. I am going of course (at least that is the idea). I am so shy so I dont know if I can manage to talk to anyone. I am so scared that I cant start a conversation and if anyone will be ready to listen to my little voice.

So this is something big for someone so small (Me). And I will go because I dont want to have a 'what if' moment. I want to learn. I want to take my blog a level higher if I can.

I have my bag ready. My camera is in there, a notebook and a pen and a magazine for when I am waiting. I think I would need some of those kalms meds. But I wont go there yet.
Coming to this event is me overcoming my fear! Right about now my hands are getting cold and sweaty. I can only imagine what would physically happen to me tomorrow! Will I be able to move my feet and walk to the venue?

If you will see me few steps away from the venue and I am not moving can you please drag me or something. Thats me freezing over in fear!

But I am excited too. Heart beating means I am alive! I can (hopefully) do this. Finish the whole day without fainting.

I am so excited to be alive and attending the blogcamp in Bristol even if I am awfully awfully really really nervous.

Well you are braver than me hon as I haven't even attempted to go to any blog events yet, I always come up with excuses or chicken out as just don't have the guts to do it and worry about talking to people or being on my own. Good luck and hope it goes well lovely! Xx (Caroline, Becoming a SAHM)

You will have the best time Merlinda, honestly. Once those nerves have vanished, you'll get into the swing of it. Just start saying Hi to folks and see where it takes you x

I do hope you're having a brilliant time. I've been to a couple of BlogCamps and really enjoyed them, and took plenty away from them. Have fun x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

You are braver than I am. I haven't the guts to go to any events. I would be feeling the same.

It was brilliant to finally meet you - and have a hug! I am so sorry I did not get a chance to have that chat that we promised each other though!! Definitely next time.
