In two weekends time I will be attending Blogtacular, a conference about blogging for creative types. I’m not sure if I’m quite creative enough to really go, but the line up of speakers and workshops are too good to miss – and there’s a party hosted by Pinterest! And a dinner with everyone the night before! And a photowalk at seven in the morning! I think I’m going to come home very, very tired, but also super inspired. I’m so excited to stand in the corner of a room too shy to say hello chat to some of my favourite bloggers that every day I do a little squee every time I think about it. To celebrate, here’s a few things for sale from some of the people who will either be speaking, selling or are a sponsor at Blogtacular. I’m also going to come away from this conference very poor too!

Some (non-blogtacular related) internet reads for the weekend for you:

  • Post general election colouring-in
  • How photo filters affect online engagement
  • I fooled millions into thinking chocolate helps weight loss. This is a fascinating read.
  • Reality doesn’t exist until we measure it.
  • For those who haven’t read it yet, Alistair Campbell’s piece on Charles Kennedy is superb and touching and a great tribute. I met him once (Charles Kennedy, not Alistair Campbell) and he was one of the nicest, politest MPs to wander down to our offices and I found myself rather starstruck in his presence. He will be missed by many, really was one of the good guys in Parliament.

    Have a good weekend everyone!
