On my best behaviour-My Blog event rules
So it looks like it has finally happened, all my promises of good behaviour and no making a mess on the carpet (again) have all paid off and this week I have a full week of previews and events to attend. Now for me this is a huge thing on its own as I freely admit that I am terribly shy.
Have you seen the Ikea advert? The one where they sing, "You will always find me in the kitchen at parties" (apologies if it is now stuck in your head for the next couple of hours, I know it's in mine) well substitute events for parties and shaking uncontrollably in the corner for kitchen and you kind of get the idea.
So I am following the rules (that I just made up) for the week ahead and hope that it pulls me through unscathed, unembarassed and non-blacklisted.
(Why do I get the feeling PRs are crossing my name off as we speak)
First rule of attending blogger events.
I must remember to say, "Mmmmmmmm. Nice cupcakes" because let's face it, when you don't know what to feed bloggers and you don't want to come across as cheap, nothing says I heart bloggers like a cupcake. Chuck our names on a couple and we are just over the moon, trust me.
I must not say Totes Amazeballs, no-one is going to get the irony behind it and I will end up looking like a Totes cu*t. (short, sweet and to the point I think, perhaps that should have been rule number one)
Remembering my business cards, I paid for them, I might as well use them for the purpose they were intended for and not to drag dirt out from under my fingernails. (note to self, throw those ones away, don't give them out)
Try to find out exactly where I am going BEFORE I get there, finding out the nearest tube station isn't enough, as I found out last week going to see the preview of the new Nougat London range. walking around Oxford Circus tweeting I'm lost, I'm lost is NOT professional, although it seemed to crack some of you lot up and did lead to a free black cab ride. I kid you not, I AM the new Samantha Brick, (Back off haters)
Hmmmmmmm, I seem to have run out of rules. This will not do people.
Help me out here, what advice would you give me this week to get me through looking like a cool blogger type instead of having my picture distributed amongst companies with the heading "shoot on sight"
Let me know.
