Before I started blogging, I was an avid reader of other people’s blogs. I started by mainly reading the American ones, and they’re fantastic and all, but it’s sometimes difficult to relate to, and feel like part of a community that’s on the other side of the Atlantic.I’d read about these amazing bloggers conferences that they had and think “Wow, if only I could go to one of those!”. Then I stared to come across more and more English Mummy blogs, and little by little started subscribing, tweeting, and generally feeling part of a community of bloggers who can share common experiences, as well as a distaste for our British weather!
A few months ago, I started to notice my Tweeps talking about CyberMummy 2011, and decided to have a look into it, thinking that it might just be something I’d be into. And it was. Very into. But whose got that sort of money to spend on a day out for themselves, right? I talked myself out of wanting to go, citing lack of finances, and put the idea to the back of my mind. But it sat there, like a little seed, growing and growing, tweaking my jealousy gland every time someone talked about how excited they were to have found sponsorship.
My other issue is that I’ve never willingly spent a whole day away from Sausage, and I would miss her terribly. I’d got myself convinced that she’d never forgive me if I left her for a whole day. But she would, wouldn’t she? She’d relish the chance to spend a whole day with Daddy, I’m sure.
Now I want to go. I’d LOVE to go. But I don’t have sponsorship, and I’ve left it seriously late to find it.
So here’s the deal. I don’t need accommodation as I live an hour outside of London. All I need is the cost of the ticket and the cost of a train ticket (£22.00). In exchange for sponsorship, I will dress head-to-toe in clothes emblazoned with your logo, have a tattoo of your label done in a conspicuous place on my body, and name my next child after you. I will also offer advertising space on my blog, blog posts about how wonderful you and your company are, plus any product reviews that you may wish me to conduct. I don’t know if it’s becoming obvious, but I really want to go to this conference.
Please feel free to read through my blog and see the high quality posts that I produce (for high quality read “often sarcastic, mainly self-deprecating”).
Hmm, I’m sure I’m not doing a very good job of selling myself, or my blog here, but I’m not used to begging. I normally just stamp my foot and have a tantrum.
Also, if it sways you, or tugs at your heartstrings at all, it’s worth knowing that CyberMummy falls exactly a week after my birthday. Wouldn’t you love to buy me a gift?!
So yeah, if anyone would like to sponsor me, get in touch! You can contact me through the contact tab at the top of the page, through Twitter (@jaynecrammond), or good old fashioned email (jaynecrammond at g mail dot com).
Thanks for reading.

The bit about being emblazoned in logos was probably serious, though.
