I love the community.
I love how there is someone there whatever the time of day.
I love how there is someone there who's been through whatever I may be going through at that one particular time.
I love that I am making new friends all the time.
I love how these friends are able to recommend, advise and reassure.
I love how I have a constant document of my son's early years.
I love how one post brings back a thousand memories. A few words bring smells, feelings and emotions flooding back to me. It's almost as if I have that newborn in my arms all over again.
That's a gift.
Blogging to me, is a gift.
And now I'm looking for a gift.
Well not quite a gift as such. Maybe a favour? Or a helping hand? Or a mutual relationship with a wonderful brand who can also reap the benefits of A Whole Nine Months.
I am looking for sponsorship for BritMums live.
BritMums Live is the UK biggest social media conference and blogger event.
It takes place over two days; 20 & 21 June 2014.
It is where lifestyle bloggers and social influences meet and socialise, network their brands, improve their skills and fire their creativity.
More information about the event can be found HERE.
So what am I looking for?
Ideally, sponsorship to help fund fund this event. With only working part-time, planning a wedding and funding a toddler's pretty heavy obsession with toy trucks then we've not got much cash to spare at the minute.
I live in Yorkshire so obviously the geographics will involve a fairly long train journey to London, the cost of which I'm currently unsure. This will also involve a one night stay in London which will be approximately £150.
I will also require a ticket which are £98.03.
In return for the sponsorship I will be offering a very generous package. This can be negotiated but will include something along the lines of:
An advert on my homepage with direct link to your website for 12 months.
A post introducing your brand as my Britain's sponsor.
Your brand name mentioned in all my tweets and posts regarding BritMums.
I will use your product/wear your item at BritMums if applicable.
To review your product and feature a piece on A Whole Nine Months with link back to your website.
To feature your logo & or contact details on my business cards which I will hand out at the event.
Host a competition/giveaway on my blog.
As I mentioned above, these can be tailored and I will consider any other ideas of sponsorship.
I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you x
