El and Jae’s Cybher Meet and Greet

El and Jae say hello!

El and Jae are really excited to be going to Cybher, the all-female blogging conference in London on 12 May. If you are going please say hello to us – we are easy to spot as we will both have our glasses on and we are probably the only mother and daughter bloggers.

El says:

I have never been to a conference before because I am only 12. I have this terrible feeling that everyone will look down their noses at me and be really snooty but mum says bloggers are friendly. I am interested in meeting people and hearing the talks but a bit scared – mum says there will be hundreds of bloggers there. I hope mum doesn’t do anything too embarassing like start dancing.

Jae says:

I love being around a bunch of techy women, it’s so inspiring. I am looking forward to meeting a big mix of bloggers and learning a lot at the various session. When I was a little girl my mum took me on the first peace marches in Belfast and I’ve never forgotten this. I hope that Cybher has a big impact on El and opens her eyes to what women can do. I wasn’t planning to dance but now that somebody has mentioned it…

Names: El and Jae. We do have other names which you will have to guess. Clue: It’s not Rumpelstiltskin

Blog: Eljae.com Jae also has another blog which she has been writing for 5 years called Joanne the Coach

Twitter ID: Only Jae is on Twitter @joannemallon

Height: Jae is 5’4″ El is pocket sized

Hair: Short & blonde, long & strawberry blonde

Five things you should know about us…

  1. We love Glee!, Brighton, Doctor Who and wearing glasses
  2. We have a cat called Dennis who is very grumpy and likes to bite our toes but we love him really

    Look forward to meeting you and El. Such a good idea to introduce her to Cybher.
    Like I mentioned on twitter, I was part of your mediawomenuk group and have known about you for years. So if I start chatting to you like we’re old friends, please don’t be alarmed!
