We Came, We Saw, We Cybher-ed

cybher-woo

Woo! Cybher!

We are very tired but we survived Cybher! Do you like our special Cybher haircuts?

Jae & El – not normally this purple, honest

First super surprise of the day was that El’s entry to the bag design competition had been successful. An actual design she made is now a real thing! And check out the cute little moustache keyring.

cybher-bag-designThank you to Leather Satchel Co for creating this.

We were super chuffed to meet up with the amazing Cath AKA The Kraken Wakes. Jae says El can read Cath’s blog when she’s 18 as it is very sweary.

Also, sweets

Just like last year El did some sketches. Here are a few to give you a flavour of the day:

We even got to cuddle one!

During the first session there was mention of a Google bomb. We don’t know what this is but it sounds immense.

BOOM!

Lunch was nice but every thing was teeny weeny!

The important stuff

True that

El was sceptical at something one of the speakers said…

twitter-intelligent

So said a lawyer so it must be true

Another thing that El found a bit odd…

awesome-redundant

We learned about starting a business

Why can’t it last forever?

Also Sian (the wonderful lady who runs Cybher) is so amazing that El just has to say it…

Worth pointing out

Are you Cybher? We are

Next week is the tip top blogging conference they call

Cybher (WOO!)

Leave us a comment if you are going! Here’s a little video we made to introduce ourselves.

If you are going to Cybher for the first time, check out our post from last year which will tell you all about it.

El drew special Cybher pictures last year and intends to do so again this year so watch out for them apples.

And if you are bringing a baby to Cybher but need your hands free or to go for a wee, simply tap either of us on the shoulder and say:

“You are Eljae and I claim my 10 minutes’ babysitting”

and we will be happy to oblige.

They don't teach us this stuff in school!

They don’t teach us this stuff in school!

Very Excited, yes we are

Cybher – our day in sketches

El and Jae at Cybher!

We are all pooped out today because we spent yesterday at Cybher, the blogging conference for women (and girls) who blog.

El was mega chuffed to meet another El – it was superstar blogger El from A Thrifty Mrs, as seen on Superscrimpers and Harry Hill’s TV Burp. WE LOVE YOU EL.

El, meet El

We also met the guys from the Leather Satchel Company, which was great because El takes one of their satchels to school every day – we love them too.

And we met the Disney people and told them the world needs More Muppets, so hopefully they will take heed.

At lunchtime we had a crisp shaped like a heart! And other stuff too of course.

The crisp of love

We liked the pink lights, sweeties on the table and the cool bags.

El recorded the day in sketches, and here are some of them:

What’s it called again?

We loved Biba‘s talk about apps, and even more we loved the bunny hair clip in her hair. At least we think it was a hair clip, and not a tiny baby bunny perched very still.

That’s one appy bunny

Everywhere you looked, people were tweeting and iPading at the tables:

Sketching is like tweeting from the past

El had no iPhone so she had to make her own:

No batteries required

We went to some workshops and picked up some great blogging tips:

They don’t teach us this stuff in school!

Everybody we met was really nice, it was like a big friendly community:

Oh yes we are

We found out lots of things about technology:

Make friends with your tech

We learned how to re-design your blog:

Bloggybloggyblogblog.com that is

A big hello to all the lovely bloggers we met at Cybher, thanks to Sian for putting it all together.

Oh yeah!

El & Jae 🙂
Cybher-riffic!

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
  3. El loves The Apprentice, Blackadder, Watchdog and The Gadget Show. Jae loves The Office: An American Workplace, 24 and Deadwood.
  4. El has read more books at age 12 than Jae has read in her whole life
  5. We love nerds.

Please leave a comment and say hello to us on the day if you are going to Cybher. You can meet more people who’ll be there at the Meet & Greet page here.
