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

Twitter ID: Only Jae is on Twitter @joannemallon

Introducing Jae.

Hey, it's Jae!

1. Jae often disappears to a strange place called a ‘gym’. I suspect brain washing.
2. Jae comes from Belfast and says things like “Wee” “Eejit” and “What the effin jeffin?” That last one is not Irish. She makes up words too.
3. Her favourite type of choccie is DARK! LIKE HER SOUL!!!!!!!!
4. Her glasses fire lazer beams. And leprechauns.
5. Once a year she disappears into a dark cave filled with dentists. And dreams. And  a crocodile. BUT NO BOURBON BISCUITS!!!!!!!!!
