Meet the Team

BlogOn has become bigger and bigger each year and therefore Laura has created herself a little pod of minions to help her run the day to day stuff. Some old timers, some newbies, some completely crazy weirdos but all in all a good bunch. Read more about them here and then click their photo to see where they blog. We’ve added in a random fact about each… just because.

The Boss Lady

Laura is the founding member of BlogOn and is the BOSS. She is the one who does the speeches, the organising of those awesome brands and goody bags and all the crazy leg work that goes on behind the scenes. She blogs at Tired Mummy of Two when she’s not doing crazy BlogOn prep.

Random Fact: She was on 4 Weddings and was that one who had the Halloween wedding… go look it up, it’s awesome!

Laura's Right Hand Man

Alice is that tall blonde one with the gob, you’ll probably see her running around like a headless chicken at the Conferences but in real life she’s a blogger at Life as Alice and does all BlogOn’s boring stuff behind the scenes.

Random Fact: She was once on Deal or No Deal and also likes Gin.
