We're completely thrilled to announce the launch of Mumsnet BlogFest 2012 - a jam-packed event to celebrate everything there is to love about blogging, and help you get the most from what you post.

The event will take place on Saturday 10 November at a slinky venue in central London, and we've got a fabulous roster of bloggers, writers, and techie experts lined up - including a keynote speech from the lovely Caitlin Moran. She'll be joined by Jeanette Winterson, Zoe Williams , Liz Jones <gasp!> and a host of others, including (but not limited to!) our very own MmeLindor, Eliza Gray, Mrs Tiggywinkle, Cath Elliott, MmeGuillotine, Slummy single mummy and Cari Rosen.

There'll be sessions on finding your voice and improving your writing skills; dealing with trolls and related nasties; drawing the line between public and private; and a kazillion other useful and intriguing subjects - have a look at the programme for full details.

There'll also be plenty of opportunities to chat to fellow bloggers, or make new friends, over a delicious lunch at the top of the Millbank Tower - plus a glass or two of something lovely at the end of the day. And don't forget to grab an expert for one-to-one advice on everything blog-related in our Blog Clinic, which will run throughout the day.

We canvassed 300 of our bloggers on the sessions and speakers they'd like to see at BlogFest, but there are still plenty of speakers to be announced. So if you've a yearning to hear from someone in particular, do let us know here and we'll do our best to oblige.

The event is open to bloggers and non-bloggers alike, so if you haven't yet started blogging but want to dip a toe in the water - or simply want to hear some great speakers - do join us. If you're quick off the mark, you can catch the early bird offer (£50 per ticket - a third off!). So help us spread the word on Facebook and Twitter (#mumsnetblogfest) - and don't forget to tell your friends, your colleagues and your mum - the more the merrier!

I can no longer make it as husband is away on a stag do and I have a school event I can't get out of.

I have managed to find somebody to buy my ticket off me but do I need to notify anybody at Mumsnet? Name badges etc etc?

Thanks MummyBarrow Shame you can no longer come but glad the ticket has been lovingly passed on! If you could get the person you've sold your ticket to to email bloggers@mumsnet.com with contact details then we can make sure they are the one we send any info to ahead of the event. Thanks.
