I’m pregnant, yes I am. Our baby, who we call ‘babes’ while in my tummy, is due around the 23d of November :-).

Even though being pregnant means being very tired, I have done quite some geeky things meanwhile. Like visiting London with the Girl Geeks (I only had the suspicion back then that I could be pregnant), like going for an @twunch lunch, like attending the interesting conference ‘Social media in Belgium: building brands via social media and blogs’. Like announcing on Twitter that I’m pregnant. I loved the reactions. Some wished me luck with ‘our tweep’ (Twitter person), so babes already has a nickname: tweep.

While in my tummy, babes has already visited a lot of places and met a lot of people. That’s why I started a set of photos on Flickr, named ‘while waiting for babes’. Too bad I haven’t taken more pictures, but there are still 5 months left ­čÖé .

The pics (with comments in Dutch) can be found via this link or you can have a quick look at the slideshow here:

Soon some text on my blog about the special Girl Geek edition. For those who can’t wait: Surf to the website at which it all took place: girlygeekyshopping.

What does it feel like to rediscover two loves in one day? I can tell you: great. And it didn’t stop there…

Those two loves?

Actually, it’s ‘journalist for two days’. Frank from Frankwatching (one of the leading Dutch marketing blogs, with over 20.000 subscribers alone (RSS, newsletter, Twitter)) has asked me to report about the DNA event in Brussels for his blog.

Couldn’t and didn’t want to say no, so I took a two day leave at work. For quite a few years already, I have been attending conferences like DNA from a visitor’s perspective. But now it’s time to go the journalist way. Again, because in a far away past┬á – not that far but it surely feels like that- I used to be a journalist, not the project manager I am today. Curious whether I’ll be able to undust my reporting skills fast enough. But I’m also convinced it will work out just fine.

  • Last Wednesday: geeking with the girls. Lovely, as usual. Especially lovely, ’cause it was the first time with no males at all. They were banned. Yes, they were. Nivea sponsored this edition and gave us all some great beauty tips ├ánd a make-over. Nothing for real males in other words.┬áSorry that the dinner’s heart and soul, Clo, couldn’t make it. She fell ill. Next dinner is on the 10th of March. Topic is ‘mobile’.

I have had quite a winter nap when it comes to this blog. However, here I am again.

To let you know that I’ve been asked by Frank from Frankwatching to cover the Digital News Affairs event in Brussels for his blog. To be honest, I am honoured and thrilled at the same time. It means a lot to me to get the trust of such a blog authority.

I bought a poken from Kevin de Mulder or Clopin. Haven’t been able to get it yet, since┬áKevin doesn’t really live next door and since I’ve been more ill than healthy in 2009.

However: next week, I have to be in Antwerp -where Kevin lives-, I will have overcome my disease ( yes, I will ­čśë┬á ) and therefore, I can finally see my poken and – more importantly -try it out. Do you have a┬ápoken already? And what’s it like?

poken

Trendsspotting has done a great job visualising the trends for 2009 concerning social media, mobile and online marketing. They have asked influencers and experts what they expect this year. Love it!
