Myself (Becky) and Pin from the MRF Comms Dept met a group of fantastic Mummy bloggers (and a Daddy blogger) from around the UK at a Media Academy in Birmingham yesterday.

The aim of the day was to inform the group about the dangers of meningitis, talk about the importance of vaccination and dispel any common myths. Throughout the session the mummy bloggers were furiously tweeting about the facts and figures they were given and as a result there were over 21, 900 people who received tweets about meningitis during the day which was amazing..

The day closed with the 3 UK Meningitis charities (MRF, Meningitis Trust and Men UK) asking the experts  how to engage the blogging community in the fight against the disease and what would interest their readers. MRF of course asked for the mummy and daddy bloggers to promote our online petition which has helped us break through the 8,000 barrier today.. Keep spreading the word!

Here’s a list of the fab bloggers we met – take a look at what they have to say:

Feeling quite inspired by them all to get blogging and tweeting so watch out when I get back from my holiday in Florida...
