Southern Living and the Southern Coterie Summit

I've got something exciting to share. At least I think some of you will be excited about it. You may have heard me say my favorite thing about blogging is getting to meet and connect with all sorts of wonderful folks. May 1-3 is another opportunity for this, in the form of an event like none I've ever heard of before and I'm hoping you will consider attending.

The event is a conference, The Southern C Summit and it's being hosted by the fabulous ladies Cheri & Whitney who founded the southern social network, The Southern Coterie, for which I am a contributor.

It's being held in beautiful Jekyll Island, Georgia and offers attendees a chance to connect with southern bloggers, brands and businesses for a variety of learning and networking opportunities.

The schedule (which can be seen here) includes social events, educational sessions, panel discussions (one that I'm even speaking at), and keynote presentations from some amazing folks, including Erin Shaw Street of Southern Living, Carrie Morey of Callie's Charleston Biscuits and Haskell Harris, most recently at Garden & Gun! I'm still pinching myself to be included in this lineup.

This is the kind of event I've been waiting for ever since I started blogging. I've attended other blog conferences, but never quite found my niche. I'm not a mommy blogger. I'm not a fashion blogger. I'm not even really a food blogger. I'm a southern blogger and until now, there wasn't a specific event tailored just to me. And I couldn't be more excited!

And you should not miss it!
