Atlanta Food Blog Forum

Hey Atlanta! Can you believe I’ve never ventured outside of the ATL airport?! Well, it’s about time I explore one of the most popular food destinations and home of some of my favorite food bloggers.

With the help of Gwen Patesi of Bunkycooks and my bloggin’ buddies Diane Cu and Todd Porter of White on Rice Couple, we’re hosting a 1-day Food Blog Forum on September 11th, 2010.

(photos are from Food Blog Forum Los Angeles earlier this year)

If you’re in the area, would love to meet you and have you participate! We’ll be doing an intensive full day sessions focusing mainly on 3 areas: Blogging as a Business, Food Styling and Food Photography.

Diane, Todd and I are so excited to teach all that we know, show you our secrets to how we work, let you play with some of the tools that we use in our everyday craft. If you’re interested in building a better blog, creating a business out of blogging/social media and want step-by-step, hands-on learning in how we make our food look so darn pretty, this is definitely for you!

Author and former Martha Stewart kitchen manager, Virginia Willis will also be speaking with me about Building Your Brand.

    You must go to Mccormick and Schmicks, love, love, love the food there. If you have time check out Glady’s and Ron’s Chicken and Waffles also another favorite.

    Very cool – great to see you taking this show on the road. Any hopes of hitting the mid-Atlantic any time soon?

    Jaden oh how I wish you would come to Canada, Toronto? I am green with envy, wish I could attend.

    Oh no! I’m so sad I’ll be out of town. Guess I’ll just have to wait for the next Atlanta venture. :)

  8. Wish I could attend and soak up all the wisdom you have to share. Any way you could post highlights for the rest of us who dearly wished we could have attended? :(

    Figures that this is happening the week after I’m in Atlanta for Dragon*Con. :P Don’t think my poor little car could make that drive two weeks in a row. Hope it goes well, though!

    Can’t wait! I’ll definitely be seeing you in two weeks. Is it possible to buy a pass just for Friday night’s party for a friend?
