If you're like me you're always looking for a new blog to follow. This week I added a new site to my list of recommended reading: The Daily South

Launched by Southern Living magazine, The Daily South is a new blog that Southern Living editors hope will become the go-to destination for Southern culture, food, home, travel and style.  

As a Southern fried feminist I'm not only dedicated to empowering women but also celebrating and promoting the South. 

And as Erin Shaw Street points out in the inaugural post, "The South is hot." And we're not just talking summer weather. From our award-winning chefs and emerging musicians to our decorators and trendsetters, the nation just can’t get enough of the South. 

But you don't have to take my word for it. The Daily South has all the proof you'll need. 

Be sure to check out The Bees Knees, a list of things to watch for in the South this week. This will likely be a regular staple of the blog. This week's list features Man in the Blue Moon, a new novel by Alabama-based Michael MorrisSet in World War I-era ApalachicolaFlorida, the story follows Ella Wallace as she struggles to defend her land, home, and peace after her husband disappears. The book is set to be released Friday, Aug. 17.

Oh, how I wish I had time to drive over to Atlanta this weekend. Also on the list is the world’s first all-female street-art conferenceLiving Walls, an organization that promotes urban art in Atlanta, hosts its second The City Speaks conference, August 15-19. This year’s conference will feature film screenings, block parties, and a focus on female street artists with 27 women taking over the walls of Atlanta. 

So swing on over to The Daily South and let me know what you think. 

What do you love about the South? 


  1. Thanks Javacia! You're one of the people who make me happy to live in the South, and to write about it :) Looking forward to continuing to explore our awesome region together.

  2. I spent two years living in North Carolina as an undergraduate college student and I loved it! The boo joint is relocating to Charlotte next week, so I'll be traveling to the South much more than I initially planned.

    What I loved most about the region was the sincerity and genuineness of the people. I'm a born-and-raised East Coaster, so friendly strangers are difficult to find. Southern hospitality is real and alive.

    Thanks for sharing the deets on the blog!
