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 Set in World War I-era Apalachicola, Florida, 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 t. Living 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?
