Talking with Tami Blogger Luncheon at Strip

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a blogger luncheon hosted by celebrity blogger Tami who blogs at Talking with Tami.


She shared some of her tried and true recommendations for building a successful blog and brand with us while we noshed on our choice of appetizer, entree and dessert at Strip in Atlantic Station.



I finally got a chance to meet fellow blogger Lynn who blogs over at LaLynn’s in real life…


The most important tip that stood out to me and one that I had not heard from other bloggers was…Make yourself memorable, show your personality and don’t be afraid to network and mingle. I think that can be a hard one. It is so easy to have personality online but translating that into real life is harder for some than others…I’ve come across a few in my dealings and it is really awwwwwkwaaaaard!

She handed out some great tips and was very open in letting us know how she got her start blogging. There is something to like about a person who is willing to share the wealth, which is exactly what she did.

For lunch I enjoyed a salad, Jerk seasoned salmon with rice, black beans and Mango relish. This was absolutely delicious. If you get a chance to swing by Strip this entree is a must have. I finished off my lunch with a nice piece of cheesecake.



This was an awesome event and Tami let us know that this will be a monthly occurrence. Always a fun time when you get to meet new people, and learn new things. I’m looking forward to the next event. If you are in the Atlanta area make sure to follow Tami’s blog so you can get the scoop on when her next event will be held.

    I love people who spread the wealth. It’s so hard to find bloggers like that because most have an every man for himself personality. And I agree it’s important to be memorable and relateable in person.

    Great tip! I often struggle in the networking area. But I am slowly letting go of my “hermit” side and embracing being social. Great read and nice pics! 😉
