On Sunday we co-hosted the wrap party for the second annual Southern Blog Society Conference, put together by Jessica Camarata of My Style Vita and Cathy Anderson of Poor Little It Girl. Dozens of fashion and lifestyle bloggers joined at the W Buckhead to sip champagne and exchange trade secrets about the wild, and yes glam, world of fashion blogging. Here, five new bloggers we discovered at the conference, and why you should follow them now.

1. Waiting on Martha. A beautiful space filled with recipes, home decor inspiration, and outfit ideas. It all comes to life in the blog’s e-store, where you can shop from Thomas Paul tabletoppers, Jonathan Adler pillows, and Fleabag makeup pouches.
Homebase: Atlanta, Georgia
What you get: A sleek aesthetic with quirky accents.
Favorite recent post:  This charming tutorial on preparing for house guests. Airbnb hosts, read up.

Homebase: Miami, Florida
What you get: Bright, colorful preppy looks and sunny locales.
Recent favorite: A sweet, summery take on the midi skirt.

    These people will update their site, add new features and expand thecontributions as they go forward. Expect to learn the proper operation of basic firefighting equipment such as fire extinguishers and built-in fire hoses in the building. The state government buildings, hospitals, shopping centers, supermarkets, universities, office buildings, and factories are quickly adapting and installing Ozilite flameless cigarette lighters which allow smokers to smoke in a single area.

  13. games just like flappy bird

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is
    popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any
    methods to help stop content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Right now it appears like Expression Engine is the preferred
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read)
    Is that what you are using on your blog?
