As we discussed in yesterday's blog post, I believe that Instagram is the new business card . And, therefore, we need to ensure that our Instagram accounts display a polished, professional vibe. Here are 3 things every business Instagrammer should do. 1. Have a cohesive look If you were creating your business cards, you wouldn't have bright green, burnt orange, and baby blue colors visually attacking your viewer, would you? (I mean, unless that's your signature look, then, hey, go for it!). When a potential client lands on your page it is really great if they can get a 5 second overview that...

I recently heard a friend say, "Instagram is the new business card." And after some thought, I completely agree. When I am out at an event and I meet someone with similar business interests my first question, with phone in hand, is "What's your Instagram handle?"

I was born in Starkville Missippi, the heart of Bulldog Country (Go Dawgs!). My grandmother on my mother's side has lived in this lovely little college town my entire life. Just hearing the word Starkville conjours up thoughts of the giant magnolia tree we used to play house in, the pond where we could spend hours feeding (and running from) the ducks, and most of all, the warm, comforting invitation always present in my grandmother's kitchen. This November marks a year since the purchase of my first home. The boxes are almost all unpacked... with a few excpetions of itmes we've yet to go...

So... about last night. I ate some of the best food of my life, drank delicious wine, and met fun and interesting people at the first ever Food Party Bham .
