On My Way to Seattle for the International Food Bloggers Conference

It’s been almost 3 years since I started this blog.

In that time, my blog has led me to a career in online marketing, introduced me to some great people, and gotten me quite a few free meals.

Now I’m taking another big step in my blogging journey by attending my first food blogging conference this weekend, the International Food Bloggers Conference (IFBC) in Seattle.

I’m not the only Tampa blogger making the cross-country trek, either. I’ll be joined by 7 other ladies from Tampa:

To kick off our time in Seattle, on Friday morning the 8 of us will be doing the Savor Seattle Tour of Pike Place Market — which is a guided walk through the market where you sample 16 different items. I’m pretty stoked for this even though we’re doing it at 9:30 am. I’ve tried the famous Beecher’s mac and cheese at their New York store (it lives up to the hype), but I can’t wait to try it at the original Seattle location at Pike Place Market.

I’ll be spending a lot of time at the conference, but fortunately I’ll also have enough free time to explore the city. If you’ve been to Seattle, I’d love your recommendations on where to eat and what to see! Please leave a comment or shoot me an email with your suggestions.

You can  also follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see what I’m up to in Seattle this weekend. I’ll also be posting about the conference once I’m back home.
