Hello and welcome to the I Love Memphis blog. I’m Holly Whitfield, and I hope you decide to stay awhile.
Here are a few things you might want to know about this site:
The blog is meant to be a resource for what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but let me tell you, there is so much more to this place. This blog aims to show that.
Kerry Crawford was the first I Love Memphis blogger from 2009 to 2013. During her tenure, she helped ignite a passion for Memphis by sharing parts of the city that are lovable. In September 2013, I came on board. Like Kerry did, I run this blog full time for the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau.
It’s important to tell people that you love them, but the real lovin’ comes from learning more about what makes them tick, supporting them despite their rough edges, and just having fun with them. I bet you can see where I’m going with this. (Hint: replace “them” with “Memphis”.)
I spend my days searching the city and talking to as many people as I can, but I need your help, too. Tell me what’s going on in your neighborhood. Tell me about the things you find that are offbeat and off-the-beaten-path.
If you have questions about Memphis, I can help you with that. You can leave a comment on the blog, or scroll down to see how to get in touch.
