Social Fresh

by Meghann on February 21, 2011

Greetings from Social Fresh in Tampa!


I love Social Media conferences! It’s probably the one time where it’s not considered rude to be tweeting/ blogging during presentations. There are probably 200 people in this room and 85% of then have their laptops out. And the #SocialFresh twitter feed? It’s exploding right now!

Today’s sessions didn’t begin until noon, which was nice because it gave us plenty of time this morning for the 2 hour trek from Orlando to Tampa.


The amazing Katy was our driver while Kiran and I played the role of chatty passengers.

I snacked on a trail mix of Pretzel Goldfish Pretzels and Peanuts on the way.


Thanks to the non-existent President’s Day traffic we made excellent time getting to Tampa.


Love the Social Fresh name tags! πŸ™‚


I had this whole ‘business’ outfit picked out for today, but at the very last minute decided to go with a look that was more ‘me’ and a heck of a lot more comfortable.


It doesn’t scream professional, but it screams I’m young, I’m hip, and I ‘get’ current trends, which I believe believe are the makings of a great social media expert. πŸ™‚

Lunch wasn’t included today, so Kiran, Katy, and I hit up the hotel sports bar for a quick bite to eat during one of the breaks.


I had the 1/2 chicken sandwich and 1/2 salad combo to tame my growling tummy.


The next session is starting back up!

I have lots to share later about Facebook, but until then can follow me on twitter at @MealsAndMiles or the #SocialFresh hashtag for the latest updates.


Be sure to check out my latest post for Attune. This month I talk about What Matters the Most is What’s On the Inside!

I love the boots — and to me comfort is a big deciding factor in what I wear.

Have fun at the conference, looks like a great time!

I’ve been enjoying reading you and Katy’s tweets during class, I mean, in between classes. πŸ˜‰ Who reads twitter in class? πŸ˜‰

I really love your boots. Where did you get them?

Also–really enjoyed following your tweets today! Although, I probably didn’t understand a whole lot of them. πŸ™‚

I know this is going to sound weird, and maybe I have told you this before, but I love that you eat meat. I know you pick veggie options a lot too (which I love as well) but a chicken sandwich is awesome, especially when you are training for a race…and I know there are healthy ways to do it without meat, but its refreshing to see a blogger do that. It makes me love reading your blog even more. Keep it up!

I’ve been enjoying your tweets!

A conference without lunch? Boooo. I except lunch AND snacks when I go to a conference. πŸ™‚

Glad you had a fun time and I totally agree about the outfit, you look adorable!

This sounds like a great conference! Do you know if they have one in Canada?

Sorry I was bombarding you with questions to your tweets. I wish I could have gone to an event like this. I kind of volunteered to become in charge of social media for my company and have no idea what Im doing!

I love your outfit choice today! So cute!
