birmingham bloggers + revelator coffee

revelator coffee is a new addition to the birmingham coffee scene that is not only a stunning visual treat, but a true source of authentic, knowledgeable baristas ready to deliver a one of a kind coffee experience. revelator's focus is on the coffee, and rightly so. as a coffee fanatic, i knew i had to check this place out. and when i did, i decided it was the perfect place for a birmingham bloggers meetup. revelator was so, so kind to host us and let us get to know their brews.

on saturday, january 17th, beth and i invited 12 other birmingham bloggers members to stop by revelator for a casual "coffee chat" to discuss our 2015 blogging resolutions, how to make them, and how we plan to achieve these goals. the chat was a mixture of new and seasoned bloggers alike, which made for great discussion on achieving certain blogging goals.

the wonderful whitney of heart & arrow design helped our bloggers get off on the right foot in 2015 with her custom blogging planner. everyone was so excited about these and got to instagramming them right away! we made little goodie bags for everyone and included some sticky notes and pens to help everyone plan their hearts out.


it made my day to meet some members i hadn't met before! i am so passionately excited about how this community is growing and some days i just can't believe it. i mean yeah, this is the largest city in the state of alabama, but... this many bloggers? really? we're at 115 members now, and we don't seem to be slowing down any time soon. i am so glad we're able to host events like this.

i can't wait for our casual meetup at the new bottle & bone on the 22nd - definitely be on the lookout for a post allllll about this amazing place (they have flights of bacon. yeah. flights.)

  3. Hello Meredith!

    As a former mommy blogger, I always look for new, great blogs to follow. And this year, my family and I will be moving to Birmingham so naturally, when searching for Alabama blogs, yours was one of the first I came across.

    We will be moving for my husband’s job so I will not be working for a little while and have been contemplating creating a new blog to document our move, and new journey in Alabama. I see that the Alabama blogging group is up to over 100 members?! That is awesome, I may have to get really creative if I too, decide to start a local blog.

    This café looks amazing, I hope to run into some of you bloggers there, the food looks delicious, our family is so excited to be moving to what seems like such a wholesome city filled with lots of Crimson Tide Pride 


    1. Hi Christina!

      How exciting! Birmingham is a fantastic place to be right now and it's growing every day. I really try to get Birmingham Bloggers involved in all the new restaurants and events to get people downtown trying new things!

      We've got a lot of fantastic resources for Alabama bloggers. Birmingham Bloggers, of course. Alabama Women Bloggers is also worth checking out. See Jane Write is another Birmingham based group for writers, bloggers, journalists and creatives.

      Please feel free to email me if you have any questions! And do let me know if you start another blog, I'd love to see it!
