The Blog Societies was founded in 2013 by two fashion bloggers looking for a community where they can grow, learn and interact with other bloggers in their area.  As blogging friends, they quickly learned that having someone in the same industry as you helps you grow, adapt and build a better blog with the support of others.  In an effort to help their own blogging community as well as others in the Southeast, Southern Blog Society was created. After three years and 400 members later, Southern Blog Society expanded nationally to The Blog Societies in the fall of 2015.

Cathy Anderson is the voice behind the personal style and beauty blog, Poor Little It Girl. Recently named one of the “Top 5 Style Bloggers” by PEOPLE magazine and highlighted as a Washingtonian Style Setter in 2015, the former NYC fashion magazine editor turned DC-resident continues to share her shopping tips that all “poor” girls can actually afford.

Jessica Camerata is the blogger behind My Style Vita – a lifestyle website with a focus on outfit inspiration, food and drink recipes, home decor and more. Jessica has been named “Best Blogger of 2015” by Jezebel Magazine and has been featured on Style Me Pretty, West Elm and Daily Candy.
