Seattle Foodie-ish.

Often seemingly out of nowhere ~ my foodie self appears. Enthralled by the local food scene, and the community that surrounds it, a mood will strike and I will find myself hearting up Instagram posts ranging from sugar coated baked goods to health/environment focused Meat Free Monday meals (say that one five times fast).

A few months back, I attended a Seattle Foodies Instameet and since then I have been thinking more about the role of food and community building in the age of Instagram.

I have followed a number of local foodies and have begun to seek out unique cuisine in my travels. I have learned new hashtag lingo. I am delighted to see that a good food snap can lead to an interesting cross cultural or cross neighborhood dialogue/meetup.

Naturally, when I learned a Pie Instameet at A La Mode Pies was going to be led by my delightful friend Seattle Dessert Geek aka Jess Tupper I knew this was a chance to be part take part in something especially delicious. Every time I hang w/ Jess I seem to find myself consuming food that is wonderful, unique, and memorable… Also, I like pie ~ basically because I’m human.

Call It Like You See It
The Blue Hawaiian – signature pie of A La Mode & lovely Elvis Tribute 🙂
Edge of delicious
Mexican Chocolate Mousse – My chosen slice 
Oreo Okay
Cookies & Cream – this one was my bestie’s favorite.
Truth About Instagram

While people do complain about a world filled with people, “just posting pictures of food online”, I have seen friendships and professional growth develop through Internet foodie culture.  For me, becoming a #SeattleFoodie is an entirely delicious experience.

Now Uploading – YouTube Channels!

I am so excited. I just keep saying that. At the start of this month, I begin uploading Amara In Seattle videos and within a week I had launched all three Amara In Seattle channels.

Making the decision to start early, while I am still in a learning phase was hard, but I find that creating is about learning as you go. There are many things I am working to improve, but I am thrilled to dig in and grow. To start. To take one step at a time. But most of all, I am excited to start interacting with all of you, amazing digital rock stars.

I hope you will join me on these of strange, beautiful, and fun adventures by subscribing, liking, sharing, and interacting with the three AIS channels:

Amara In Seattle (#AIS), the main channel. Here we adventure in the pacific northwest looking at history, events, pop culture, Americana, geekery, music, books, technology, social media, DIY, thrifting, vintage, retro, nostalgia and all kinds of other cool stuff.

Amara Not In Seattle (#ANIS) is a travel channel. A place for us to get lost traveling from exotic locales to local experiences, these are life enriching journeys. And to help your travels, there will also be travel tips, tricks, books, and reviews.

Amara In Seattle Vlogs (#AISV) is the catchall. A place to do random stuff like unboxings, DITLOs, super random talking, bloopers, internet trend videos, behind the scenes fun and other such vlogish things. http://bit.ly/2dTHKZF

As I keep saying, I am… well… so excited and I hope you are too. It’s going to be such fun!
