My name is Kerry Crawford, and I love Memphis. Presumably, you do, too.
It's easy to say that you love something. We do it all the time.
It's another thing entirely to actually invest in the act of love. For one, it's much harder. Actual love involves being supportive, seeing imperfections and coping with them and being willing to work. Mainly, though, it means choosing to love that place, that thing, that person or that idea every single day.
This site is my way of saying that I choose Memphis.
Memphis isn't like any other place. It's got its own thing going, its own beauty and its own grit. It's got soul.
I Love Memphis was founded in August, 2009 to showcase all of the incredible music, food, arts, culture, events, people and ideas that make Memphis so special. Three years later, I'm in no danger of running out of things to write about.
Because I Love Memphis is meant to be a community focused site, I'd love to have your input. If there's something happening in Memphis that you'd like to see featured on this site, please email me and let me know. Similarly, if you're involved in something or have had a Memphis experience that you'd like to do a guest post about, I'd love to talk to you.
I work full time for the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau as their social media specialist, so this site is also my job. That doesn't mean the feelings aren't genuine – I choose what to post about, and all of the opinions here are my own (unless it's a guest post – then the opinions are of whoever wrote it).
If you'd like to get in touch with me, here's how:
