Blogger Spotlight: The Brooklyn Dodger.

I had the privilege of meeting a new Alabama Blogger, Kate Martineau Adams, at our last blogger meet-up. I didn't get to talk to her for very long, but her story and blog focus intrigued me. And, when I had the opportunity to check out her blog, I was hooked!

Kate is a new Alabama transplant, moving here from Brooklyn. She loved living in New York City (after all, it IS a fabulous place) until she had kids. And so, to find a more family-friendly place to raise their family, she and her husband moved here - to Birmingham.

Of course, the culture is unbelievably different, and so her blog, The Brooklyn Dodger, is all about comparing and contrasting the differences of her life in Brooklyn versus in Birmingham.

And you know what the best part is?

She loves it here.

Her blog is a wonderfully fresh look at our city through the eyes of a new resident, and it thrills my heart to see someone so excited to live in our great city!

Her glowing perspective on Birmingham is a needed one in this city, where so many people find so much wrong with it. And, her unique ability to contrast and compare it with life in Brooklyn makes for some fascinating reading!

Check Kate's blog out at The Brooklyn Dodger, and follow her on Twitter at @KateDodger.

Do you know of an Alabama Blog that should be spotlighted? If so, email me at

Thanks, Rachel! I've had several great visitors over at B.D. today, thanks to you!

I love how supportive the AL blog community is... it must be your Southern roots!
