I'm Indiana Adams.
This is my blog.
I LIVE IN Atlanta.


About this blog:

In 2009, while living in Austin, Texas, I started a blog called Adored Austin and watched my audience grow from a regular readership of two (me and my aunt) to over a hundred thousand readers per month.

In 2014, my family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. Since it made zero sense to have a blog called "Adored Austin" when I'm... you know... no longer living in Austin, I had to scramble and come up with something new. Enter: Indiana Elsewhere. It's me, elsewhere. 

 Adored Austin's archives are here on Indiana / Elsewhere as well as some cross posted material from my work with the Coffee + Crumbs podcast. 

A little more about me + the internet:

I started blogging in 1999 as beta tester for Blogger where I documented my life as newly single gal at a conservative Christian university and I've been documenting the various stages of my life in online journal form ever since. I've always loved using the internet to make IRL relationships and to that end, I founded Texas Style Council, a beloved conference specific for female creatives that ran for five years during SXSW week in Austin, Texas. I've had the honor of speaking at various conferences around the country, including a featured presentation with TOMS at SXSW and a packed out panel at Alt Summit, where I got to present the influencer POV during a talk on brand partnerships. 

These days I'm behind the scenes as a freelance social media marketing and community building consultant and I'm the host of the Coffee + Crumbs podcast as well as their co-director of brand partnerships. I write thoughtfully but off-the-cuff, choosing to eschew tactics to gain a larger, but more shallow readership. Instead I focus on creating meaningful content on the podcast and stay connected with my established community and friends through this blog and my Instagram account.
