One of the first things I did when I moved to Philly was obviously subscribe to Philadelphia Magazine. My parents subscribed to the magazine while I was growing up & I would always page through, daydreaming of my future life in the big city!
I read the magazine religiously every month, sometimes not all in one sitting, but I always genuinely enjoy its content. Being the social media gal I am, I usually tweet along with @PhillyMag on twitter, commenting on my favorite articles & photos. In November, the magazine (I have since thrown out the issue & can’t remember the author) wrote a great story about Philadelphia 76ers CEO Adam Aron. In true “Philadelphian” fashion, I was eating a cheesesteak while reading … so I decided to tweet about it.
After a tweet back from Philly Mag about including my tweet in their “letters to the editor” page and one month later, imagine my happiness when I opened the December issue…
And this happened:
O.M.G! Talk about prime real estate! And so, my first (of hopefully many) 5 minutes of Philadelphia fame had arrived.
What was the first thing you did in the city that made you feel like a true Philadelphian? xx
