Blog Philadelphia Recap – Why I Must Move To Philadelphia
Let me first say this event was eye opening. It was such a big event and the community was so strong that I am currently now investigating ways to move to Philadelphia (about an hour from Bethlehem, my current location).
Now for, why I now am in love with Philadelphia:
1. The Peeps
The amazingly awesome blogging celebrities at BlogPhiladelphia (in order of most photos on flickr) consisted of…
and on mac‘s…
and is super as he blogs everything,
and as recorded is EXTREMELY passionate about Community.
Annie Heckenberger – BlogPhladelphia Marketing Extraodinaire – Social Media: The New Black
She is an amazingly fun person…
Joe Sweeney – Half editor, half amazing- Phillebrity
He is a Philly blogger mastermind…
and an Amazing panel moderator.
2. The Mentality
Philadelphia was the city that built rocky for crying out loud. There is a strong sense of “we are the underdog and don’t give a ..” attitude as the much larger New York City is just an hours drive away. I think this attitude is very synonymous with Viddler’s situation (thank Dave Spears from Phillypreneurs.com for pointing this out).
3. The Living Is Incredible
With rent twice as inexpensive as NYC and as is morbidly described by my friend Jeff Mann, Philly is an incredible place to live….
There are great people in any city. But the community that resides in Philadelphia is what sets it apart….. And now for photo montage (play some really cool music)…
