Our writers are your local guides, here to help you celebrate and discover Montgomery.
The LoveMGM Origin Story
LoveMGM came into the world on Valentine’s Day 2017. For over three years before that the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention and Visitor Bureau http://visitingmontgomery.com/ worked hard to make sure locals knew more about how many great things were going on in the city. The goal was to over time enhance local pride and awareness of the variety of lifestyles, interests and fun ways to spend time in the city.
Every week a lengthy list of events was emailed out to subscribers, staff members made appearances on radio and TV, a column of events ran every Monday in the Montgomery Advertiser http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/, and the MGMCapitalCool Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MontgomeryCapitalCool/ and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/mgmcapitalcool/ accounts gained followers for their timely updates on local events and news.
The time had come for a bigger platform to tell Montgomery’s story – to dig deeper and get to know each other better. Since we had most complete calendar, strong relationships with community groups, attractions and event organizers, as well as the City of Montgomery, we were ready to step and start the conversation with this blog.
We’re Ready for What’s Next
Our city is at a tipping point. Growth and reinvestment all around the city have ignited a spirit and passion that is going to take us on to even event greater future. Our special history has show us how to come together as a community to solve problems and move forward. We hope that the LoveMGM blog will help show ourselves and the world just how special this place is.
