Mount Pleasant Magazine Sept/Oct 2022

11 www. ReadMPM. com | www.MountPl easantMagaz i ne. com | www.MountPl easantPodcas t . com For me, each new issue brings a journey full of excitement, anticipation and flow of creativity. It’s a journey that I wish I could take each one of you, our readers, on with me. The rewards at the end of each trek are full of graphically pleasing designs, thousands of words made with pixels and shades of colorful ink on paper. It’s something truly amazing. We are so passionate about telling the stories of our beloved town that we approached Southern Living about a collaboration. We knew that accessing the readership of this iconic publication would mean we could reach an audience who cares about southern heritage and lifestyle. That same climate is rooted in East Cooper. Our collaboration has had a powerful impact on subscriptions and helped expose local restaurants and businesses to hundreds of thousands of Southern Living readers who might not have known about Mount Pleasant. Also, do not forget to visit us on the web and on the air. Two of my most loved ways of telling stories about Mount Pleasant outside these pages are on our podcast, www.MountPleasantPodcast. com or on our website, www. Until next issue, remember to enjoy your journey.
