#ThinkKit is a daily blogging challenge for the month of December hosted by Indy-based marketing firm SmallBox. To learn more about the challenge, do it yourself, or read other participants’ posts, follow along with @thinkkit or visit their webpage.
In the last post I mentioned I’d put the following prompt into action on Twitter and Facebook:
2) Take a poll and share the results. Is there something you’ve been curious about? A decision you’re struggling with? Ask the crowd, and report back on what the results might mean.
My question: What’s your favorite city?
I love Indianapolis. I’ve written about that a lot, particularly here. But I grew up mostly on the move. It wasn’t planned. It just kind of happened. I went to three elementary schools in 5th grade, my most drastic year on the go. By the time I graduated high school I’d been in five different school systems. As of right now, my permanent address hasn’t changed in 6.5 years and I almost don’t know what to do with myself. So thinking about leaving started, and that’s why I wanted to hear places your heart loves. Here’s what you said:
Tracy: London or Chicago
Philena: New Orleans
Alaina: INDIANAPOLIS!!!!! (she was really enthusiastic)
Ashley: St. Augustine, FL
Rachel: Key West
Lara: Minneapolis, San Francisco, Pasadena, Indy
Melanie: Indy with nods to Minneapolis, Chicago and Wroclaw
Sacha had one of my favorite responses: “Philadelphia (because it was home), Indianapolis (because it is home), and Chicago (because it’s fun).” Then she threw London into the mix later.
So, in case you’re not into math: Chicago (5), Indianapolis (4), Minneapolis (2), London (2), everything else (1)
What does this tell me? Big cities are king but there’s a lot of Indy love out there. And every place I daydream about living? It’s not all that far off from where other people send their love.
What cities do you love? Have lived? Think about moving to on a regular basis? I want to hear it all.
More catch-up later!
