Flying Kite says “Passyunk Post redefines local news”

The website Flying Kite Media did a very flattering feature on us, calling the site “essential reading for South Philly residents and would-be residents alike.” In a wide-ranging Q&A with Editor/Founder Albert Stumm, Flying Kite reveals how we got we started and hits a lot of other key points.

After a couple years working in the service industry, including a short stint as a bellman at the Rittenhouse Hotel, [Stumm] earned a master’s in journalism from Temple University and eventually landed his current full-time gig — assistant city editor at the Daily News. That experience has served him well. In only six months, Passyunk Post has cultivated thousands of readers.

That’s right. Thousands of regular readers, who we love so much we want to give you all big, sloppy kisses. But let’s keep it clean.

The interview covers a lot of ground, if you’re interested in that kind of thing: how we got started, some insight behind the new redesign, the love for all our wonderful contributors, the future of the neighborhood, the future of the King of Jeans sign, the future of this site, and more.

To read the whole thing, check it out here. And again, folks, thanks so much for reading. It really has been a lot of fun.
