Bridget MagnusCome to find out, Twitter is good for more than getting updates about Twilight, sharing your anger about poor WorldCup officiating, and telling everybody that you just woke up.  It’s really good at finding experts in the most curious of ways.

I put out a tweet about Las Vegas street performers that solicited a funny response by Bridget Magnus, a Las Vegas local.  As I often do when I get a reply on Twitter, I checked out her blog.  Come to find out, she’s a Realtor.  And I was pleasantly surprised to learn that she publishes a weekly blog post called “Friday Figures”, which provides a synopsis on what’s what in the Las Vegas real estate market, based upon figures from GLVAR MLS system.

I asked if she’d be interested in sharing her insights with our Living in Las Vegas Podcast readers and she agreed to do so.

Welcome, Bridget.  Thanks for joining the team!

Over the last few days, our readers have seen a steady stream of new blog posts

Have you noticed?

The increased stream of blog posts have been courtesy of the newest contributor to the Living in Las Vegas Podcast website.  I’m happy to introduce our readers/listeners to Jacob Cannon, a good friend of the show and of Melissa and myself (along with his lovely wife Sally!).

Besides sharing the occasional “Man Pizza”, Jacob would constantly send me emails highlighting things happening in the Las Vegas Valley.  I asked him if he’d be interested in sharing his insights with our readers and he graciously agreed to do so.

If you have ideas/tips for Jacob, feel free to shoot him an email: JacobC[at]livinginlv.com. I’m sure he’d love to hear from you!

Welcome, Jacob!  Thanks for joining the team!

On January 12, 2009, the Living in Las Vegas Podcast will celebrate its three-year anniversary. Over these past three years, Melissa and I have enjoyed sharing our lives with our podcast listeners and blog readers, meeting local and far-away LivinginLV.com visitors for a drink (or two), and helping folks learn more about what it’s like to call Las Vegas your home. We never expected to turn anonymous listeners into real friends but this too has been an unexpected bonus to reaching out to y’all via our website, podcast and blog.

The feedback we’ve received during the life of this website has been heart-warming. From the good-natured teasing comments left on the website to the “thanks for helping me find a job” emails, Melissa and I want to thank all of you for sharing your thoughts with the two of us.

Now, it’s time for me to share something with you.

In reviewing the LivingInLV.com website and what it delivers to our visitors, it occurred to me that while it certainly provides some insight into the Las Vegas lifestyle, it was the insight of just two people. As I’ve had the opportunity to meet other interesting people here in Las Vegas, I thought this would be a good time to expand the editorial voice of the LivingInLV.com website to include others whose expertise are beyond mine. And so. . .

Beginning in 2009, we will be adding new LiLV Contributors to our website!

I am VERY excited about hearing from these new contributors!

Each LiLV Contributor will have a “beat”, or special focus. To begin, Cheryl Hill (a long-time LiLV listener) will focus on all things Summerlin. Brandie Feuer will keep us up-to-date on special locals-only deals found on the Strip and beyond. And Doug Geinzer will help us better understand the Las Vegas employment environment. I’m pleased that these smart folks will be joining the fun and further enhancing what the Living in Las Vegas Podcast & Blog website offers our visitors. I hope you like it as well.

If you have ideas/tips for Cheryl, Brandie or Doug, feel free to shoot them an email: Cheryl[at]livinginlv.com, brandie[at]livinginlv.com, doug[at]livinginlv.com. I’m sure they’d love to hear from you!

In the meantime, here’s hoping the rest of 2008 is a fun and safe one for you and yours. We’ll be adding other LiLV Contributors to the mix and welcome any suggestions you might have regarding other “beats” we should be writing about. Any ideas?

Thanks again for playing along these last three years (and stay tuned for another fun announcement).
