With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans!

December 9, 2009

Having answered their question about being ripped off in Las Vegas during their upcoming New Years 2010 visit (in episode #73 Hip Checks and Short Skirts – Roller Derby in Las Vegas), I think Kevin and Karen saw Melissa and myself as, well, their new favorite Las Vegas friends.

To that I say, “We are, K&K.  We are!”

And what do Living in Las Vegas Podcast friends do to reciprocate their friendship?

Well. . .preferably they’d send cash.

But more times then not, they follow Kevin and Karen’s lead and submit a smiling photo to our Friends of the LiLV Podcast page!

Welcome to the Friends page, K&K!  We’re glad to have you aboard!

By the way, are YOU on our Friends page?  If you’re not, you should be!  Just attach a photo of yourself to an email and send it to friends@livinginlv.com.  Life as you know it will improve in a dozen different ways when you do so!

Last Tuesday, I sent an email to all the subscribers of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast email list asking for a recommendation.

The reason?

The Living in Las Vegas Podcast Virtual Video Meetup beta test we ran last Friday was a success(!) and as a result, I wanted to get our list member’s suggestions regarding a good day/time combo for our upcoming series of LiLV Virtual Video Meetups.

About 10% of those who read the email responded and I wanted to both share the top day/time combos along with asking for your comments.  Because we see this as a great way to keep in touch with our listeners PLUS a groovy way to introduce our listeners to each other, please take a moment and give us your thoughts on the matter!  Thank you in advance!

In analyzing the responses (Excel to the rescue!), here’s the top 5 most popular day/time combos:

1. FRIDAY at 5PM Pacific, tied with #2

I may have influenced this as it was the example I gave in the email. 

2. MONDAY at 8PM Pacific

This had the same number of votes as Friday/5pm.  My concern here is for the EST folks.

 

3. SUNDAY-THURSDAY from BETWEEN 6 – 9PM Pacific

Several comments suggesting a mid-week break from the daily grind.

4. SATURDAY at 9AM Pacific

Starting off the weekend right!  Would also give our many European listeners a chance to play along.

5. FRIDAY at 8PM Pacific

Starting off the weekend early!

 

What do you think?  Please take a moment right now and add a comment to the website.

Thanks again!

Scott, are you planning a listener meetup any time soon?  We’re going to be in Las Vegas next week, and would love to meet other listeners to your show!”

From time to time, I get an email like the one above.  Melissa and I think it’s great that listeners to the show are interested in getting together, like we’ve done in previous meetups.  And while there’s nothing like seeing folks in person, there’s still many more people who’d like to attend but are unable to because their either busy, out of town, or not Las Vegas locals.

I’ve been trying to figure out a way to create a Virtual Video Meetup—where any of our listeners could join in for free, regardless of their location, and have some fun talking among each other.

After some preliminary testing, I think I’ve created such an environment on the Living in Las Vegas Podcast website!

Announcing the LiLV LIVE VIDEO CHAT ROOM

If you look on the Home Page of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast website, you’ll see a new graphic in the right-side column.  It takes you to our brand new LiLV LIVE VIDEO CHAT Room!  In it, we all can:

  1. Host an unlimited number of participants
  2. See and hear up to 12 Live Video Feeds from those participating in the meetup.
  3. Add content to the real-time textual chat window
  4. Engage in private text-chats with any participant

In our preliminary testing, we had five video feeds running at one time.  I’d like to push that a bit farther this evening, if you’re up for it!  So tonight I’m going to run a “beta” test of our new webpage: http://www.LivingInLV.com/VideoChat

Tonight at 5:30pm Pacific, you are invited to test out our new Live Video Chat Room.  I’ll be there with a lovely beverage hoping to talk with listeners from all over the place.  If you have a camera and microphone, come join the fun.  And even if you don’t, stop by anyways.  We had fun during our testing talking with people who just used the chat window provided for all participants.

Date: Today (11/13/09)
Time: 5:30pm Pacific
Where: http://www.LivingInLV.com/VideoChat
Why? Because I’m all about the Kumbaya, my friend!

Hope to see you tonight!

In what is a first during our many years of existence, our last two “Friends” photo submissions have been from two of our international listeners.  Joining Ireland’s John G. is his countryman Dermot H.  (Dermot. . .isn’t that a great Irish name?) 

Welcome, Dermot, to our Friends of the LiLV Podcast page!

The cool thing is Dermot will be moving to Las Vegas in December!  I’m guessing we’ll have to meet for a pint sometime real soon!

Being of Irish descent, I was quite pleased to find John G.’s photo in our friends@livinginlv.com mail box.  John is another international Living in Las Vegas Podcast “Friend” who has just recently discovered our show.  He listens to a couple shows a day (which means he may run out pretty soon!) and visits Las Vegas once a year.

Welcome, John, to our Friends of the LiLV Podcast page!

(I wonder who the little fella in John’s arm is?  I wonder if John is the little fellow?)

Want to know one of the cool benefits of producing a live video stream show?  Well, besides the realtime feedback, and the excitement of performing in front of a live audience, it has added to our “Friends of LiLV” page.

At the end of our live show, we had a bit of a Q & A session and the subject of our “Friends” photo page came up.  Come to find out, several folks who had thought they had sent a photo either forgot to do so. . .or the photo got swiped by e-gremlins.  Either way, as a result, we’ve just received a couple more pics to the page.

Welcome to The Nugents (Brandon & Darcy + kids. . .no Reverend Ted Nugent in attendance) and Rob & Lois.  California and Michigan should be proud of such excellent representation!

Are YOU on our Friends page?  It’s easy!  Just attach a photo of yourself to an email and send it to friends [at] livinginlv.com.  Many groovy things will come your way if you do so!

A few hours ago, Thelma stopped by to check out our website for this Sunday’s LIVE STREAMING VIDEO.  I happen to be testing the chat function at the time so Thelma and I got our chat on.  Come to find out, Thelma has been listening to the Living in Las Vegas Podcast for several years now, having found us on iTunes.  When I asked if she’d sent a photo to our Friends of the LiLV Podcast page, she said she needed to send one. . .and then did.

Thelma sent us a photo of she and her husband Jeremy enjoying their honeymoon last summer while in the Grand Caymans.  Looks like they were having a good time!

Thanks, Thelma and Jeremy!

(By the way, have you added your friends photo?)

Not only is the Canadian dollar growing stronger by the week, but the Friends of the LiLV Podcast page has grown by 3.57% with the addition of fellow podcasters Tim and Nanette.  Welcome to the page, eh?

(I wonder if they’ll be joining us for our Halloween MeetUp?)

Okay okay. . .good thing you don’t have to be smart to run your own business.  The photo said Canada which threw me. . .truth is, Tim and Nanette are from Atlanta, GA. 

That uses up yesterday’s mistake quota.  Now, on to today!!!

I think it’s safe to say that the LiLV Podcast appeals to a wide range of people–demographically, geographically, and now, chronologically.  Our latest “Friend” of the LiLV Podcast looks pretty young. . .but Anne from Utah tells us that this photo is not quite as recent as the others on the page.  Regardless, welcome aboard Anne (who has been a long-time listener)!
