Is (Localism) holding up at Activerain? 4 year old "RACER" meets Vegas Bob at BMX Track in Boulder City Nevada!
 
Around 50% of Vegas Bob's posts to the Activarain network are directed towards (Localism). Localism use to be a HUGE place for Activerain members to post stories, photos & videos about communities that they want to promote, plug and create business.
For the longest time now other members and myself have wondered really how much return is really coming from (Localism) and how much has the Activerain network been focusing on Localism?
Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz will continue to post … (8 comments)

localism: Historic "Boulder City" Nevada (Art Scape) 25 minutes from Las Vegas - 01/26/11 04:14 PM
Historic "Boulder City" Nevada (Art Scape) 25 minutes from Las Vegas
 
Here is a video on around 15 different (Bronze Statues) displayed on the streets in Historic "Boulder City"
Boulder City is within minutes of The Hoover Dam and Lake Mead and a very interesting place to visit. There is no gambling in Boulder City and this is one of the reasons many people like to live there, BC has a very small town feel to it and if you work in Las Vegas or like to gamble Vegas is only 25 minutes drive time.
Enjoy this video I … (2 comments)

localism: Why do I post to (Localism) by: Robert Swetz - 12/23/09 11:17 PM
 Why do I post to (Localism) by: Robert Swetz
 Around the last year posting to Activerain approximately 45% of my posts are directed towards (Localism). Why?
 Because 90 percent of my (Leads) come from posting about communities and areas of interest where I live. I have been sharing information and photographs with people around the world about Las Vegas Nevada. And they have left many comments, emails and more thanking me and having an interest with coming to visit a place they have never seen before.
 Except for movies, magazines, friends & family, Internet & (Vegas Bob).

 I captured some of the most beautiful flowers at MGM City Center in Las Vegas Nevada by: Robert Swetz
 MGM City Center opened one week ago in Las Vegas Nevada and I found a place there that I just feel in love with.
 I will be giving out the name of the place after my other posts run because I have members trying to guess what some of my strange close-up photographs are.
 This post is kind of a give away to the other previous posts and let's see if the others catch on!

localism: Vegas Bob ran into some Geese headed south for the winter in Alamo Nevada - 11/16/09 10:33 AM

 Vegas Bob ran into some Geese headed south for the winter in Alamo Nevada
 On my way to Area 51 only one hour north of Las Vegas I came across this National Wildlife Refuge and stumbled upon a huge lake full of Canadian Geese, ducks and many more birds.
 As soon as they saw me they quacked and honked "There's Vegas Bob let's get out of here and head further south!" As you can see in some of the photos there are still leaves changing colors and it was quite beautiful.

 If you ever visit Las Vegas and have … (9 comments)

localism: A different approach to (Localism) for Robert Swetz - 07/28/09 11:30 AM

 A different approach to (Localism) for Robert Swetz
 I have been brain storming this idea for quite some time and this is my new idea!
 Because there are so many people that come to visit Las Vegas, I will pick one Casino for one week. For example this week happens to be The Wynn & Encore Hotels on Las Vegas Blvd, built by Steve Wynn!
 Here are four other posts I put out the beginning of this week is you missed them .................

localism: Posting to the Activerain Community vs (Localism) - 07/07/09 11:22 AM
 Posting to the Activerain Community vs (Localism)
 For the last twelve months around 50% of my blogs are posted to (Localism) because I travel so much and I photograph the cities I travel in. The other 50% of my blogs are posted to the Activerain Community.
 What is your opinion on posting to the Activerain Community vs (Localism)?
 Do you know if (Localism) is only visible to people who are in that area?  Or do you have to add a specific tag for this?
 And do posts to Localism ever get featured?
 I have found that even when I post a blog … (14 comments)

localism: Hiking at Red Rock Canyon - Las Vegas - Nevada by: Robert Swetz - 02/25/09 11:51 AM

 When I first moved to Las Vegas, it was almost one year before anyone mentioned to me about Red Rock Canyon. And once I received a taste of the beauty that surrounds the Red Rock Canyon area, I was hooked.
 If you live in Las Vegas, you know what I am talking about. And for anyone that has been to Las Vegas and never been to Red Rock Canyon, well........sorry!
 Red Rock Canyon has hiking trails every where and when my wife and I use to go there we would go to Calico Basin because it was free and very … (16 comments)

localism: What will the Real Estate market be like in 2009? Non stop construction at MGM City Center - Las Vegas, Nevada - 12/27/08 04:28 AM

 What will the Real Estate market be like in 2009?  Non stop construction at MGM City Center- Las Vegas, Nevada
 Building continues at the MGM City Center and over half of the towers will open in December of 2009. Construction will continue with the following towers after the Grand opening.
 There are rumors floating around about funding, etc., these are just rumors and I really can't see anything stopping the constructing of the second largest project in the world.
 I took these photographs one month ago and if you look real close at the photo below this one, you can … (4 comments)

localism: China Town - Las Vegas, Nevada - by Robert Swetz - 11/26/08 07:41 AM

 China Town - Las Vegas, Nevada - by Robert Swetz
 Yes, there is a China Town in Las Vegas, Nevada and it is located at Wynn Road & Spring Mountain NW. Only 5 minutes from (The Strip) Las Vegas Blvd.
 We live within minutes of China Town because of my wife Nu Nu's different business locations, and the convenience of the area.
 I have focused on one particular restaurant named Mother's Korean Grill, displayed in the photographs below.

 Me and Nu Nu have eaten at Mother's Korean Grill several times and the food is very delicious, as you can see … (1 comments)

localism: Photograph contest connected to C - Star - by Robert Swetz - 11/16/08 06:11 AM

 These photographs are being entered into a contest that C-Star mentioned to me through Activerain.
 Some of these photographs were taken today 11-16-2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada at one of the Casinos on The Strip. Can anyone tell me which Casino?
 There are a couple photographs that were not taken in Las Vegas Nevada, can you tell me which ones were not and where they were taken?
