VegasLinks Q&A With Chuckmonster From VegasTripping

Here's a new feature from VegasLinks. We will be featuring a series of questions answered by Vegas site webmasters or insiders.

I know the "Best of" thing has been done by many many great websites in which polls are held and votes are tallied. VegasTripping, VegasRex, The LVRJ, LV Weekly and others have Best of Vegas polls which I love to read.

What we aspire to do here is just a bit different and I hope you enjoy reading the responses. Most people that run Vegas websites all have a passion for the place. I'm sure a few make money but the real motivation for the good ones all come down to a fanatical desire to learn more about Vegas and where to go and what to eat and how to share that info with the online Vegas community. The thing that will differentiate the VegasLinks "Best of" Q&A is that it will be broken down by individual and not just any schmo from Idaho(no offense to any schmos from Idaho). Strictly Vegas Webmasters or Insiders will be showcased.

To start out we have Chuck from VegasTripping who puts together The Trippies, a Best of Vegas poll for which VegasLinks was nominated in the Best Blog category.
