A Message from Jim Parker

Happy New Year everyone!  As we ring in 2019, we’re pleased to share with you the ways in which we are expanding the Coastal Insider to make it even richer and more rewarding for our community. Our front page article for this New Year’s edition is a celebration of how we’ve evolved from our first fledgling paper exactly two and a half years ago, to realizing our goal of becoming a true community paper that unites all the communities along the Grand Strand— and with a monthly readership of 100,000 people. Our vision was born from our personal community involvement; as we live, worked, and played here, we observed the local culture and what was needed in our community, and then aspired to develop a model that would fulfill that need.    

Part of that vision that we’re bringing to fruition this new year, is the community sections of our paper.  Each community page is going to follow the same format; there will be room for a featured article about their general area— a place to delve into greater detail about a particular topic, as well as a listing of events— anything like a festival, parade, market, volunteer opportunity, or lecture, that is specific to that locale.  The new subsets will be easy to locate from several places in our publication— including the front page and table of contents.

We’re glad that we’ve taken on this venture to be able to connect the communities in this area; it’s been a privilege to serve the community in this way.  Our publication has been well received by the community, which shows us that we’re fulfilling a need in our community for connection and information. 

The housing market looks to be strong in the Grand Strand area going into 2019.  And all in all, this new year looks to be a positive one for us here in Myrtle Beach— all indicators are pointing in that direction.  Have a happy and healthy New Year from all of us at the Coastal Insider. 

Jim Parker, Co-owner, Coastal Insider & President, Real Living Home Realty Group
