The I List

I A year or so ago, there was the Z list. Next, the W list.  Then, came the O list.  Now, I think it is high time that we share with the world the power of blogging in Iowa.

Meet the I list.

If you’re an Iowa blogger, grab this list….add any Iowa blogs that might be missing and then post it on your blog.  Let’s see how many we can get.  If you’re not an Iowa blogger — grab the list and challenge your state’s bloggers to match or beat it!

Either way — what a great way to launch the new year — some link love and even more important — some long overdue props to the state that is not only setting the political course with our caucuses, but also charts the waters for bloggers everywhere.

    Not only am I thrilled to be on the list, but there are some great sounding blogs I have never visited before. You can bet that is soon to be fixed. Great idea Drew.

    Thanks, Drew. Happy New Year!

    Hey, Drew! Was just at the I_Blog Conference, and your list was mentioned by @debworks! I’d love it if you could add my blog the next time you update. I live in Ankeny and have been blogging about a year and a half.


  12. Hi Drew! I was also at the I_Blog conference this weekend, and your name was brought up several times as the person who has “the list” of Iowa bloggers. I’d love it if you would add my blog to your list:

    Sincerely, Jenni


  13. Blogging, yes…yes indeed. I’ve seen one of those around these parts before. 🙂
