5. What do you think the state of the blogosphere is in our region?
I think the state of blogging in Ames/ Iowa as a general is good. I think there are a lot of people talking about different things. Many people have different aspirations, things that inspire them and are willing to share it. There are a lot of great written blogs, but also great photo blogs and video blogs. It's nice, because some people feel very comfortable in one media (photo, written, video) BUT there are several that embrace them all and like to change it up from time to time. I need to get more in the habit of doing that myself. I also love the fact that we have many individuals and businesses that are blogging about the same topics and information, but do it in a way, where their ideas, thoughts and opinions are all different and presented in a different way.
