Des Moines is the butt of many jokes. I know this. I grew up in and have lived around Des Moines almost my entire life. Most people outside of Iowa think nothing ever happens in Des Moines (except the Iowa caucuses every four years). Yet, I have mentioned from time to time that Des Moines has become a hub of activity in the blogosphere. The number of bloggers meeting, sharing and networking seems to be increasing regularly and thanks to Andy Brudtkuhl there’s even a website where you can find introduction to all the Central Iowa Bloggers!
Last week the first Central Iowa Bloggers Summit happened in impromptu fashion at Panera U. Basically, anyone who blogs comes, has a cup of coffee and shares with each other – and tentative plans are to continue this on the first Friday of each month (8:00 a.m. at Panera on University in West Des Moines).
