Do you live in Wichita and environs? Do you blog?

Ever since I began good ol' Blog Meridian, I've been curious to know who else in the area blogs. So far as I can determine, the two possible answers to that question are 1) Not many; 2) Lots, but they keep it quiet, this being the Midwest and blogs perhaps having the stigma of trendiness attached to them.

Not too long ago, I visited Globe of Blogs' directory to visit the Wichita blogs it has listed. I also looked at those who had just indicated "Kansas" as well. I chose Globe of Blogs for this search because, of all the directories I've listed my blog in, I get by far the most traffic from my listing there. Based on that fact, I figured fellow Wichitans were trolling for bloggers in the area. Well. Some of the links were dead; some appeared to be moribund; some were active. In any case, though, there don't seem to be too many of us.

So, I've decided to start a links list of Wichita (and Wichita-area) bloggers who would like to be so listed or, in the case of Shelton of Adventures in Wichita (which isn't listed in Globe of Blogs' directory), have graced this blog with a comment. I won't presume otherwise. So, if you'd like your blog to be listed, send me an e-mail (click on the "Write Me" text in the right-hand corner) or leave a comment on this post, and I'll be happy to list it.

I look forward to hearing from you.

How about a comprehensive list off actively maintained Kansas blogs? I spent a while trying to locate good progressive blogs from Kansas and was shocked by how few blogs of any sort there were.

It'd be fun to get that list and set up something like the Tarheel Tavern, a monthly carnival of regional blogging.

Nice place. Like the pics.

I used to teach college English too. It's good karma.
