Today this blog is 1 year old. Our first post was on September 16, 2010. There are a lot of food blogs that have been around for several years, but there are probably twenty times as many that are started with the intention of longevity, but which peter out in less than a year's time as the blogger loses interest, or becomes too busy to spend time blogging, or whatever.
Blogging has also inspired us to try some new restaurants and stores we might not have gotten around to trying. That's part of the "Adventures in Iowa" we refer to in our blog subtitle.
