Like most people, I’ve always considered myself relatively connected with my community. I occasionally am forced to go to Walmart, I attend classes with other locals, I go to local restaurants…
I have friends who are locals… but I guess I never really considered supporting local businesses and artists. So, I’ve decided to start a new section of the site devoted to local artisans, bakers, crafters, photographers, and the like. I think the real problem that local entrepreneurs face is building up support from their communities. It seems like while we are all on social media, we aren’t really connecting with our communities.
So, I decided to begin blogging the local artists and crafters that I believe warrant more attention.
You can find my growing list of artists I choose to spotlight here, or you can just click on the image link that reads “Project Iowa” on the sidebar! Thanks for being cool!
