There are some interesting blogs originating from the Wichita area with lots of ideas flowing from a wide variety of people. What seems to be lacking is a way to encourage a conversation among all these minds. That is the purpose of this blog.

I hope you will follow the links you find interesting and express yourself in that blog’s comments. Or better yet link to that post on your own blog and speak your mind. Comments are turned off on this blog to encourage that sort of give and take.

This is a labor of like on my part. I like blogs and I like ideas and I like Wichita. All of these things converge at this intersection.I will not pretend to be objective but I will strive to be fair. If you know of a blog authored by someone in the Wichita area please let me know and I will include them.

Feedback, suggestions and encouragement can be sent to me at douglas dot and dot main at gmail dot com.

My name is Bobby Rozzell and I am a 52 year old graduate student at the Elliott School of Communication at Wichita State University. I have lived in Wichita for almost 20 years. I have a personal blog at bobbyrozzell.com.

  1. It’s almost like being on television!

  2. I heard about your site with Wichita blogs and was pleasantly surprised to find mine. Just curious how you found it. 🙂

  3. Thanks for compiling all these local blogs. I’ve got my own, which you already link to, but it’s fun to see what others are doing.

  4. Joe Stumpe is doing a fun blog on Kansas.com about Shocker Fitness with Coach Bolt. http://blogs.kansas.com/sweat/

  5. Seems like this is the only place I could leave a comment in response to https://douglasandmain.wordpress.com/2008/10/04/what-about-opie/.
    I had no idea what you were talking about at first. “Opie?” But I get it. Opie, Andy . . . I didn’t even know who Aunt Bee was until about two months after I ended up with this name!
    Nice site, but if you’re looking for everyone to respond to each other, it would be nice if your posts allowed comments, too!

  6. Thanks for your blog. It is an excellent community resource, and I follow it on my blogger account.

    Would you add my blog to your blogroll?

    I’m a Wichita writer with a cooking blog that focuses on local food and quirky Wichita and Kansas tidbits.


  7. I’m a Park City/Wichita blogger. Check out my blog at


  8. Hi Bobby–what a great site! I wish I’d happened upon it earlier, as it’s so much handier than googling “wichita kansas blogs,” my local-blog-identification method heretofore.

    I hope you’ll add the blog attached to my store: http://frankandmargaret.typepad.com/

  9. Great blog of blogs. I humbly submit my own, which chronicles the snails-pace progress of my band Back Porch Buddha:

    Many thanks,

  10. Hey, thanks for linking to us. We appreciate it.

    P.S. It is not so bizarre for a couple to blog together. =P
