The website BloomingtonOnline.net was started in August of 2005 by Dale Staton and over the last 14 years has grown into a very robust directory of user generated information about our local community.

Dale’s passion for photography (check out hoosierphotobooth.com) and capturing local events in the community helped fuel the growth and Bloomingtonians were excited to come back to the site and see their photos and continue to engage in the local community.

In July 2019, Dale Staton, the original site owner passed on ownership of the website to local web designer, David Martin. David had a listing in the website design category since June of 2008 and was very qualified to run the website with a degree in Computer Information Systems and a certificate in Website Management from Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington.

It’s our goal to build a great resource for the local Bloomington community and help others discover what is going on, who they can trust, and create connections to drive local commerce and engagement.

We welcome your feedback and hope you will find the BloomingtonOnline community to be a welcoming place and an honest reflection of our beautiful neighborhoods, businesses, and people in Bloomington, Indiana.
