The Bacon Nation was originally the idea of author and bacon-lover Heather Lauer in 2005 who also ran an amazing bacon blog called BaconUnwrapped at http://baconunwrapped.com.  Originally BaconNation was a fun community of bacon eaters on a growing social network called Ning.  Sadly in 2009 Ning closed down the free networking site and we had to move on.  Heather continues to write cool stuff about bacon on her blog and also works on lots of other excitig projects somewhere in Arizona.

After months of emails and meeting Heather at Bacon Bash Pittsburgh a few years ago, we agreed that I had too much free time and should try to continue the Bacon Nation site and find new ways to share the bacon love with the world.  Thanks to Facebook and Twitter (see http://facebook.com/baconnation) we have thousands of bacon fans who come here first for all their bacon news!
