Nope, still on vacation with no new closings, but I thought I would note that three years ago today, 29 December 2007, I made the first posting on Columbia Closings.
It was a "Mission Statement" that codified the somewhat nebulous ideas I had for what I wanted to do here.
Before those first postings, there were several months of a vague feeling that I wanted to be doing something on the internet, culminating in a bit of an inspiration flash, when the domain-name came to me. When it proved to be available, there was figuring out hosting with GoDaddy, installing WordPress, figuring out how that worked, working out the html for doing pictures the way I wanted to and finally figuring out something to say.
Today, according to WordPress statistics, I've made 904 posts, and I plan to keep on for the foreseeable future. It hasn't brought vast wealth or world domination, but I've had fun, and I want to thank all of you who read and comment on these posts, and often as not set me straight!
