Flooring The Consumer: Three Years Old!

The Magic of Number Three - A Visual Puzzle originally uploaded by Kornel Mezo.
Blogging continues to inspire and amaze me, particularly as I reach the three year anniversary of Flooring The Consumer.

I can document my reasons for getting started, but that doesn't adequately capture my rich and rewarding personal journey where I have encountered so many unexpected wonderful friends, new perspectives and intriguing possibilities....

As I begin my fourth year, I thought it would be interesting to look back and share with you the posts that have attracted the most interest:

Writing & connecting is fun

Mack Collier said...

Congrats CB! Wow 3 years is quite an accomplishment for a blog! Here's to another 3! ;)

Phil Gerbyshak said...

It's only been 3 years? Wow, seems like a LONGER than that.

Love what you do here CB, and I look forward to AT LEAST 3 more years learning with you!

CB Whittemore said...

Thanks, Mario! Writing & connecting is definitely fun.

CB Whittemore said...

Mack, I'm amazed at being 3! I wonder, though, whether there's special aging associated with blog years? Thanks very much.

CB Whittemore said...

Phil, I have trouble remembering what life was life BB. Thanks very much!
