Our initial effort in tourism blogging is underway! We've set up a blog for Columbia, Missouri, that will feature a lot of the cool stuff going on there. (Heck, the city is so cool, it actually has a store called "Cool Stuff.") We'll be collecting stories, flickr photos, and anything else we can get our hands on. The idea, as always, is to tell a story. In this case, we want to do more than provide a "slick brochure" of the city. We want to make this blog a living, breathing place that shows what it's like to experience Columbia. Check it out -- and if you've been there, help us out by sharing your own experiences in "the smart, innovative, artsy, eclectic, clever, savvy, vibrant, too-dynamic-to-fit-into-a-short-tagline city."
