In keeping this blog strictly for the beginner, I sometimes wonder if reader’s think that I’ve strayed too far from what other wine bloggers are doing: Reviewing wine. My posts have always been written as if I’m talking to a friend, whether it’s a friend that lives here in my Santa Clarita neighborhood or a friend in…well…if I’m to believe my stat counter, across the US, Russia, Japan, England, Belgium, etc.
I help run events, I go to events, I write about events and I keep all of your local events on my SCV Wine Calendar. Not something any wine blogger I know is doing to this extent. I sometimes help write, and then run, your press releases. I have posts just filled with my own photos; some with yours. I have a couple of staff writers and a friend that would like to start a magazine with me. Again, things I don’t see other wine bloggers doing.
Since last summer I’ve been putting up daily content for anyone that is here just looking for wine news; some local and some from friends with wine issues as far away as Maryland. And only because I find it all interesting. Watching trends and becoming a destination for whatever you might be looking for and might want to learn about.
Due to this, my own blogging has decreased while my editor duties have increased. Both require work and both give me rewards.
So, now the question is, is this what you want?
Eve of Destruction (Over a bottle of wine) or Eve’s Wine 101 (Never over your head.)
