I’ve been posting Wine Review Monday for the past nine months. This post is to give you some insight as to my mission.
I consider myself a newbie blogger, and I’m definitely not a writer, so to keep up with the blog world I read blogs in a variety of categories. To my surprise I’ve read several blog posts that criticize many aspects of other bloggers’ posts, some of which are the writing, grammar and the subject matter of the posts.
I was under the impression that blogging is just a personal “journal” that one makes a conscience decision to put on the web for the entire webulation to read — and not subject to critics. I don’t know, maybe I’m not getting it yet.
Well, this critique thingy makes me uncomfortable. I’m not an educator, scholar, or whateva’… and I feel the need to CMA, ya’ know, so I thought a 411 would help.
Wine is a drink that I enjoy and I find the entire wine-making process and its results extremely interesting. A close family friend who knew everything there was about wine graciously taught me enough so that I wanted to continue to learn.
Throughout my journey I have met a couple of winemakers, wine teachers and knowledgeable sales people along the way who have been generous with sharing their experiences and offering their help. With their help I have learned why I like the wines I drink and why I don’t.
This is the beginning of “The 411”. Not everyone is a wine-eaux and that includes me. I just know what I like and want to share some of the information which often can be the Ah Ha moment we were looking for.
It’s my way of sharing wine information that is easy to understand to make an informed decision to Taste Wine and Enjoy!
