Wine Blogging

    • Are Wine Critics More Qualified Than Wine Bloggers?

      A friend of mine – Elaine Brown of Hawk Wakawaka Wine Reviews – recently sent me a note indicating that another friend of mine (David White of Terroirist) and I were mentioned in an online article over at FirstWeFeast.com that was written by yet another friend of mine, Jonathan Cristaldi.

    • As Wine-Blog celebrates nine years… Robert Parker just influenced me, again

      As I read Robert Parker’s “Best of 2014″ in his latest newsletter, it reminded me of how I’ve been handling being “on pointe,” since December 29, 2005.

I’m going to now stop counting… Bob wrote the following: Best of 2014: Top 3 Get-a-Life Outside ...

  • Thoughts On Thoughts On Thoughts On Influential Wine Blogs

    … Back in October (yeah, I really am about that far behind on things), the scientifically-minded Becca Yeamans-Irwin wrote on her blog about a research study that examined five influential English language wine blogs (including this lil’ ol’ one right here) using content analysis software called Leximancer. As you no doubt already expected from…

  • Seven years of wine writing on the Internet

    … The Wine Curmudgeon has the best job in the world — I get to drink wine and write about it for a worldwide audience that appreciates what I say and regularly tells me so. I’ve won awards and I’m respected in a way I never was in my previous writing careers, and it’s not like I didn’t have successes then. How about interviewing a talking dog…

  • The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke, Part Two

    … really get addressed in detail in my original post or the comments that followed. The important thing of which her email reminded me is that, individually, as wine bloggers, we have to represent.

  • The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke (But It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way)

    … During the recent Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara, I performed one of the more self-serving actions of my entire life (and that’s saying something, right there). During Corbett Barr’s keynote speech, I clapped deliberately and loudly when Barr told the conference-goers that the wine blogging community needs to do more to work together…

  • My Wine Writing Philosophy

    … it was a wine region until I moved to the East Coast after college. Unrelated to the conference, I’ve been asked what got me started wine blogging and why I write about wine a number of times lately, so I thought, what better time to jot down a treatise on that subject than right before I devote myself to it for four days straight? First and foremost, I am…
