When I first stated writing this Blog/PodCast I had big plans for what I was going to do and try to achieve. Since then I have learned that it’s not as easy as I thought. I have learned to truly appreciate those people who produce top quality PodCasts and Blogs. Trust me if you are only reading a blog, you have no idea.
There is so much “competition” for Wine Blogs. It’s very hard to produce a top quality blog, and podcast. Sites such as The Wine Wankers, The Wine Stalker, among many others are kicking out top blog posts that are entertaining and informative.
The first thing you need to do to be successful at writing a blog is be consistent. Timeliness is by far my biggest weakness. I won’t give you excuses, but it is by far my biggest problem.
When I have time to write something, or produce a podcast, its a great feeling. I want to do more, but again its finding the time.
So where does am I going to with all of this; Well to be honest I have not fully decided what I am going to do. But here are a few options:
- Start opening up Tasting Notes Radio to other Bloggers to post. There are a number of other excellent Wine Bloggers out there. If we combine into one blog we will be delivering information on a more regular basis. Personally I like this idea since it gets bloggers working together.
- Close down Tasting Notes Radio. Not something I want to do, but an option.
- Just keep publishing when I do have the time.
Again I have made no decision. However I am open to my friends and fellow bloggers out there for their advice.
This wine is available in most areas of the country (USA) and for the price point it’s worth checking out.
The Pierre Chainier Sauvignon Blanc is a great wine in the evening when you want to kick back and relax.
This was a nice Prosecco but nothing that amazed me. To be honest I was hoping for a lot more character however it wasn’t there. With the reputation of Santa Marghertta, I expected to get blown away. Sadly it didn’t blow me away or my mind. Don’t get me wrong it’s nice,but no different than dozens of other mass production wineries.
Nice floral bouquet with hints of strawberry.
This is a nice wine for a warm day, on a picnic or the beach.
For under $15 this is an ok wine. Nice pepper overtones and soft oak. It is very drinkable and enjoyable but will not blow you away.
In this podcast we take a look at two fantastic wines from Matchbook Wines. Also a look at a lesser known grape, Petit Verdot. Additionally wine reviews and the ROI with buying wines. Lastly a shout out to a fellow wine blogger
