I've offered to host and promote the second version of the Wine Blogging Wednesday which occurred last week. It was a lot of fun to see various bloggers reviewing wines around a theme on the same day. We had about 13 participants last time and I hope to see more this time -- we have a ways to go before we catch up with the incredibly popular Is My Blog Burning?
How WBW Works:
Each month we choose a theme. This month will be Spanish Red wine.
On the first Wednesday of the month (October 6th) you post a blog entry on your blog with a review of a wine that fits the theme. At the very least, tell us what the wine was and how you liked it. If you can take photos of the wine and do some research to find "official" tasting notes, scores, or other information about the wine, even better.
Send me a note or a trackback ping to this entry to let me know you are participating, and then on October 6th, send me an e-mail to make sure I know about your blog entry. I'll send out a reminder the week before.
One or two days later I will post a round-up of all the reviews for everyone's benefit.
It's that easy, and should be a lot of fun. Remember that you don't have to know squat about wine in general, or about the specific wine that you choose, just have fun drinking it and write about your experience on your blog.
If you have any questions let me know. See you online 4 weeks from today!
