The Complete List of Wine Blogs

clutter.jpgI never thought this day would come. Really. When I started Vinography more than four years ago, part of my inspiration was the fact that when I typed "wine blog" into Google, I got zero results. I did the same with all the major blogging sites/services and came up pretty much empty handed. There were one or two wine blogs that had been started several months earlier, but they had been abandoned.

So I started tapping out my thoughts about in my own little dark corner of the Internet, assuming that in a while I'd have one or two friends join me in the adventure of blogging about wine.

Four years and three months later I've got 638 friends, and sadly, there's just not room enough for them on the front page of my web site any more. Not to mention the fact that Google is getting increasingly persnickety about which sites it likes and which sites it doesn't, partially based on the time it takes to load the first page.

So I've had to create The Complete List of Wine Blogs, which is where you'll want to go if you want to keep track of them all. I'll continue to post the newest ones (that I know about) in the left hand bar of my site, but if you feel like trolling the depths, you'll need to do that from the big list. Happy surfing!

We started our site in 2000 and blogging was more in the form of people leaving comments on our guestbook or feedback was directly contacting us by email. I am sure there are older sites that were never classified as "blogs".

Alder:

I looked through the Complete List of Wine Blogs. I think you are missing four of them.

Just a heads up.

WinoBob,

No, that wasn't blogging. That was a wine site with a guestbook. Wine sites existed almost as soon as the web was invented. Blogs didn't come around or for another 18 years or so, and they are different beasts. Not better or worse or special, just different.

WAAAAA! Since I'm already third from the bottom of your "newly discovered" list, I guess that means I'll join the Big List Depths in a few minutes. At least my mom has seen my blog. Thanks for publicizing all of us, though.

Impressive, a great work, Alder: the only thing we can do, right now, it's to advertise your blog's list in our own blogs, in order that everybody could be aware about its existence and, if necessary, could complete it.
All the best!
