It's been a long time since I found out anything about my readers, other than the glimpses I get of you from your comments here. In fact, that last time I conducted a survey was a mere 18 months after I started blogging, when there were still only about a couple dozen wine blogs on the Internet.
A lot has changed since then, but I'm still here plonking away, expressing my passion for wine by writing here every day.
But I'm curious about who you are, how you got here, and why. So I'm hoping I can convince you to spend 3 or 4 minutes of your time to play Twenty Questions with me. (OK, it's actually 36, but I swear it won't take more than four minutes of your time).
And to help encourage you to spend those three minutes, I've got an offer for you. I have six pairs of tickets (total of 12) for the ZAP Zinfandel Festival that's coming up on the 29th of January here in San Francisco.
Everyone who fills out the survey (and tells me they want the tickets) will be entered into a random drawing to win a pair of tickets, either to the Friday Good Eats pairing or to the Saturday Grand Tasting.
Regardless, I really appreciate your time and honesty in filling this out.
