Lots of happenings in and around the Wine Blog World this week. I’ll start with requesting some support for folks.
In case you hadn’t yet heard, Murphy-Goode Winery is offering the most amazing job to someone who wants to blog/twitter/ustream/etc. their experience living and working at Murphy Goode. $10,000 a month, plus housing and you get to live in Northern California and work at the winery.
Applications are rolling in and I’m supporting my friend Hardy of Dirty South Wine. If you haven’t checked out Hardy’s blog Dirty South Wine, you’re missing out. Hardy produces a quality piece of work, minus the pretension and snobbery of wine and full of hilariousness…is that a word? Well it is now. His video application is just one example of his off the cuff, in the trenches, funny approach to the world of wine. Watch here, and vote for HARDY!
Next, I just wrote today about the Wine Blogger Conference Scholarship fund. Please consider digging deep and donating a few dollars to help some really worthy wine bloggers attend the Wine Blogger Conference this year.
Then, don’t forget that Wine Blogging Wednesday #57: California Inspiration happens this coming Wednesday. Check out Good Grape for all the details and join us with your inspiring CA wine this Wednesday.
Finally, Vintank has released their long awaited and anticipated white paper on wine social media. If you are a winery, a winery pr firm, a wine writer, even if you are tangentially related to wine and are reading this blog (yay, congrats, you’re doing social media) you should probably visit Vintank and download the report. Oh, and read it to…some good stuff in there.
