Fast forward 2 years and my tasting notes still live in scrappy notebooks and random bits of paper (until I am organised enough to transfer them online) but the whole setting and motivation has changed.
What has kept me going, and something I didn’t count on, was the discovery – through the intractions on here – of a whole tribe of wine wankers (just like me), professional or amateur, who similarly got home every night, opened a bottle of wine and then wrote about what happened next.
From an outsiders perspective, the whole idea of ‘blogging’ is still viewed as an outlet for vainglorious amateurs and one eyed fools (and there is plenty of both out there, some might even think I fit in there). Yet I can say with confidence that some of the best entertainment, information and interesting opinions can be found on blogs/blog style websites and (notably) the comments/interactions found on these ‘web-logs’
I can only hope that this little website is one of them….
