I missed the Irish Blog Awards 2008 last March. I wasn’t blogging and I wasn’t going out to meet people, so I let it pass me by without paying any attention.
That was a pity because I enjoyed being a judge (in one category) in 2007, and I remember fondly meeting up with Annette Clancy (Interactions), John of Dublin, Claire Wilson(Gingerpixel) and others too. If I’d been out and about this year I’d have noticed the nominees for the Best Irish Business Blog, because I like to follow cutting-edge trends.
My attitude to wine is one of admiration: I marvel at the variety of colour, smell, taste, texture and bottles in which it comes. I’m full of admiration for the makers of wine.
So when Julian got in touch with me about gardening, and I looked up his blog, I felt the universe was drawing us together. If it couldn’t get me to meet him at the Blog Awards, the garden centre would do just as well. There was to be no escaping him.
See what you think of his blog. Isn’t it all you need to develop your serious interest in wine (and your interest in how to author an excellent business blog)?
The brother and I are planning a week away together - a cookery course somewhere in Europe. So I’m getting warmed up for that by dusting off my discrimating powers in the wine arena.
If you can recommend a cookery course for cooks of middling ability, please do.
