It’s true, I’ve been missing from this blog for a couple of weeks, but there is a good reason naturally.
As you may or may not know, in 2009, my blogging colleague Megan and I started the Wine bloggers Conference Scholarship Fund. Four years later, we never dreamed that this pet project would be as big, and take as much work as it does today. Since I am a staff of one, some things have to be put on the back burner, and alas, my personal blog is one of them. For those who don’t know, this fund is dedicated to helping wine bloggers (and travel/food bloggers) with financial assistance in attending the annual Wine Bloggers Conference, a gathering of wine, food and travel bloggers as well as industry representatives.
This year, we will be gathering in Portland, OR in August. As we are in crunch time with profiles, arrangements, packing, etc., I’ve been steaming along over here.
But I’ll be back soon! Look for reports from the field in the Willamette Valley stating August 12th!
