1WineDude TV Episode 23: Sharing the Wine Love (Going Pro in Porto)

Vinted on December 15, 2010 binned in 1WineDude TV, going pro, on the road

I hope you’ll forgive the low production quality and complete lack of credits/intro/music in this vid – I’ve had a pretty difficult time trying to post this from Portugal (due in part to a busy schedule with few breaks, fewer Internet access points, and a rather massive laptop PC crash… the HORROR!).

Anyway, I felt it important in the Going Pro saga to report in from Portugal while I was still actually in Portugal – and especially since I was here in a “pro” context.  In the short vid, I talk about a few of the inspirational things that struck me during the conference (most of which consisted of me getting to hang with some seriously talented MW peeps).  As always, I welcome your thoughts and comments, so long as they’re not about my hair or the fact that I had to whisper since I was recording this vid early in the morning!).

Cheers!

1WineDudeTV Episode 22: Wine Blogger Welfare (or “What Doesn’t Work In Wine Blog Advertising”)

Vinted on November 24, 2010 binned in 1WineDude TV, going pro

In the latest Going Pro series installment, I talk about what works (and doesn’t work!) for advertising on wine blogs.  Why? Because YOU asked for it!

I also engage in some very, very strange dancing behavior which I hope doesn’t offend anyone. (Sorry!).

Have a safe & happy Turkey Day, people!

Mentioned in this episode:

Cheers!

1WineDude TV Episode 21: Pickin’ Battles (Or “Where You Should Be Spending Time When It Comes To Pro Wine Blogging”)

Vinted on November 17, 2010 binned in 1WineDude TV, going pro, wine blogging

In the second video installment in my Going Pro series, I talk (from y favorite reading chair!) about the difficulties in treating a blog as a business, I offer a killer book recommendation for budding wine bloggers, explain that you probably suck at marketing and need to get better, and share what aspects of wine blogging I will be focusing my time on as I continue to “go pro.”

Cheers!

1WineDude TV Episode 20: A Simple Way To Vastly Improve Your Wine Writing (Going Pro)

Vinted on November 10, 2010 binned in 1WineDude TV, going pro, wine blogging

In this episode of 1WineDude TV, we’ve got our first video in my on-going Going Pro saga, in which I talk about something very simple that every budding wine writer should do to vastly increase their writing skills.

A couple of points for you before watching:

  1. The reason I’m flushed and sweating (gross!) in this vid is that just before filming it I ran for three miles, showered, and then got dressed and jumped in front of the camera – basically, I didn’t give myself any real cool-down time.  I know, rookie error… just try to ignore it…
  2. This advice is going to seem obvious and maybe even stupid to a lot of people.  If you’re among their ranks, rather than tell me I’m a shallow idiot in the comments, I humbly suggest that you forward this advice to a blogging friend who needs to see it – and I personally guarantee that you know more than one who needs to see this (if I’m wrong, then you can call me an idiot in the comments!).

Mentioned in this vid:

Cheers!
