Hello World?? 1WD? WTF?!?? (or "We’re Movin’ On Up!")

Vinted on February 10, 2009 binned in about 1winedude blog

Those of you who have been trying to visit www.1WineDude.com today have probably noticed that it looks a little… well… screwed up.

And I mean, more screwed up than usual.

That’s because 1WineDude.com is in the process of moving. This little blog is gettin’ all grows up’d, and is (finally) moving to its own web host on the WordPress platform.

Why am I doing this?

Mostly because Blogger, the platform that I’ve used for a few different blogs for several years, has gone kind of crazy lately, and continues to tag my blog as SPAM and locking it. Now, I know that some of my posts don’t make a lot of sense, but hitting me with a SPAM tag is probably taking things a tad too far.

Anyway, in the not too distant future, www.1WineDude.com will no longer send you here. It will send you to a brand new website. Different look, same content.

Or, as they say: New Label. Same Old Plonk!

For now, 1WineDude.com will take you to a generic WordPress template. Hello World! Just like the Jeffersons, we’re movin’ on up!

Cheers!

My Take On Wine Blogging at WineBlogger.info

Hey – ever wonder what I think about wine blogging?

No? Really?

Oh, well – just in case you change your mind: I recently asked to help start up responses to questions about wine blogging by the fine folks over at WineBlogger.info.

Or maybe I was just the first one to see the request and respond. Not sure.

Anyway, you can check out my responses to their questions on wine blogging here – and as always, you’re welcome to join in the discussion yourself (whether here or at WineBlogger.info).

Cheers!

1WD @ WCD!

Vinted on January 22, 2009 binned in about 1winedude blog

Hey Y’all (did I just type “Y’all”?) -

A quick hit to let you know that my first piece for WCDish.com is now available on the WC Dish website.

The article details a recent dining adventure I shared with WC Dish founder and Dishious vlog star Mary B. at the Philly-area Asian-fusion spot Teikoku, during which we sampled on-menu items paired with specific selections from Teikoku’s new “elements”-inspired wine list.

Much goofiness ensued.

Though I regretfully report to you that, despite the clear and irresistible opportunity that the wine list presented us to make serious Earth Wind & Fire references, at no time during the dinner did I don a glitter cape and silver space-man jumpsuit.

Oh well…

I hope to make restaurant-hopping wine-list reviews with Mary for WC Dish a regular occurence. Enjoy…

Cheers!

More Mutineer LUV

Vinted on January 2, 2009 binned in about 1winedude blog, wine publications

A quick hit to let you know that an interview with the Dude here has been posted on the Mutineer Magazine blog.

The interview provides some insight into the genesis of 1WineDude.com, and why I’m still at it, and is also notable for my blabbering, almost Sarah Palin-esque responses to some of the questions.

Because, like, uhmmm, you know, it’s really all about job creation, right?

Anyway, if you want to know more about Mutineer, you can also check out a detailed interview with Mutineer Mag editor Alan Kropf in a recent episode on The New Wine Consumer podcast (embeded version below).

Thanks again to Mutineer for the LUV!
