This Journey Called Blogging

Posted on

I’m so excited to announce that I am officially going to the 2014 Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara this July! Not only am I looking forward to going to my first conference as a wine blogger, but also visiting Santa Barbara for the very first time. I even booked a room at the Days Inn Windmill Buellton, featured in the film Sideways.

I’m obviously looking forward to tasting food and wine, and experiencing Santa Barbara county, but I’m most excited about meeting other wine bloggers like myself. When I started this food and wine blog two years ago, I knew that I was embarking on something fun that would also help to exercise my writing skills. What I did not know was how important this blog would become to me, especially in regards to finding ways to relate to my readers.

Of course I like to experiment in the kitchen and visit new wineries, but now there is more motivation and purpose behind it. I think to myself, will this be something that is as meaningful to my readers as it is to me? Am I providing content that is unique and interesting? And most of all, how can I improve my blog and garner more readers?

So I will embark on this Wine Bloggers Conference with an open and eager mind, and I hope to come away with new tools (and blogger friends) that will inspire me to excel in this journey.

As always, feedback is encouraged in the comments section (and let me know if you’re attending the conference too!). I look forward to sharing my experiences at WBC with you dear readers! Until then, I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
