For 2011 I resolve to read more of my friends’ blogs, newsletters, and websites. Previously I mostly waited till some link showed up in twitter and I just happen to see it before is passes by. But I have some great friends who are very talented writers and deserve more than just my occasional notice. I invite you to add these folks to your favorites and follow them on Twitter and/or Friend them on Facebook.
One such friend is @TheGonzoMama or Christina-Marie Wright She is a mother, a vegan, a wine lover, a writer, a blogger and a friend. I first met Christina-Marie at the tasting room of Edmonds Winery in Woodinville and knew her as an attractive mother of seven children. I later got to know her better through Twitter, Facebook and her tremendously humorous book "Everything Everything I Need to Know About Motherhood I Learned from Animal House." As I have a vegetarian son I look forward to her veggie recipes and her humorous take on parenthood.
Margot Savell is another of my friends I have made through Twitter, @WriteForWine is her Twitter moniker. Margot is a very talented writer originally from Canada and now thankfully a Puget Sound resident. Margot is very active in the local wine community and great person to know.
One of my earliest Twitter friends is Shona Milne, @Shona425 a Woodinville local and great supporter of the local wine community. Her website Woodinville Wine Update is widely read and good reading. Shona is always a welcome face to see at many local wine events and always has the scoop on what’s happening.
A relatively new friend is Sean Sullivan the author of the Washington Wine Report and @WaWineReport on Twitter. His blog is a very extensive review of both eastern and western Washington wines.
Then I have some not as local friends who have some very interesting blogs, Josh Wade, AKA @NectarWine has a blog and tasting room in Spokane Washington. And one of my favorite unconventional writers Randy Watson or as many know him; The Wine Whore from my home state of Florida he takes the snobbery out of wine tasting and keeps me laughing.
Well this incomplete list is just a beginning of my list of frineds and I hope you check back so I can share more with you. If you have a blog let me know so I can check it out.
