I came, I saw, I drank a lot of Pinot Noir.

Last week the 2012 Wine Bloggers’ Conference was held in Portland, Oregon. This was my second time to attend the conference, the first having been the 2010 conference in Walla Walla. WBC12, as the attendees referred to the conference, was a fantastic mixture of fellowship, education, and party. I was probably more desirous of coming away from this conference having learned something to sharpen my craft than I was two years ago, and true to that desire, I gained a lot from this gathering.

Much like I had hoped that it would, my trip to the Wine Bloggers’ Conference in Portland last week has renewed my energy and desire to get back into a consistent form of blogging. I came away with a number of ideas that I am really excited about, and I hope to start acting on those in the next couple of weeks. That being said, I am about to get very busy. I will be starting work on my first full harvest in a matter of a week or two, which will pretty much mean that my new place of residence for the next couple of months will be the winery. I am going to try to document my harvest experience here, but I also have some other posts that I want to get out in the next few weeks. I have a couple of posts that I’m really excited about that I have mostly finished, but that I wanted to edit a little further. This post mostly serves the purpose of letting you all know that I will be targeting a couple of posts a week. I will probably be targeting more long-form posts that are column-like in nature. I came away from the conference with a Randall Grahm initiated desire to only write if my writing has meaning and if I am adding something of beauty and/or significance to the online world. Hopefully you will enjoy it, but I know I will enjoy writing it.

Catch you on the flipside.
