Confessions of a wine publicist, social media junkie

My wine blog has allowed for me to get my “stuff” out there.

That’s what writers do, get the stuff from inside of themselves into the outside by communicating.

And, now this blog is six years old. As I sit here eating a spring salad that Mother Nature and I’ve just grown, and thinking about writing…

Just how much do I still feel like doing with this hobby/journal? I’m loving my garden, I thought…

Then I thought…

Even The Maharishi Goes On Television

And had a good laugh.

We’re all such social junkies. Oh, what a great title, I can use that someday.

So, I came onto the back end of my blog, and as I was writing Even The Maharishi Goes On Television, I had another thought…

A better title would be Confessions of a wine publicist, social media junkie, because I’ve written a ton of draft titles, always thinking,

Some day I’d like get “into” this.

But, I’m loving my garden so much that I’m going to give you – my friends – that list, so you can laugh with me, as I weed these blog weeds out. This short list fills in for “the long it?” (I’ve got plenty more, but I won’t bore you.)

  1. Starbucks and Wine, bring it on
  2. Dewey Decimal System and other dinosaurs
  3. The Cast Away ~ Grape Leaves
  4. Irish Setter Story
  5. Grammar Check ~ A great laugh for the day… But, is it really all that funny for the sake of our language?
  6. Traditional Media vs. Social Media ~ Do PR people handle the needs of each differently?
  7. The Injustice of my Youth ~ It’s a Bird Story
  8. If someone handcrafted it, I feel a responsibility to *really* enjoy it
  9. Giving them hell, and having them looking forward to the ride…
  10. Reflections of an extraordinarily ordinary week in the life of a wine publicist, circa 2011

Nothing earth shattering, just all stream of consciousness “stuff” that each story brings up so many thoughts.

Now, I need some wine and back to the garden.

  1. I love this post, Jo. I have a long list of blog titles; some of the posts are even half-written. 🙂
