I am thinking back to when I first decided I wanted to turn a wine blogger. My aim was to write about the wines I have tried and sharing where to get it from. I joined two wine clubs with the thinking that it had to be kind of fancy but not too costly. Well, that’s one of the delights of being a writer. You select your initial plans, roll up your sleeves and get to work. As you gauge your audience you are always granted to modify how you execute your plans.

So that is just what I was doing. My objective isn’t to get the attention of the upper class per say because they have steady access to premium wines. There are heap of blogs that cater to high end taste. My blog is for those who want to enjoy wine but don’t possess that high end budget.

So after a few months of being a member of two wine clubs, I resolved to venture out into stores who only carry wine and spirits and that’s how I came across a store called Total Wines. It’s a pretty large store with a vast selection. I could review wines for a reasonably long time without worrying about duplicate reviews.

I believe in enjoying life to the fullest and if you can do it on a budget, that’s even better. I was spending close to $90.00 per month for 6 bottles with the wine clubs. I looked around Total Wines and realized I could probably get more bottles a month for the price I am paying in membership dues and be able to sample some of my products before buying them. I am looking forward to the change up in my routine. I believe you all will like it as well.

As always, if you have suggestions of wine you’d like for me to try or looking for a wine suggestion, feel free to get hold of me. I am always receptive to new ideas, collaborations and sharing my knowledge with others.


Conversation Piece

What is a conversation piece and why am I adding the category to this blog? Well, realizing as I named my blog “How About Wine and Conversation”, it seemed only natural to add some posts that will stimulate conversation amongst you. When friends and associates are enjoying their wine of choice, there’s a conversation going on. It could be anything from how much they actually hate their day job to world domination.

My plan is to keep my blog politic free (been there, done that) as I find it rather exhausting, so relax, have a glass of wine and enjoy some light hearted posts here. That’s my game plan.

Got some light hearted ideas for a future post? Email me at randomsarcasm7@gmail.com and I will see what I can do.
