President Obama and the wine blogging community have a lot in common. Weâ€™ve both come to the forefront in the last few years with a flourish of hope, excitement, and promise of great things to come. Unfortunately, just as with Obama, most bloggers have proven more adept at spending than generating income.
Just as most politicians donâ€™t pay enough attention to the average taxpayer, I donâ€™t believe that most wine blogs pay enough attention to the average wine consumer. I read quite a few wine blogs on a regular basis, and most of them are written to appeal to the professional wine trade, wineries, or other bloggers. Too many others seem to believe that sexual innuendo, profanity, and even plagiarism is the key to success.
We try very hard to write Wine Peeps for the wine consumer, and write in a way that is family-friendly. In addition to our extensive number of wine reviews with QPR ratings, we have a number of regular features designed specifically for the wine consumer: A Wine for Tonight, Wine Word of the Week, Challenging Wine Pairing, Wine Tasting Dinner recaps, Tasting Group recaps, Wine Event recaps, Great Washington Wine Available in [insert city], Women of Washington Wine, Spotlight On, and Wine Book Reviews.
Our mission at Wine Peeps is to be â€œYour link to great QPR wines from Washington State and beyond.â€ If you believe we are straying from that objective, please let us know so we can get back on track.
Thank you for reading. Cheers!
