Wine Peeps: Celebrating our 1,000th Post

By John ~ February 8th, 2012.

Today marks our 1,000th post here on Wine Peeps. That means that we have averaged 245 posts per year or 4.71 posts per week. Folks, that’s a lot of writing, mostly by Kori, and we hope it has provided a great source of wine-related info for you.

True to our mission, there have been 433 posts featuring Washington State wines and 367 posts that gave you at least one great QPR (5 bangs for your buck) wine.

Our audience has continued to grow as we not only have hundreds of email subscribers and RSS subscribers, but almost 3,000 Facebook likes and 3,500+ Twitter followers as well as a presence on Open Wine Consortium and LinkedIn.

We’ve had 117 A Wine For Tonight posts recommending a very good wine that sells for $15 or less and is widely available. Last month, we hosted our 102nd Wine Tasting Dinner, where we taste and report on six wines with a common theme that are blind tasted with one of LaGayle’s fabulous meals.

For you to get the most effective and efficient use of the info from these 1,000 posts, let me call your special attention to the “Search” box in the upper right hand corner of the Wine Peeps homepage, and the listing of “Categories” a little further down the right side of the homepage. Both of those features offer great ways to find all of our posts on a specific topic.

We are always looking for ways to improve what we do on Wine Peeps. Please tell us how you believe we can do a better job of giving you the info you want on wine, especially great QPR wines and wines from Washington State.

    Way to go! I continue to be impressed with how much content you are able to generate. I enjoy reading about the wines from some new regions as well. Keep up the good work!

    Congratulations on the 1,000 post milestone. That’s a lot of good vino and a lot of good writing. Like many wines of which you write, the QPR for Wine Peeps is off the charts!

    A thousand is a huge milestone.
    Here’s to another 1000.

    All the best,

    Thanks, Nannette. We hope to toast to another 1000 before too many more years.

    Congratulations on 1,000 posts! It isn’t an easy task. I enjoy the posts and keep up the great work. Hailing from the East Coast I don’t get a lot recommendations for Washington wines…although Chateau Ste Michelle is a favorite.

    Paul and Witless Whiner,
    Thanks for your kind words about our blog. We’ll continue to try to live up to your high expectations!
