Uncorked: Wine Bloggers Open Up, Get Noticed - Page 2
Those that share their love of wine through the written word are also asking the same question as others who have labored for years online: Are blogs dead? Wine blogger Michael Wangbickler, who shares secrets and insights about the wine industry as a whole, writes in his blog Through The Bunghole, his take on this question:
"...I prefer to think of blogging as having evolved, rather than died. People are still blogging and creating great content. The evolution has come in the form of how these writers now interact with their readers. Once upon a time, a blog’s success could be measured by how many and the quality of the comments they incurred on certain posts. Some blogs still receive comments, but most don’t garner as much as they once did. Instead, readers are now interacting more on social sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. So, in a way, blogging has grown beyond the blog itself, in essence decentralizing the conversation."
As you can see from Wangbickler's thoughtful commentary, many wine bloggers are insightfully aware of far more than just what's in the glass in front of them. Wine bloggers, like successful bloggers in any area of endeavor, are taking advantage of social's tools to take the conversations directly to their audience in a far more responsive manner.
