Here’s the latest incarnation of the Wineblogger.info list of blogs. So far, we’re over 100 strong and growing, even though I know there are several sites not listed on here. If you are one of the sites listed and notice one that we’ve missed, please let us know asap, and we’ll get it up there as fast as we can. So skim the list and then I have a few comments and questions for all of you.

First off, this year is going to, if the planets align right, be a very good year for Wine Bloggers. I believe more and more of us will begin to get the recognition that I think so many of us deserve. I also think that the main “non-geek” public will start to feel a greater influence from us as they find our information rising closer to the top of the major search engines, leaving main stream wine rags to suffer the loss of “search engine traffic”. That said, I also hope, time willing, to finally unite The Wine Blog Atlas and Wineblogger.info. How you ask? Well, it’s still a bit of a surprise, but I will say that our goal is to make the Wine Blog Atlas more interactive so as to allow wine bloggers to control what goes on in their pop-up window. In this way, we will have a Wine Blogger directory that is searchable and categorized to allow people to search for a wine blogger whose content fits the reader’s interests. Also, as my original mission statement talked about, I want to offer a place to where you can find experts on a given wine topic. Think of it as a Wine Geek Directory.
Now this might take some time. So far, this is only a labor of love with no financial backing. If you want to help, you can put a wine blogger logo on your site, Sponsor this Site,buy a Shirt or a Mug. Any little thing helps!
We do have a few questions though. What do you fellow wine bloggers and geeks alike hope to see from a directory like this? What kind of control do you want in your pin’s pop-up? Where do you hope to see wine blogging go this coming year? So far this year seems to be off to a good start with some fun things happening around the Wine-Blog-o-Sphere: A Book club, Backlash, Lament, more WBW and so much more. Anything I forgot to mention? Any memes that need to be discussed? Collaborations that need to happen? Thoughts? Is there anything we should collectively promote with this site?
So in the end this is just a quick note to let you all know that Wineblogger.info is still kicking and growing. Remember if your not on the list, please do not be offended, all you need to do is send me an email and I’ll fix it right away. If you can include a link to your site in this format it would really help too(remove the spaces):
