Hi, my friends ~ welcome back! Hope 2014 is off to a great start for you. How about the bad news first, then the good news?
Here’s how my tech whiz broke it to me, after I’d told her that my website had evaporated into the blogosphere (and she’d just discovered my backup didn’t work)…
“I guess I’ll just blurt it out,” she said. “Unfortunately, everything’s gone. And I can’t get it back.” 🙁
Well, you know what “they” say about life giving you lemons? I guess it’s time for me to whip up some brand-new, extra-tasty lemonade. (Metaphorically, at least.)
In other words, I’ll take this as a chance for a fresh, fun, brand-new start!
Don’t worry ~ the basics won’t change. I’ll still bring you choice “insider” content from the Wine Country and beyond.
You’ll still have a (virtual) “all-access pass” to events such as private tastings, wine-and-food festivals, professional wine competitions (I’m a certified judge) ~ even my own kitchen, where I’ll share my recipes with you.
So, what’s new and different? First, the name. Sure, RosinaWilson.com serves the purpose ~ but it could be about, well, just about anything.
On the other hand, my actual message of great eats and drinks comes through ~ loud and clear ~ with my new, trademarked title: DrinkWineWithDinner®.com.
(BTW, I *welcome* your comments, questions and suggestions for what you’d like to see in future posts. Just scroll down to the “Comments” box below and leave me a message, or email me at Rosina@RosinaWilson.com, with DrinkWineWithDinner®.com in the Subject line.)
You’ll notice a new look and feel at DrinkWineWithDinner®.com, with added goodies such as “Tuesday Tasting Tips” and “Friday Feasts.” Even “Weekend Wayback,” which unearths fun stuff from the archives.
I’ll also launch my fun, interactive Drink Wine With Dinner® Club. It features cool “Simultasting” video webinars (where I’ll guide you through “edutaining” tastings of wines you can even buy straight from the winery). And you’ll enjoy wine-and-food content ~ including my own original recipes and wine-pairing tips ~ found nowhere else.
Want to reserve your place in my (virtual) tasting room? Just head to the handy “Sign Me UP!” sidebar (above right), and fill in your name and email.
You’ll receive your (free) Drink Wine With Dinner® Club membership (with access to the Simultastings), plus a subscription to my WineFoodBUZZ newsletter. And plenty more.
Check back soon for the latest news. Or just sign up ~ and the news will come to you!
Meanwhile, I look forward to enjoying plenty of “Wine, Food and Fun” with you in 2014!
Cheers, my friend ~
PS ~ There’s even more in store this year ~ including a big, multi-media food-and-wine-pairing book, and an eBook series (including Kindle, mobile, and pdf versions) of luscious pasta recipes.
Just sign up ~ above right ~ and I’ll keep you posted!
