Jeremy’s golden rules to blog by

I’ve been trying to keep this blog impersonal but please allow me to share the “golden rules” that I try to follow when I blog.

1) remember that all blogs — wine and otherwise — are vanity blogs.
2) tell the truth and write “what you feel.”
3) avoid negativity and write about things that you do like.
4) engage in collegiality, solidarity, and camaraderie.
5) follow your palate and listen to your heart.

    Find your passion in wine and write about it – be truthful with yourself and your audience – be authentic!

    Great post. I completely agree with your rule to avoid negativity by blogging about what you like. I’ve been asked by people before why most of my posts are positive. The response, who wants to read negativity? My tastes may differ from yours. I’ll write about it and let you decide for yourself.

    Although positivity will avoid “burning bridges” (and isn’t BUILDING bridges what social media is all about?), I agree that negative blogs can be important to call attention to something and/or stir up some controversy, which is GREAT for generating buzz around a blog….
    Brings back memories of Journalism class and the “Sing or Sting” rule…
