Guest Post: Taylor Eason of TaylorEason.com
Thanks Andy, for reaching out. I’ve also been watching everyone’s movement and am psyched that we’re all doing pretty darn well.
It hasn’t been a year for me yet… I joined very late in the game (in May of last year). An update on what I’m up to:
Since I made top fifty w/ MG, I left the newspaper I wrote a wine column for and went out on my own (there’s this thing called downsizing in the print word, you see). I then relaunched my website (www.tayloreason.com) where I blog daily and continue to see growth in eyeballs. The blogiverse is a sooo crowded right now and it’s definitely not shrinking but might as people realize the money isn’t flowing like wine from California. It will be an interesting year coming up.
To pay the bills, I write freelance wine/spirits/beer columns, consult with restaurants on their wine lists and marketing, teach wine classes to consumers (and soon, servers – lord knows they need it!) and am working on a book that’s completely unrelated to wine. Busy, busy… drinking a TON of wine and lovin’ not working for the man… at the moment.
Cheers to you and all other MG peeps!
