Happy 4th Birthday Drink What You Like

If not for that ‘ting‘ sound a glass makes when lightly tapped with a piece of silverware I use for iCal reminders, this blog’s 4th birthday — like the 2nd and 3rd — would likely have been forgotten.

Four years ago today (or, yesterday) I started Drink What You Like wine blog with this post on June 29, 2008.

Since blogging about wine blogging is passé — and my goodness I don’t want to be passé — I won’t subject you to a ‘how much wine blogging has changed in the last four years‘ type of post.

I’m all about avoiding passé but not the cliche — so I will say that the last four years have flown by, literally.

Though not always evident from my postings here, I’ve learned a lot about the infinite subject of wine since my first post four years ago and am fortunate to have made some great friendships along the way.  This blog is also responsible for exploring and developing a true appreciation for the wines of my home state as well as the passionate people that have made (and continue to make) the Virginia wine industry one of the most exciting emerging regions in the wine world.

In the spirit of not being passé or belaboring this small milestone too much, I would like to say thank you to all people that take their time to read Drink What You Like (even those few nosey co-workers 😉 ) and share their thoughts in the comments here.   Cheers!
