Session Topic Ideas

Hello 2011 Wine Blogger Conference Attendees! This is your chance to suggest what topics you would like to discuss during Sunday morning’s Unconference. Vote for your favorite topic, or add your own!

I suggest you add a topic on...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Wine Blogging and the Wine Industry

      We will discuss how wine bloggers can and do interact with the wine industry. Should you as a blogger solicit samples and invitations to events? Are wineries treating you more or less like the mainstream wine press now?

      • Reaching Outside the Wine World

        Are you interacting at all with other bloggers or other industries? Do you write wine and food pairing posts, have food bloggers write guests posts, or converse with beer bloggers in your area? This conversation will revolve about whether and how these interactions could take place.
