[This is an entry for this month’s Wine Writing Challenge #MWWC34] With love and respect to those who try to forget. Michelle was not, what you would call, a wine lover. She was neither a wine person, nor any other alcohol lover at all. She was a very sober 40-something woman, unsuccessfully trying to write her seventh novel. It was supposed to be another bestseller, yet since over a year Michelle hasn’t written even one […]
Life is full of surprises, whether you believe in it or not. Mostly, they come to us when we don’t expect them, yet often times it’s the moment when we need them the most.

I have been recently working on a post on ‘how to be effective online when writing about wine’. I started to analyze my ways to promote my wine content online. I have tried them with better or worse results with Wine-Lady.com and with other wine websites as well. Some of them worked better, some didn’t work at all.

December is usually a busy month. Not only because of the Christmas preparation but also, due to enjoying our winter holidays, we have to finish a lot of projects at work in the first half of the month. Moreover, it is the time when most of us look for presents for our beloved ones and we spend a huge amount of our free time in the shopping centers.

There are many free stock photos to use on the internet and many bloggers use them on their websites. Personally, I prefer to use my own pictures on my wine website, but I don’t mind adapting free stock pictures for WBT purposes ;) I’ve been searching for the free stock photos for wine blogs and I found some that you might be interested in.
