The Wine Case at 100

As I was checking out my blog stats, this week, on the WordPress dashboard, a number caught my attention. A round number. 100, to be precise.

That’s the number of posts that have come online on The Wine Case blog since I put it online a little over a year ago – on July 10, 2007, to be precise. By an interesting coincidence, my French-language blog, À chacun sa bouteille, also reached the 100-post mark the same week, meaning I’ve posted 200 articles and notes on wine, in both languages, over the last year, at a steady clip of almost four a week . Since I have a full-time job and a family, it must mean I like doing this stuff pretty much.

Between all the tasting notes, news items, reports and reflections, I’ve had a great time discovering the online wine world, from the serious forums at the Open Wine Consortium to the fun of Twittering with fellow bloggers to the collective online tastings known as the Wine Blogging Wednesdays. And I’ll be glad to meet with some of the wine blogging community at the Wine Blogging Conference taking place in the Sonoma region in late October.

As I put up this 101st post, I’m feeling pretty good. Readership is growing at over 10% a month, on average, as dozens of visitors are turning into hundreds a week. Which means I’m not rambling on just to myself. Phew.

So cheers to everyone, on this fun little milestone. See you on the next post.
