100 Blog Post’s Later

100 So, I hit the century mark.  100 post to my blog.  I kind of can’t believe it and it kind of snuck up on me.

Looking back at the first 100 posts, I have noticed something about them; Some silly, some moronic, some stories, some personal, some out there and mostly reviews.  ALOT of reviews.

When a television show runs it’s 100 episode, they sometimes bring on a special guest or they may have a reunion like show or they may have a retrospective show.  That’s not what I did, I did something that I was comfortable doing.

My 100th post may have been boring, may have been the same old stuff or it may have been comfortable.  We all get comfortable and sometimes we don’t know how not to be.  If I was on Top Chef, I would have been told I did something “Safe” 

So I threw the tasting notes out the window with the 100th post.  I am going to try new things here.  I will be doing notes and tastings.  I will continue to walk around wine shops and pickup the new local wine, and of course I will let you all know about it.

But, I need to take this to the next level.  What is that level?; I have no idea.  But I am hoping that you and me will find it together, along the way as I continue to discover the wonderful things that Long Island Wine Country has to offer.

Sometimes I wish I had an editor who said, “Michael, go out the XYZ vineyards and find out what they are up to.”  But when I sit down at my desk, there is only one desk in my “office”.  So I may turn to you my readers to let me know what YOU want to hear and what YOU want to read about.  I know that I want to explore more vineyards.  And I want to let you get to know the people behind the label and the bottle.

There are some of you out there who inspired me to do this.  You know who you are.  And I thank you for that.

So in the next few weeks, you may notice some different things, and maybe not.  I wanted to be truer to my blog name and really undertake wine.

Here is looking at my next 100…onward and upward!
