I’m on a bit of a hiatus right now from travel photography, so the Tanager Blog has slowed down significantly. What hasn’t slowed down, is interest in these blog posts. Thanks to all of you … I’m honored that so many people continue to read about these trips.
I wanted to take a moment and plug my newest project — another website, this time, more specific in nature.
It’s called Opening a Bottle, and its a tribute to wine, food and the places it takes us. I started it two weeks ago as a way to showcase my food-and-beverage writing skills (my day job is as a Content Strategist and Content Developer, and I’m angling for more gigs in this sector). The posts are generally shorter, most are about wine and cooking at home, and as a result, it will probably be updated more frequently. It’s given me a reason to be more active on twitter (you can follow me @openingabottle) and it’s also given me a crash course in WordPress’ premium themes … so I may just redesign The Tanager Blog in the near future.
Here’s a taste:
