Wow, I feel like I've hit the blog Big Leagues.  The blog meister himself,
Tom Wark of Fermentation: The Daily Wine Blog, has featured Wilma's Wine World in his recent post. For me, this is a bit like getting a 90 point score! Only it's for blogging, not for winemaking. Maybe it doesn't seem like much
to some of you, but for me, it's validation that somebody is actually reading this stuff and more importantly, they're enjoying it. Honestly, I couldn't be happier. It's just the thing I need to keep me enthusiastic and inspiredÂ…although I'm finding there's plenty of material right here under my nose!
Just like those big awards shows, I need to give credit where credit is due. My 15-year-old gets the nod for naming this blog. I agonized for months over everything from Wine, Sweat and Tears to the Reluctant Wine Blogger. When my eldest blurted out Wilma's Wine World, I knew it was just perfect. Then there's my dear family, who constantly inspire me with their ranting, raving, and amazing ability to let bygones be bygones. A very special thanks to The Husband whose love and support I've been blessed with for over 26 years. Despite our differences, we truly share the same vision. (Besides, there is no way in hell that I'd run this place by myself!) Lastly, is my staff. They're some of the most talented, passionate, and supportive people I have ever worked with. I am truly blessed.  

So, I think I'll just revel in the moment. Pour myself a glass of something special tonight. And, really enjoy it before I launch into my next topic about god knows what!

Stay tunedÂ…

Way to go Wilma - although I like "The Reluctant Wine Blogger" the best.
