Please Nominate Me!
This is my 164th post. Throughout my 4+ year journey of writing a blog, I've been blessed with the most wonderful and supportive readers...you!! Now it's time for me to ask a favor. If you're a fan of Wilma's Wine World, please click this link to visit the 2011 Wine Blog Awards web site and nominate my blog. The nomination period lasts one week and ends on May 31, 2011.

Best Single Subject Wine Blog
Best Wine Reviews on a Wine Blog
Best Industry/Business Wine Blog
Best Wine Blog Graphics, Photography and Presentation
I'm not very good at asking for help. Nor am I one to beg, plead, cajole, or beseech. I am however, humbly asking for your help to get Wilma out there in nomination land. I'm not the most techie of blogger types, nor am I as active in the blogosphere as some of my fellow wine bloggers. What I am however, is totally committed and passionate about sharing the ups, downs, successes, failures, trials, and tribulations of a lifetime spent in a family wine business. Sometimes I find myself brimming with story ideas and can hardly wait to share them with you. Then I remember, oh yea, that might piss off The Husband, The Father, The Staff, The Distributors, The Customers, The Bank, The Kids, and the myriad of other people/entities I interact with on a daily basis. Other times, Wilma is simply too busy, tired, or overwhelmed to find time to write. In the end, it's my desire to entertain, educate, shed light and inform that keeps me going. (That, and my extreme sense of guilt!)
Thanking you in advance, I remain your dedicated wine bloggerÂ Wilma.
This is a blog about what it's really like to be in the wine industry...so sit back, take a sip and enjoy!
