Tuesday, November 11th, 2008 | Wine Blogs
OK, OK, it’s time to come clean. I really do have a reason for neglecting my wine blog. The truth is that I am pregnant, which kind of takes the fun out of wine blogging. I happen to be of the belief that a glass of wine with dinner is acceptable while pregnant, but only later in the pregnancy. I am just over 10 weeks along, so my personal choice is to abstain for now. Though I can still taste and spit if Drew has opened a bottle of something interesting. When I was pregnant with our second baby, he didn’t drink much else than Gallo Burgundy in the jug. He felt bad opening anything “good.” I certainly don’t expect him to do that this time around!
Of course I now face the dilemma of what to do with this blog. I am considering skewing the focus towards food for the time being (thanks to Richard for the suggestion). After all, I do still eat. Randy of Wine Biz Radio commented on Twitter that he would find wine tasting from the perspective of a pregnant woman interesting — would wines taste the same as they did before the pregnancy? I might be able to incorporate that as well. If Drew opens a bottle we’ve had before I can swirl and spit and then compare notes.
So I hope you’ll bear with me as I temporarily retool the blog! Thanks
