I've been remiss in mentioning all the great chances around the wine blogosphere for you to participate. Its been a busy 2008. Here's the roundup.
- Over at El Bloggo Torcido.. there is what I'm sure will become the Infamous Take your Rubber Chicken to Work Day Contest. Send in your photo or video of you and your rubber chicken at work and get a prize.
- Over course there is the clever challenge thrown down by Andrew over at Spittoon for everyone to review an Italian Red in Just Seven Words. Wine Blogging Wednesday posts are due Feb 13th.
- Feb 23rd is Open that Bottle Night. OTBN is always the last Saturday in February and was the creation of Wall Street Columnists,Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher. This should give you a great excuse to open that special bottle you keep saving. Wine is meant to be enjoyed not kept as a trophy. Farley is showing her support and having a contest over at Behind the Vines. You can win two bottles of unreleased Rosenblum wines just for commenting on what you are planning to drink. Check out the rules here. Seems like a great deal to me, open up 1 bottle, and you could get 2 to replace it. I'm debating between opening a Doyle Pinot Noir from Fiddlehead or my last 1997 Buttonwood Cabernet Sauvignon.
- Lenndevours is asking for a New logo for Wine blogging Wednesday and has kicked off a contest over at his blog. Submissions are due March 31st and I believe a few generous people have kicked in some great prizes.
As you can see there are lots of creative ways to participate in the Wine 2.0 Conversation. Make 2008 the year you were photographed with a rubber chicken, drinking that wine you've been saving, while designing a new logo for WBC. At the very least find seven words to describe that Italian Red and read more about in Vino Italiano for the Wine Book Club by Feb 26th.
