We just wrapped our #winePW 8 event on Saturday, so I'm ready to extend the invitation for next month's adventure. I'm hostess!
Join us for #winePW 9...
'It's All About Romance' Wine Pairings
So, for February's iteration of #winePW, I'm inviting all my blogging pals to share their favorite romantic recipes with a wine pairing. Share aphrodisiac foods or just your favorite recipes to eat with your sweetheart on Wine Pairing Weekend 9, "It's All About Romance - Food + Wine Pairings." It's happening on Saturday, February 14.
Before I get into the nitty-gritty about how you can join us for #winePW 9, let me give a shout out to the bloggers who just joined us for the January #winePW event: It’s Okay to Eat the Cupcake; Culinary Adventures with Camilla; Grape Experience; Take A Bite Out of Boca; Wild For Washington Wine; Enoflyz Wine Blog; Tasting Pour; Curious Cuisiniere; A Day on the Life of the Farm; Cooking Chat Food; Vino Travels ; food wine click; Rockin Red Blog; and, our hostess last month, Confessions of a Culinary Diva. It's a great group, and we'd love to add you to the list for #winePW 9 if you are a blogger!
Details for participation
Are you ready to jump in and participate in the ninth #winePW? Here are the details…
Send an email to tell me you're in: Include your blog url, Twitter handle, link to your Pinterest profile, and any other social media detail. If you know your blog post title now, include that...but you can send me that a bit closer to the event, I'd like to get a sense of who's participating and give some shoutouts and links as we go. The email is constantmotioncamilla AT gmail.com.
Send your post title to me by Monday, February 9, to be included in the preview post. I will do a preview post shortly after getting the titles, linking to your blogs. Your title should include " #winePW " (Note: I'd like us all to use the hashtag in the title to make it easier to see the posts getting shared on Twitter).
Publish your post between 12:01 a.m-7:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday, February 14. You can always schedule your post in advance if you will be tied up around then.
Include a link to the other #winePW participants in your post, and a description of what the event is about. I'll provide the html code you can easily put in your initial post--which will link to people's general blog url--then updated code for the permanent links to everyone's #winePW posts.
Get social! After the posts go live, please visit your fellow bloggers posts' to comment and share. I'll follow-up later with some specific strategies for that social sharing.
Sponsored posts OK if clearly disclosed. Please be sure to disclose if your post is sponsored or if you are describing wine or other products for which you have received a free sample.
Live #winePW Twitter Chat February 14, 11 a.m. ET: Participating bloggers and others interested in the subject will connect via a live Twitter chat. It's a nice bring way to bring in others interested in the subject who didn't get a chance to share a blog post. You can definitely still join the blog event if you're not available for the live chat.
Highlights on WinePairingWeekend.com: Some #winePW participants will be invited to have their posts featured on the Wine Pairing Weekend site. The goal of the site is to create a growing database of great pairings for a wide variety of wines and food. You can let David know if you're interested in having your post included on the site. He’s at winepairingweekend AT gmail.com.
OK, that's all I can think of for now. For more of the backstory on Wine Pairing Weekend, check out David’s original post introducing the idea. Please let me know your thoughts and questions in the comments; or you can also email me at is constantmotioncamilla AT gmail.com. Cheers!
