Perks of Guest Posting

If you live in Vancouver, there are always wine tastings, lunches and promotional events you’ll have access to, more than I can attend.

You’ll get winery tours and possibly media wine discounts. Sometimes, bottles of wine arrive by mail.

Guest bloggers receive full credit for posts with links in your Author Bio in the footer. Each post creates a high quality link pointing to your own site.

If you are a new writer or blogger, we’ll coach you on developing your writing style and blogging technique.

Contact Me

If all that sounds good, please email me (mari (at) telling me about yourself, and send a sample post on a drinks-related topic. Show me your style so I can see if there’s a fit.

If so, I’ll ask for a list of topics you’d like to write about in the future. I’ll ask for a bio, a gravatar, and your preferred blogging schedule.

If you’re local, maybe we can meet for a glass of wine.

So, email me and become a guest blogger. You’ll love it!

If you are a subscriber to Tasting Room Confidential, please re-opt in here before I dump that old spammer-ridden email list. Cheers!
