Establishing My Niche in Seattle’s Social Media World… With Wine Passion!

I have decided to delve into the creation of a social media presence by doing what I do best… talking about wine! I came to Seattle in 2004 to get a MA in Anthropology. Always having had an interest in wine, I decided to hook up with a local Bellingham wine shop to stock shelves for an extra few hours a week for pocket change. One thing led to another, and before long I was teaching and co-teaching wine classes, administering major weekend theme tasting events, organizing wine classes and dinners, leading tours to Woodinville etc. I had become completely immersed in the WA wine culture. Realizing that the part time job wouldn’t cut it once I got my degree, I moved on to a corporate gig. Long story short… during this time I became fascinated by this ‘lil thing called Social Media (see my blog video “What the F is Social Media” for more info). Even though I have great experience developing my skills as @FertilAid Amy, one of the top infertility presences in Social Media, I had not created my own presence. Well it’s time folks. Good-bye FertilAid Amy, hello @SeattleWineGal. I can’t think of anything more fun than blogging and tweeting about Seattle area wineries. 1. I love wine. 2. I know a lot about WA State wine. 3. I know a lot about local wineries and the wine makers themselves. 4. Area wineries largely lack a Social Media existence; I would like to help them out. 5. I will be establishing myself in the world of Social Media in a way that brings me sheer and utter joy. OK, I have a lot to work to do now… keep checking in!

    Good luck! I’ve also jumped into the pool, but I’m on the East side in Spokane! I’m sure our paths will cross some day!

    If only you could combine the fertility aid and the wine…oh wait..hehehe
    I used to live up in Vancouver B.C. and I visit there quite often by way of Bellingham and Bumbershoot. Your blog will be quite useful the next time I am ordering wine for dinner or making a purchase at the store when I am up there.
