    Hi Adrienne, My name is Ali Shull, I am a social media strategist who contracts managing digital marketing accounts for a number of businesses in the Napa Valley. My client, Napa General Store, has pushed out a few of your blog posts on our media platforms. We love your take on things! We have a tremendous new wine tasting experience, called ‘The Blindfold Wine Tasting Game” We would love to host you and a friend, to come by the General Store and enjoy this tasting. Hoping to get our wine education program out to those traveling to the napa valley looking for a more approachable wine tasting experience, and one that is especially a lot of fun and reasonably priced!
    Drop me a note if you might be interested in coming by to enjoy this fun wine experience. It would be out pleasure to meet you and talk more about what we do here at Napa General Store!

    Thanks!

    Loving your blog but sorry to report it will not allow me to subscribe. Thanks!

      Hi Tracy – I will look into it. Sometimes it looks like you didn’t subscribe but you did. It’s a little strange!
      Thanks for letting me know!
      Best, Adrienne

    love the blog but the subscribe widget does not seem to work. I see that others have had the same problem. please add me to your subscription list.

      Hi Rena, Let me check my MailChimp and see if you’re in there. The subscription widget sometimes does this weird thing that makes it look like it didn’t accept it by turning red – but it actually does. I will add you manually if I don’t see your email. Thank you for letting me know and for stopping by! Adrienne

    What happened to your favorite blogs on the top?

    • Adrienne Shubin

      Hi Nancy, I am doing some remodeling of the blog and had a tech consultant install a blog roll on the sidebar. It worked but it also slowed my site to a snail’s pace so I removed it. Unfortunately, I deleted my Favorite Blogs page in the process. I hope to have a blog list back soon – as soon as I can figure out a better way of featuring them. I would love to have a list that updated regularly with the latest posts but so far, I can’t find a plug in that will support that on my site. The joys of technology!

    Hi Adrienne,

    I really love this blog thanks for keeping it up – being a blogger myself I know just how much hard work is involved.

    I noticed that recently you have taken down your list of favourite blogs and am really missing it – would it be possible for you to put it up again?

      Hi Yvonne, I actually blogged about this very thing – the blog roll – about a week or two ago. I am trying to find a plug-in for WordPress that will update my blog roll to keep things fresh. My web consultant is looking for one currently. Hopefully it will be back – and better – soon!

    Hi I have tried to subscribe on 2 different days, but the website won’r let me. My email address turns red like it’s a mistake, but it isn’t. If you could add me in, I’d love to receive your blog. It’s terrific!

      Hi Charlotte, so sorry to hear you’re having issues with the subscription. I will ask my web person to look into that. I have added you to my blog subscription list and you should be getting an email when my next post goes live. Let me know if you don’t (I should have a new one up tomorrow).
      Thank you for letting me know!
