The 2013 Wine Blog Awards just got a little more Radder… or… I don’t know where to begin, but I’ll try.

Wow!

I don’t know where to begin, but I’ll try.

This is my phone…

My Nokia

I mean…

It was my phone.

When my parents moved to a different state while I was in college, they got it for me.

I didn’t really think I needed a cell phone.  Honestly, I used to make fun of people who had cell phones.

But…

When your folks are footing the bill, it’s tough to say no.

This Nokia became my primary form of communication from 2001 to 2002.

Then, my parents started to get upset at the roaming charges (whatever those are) that were starting to rack up on their phone bill, so they discontinued service to my phone.

Like I said, I didn’t really think I needed a cell phone, so I never bothered to set up a service plan of my own.

I did, however, hold onto the phone.  After all, I’ve got a whole lot of people’s phone numbers in it.

Truth be told, I still look up numbers on my Nokia ever once in a while.

Anyways…

In October of 2002, I started dating a beautiful young lady named Kara.

She would eventually become my bride…

Here’s proof!

Well…

After dealing with my not having a cell phone for 10 years, she bought me one for my birthday in 2012…

Here it is!

Now…

Even though I never really thought I needed one, I figured I could use the phone for photo and video content on the wine blog that I had just started the year before.

At this point,  can say that my phone is the most important piece of blogging equipment I own.

Well…

This morning, I got the news…

Stay Rad Wine Blog is now a finalist in the 2013 Wine Blog Awards for Best Original Photography or Video…

Wow!

Needless to say, at this point, I’m stoked to the hella.

I’m especially stoked to be in the running along side some amazing blogs in the same category.

Please take some time today to dive into The Journey of Jordan, What’s in the Bottle, Chasing the Vine, and my personal favorite, 4488: A Ridge Blog.  You’ll be glad you did.  They have some killer content!

I’d love to have your vote here!

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to spend it with me… Me and my phone, that is.

Stay Rad,

Jeff

      Thank you, Jeff.
      Several of my posts over the last couple of years have been inspired by your blog in particular.

        Same here man, it has been fun feeding off each other, and I am sure we will continue to do so. Hopefully our next video together doesn’t get “lost” by the host company. LOL
