Guess what this blog is missing?
You! That’s what.
This blog is a great vehicle for me to pass on whisky information to you as soon as I get it, and it’s also a way for me to let you know what whiskies I think are worth seeing out and which ones you should avoid.
However, as B.J. Reed pointed out in his comment on this blog’s first anniversary, it has been mostly a one-way street, with me passing information to you. I’m not getting enough feedback and dialogue from you.
I’ll take the blame for this, because I haven’t been posting topics that encourage discussion. The primary reason for this has been time constraints. This past year, it was difficult enough for me to set up this blog and post industry information and product reviews, while getting all the other stuff done that I have to do.
However, now that I’ve settled in a bit, I’m willing to post additional topics that encourage input from you. It’s pretty clear that all of you are intelligent, passionate whisky enthusiasts from all aspects of the whisky world (consumers, retailers, wholesalers, distillers and press). I think we can have some great discussions.
So, beginning next week, I’ll begin posting up topics occasionally encouraging diologe, along with the postings I am already doing. When I do, please join in.
