Where to find me–and whyJune 10th, 2009
Obviously you know about my blogging, but there are other ways you can communicate with me.
I’m on Twitter (@JohnHansell). Just like this blog, I use Twitter exclusively for business–and only for sending out information. I use it when I have something very brief to say that doesn’t require a formal blog posting. I often use it to inform people about breaking news, new whisky releases, and informal “I like this whisky or don’t like this whisky” comments. Many times I will give my general opinion of a whisky via a “tweet” sooner than I do here on this blog, because it’s faster and easier to do.
For example, yesterday I tweeted that I really like the new Dewar’s 18 year old blended scotch. I also tweeted that I prefer the “Fine Grain Oak” expression over the “Coarse Grain Oak” expression of the new Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection whiskeys. Sure, I’ll be putting up a formal blog review of all these whiskies very soon here on WDJK, but my opinions of them are already on Twitter.
I arranged my blog so that you can see my tweets on the right-hand column of my blog page. However, you can also sign up for Twitter and “follow” my postings, similar to the way you might be following my blog postings.
I am also on Facebook. I know that a lot of people use Facebook for business, but I don’t. Not under my direct name. If you want to know what I’m doing outside of my whisky life or engage in more casual conversation, just sign up to be my “friend” on Facebook. When you do this, just be sure to comment that you are reading my blog, so I know how you’re connected with me. Otherwise, there’s a good chance that I won’t “friend” you. (I get a lot of friend requests every day and I have no clue who they are.)
And, of course, you can always email me if you have a question that you can’t fit in the conversation here (John@maltadvocate.com). I try to respond to every legitimate email that I get.
