It will great anticipation that I’m pleased to report that author Rex Pickett will be our second keynote speaker at the Wine Bloggers Conference in Portland.
Having just attended the Pinot Noir Summit this weekend, where Rex and fellow blogger Alana Gentry of Girl with a Glass hosted an intimate chat, Pickett is excited about talking to the blogger contingent about social media, blogging, and writing.
I find Rex to be engaging, self deprecating, knowledgeable, and hilarious, and am thrilled that he’s getting on a plane for little ole bloggers!
He has written several books and screenplays, and of course, notably, Sideways. Recently, the follow up to Sideways – Vertical romps through Oregon wine country, making him a natural speaker.
Special boxed sets will be available for purchase at the conference as well, featuring Sideways and its newly released sequel, Vertical.
Please give Rex a shout out on twitter, as he’s interested in talking to us and learning more about twitter. Give him some love! Having already hosted one #winechat, he will follow you back, and also engage you if you have any writing questions!
I can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us!
Now, what better reason to support a blogger today? Don’t forget, through our partnership with Enobytes, this can be a tax deductable expense.
