Day 18 of Wine with Mallery isn’t incredibly funny or overly serious. Today Wine with Mallery is slightly sappy and something my blogger buddies might only be able to relate to. I have been a part of an amazing group of bloggers for 2+ years and it is finally time to talk about why I love working with Collective Bias®/Social Fabric®.
PS: I never claimed to be a public speaker and I said ‘unheard of’ a bajillion times.
Wine with Mallery cliff notes for those who can’t watch the video…
Everyone puts their pants on the same way in Collective Bias.
I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw my profile update saying I had been a part of my online family for 2 years! It had been 2 years since my blogging fairy tale began and the rest is history. I work from home and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Well… some days I would love a babysitter for a little peace and quiet, but that has nothing to do with my online family.
When you are new blogger, you filled with all sorts of emotions and thoughts. You are overwhelmed with the feeling of building your blogging empire overnight. (That’s totally not the way this works.) You are worried about paying your bills and making blogging work for your family. The best word to describe how I felt when I started blogging is lonely. I had no idea who to go to for advice and I sure as heck didn’t even know where to start my blogging journey. I was lost.
Somehow the stars aligned and I joined a group called Collective Bias. I can’t even tell you how I found them, I just did. Joining my online family has been the single, most valuable career decision I have ever made. Someone believed in me from the very beginning. Someone supported me and my questions from the very beginning. The confidence that Collective Bias has given me and the crazy online family I have gained are hands down the reasons I will never leave.
These like-minded people are my family, and somehow understand the things that go through my brain. (I often wonder what goes through their minds when I talk/write.) You already know what a wacky personality I have, and yet, I still feel at home. I would love to be a fly on the wall of their office because they are a hoot. I am sure there isn’t a shortage of laughs in their daily routine. Can we have a bring your blogger to work day? Haha!
I think that is enough emotions for one Wine with Mallery, right? I fail at expressing emotions via the written word so just watch the video. I also fail at public speaking so just take my word for it. I guess you just can win this one.
Step 1- You should watch the video (Up there, scroll back up.) if you want more of those warm and fuzzy feelings.
Step 2- Now that you have watched the video, scroll down and read the comments (hopefully there are some) on why other people love this company.
Step 3- Leave a comment on why you love our online family.
Step 4- Visit Amy at As The Bunny Hops and tell her how AH-mazing my bow is! PS: You have to watch the video to see it.
Trader Joe’s Vinas Chilenas 2012 Chardonnay
This is another winning wine from Chile. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. This 2012 Chardonnay has a very fruity nose, smooth palate, with a slight acidic bite to it. I would definitely drink this Chardonnay again! I like the slight astringent flavor of this pale yellow wine. Although, I can see where it might not be a good starter wine for someone who doesn’t know what they like yet.
