A bit of meta-posting, but something that I felt I should share.
When I started this blog back in 2009 it was to give me the excuse (of the blog tagline) to get out there and try lots of different types of booze with no more intent than learning more about something that I’ve long been a fan of. However, through the lovely people I’ve met and things I’ve learned it’s taken over more and more of my life to the point that I started to consider that the drinks industry might be somewhere that I could make a living. So, it’s with a rather unexpected joy that I can announce that I’m leaving the world of financial software behind me and embarking on a rather different new adventure.
From early-May I will be working for The Whisky Exchange helping to manage content on their website.
Not a lot will change here, with this being my own website and not affiliated with my day job, and I’ll still be writing my normal wordy rubbish – my new masters haven’t quite sewn up the entire booze market (yet) and my quest to learn all things about the world of drinks is far from over.
So to all of those who have helped me along the way, not least all you lovely readers who have encouraged me to keep going – many thanks, I owe you a beverage or three. BBBlog will remain independent and still one of the best excuses to drink that I’ve ever come up with.
Slainte Mhath, Prost, Egészségedre!
