Wine Blog Atlas - niche wine blogging Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
The idea came to the fore again yesterday as I read Ryan's latest post on Catavino. In a nutshell Ryan is advocating that bloggers concentrate on one single area. He mentions that there are over 300 'wine' blogs - each with worldwide coverage - but very few that specialise and offer in-depth coverage of a specific area.
Isn't blogging supposed to be about the LongTail? The idea that in the new Web 2.0 market place is where people can focus on small and smaller niches, allowing consumers to seek out only that which they are interested in with people with like interests and stories?"
A few sites with specific coverage come to mind - Lenndevours covering Long Island, The Cru starting to explore South Africa and Ryan's Catavino on Iberian wine for example. I am still wondering if there is much call for an English wine blog; the market is so small after all. A niche it certainly is though.
Ryan has set-up a site to be dedicated to listing blogs covering specific regions - Wine Blog Atlas - nothing there yet but one to watch to see how the wine blog world develops.
