It is wonderful to see great bloggers get the recognition that they deserve. Excel Wines of the UK has chosen Michelle Williams’s “Rockin Red Blog” as one of the 100 most influential wine blogs on the Internet. Michelle, as you recall, provided the fabulous wine suggestions for my “Winds of War” live-blog series this summer, and I know that many of my loyal readers also read her blog every day, so this is a victory for all of us who enjoy her wonderful posts on wine, food, music and culture. As I said not long ago, a blog is a community. Michelle is part of our community and we’re happy to see her in the limelight.
