Career Cross-Over

So I keep my fingers crossed that one day I’ll stumble across the perfect job combination of training, writing, technology and wine. In the meantime, I’m often surprised by how often there is a cross-over of knowledge between my "real" job in technical writing and training and my wine obsession. I chalk a lot of it up to the current iteration (and continuing evolution) of Web 2.0. Web 2.0 (or the live web, or whatever you want to call it) encourages community. What do wine folks love? Other wine folks with whom they can compare notes and learn. Informal learning environments. See? All my worlds are crossing over. Everything I can "soap box" on in the changing world of collaborative learning applies to the changing world of wine as well.

That said, more and more often, a post from this blog may also garner some mention on my professional blog. In this case, a post from my professional blog is getting some mention here. The GrapeThinking.com blog got me thinking on the rise of viral marketing with their excellent post on the subject. I pretty much summarized their post and added a few of my own thoughts. So feel free to poke your head over to my Write Technology blog for some more on viral marketing.
It’s intriguing though, this crossover between my worlds.

    I’ve always found it fun and interesting that so many of the wine bloggers I know work in tech and/or writing in their day jobs.
    Much like yourself, I used to work in what amounted to marketing/tech writing and started my blog as a diversion and to keep my “real” writing going and fresh.
    I’ve moved up the ladder a bit and play mostly editor strategizer these days, but still in the internet marketing field. Awesome to see how the day job converges with the blog and with the hobby…
