Jared and Tracey Brandt over at A Donkey and Goat (yes, a winery) wrote to let me know that they started a "harvest blog," which Jared says they intend to continue updating all year.
All they need now is an RSS feed (which I've been told is coming), so that interested readers don't have to visit the site to see if anything is new (which is the power of RSS). As Jared himself notes, "I use RSS to track all the blogs I read and tend not to read those that don't support it."
I remember personally taking time to visit A Donkey and Goat's Web site when we started compiling the database that underpins The Winery Web Site Report - I was completely intrigued by the whimiscal and off-beat name, and I wasn't disappointed by the story behind the name (see "Who is the donkey?"):
Everyone wants to know how we came up with such an odd label. The truth is we were looking for something that could convey our partnership and philosophy while being fun and not too serious.
There is a natural quality to the writing voice on their site, and it continues in their blog. I notice that all the posts are from "adonkey" (and unless you read closely, it's not always obvious whether it's Tracey or Jared doing the blogging) - where's the poor goat? And who can resist a post that includes something like this?
"Tracey, I hope you get this message before you get to the vineyard because you need to know THERE IS A BEAR IN THE VINEYARD. MAKE A LOT OF NOISE. WHISTLE A TUNE OR SOMETHING."
Of course, I've added them to our as-comprehensive-as-we-can-make-it list of winery blogs.
