Mike, I may not be a winery blogger, per se, but I appreciate your being quick out of the conference with your thoughts on the wine blogger session's activities. I'll vouch for the fact that following each of your 7 points is very much worthwhile, and I'll add that social networking is too.

In fact, a great one-stop shop for both social networking and receiving feeds is the Flock social web browser, which is produced by the folks who brought us Firefox, and is worth downloading from Flock.com.

I'll confess I haven't played with Flock. Thanks for the tip. Of course, wineries should always make sure their site works correctly with vanilla IE and Firefox.

I am not a winery blogger either, but I must say that your tips sum it all up, for any kind of business-and-blog sites. However, a $9/mo "Plus" account on TypePad is sufficient for most needs. The only thing a $15/mo "Pro" account brings over the lesser account is 1) advanced templates for which you need to be skilled in coding to take advantage of, and 2) the possibility to add an unlimited number of blogs in one account. Personally I would go for WordPress for a starter blog.

I'm covering all but point number 2. I agree with it, but I will have to investigate how I can get it done. My blog is on a typepad server. My website (currently just a one page welcoming note and mailing list sign-up form), is on a Netfirms host. There must be a way to have the address.com/blog point to the typepad address...

Mike Duffy

Marco:
Regarding redirecting blog.domain.com to your blog: Typepad calls this "domain mapping" and it requires the Plus version of their service or above. Wordpress offers it for $10/year.

Redirecting www.domain.com/blog can be done in a number of ways, some prettier than others. If your Webmaster doesn't know how to do this, let me know.

Mike Duffy

Ian:
Since I recommend domain mapping, the minimal Typepad service level is "Plus", which I use myself (blog.winerywebsitereport.com) and runs me $80 a year (you get 2 free months when you sign up for a year of Typepad service).
