There are great changes ahead for Vegas Wineaux!
During the course of the last few months, you may have noticed that we are posting more often; our stories, posts, studies, etc., are far more expansive, and we have gotten into photography because we’re working on presenting better images of our adventures. All of those things are due in no small part to the guest authors; those people whose travels and tastes have really helped me up my game and whose tastes and knowledge mirror my own.
But there’s a lot more to come. This won’t be completed for at least a month or more, but the planning phase is in “no turning back” territory.
Wine and Vegas
Vegas Wineaux will be expanding its view and scope in reporting stuff around Vegas. First, there’s the wine. That will never stop! We are all wine lovers, and as one of our own just became a sommelier and another is ready to test, that will naturally continue. Wine is my life!
I will also be talking more about Las Vegas. After all, I live here! Las Vegas is a great place to live and offers me a lifestyle that I can’t imagine enjoying anywhere else, and there’s a lot of things going on that many people never see. Everybody knows The Strip, and fewer people know Downtown Las Vegas, which is surprisingly close to Casa Wineaux. But there are little pockets throughout Las Vegas and its outskirts that people visiting never even hear about. I hope to showcase some of those places so that people who are visiting can have a more expansive time.
Reviews and Home
Every now and then I like to do reviews – not only about wine but also about other things that cross my path as well. Most of these things are based on my own personal encounters, and I want to make sure to share those experiences. Who knows? Maybe I can save you some money! And then, there’s Casa Wineaux. Two years (!!!) ago when I bought my home, I fell totally in love with it and that hasn’t changed. It’s kind of like a really good marriage – sometimes you just know when you’ve got the right one! Well, my HGTV projects are still very fresh in my mind, and I love sharing some of the things that I do here at home. Sometimes it’s entertaining, sometimes it’s cooking, sometimes it’s just sitting down and having a chat. I hope to do more of that!
As you may have figured out, travel is an important part of my life even though I don’t do it that often, and it’s always relatively local, which suits me just fine. Since I live in Las Vegas, sometimes my travel is right here in town! Seriously, however, since my friends/guest authors love to travel, I really want to highlight our various, disparate adventures (is the South African series great or what). Because I am planning to leave The Day Job™ in just a few months, I hope that I will have more travel opportunities to be able to share. And, as you have probably guessed, those travel opportunities are definitely going to be wine related! Those of us who are fortunate enough to live in travel destinations such as Vegas really do love to share. The desert southwest is filled with opportunities, scenery, special finds, etc. In fact, I often tell people that if you live in Las Vegas – or thereabouts – and you are bored, then you are doing something wrong!
I also plan to do more videos. I would like to be able to expand my YouTube channel, especially for reviews and for Vegas-related stuff. I am still playing with a new camera, new software, and lots of cussing even as I write this, but I am sure that I will get it sorted sooner or later. Hopefully sooner!
The look will be the same but different. I want to make it easier for people to find information, make it prettier (important), and most of all, make it far more informative. In other words, I want Vegas Wineaux dot com to rock!
I hope that you can stick around and enjoy the new direction that Vegas Wineaux is taking. Still great articles, more writers, lots of wine, (fabulous) Vegas, and hopefully, more wine country. In between those things, there’ll be home, reviews, and chatty stuff. Thanks for hanging around. Stay tuned!
