To the Blog!
Describe the name of your blog
The name of the blog is Lost in the Beer aisle for a good reason. When I started blogging about beer I knew virtually nothing about it other than I liked it. I wanted a blog name that indicated that I was confused and lost in what I was doing, but not afraid to admit I was clueless.
How long have you been blogging?
I started the blog in the spring of 2009…quickly approaching my 2 year anniversary!
Why did you choose to blog?
When I started dabbling in beer I found some of the “scene” intimidating. Lots of beer snobs out there who look down on non craft beer drinkers. When I realized I wanted to start writing about beer, I wanted to write about it in a way that anyone and everyone could relate to. So crazy beer lingo, no judging attitudes, and no “right” and “wrong” when it comes to beer.
What is the coolest thing that has happened since you have been blogging?
Hands down, the best thing that has happened was when my readers voted me to go to CANFEST out in Reno this past fall. Truly humbling experience.
The Obvious Questions
Opt in or Opt out of the TSA full body scan? and why?
HA! Awesome question. I’m all for it. I’d like to see the giggles from the screeners as they see what I’m packing (or more aptly, what I’m not packing).
If you could be on any reality TV show, what would it be and why?
Pretending for a moment that: #1 I had the guts, and #2 I had the youth and the physique..The Ultimate Fighter. Yup. I’m a huge mixed martial arts fan. TUF is one of the few reality shows that I’ll watch. Can’t wait for this genre to die.
What would the world be like without beer?
My first instinct, along with everyone else’s, is to say OMFG LIFE WOULD BE TERRIFFICALLY AWFUL! But…People like us would wind up finding a different vice to preoccupy out minds. So, although the landscape would be different, things wouldn’t be all that out of the ordinary.
