Florida: The Frugal Wine Snob

Carolyn writes from Florida about the world of bottles under $20 at her brand new site The Frugal Wine Snob. As we all know, frugal doesn't mean cheap, but rather implies making the most of your hard earned money. The sub-$20 field can be frustrating, because there's a lot of boring wine out there in that price range, but there are utter gems and delights if you know where to look. So check out her blog and save a few greenbacks when you hit the wine shop.

I typically don't link sites until they've got a few months' worth of posts up, but she's been practicing on Facebook for a while before going public with the blog. I think that's a great strategy for any starting blogger in any field. Write for a while and get a feel for your personal style, and then take the best of and use those as your first posts.
