Someone once told me setting up a blog was easy. Someone was wrong!
In the last few weeks of titanic struggle and frayed nerves while waiting online for a GoDaddy tech – only to have him read something from the internet I’d just found – I’ve discovered that it isn’t “point and shoot” technology. Or in the case of a blog, point and write.
Yes, there are free travel blogs available, but with stern warnings about using it for commercial purposes. And let’s face it, this is a commercial purpose. So even though I’m a “reformed” lawyer, old habits die hard. Needless to say, I rarely take the easy path!
But ending up with something sterile and lacking in bells, whistles and widgets isn’t all that bad. At least it’s a platform for me to share with my readers Piemontese stories related to me by its women over the next 10 days. It’s the first major step to “Under Discovered: Piemonte through the eyes of its women.” If all goes according to plan, you will be able to put it on your Christmas shopping (or wish) list.
The next 24 hours will be stressful traveling, but once I settle down at Agriturismo Il Bricco in Treiso, I will be back online writing and sharing pictures.
In the meantime, enjoy this fun picture of the wine dragon at Villa Tiboli near Canale in the Roero.

Congratulations on your new blog, Suzanne. I look forward to following your journey. It would make it easier to do so if your web site has the capability to create and cater to a mailing list of followers, wherein we can sign up with our e-mail addresses and thus automatically receive and e-mail of each new post, or a notice that there is a new post and alerting us to come back to the site to see it. If you can institute such a system, I will love to sign up for that.
Many thanks, Tom. I’m working on that. If you know of a good plugin for subscriptions, I would love to hear your advice as it’s always useful. The high raters on the search results from the admin platform all have the notation “not tested with your current version of WordPress.” I don’t want my readers to be Guinea pigs.
Happy to have you as part of the “wine family” of readers.
Are you the same Suzanne that had a bakery in Detroit
So sorry to not have answered sooner. No, I am not a baker, but I certainly love baked goods! ☺️
