A Love of Wine and Blog
So Murphy-Goode Winery in Sonoma (murphygoodewinery.com) is searching for a social media guru. This person with 'A Really Goode Job' will be paid $10,000 a month to blog, tweet, video journal and more about life in Sonoma. As they work, the winning candidate will live in a guest house on the property for the six month duration of the job. The Murphy-Goode team selects their Top 50 on June 26th. The top 10 will be flown to Sonoma for three days. The winner starts work on August 15th. Sounds great, huh? Well, more than a thousand applicants think so too. They've sent in a 60-second video that the public votes on as part of the application process-some are good and others...not so good. But for the chance to talk about wine and get paid handsomely for it, I guess they figured there was nothing to lose. I saw it that way too-my video is ranked #57 right now. I figured, what did I have to lose?
