I’m Having a Party and You’re Invited: “The Session” for April 2013

NOTE: You can read a round-up of entries for the April 2013 Session here.

The name of this blog is in jest.

As I point out in the About page, my goal is not to be drunk in the process of curating content, oddly enough, for This Is Why I’m Drunk. It was just a little fun.

Beer is more than the alcohol that goes into it – it’s the passion, history and community. Beer is also just one of many interests I have in my life, whether it’s exercise, continuing my education or keeping tabs on how social media impacts society. Beer doesn’t define me, even if it may be something I can ramble on about for hours and hours. These are all things I love spending my time on, but what about you?

On Friday, April 5, I’ll be hosting the latest version of “The Session,” a.k.a. Beer Blogging Friday. It’s an opportunity once a month for beer bloggers from around the world to get together and write from their own unique perspective on a single topic. Each month, a different beer blogger hosts the Session, chooses a topic and creates a round-up listing all of the participants, along with a short pithy critique of each entry.

April’s topic is “Finding Beer Balance.” It’s a discussion I hope will offer a variety of responses as people consider their interests outside of finding the perfect pint.

Is beer your vice? Is beer your reward? Does beer really have to be either? Do you find lifestyle balance through work, hobbies, family or maybe even “Dry Days” like David Bascombe? There are a variety of ways to find balance.

These questions are simply a jumping-off point. No matter what your answer, I’d love for you to join us in April. Here’s how to participate:

  1. Think of a response to post on your blog. Or just leave a response in the comment section – no blog (or blogging experience) necessary.
  2. Post your response on “Finding Beer Balance” on April 5.
  3. Come back to this post and leave a comment with a link to your response.

It’s that easy. But most important, don’t forget to check out the great work of other participants. I’ll have a round-up of all the responses on Sunday, April 7 (update: to stick to my normal weekday publishing schedule, a round-up will be posted on Monday, April 8)

  17. Just found your site through DraftMag’s post. I’m very intrigued and can’t believe I didn’t find out about this sooner. I’ll have to follow and work and work on a contribution for next month. Cheers!
