Dilemma

I have my 20th college reunion in a couple of hours, and I'm trying to figure out what to call myself. "Unemployed blogger" has accuracy as its virtue, but it could use some punching up. I think I'll go with "specialty media content provider working to maximize his monetization potential."

You can tell people, "I'm a loser who has no job, but I drink beer and write about it." They'll probably say, "Jeff! You haven't changed a bit!" Then, somebody will hand you a PABST and you'll be typically polite and drink it. ;-}

Actually, you're probably right. Though we cottoned more to Hamm's back in the day. (I would expect better selection tonight.)

How about "Independent Libation Evaluator?"

"Respected beer blogger" has credence in Portland, but you might want to change it to "respected beer writer" elsewhere. You have, after all, been published in print enough times to call yourself a journalist.

Turns out no one asked about what I was doing. I guess we're at that age where it doesn't matter so much. Hopworks was on tap--a far finer tipple than back in the late 80s when I was there the first time.
