Local food blogger Sarah Gim's audition video (vote page)

Who wouldn't want to live in a Sonoma wine country house for six months getting paid $10,000 a month to eat, drink, schmooze, party and then blog all about it? In a stroke of viral marketing genius, Murphy-Goode Winery is holding a contest to win that job and the voting ends this Friday.

Anyone could enter (and people still are) and that of course means local food bloggers are going for it, too, like Sarah Gim of The Delicious Life and Tastespotting fame (see above video, you can vote for her here). We're sure there are more Angelenos like Deidre Hopp (her video is below) trying out, so let us know in the comments section!
