It's a blog about drinks and drinking, but they want to sound they like have a Real Job™ so you get that.

Since when is blogging a Real Job™? It's that thing youngsters do (despite, you know, the overwhelming evidence to the contrary). Why would they want to mix in with that myth?

That's the point. Despite blogging being something you can make a living doing, it's still associated with youngsters and startups and other words that scare traditional investors. On the other hand "media companies" are strong bastions of journalism where money is made and people have careers (or so the authors of the blog figure investors will think)

That or they don't have or want investors, they just have a massive inferiority complex and/or want to impress upon their parents and society at large that what they're doing is a career and they should be treated like adults for doing it.
