I just wanted to mention a few things before I ran away from my computer for the day.
Especially for Vegan MoFo, I’d like to announce two more features I’m doing every weekend! Saturdays will be “Saturday Sweets” For the month of September. Meaning, I’ll be making a big, sticky, sweet dessert every Saturday from now until October. And then on Sundays I will be making and posting a big, family-style meal. I’m creatively calling these posts “Sunday Dinner.” If my plan works out, I’ll get to have guests to every Sunday Dinner so Tom and I don’t have to eat all the food ourselves.
And finally, EXCITING NEWS!!! My Veganniversary is next Monday, September 9th! This will mark seven years of veganism for me. I’ve put Tom in charge of making plans for that day, so it’ll be a surprise for you and me both.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of delicious vegan food!
After a 31-month hiatus from blogging I signed up for Vegan MoFo. Which was clearly the not crazy-difficult decision.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept, it’s short for the Vegan Month of Food. A bunch of vegan bloggers, food bloggers, and other kinds of bloggers band together and commit to posting every day (or nearly every day) in September about vegan food. No non-vegan posts allowed! Not even posts including honey. Which, thankfully, is not a problem for me!
So remember how I said that the blog would be a Monday-Wednesday-Friday affair? Well, that idea will be suspended for the month of September while I attempt to post every day! I guess it’ll be like doing a YouTube VEDA or participating in NaNoWriMo.
I’m going to be honest. This will be a challenge for me. Being witty and interesting while trying to come up with delicious-looking photographs takes a lot of energy. But as I am currently otherwise unemployed, I can make classyvegan.com my full time job. At the very least, it’ll be better for me professionally and personally than sitting around watching the Price is Right all morning (though I do loves me some Drew Carey).
In an interesting twist, I will be in Seattle attending PAX Prime from August 30th to September 2nd. So the first two Vegan MoFo 2013 posts will be coming from my phone. You’ve got to love technology. I am pretty thrilled to try all the vegan places in Seattle, though. Especially Wayward Vegan Cafe. I took a peek at their menu and I want to try SO many things on it that I may have to visit there more than once during my 4-day trip.
Look for a preview of everything I have planned for a September full of Vegan delicacies on Friday, August 30th.
If you’re interested in other bloggers who are participating in Vegan MoFo, you can check out The Vegan MoFo website. I think they’ll post the full list of bloggers doing Vegan MoFo soon. If you want to sign up, too, there is still time! The deadline is tomorrow, August, 28th.
Just a quick post tonight because I’m so excited!
I’ve finally gone and done it. I’ve bought myself a dot com! In addition, I have officially changed the name of the blog to classyvegan.com. Now if I understand the way the WordPress and DNS servers work, the old links and bookmarks should still work and all the old content will still be around.
However… THERE WILL BE NEW THINGS!!!
New posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Look for new recipes and stories as well as reviews! I’ve got a couple product reviews and restaurant reviews already on the docket. I’ve also got some fresh vegan tips and shortcuts up my sleeve to share with the world.
Anyway, that should be all the big changes for the blog for now. Look for a super fun video tomorrow! (Technically later today, I guess.)
