So, for the third year running, the vegan blogosphere is going to be blogging like mad for Vegan Month of Food. Isa Chandra Moskowitz came up with the idea back in 2007, and this year it’s going to be massive: At last count, over three-hundred blogs have signed on to participate this year. Isa explains the general concept:
The idea is to write as much as you can for the month of October about vegan food. The blog entries can be about anything food related – your love of tongs, your top secret tofu pressing techniques, the first time your mom cooked vegan for you, vegan options in Timbuktu – you get the idea. There is no strict guideline for how much you have to write, but we shoot for about 20 times a month, or every weekday.
If you’re interested in participating, head on over to Cake Maker to the Stars , where Kittee is going all insane Web 2.0 with links to the MoFo RSS feed, flickr group, twitter twibe, all kinds of nifty bells and whistles. Over on the Post Punk Kitchen, a discussion forum has been set aside to talk about themes, events, cooking challenges, all kinds of greatness to get the ideas flowing.
I’ll be doing round-ups of the participating blogs on Mondays, and I’ll keep you posted on what blogs to hit up for the other days of the week. So head on over to Kittee’s blog if you want to participate. Only a couple days until this shiznit gets underway! And feel free to steal the banner image for your own vegan blog, courtesy of Katie from Don’t Eat Off The Sidewalk.
For me, all of this means I need to get cracking on some cooking and bloggering. Truth is, most of what I cook is pretty damn boring. Hell, some nights it’s just a few handfuls of almonds or some PB&J. So this month, I’ll have to get my ass in gear. Counting down to Thursday, eek!
