Today marks the day one year ago that I started to blog on a regular basis thanks to Vegan Mofo (Vegan Month of Food). This blog was called by a different name at the time and a rarely posted anything before October 2009. So I'm calling this my 1 year blogiversary or blog rebirth you could call it.
Happy Blogiversary to Me!
It became apparent during October last year that I loved to blog and I had something important to share with the world. I don't think I had many readers back then, but I was happy to jump into the blogging community with open arms. That's also when I started reading more blogs, started a Google Reader for them, joined Twitter, and started to reach out to more people. It's been a fun ride and I never imagined I could touch so many people in just one year. I look forward to many more years of sharing, eating, playing, laughing, and cooking with you!
Looking back at those Vegan Mofo posts this past weekend I realized a few recipes were missing so I updated my Recipes page. It also showed me that I need to be posting more recipes for you guys! This blog isn't just about recipes. I never set out to be another vegan recipe blog, but I know you love them so I will make more of an effort to post weekly recipes. Take a looksy at the current Recipes page because some fall favorites will be had! If you want to check out those old Vegan Mofo posts full of wisdom just use the Category drop-down menu to the right and click "Vegan Mofo".
So for my Blogiversary I want to give something back to all my wonderful and thoughtful readers! But you have to do something for me, heehee. Email me a photo of you and your favorite fall vegetable, doing whatever you want, just make sure I can see your face and the vegetable(s). I've asked one of my favorite people, Stephanie over at Vegan Mainstream, and a special secret person to help be the judge. The most creative and top pick from us will win a 30 minute Skype consultation with The Blissful Chef to discuss anything you want. The 2nd price winner will win my upcoming Fall/Winter Cooking With The Seasons ebook, which will be available in 2 weeks time.
So have a blast taking photos with your favorite Fall vegetables and email them over to email@example.com. You have 10 days to get your photos in and we'll be choosing the winner on Monday October 11th. Good luck!
