Veg Bloggy Awards \'08 Winner

Best veg*n blogs, that is… according to VegNews magazine, who has selected this blog as one of the “21 best blogs in the first annual VegNews VegBloggy Awards”! The winning blogs will be featured in their July/August issue, which will be on newsstands on July 1st (I have yet to see what they say about us — I’m a little nervous, hee).

Heaps of gratitude to VoC reader Sara, who nominated us for the award (as well as any other readers who did, of course). Thank you very much!

It’s very exciting to me that a blog discussing the intersections of race, gender, class, & other identity issues with veganism would be selected for such an award. This will hopefully give much wider exposure to this kind of analysis. I feel very lucky to have such great folks blogging here at VoC (thank you!), & want to give a special shout-out to Noemi & Nadia — when I first said I was itching for a place for vegans of color to talk online, they both said, “If you start a blog, we’ll write for it!” Without their encouragement I don’t know if I would’ve gone ahead, so… thanks! And thank you to our many supportive readers, as well (to those of you reading out there who don’t get it, thanks for providing continual reminders of why the work we do is necessary).

I can’t wait to see what other blogs are so honored; I’m sure we’re in very good company, & am very grateful that we’ve been recognized in this way. Yay for us!
