Due to recent asshattery & unchecked privilege, we’re going to all-moderated comments, at least for now.

In the meantime, some of you all might want to unpack that knapsack (& take a look at this too, as well as checking out the Privilege 101, Race Relations 101, & Privilege Checklists links on Shrub’s sidebar).


Shameless Plea for Publicity March 23, 2008

I saw this from It’s Easy Being Vegan. It’s from VegNews:

March VegNewsletter Question of the Month + Giveaway
Blogs: They’re freakin’ everywhere. No matter what you’re looking for—from serious news content to the opinions of more than a few lunatic minds—you can find a blog to fit your fancy. Naturally, there are about a bajillion vegan blogs of all stripes: food blogs with coma-inducing photography, abolitionist blogs with political content, and blogs dedicated to veg resources. Those categories don’t even begin to scratch the surface of all the other kinds of blogs that happen to be written by us veggie types. So this month, what we really want to know is: What are your top five favorite blogs?

Send us an email by March 31 and tell us all about which blogs you love and why. Is it their design? Their in-depth recipe details? The amazing products they feature? Whatever the reason, we want to hear it. You may just see your favorite blog honored in our VegBloggy Awards, coming soon to a July+August issue of VegNews near you!

To even out the technology-heavy question this month, we’ll be selecting one respondent to win a ’70’s Throwback Gift Bag. We’re sure you’ve all read the groundbreaking “History of Vegetarianism” article in the current issue, which covers the emergence of the ever-expanding modern veg movement (and if you haven’t, you may want to step away from the screen and give it a gander). Remember what the animal-product-free lifestyle was like before there was The Web, much less Web 2.0? In honor of times past, this month’s giveaway will feature our signature VN tote bag filled with goodies that are sure to take you right back to the golden age of disco.

If anyone’s so inclined, please feel free to e-mail VegNews with your affection for this blog! I am guessing a lot of the blogs mentioned will be food photography/recipe blogs, which are great, but I personally would love to see more blogs that look at veg*nism in wider cultural & political contexts: hey, like this blog!

Anyway, it’d be sweet to get some more readers — & some more bloggers! — so if you enjoy this blog, please let them know! Thanks.


Excellent Blogs February 27, 2008

This blog has been awarded an Excellent Blog Award by Elaine Vigneault (who sometimes I feel is a one-woman cheering squad for this blog, so thank you)!

excellent blog award

The award comes with the following stipulation:

By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, I have to award it to 10 more people whose blogs I find Excellent Award worthy. I can give it to as many people as I want, but I’ll award at least 10. Thank you out there for having such great blogs and being such great friends! You deserve this! If chosen, you agree to the same information above. If chosen, also feel free to award people who have already been awarded.

This is as bad as choosing people to pass on a survey meme to! Or worse, really. I’m going to cop out & say that all the blogs over there on the side, in our blogroll? They’re all Excellent Blogs, too. They’re all worth reading.

(I get a little frustrated sometimes with sites that have blogrolls a mile long, because I feel like they’re too hard to wade through… that’s why this one is thus far fairly short. So yeah, they really are all Excellent Blogs!)

First of all, welcome to the fabulous Noemi, whose first post is directly below this one. Thanks for joining this blog!

Secondly, tomorrow night I’m going away for the week, & will probably not have a ton of Internet access, which means that things like comment approval etc. might take a little bit more time. But hopefully my trip will fill me with inspiration for lots of things to post about!
