Vegans of Color

Because we don’t have the luxury of being single-issue

VegNews Top Ten Veg-Related Blogs July 22, 2010

Apparently we’re being honored again by VegNews as a top veg blog? According to What The Hell Does a Vegan Eat Anyway?, at least.

This is the first I’ve heard of it, but hey, that’s awesome. Yay for us, & thanks!

ETA: And congrats to the other blogs listed, of course! Rather uncouth of me not to do that from the start — can I blame my bemusement at only randomly finding out about our inclusion on the list? Eeeek.

This is way overdue, but VOC blogger Breeze Harper recently gave birth to Sun, a baby boy. Congratulations, Breeze!! I’m sure you’re a little busy right now (heh), but if & when you get the chance, I know folks would like to read your thoughts about VOC mamahood.

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!


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!)
