near and far…

13 Oct

I’m sorry if that horrid Celine Dion song gets stuck in your head, that wasn’t my intent at all.

What I am here to talk about are two exciting things to put on your calendar, one right around the bend and another to start saving your pennies for: Vegan MoFo and the Vida Vegan Blogger Conference!

Vegan MoFo, in case for some reason you have missed the foodie pr0n fun the past few years, is the Vegan Month of Food, when bloggers commit to blogging every day for a whole month. It’s a great way to sharpen your writing chops and connect with your fellow bloggers! The past two years were in October, but this year it is in Novemeber. Click here to sign up if you want to participate and be included in the RSS feed!

The Vida Vegan Blogger Conference is likely to be new to many of you, because next year will be the first year of it! Come out to vegan mecca to attend presentations, panel discussions and workshops held by some of the vegan bloggers you’ve come to love and who have come to love you (like yours truly!) Visit vendor booths, enjoy the company of your fellow vegans and eat your way through Portland until you are so bloated with vegan goodness you can hardly stand it.

The conference will be centrally located in downtown Portland on a local college campus, with tons of easy access to mass transit and delicious food- and registration opens this weekend! Check out the confirmed speakers so far!

What do you think? Will you be participating in Vegan MoFo? Leave a comment, I don’t want to miss your posts! What do you think about a vegan blogger conference?

      Thanks to both of you! VVC’s going to be so great. I’m hoping everything goes so smoothly I’ll be able to pop my head in for some of the classes and panels.

    This just makes the nerd in me very happy. I’m always trying to go to a conference just as tickets sell out. So this just makes me very excited!

      I can’t wait to meet you in person, Mo!

    I would absolutely love to go, but I’m Canada where no such things exist, boo.
