Vegan Blog Hits 100 Articles – Got Feedback?

As this 100th posting comes to life, I reflect on having produced this vegan blog for over a year now. A writer and veggie of many years, I created this website out of passion and with much patience from a consultant, Stephanie Redcross of Vegan Mainstream.

I came into the world with a compassion for animals that at age four prodded me into becoming a vegetarian, a life calling that begs to be shared with others. I feel a responsibility to continue inspiring people toward the vegetarian and vegan lifestyle and to keep the already converted motivated. At an event the other day someone addressed me as “Turn the Paige,” so hopefully my efforts and those of numerous other herbivorous ambassadors are turning people in a healthier direction.

Through blogging I have attended many more veggie events and meetups than usual, and have come home excitedly like a kid on Christmas to packages filled with Earth Cafe raw cheesecakes or goji berries that companies have mailed me to review. I’ve met many amazing people in Southern California and stretching into some other areas of the world. Connecting with others who share an interest in vegetarian cuisine is easy — we are like a tribe of like-minded folks — whether an employee at a Hare Krishna restaurant in Uganda or a vegan baker in San Diego.

As I move forward with these writing endeavors, I am seeking your feedback. Are there articles you would love to see? Veggie websites and blogs are bountiful – what other websites should I link to in the “Resources” section? No promises that I will add a certain topic or link, but I am open to suggestions.

Thanks for your input, and may the vegetable and fruit gods be with you.

    Wow! 100 blog posts! Very impressive! Thanks so much, Paige, for keeping us up on all the veg happenings in San Diego and elsewhere! You really do us a great service, so keep up the good work! I look forward to more informative, concise articles!

    Thank you Paige for reminding each of us to make conscious choices in the area of foods.
    I would like to see more articles about cruelty to animals, and why it is important that people
    are reminded to inquire about where and how the source of their foods are grown.

    I grew up on the South Side of Chicago between animal slaughter houses, and we were surrounded by the three city dumps. None the less, three of the six children born to my parents were diagnosed with disease in their early years. Four currently are struggling with on going disease. I believe the old adage, we are what we eat.

    Thanks for your determination, dedication, and
    authentic expression in making conscious food
    choices,

    is Certified Organic, while enjoying my ghee, almonds and honey daily).

    I love the visual with this blog. The picture summarizes what we are all working for. Every voice counts.

    When people say why they stopped eating animals, often it is just some random event or encounter after many other events and encounters first planted the seed. The saying is that people have to hear something 7 times before they listen and it makes sense. With the information barrage we live with now, that number is likely far higher. So just keep putting the message out there and it will have an impact.

    Product reviews are fun and so is coverage of local events, restaurants, etc. Maybe do a little calendar to let people know more in advance what is coming up since you are so on top of that.

    Go Paige! 100! You’ve done such amazing work, covering events, conscious restaurants and more. And a suggestion…hmmm…how about more health specifics? Like exploring controversial products, such as kombucha for example? Or investigating particular diets like raw, macro, etc…Just thinking of possible ways to branch out…you are AMAZING! Love ya…..

    Congrats on 100, Paige! :) I don’t know if I’d change anything about your blog, I’m very impressed with the way you let your readers in on the vegan experience, and like your title says, you DO offer inspiration and a tremendous amount of guidance. You are a great writer–keep it up, lady!
