New York (and Portland, Niagara, and Austin), here I come!

Friday morning I’ll be on a plane, heading to New York. This is my first trip back since moving and I cannot wait. Cannot. Wait.  Friends, food…and The Seed!

I’m delighted to be returning to 82Mercer, the gorgeous, SoHo space where the positively plant-based festival took place last year.  If you recall, I was moderator, and presented, on a blogging panel


along with Gena and Yoli. This year I’m returning to present Blogging 2.0 – From Your Blog to Main Street: How to Expand your Vegan Activism.  I wrote a chapter on “veganism beyond the plate” in the forthcoming Vegan for Her, which includes a section on activism and I’ll share some ideas from that, but I have a special request.

Vegan bloggers:

  1. How have you taken your vegan activism beyond your blog?
  2. What do you want to know about going further with your activism? 

I will incorporate your questions into the presentation and will do a follow-up post here with suggestions and ideas for all of us.

I’m presenting at The Seed at 12:00 p.m. Sunday and hope to see you there!

A few days after returning from New York I’ll be back on a plane, this time to Portland for the second Vida Vegan Con, a vegan lifestyle blogger conference.


The week after VVC I’ll be, yep, back on a plane, on my way to the Niagara VegFest.[click to continue…]
