Veggie Goes Vegan

I am a co-founder of BlogHer and manage its events, marketing and corporate operations. After 13 years of marketing in Silicon Valley, I left high tech product management in 2003 to go online and join the social media world. I was one of the earliest professional and business bloggers and currently write or contribute to eight blogs. I blogs at various times about marketing, health issues, green and eco-conscious living, being a vegan, and reality TV talent shows like American Idol and Project Runway! I have a monthly column for the Silicon Valley Metro called Silicon Veggie.

I've actually been cooking, just not posting

Thanks to the VegCookbookClub, I've actually cooked regularly. I don't claim to do anything facy and recipe-based more than a few times a month, but I am keeping up. The problem is that then I snap the shots of the food, post them to Instagram, and never quite make it over here to blog it ....more
