I just got word that FatFree Vegan Kitchen has won the Food Blog Award for Best Theme. I’m stunned, I’m excited, but above all I am so grateful to all of you who voted for this blog. It’s a joy to be recognized for something I love doing, but I wouldn’t be doing it at all if not for you readers. Thank you, thank you, thank you! In the adapted words of Christine McVie, you make blogging fun!
And more big news: The vegan blog Bittersweet won in the Best Writing category–very well-deserved! If you haven’t been reading Hannah’s blog, you need to start right now. And buy her book, too! She’s an incredibly talented writer, photographer, and cook, and she deserves all the recognition she gets and more.
Congratulations to all the other finalists. There is such a wealth of talent out there, and it’s an honor for me to be included. Thank you to the Well Fed Network, for taking on the huge job of hosting the awards.
Finally, I heard via Chris that FatFree Vegan was mentioned along with his and Darlene’s blog Eat Air in the latest edition of Vegetarian Times. Wow. I mean, wow. Way back when, before internet, the only other vegetarians I knew were the ones I “met” through Vegetarian Times; it was a source of comfort to me when I felt like the only vegetarian on Earth. To be mentioned there along with Eat Air, one of the groundbreaking vegan blogs, is a huge thrill.
Well, no one’s going to need to get me anything for Christmas this year because I’ve gotten everything I could ever want… except maybe a copy of Vegetarian Times… and a hat big enough to fit my big head!
