So, today was a bit special! I clicked a tweet link to check out who was shortlisted for the Vegan Blog category in the Health Blog Awards. I wanted to cast my vote, and having received my rejection email a while back was content to be a happy viewer, rather than participant in the awards.
Well, knock me down with a feather because my little blog was listed there! I’m not ashamed to say I literally ran over to some people in the office and proceeded to engage in a very embarrassing “happy dance” that continued for about three verses. Turns out there was some confusion in the emails and some folks got the wrong email.
I still can’t believe that I made the shortlist. Or that other people visit this blog, or that other people might like this blog! I write on here because I use this as an outlet for my love of food, and writing about food. And talking about food. And eating food! That other people visit it still astounds me. I mean, my kitchen rambles?
So, thank you!
I’m so grateful and thankful for each and every one of you.
When this blog started, I wasn’t a vegan, and I feel like as I have transitioned to my new plant based lifestyle, so has the blog – and I’ve ended up bringing all of you along for the ride. As I discover great, healthy recipes for old meaty favourites, I’ve shared them here. I’ve written about how I gave up cheese, and my beloved dippy eggs, in case it might help anybody else too. And as I continue my baking adventures as a Vegan, I’m finding that all the baked goodies in the world can still be created, without the eggs and butter and often without anything too complicated (or expensive) as a substitute.
What you, each, think of my blog and it’s content is so important to me, I literally get up and have a little dance when I get a comment, or a tweet, or a Facebook like – anything at all! So, thank you for being here. Thank you for trying out the recipes. Thank you for your feedback on my lifestyle posts.
