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.
- How have you taken your vegan activism beyond your blog?
- 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.
Ginny and I will connect in Chicago and travel together to begin spreading the good Vegan for Her word. Ginny will present Happy, Healthy Vegan for Life: Ten Tips to Guarantee Success and I will follow her with my Healthy Food Preparation for the Busy Non-Cook: Tips, Trips and Techniques to Eat a Balanced, Compassionate Diet cooking demonstration and presentation.
The next weekend I’ll be in Austin for BlogHer Food 2013…
…in Austin! I am so excited to finally visit that special city in Texas.
Then, mid-June, I’ll actually be home for two weekends in a row but I certainly won’t be resting on my laurels. I’m teaming up with fellow Meetup organizers Lisa and Heather to offer a FREE 90-minute class Quick & Easy Ways to Make Plant-Based Meals for Kids (June 15). The following weekend I’m teaching a Summer Soups and Salads Cooking Demo Class (June 22), which will include a full lunch with wine!
That will wrap up June. July is going to be busy, too, but that’s connected to the book launch and worthy of its very own post – so more on that later!
I hope to see you in NYC, Portland, St. Catharines (Ontario), Austin…or Colorado Springs!
