Day 8: Reach out! Make a new vegan friend & tell us about it.
Whoa, you want me to make a friend in a single day?! That’s crazy talk. Despite my bloggerly loquaciousness, I’m not one to make fast friends. My friendships are more of a slow burn, if you will.
That said, in the eight days of MoFo so far, I’ve encountered a few new-to-me blogs (and bloggers!) that I’ve particularly been enjoying. Here are a few highlights:
- Lysette at Vegan Varg blew my mind with her peanut butter + roasted garlic sandwich. Now THAT is a weird food combo… but a tantalizing one!
- Over at No Thanks, I’m a Vegan, Elise took one for the Whovian fandom team and tried fish fingers + custard for the film/book food prompt. I will not, repeat not, be trying that combo!
- I recently had drunken noodles for the first time and loved the dish, so Amber’s recipe over at Vegan4One couldn’t have been better timed!
I’ve always loved the way Vegan MoFo encourages bloggers to reach out and find new reads, so I love that there’s a prompt devoted to those relationships. In my life — both on- and offline! — I’m lucky to have many dear friends who share my ethics and ideals, and I cherish their company. I can’t imagine how isolating it would be if I didn’t have these relationships to sustain me. If you’re a vegan without a strong support network, don’t be afraid to reach out! My contact info is here if you want to chat. <3

I’ll be your vegan friend! If you’re in a medium/big city meetup.com can be a great way to meet other vegans!
Yeah, Meetup is great!

Thanks for the roundup, I hadn’t seen these posts yet! I love that I keep discovering new blogs during VeganMoFo every year. :)
It’s my favorite part of MoFo, I think!
I’m glad my pb&g made your weird taste buds light up ;) Awesome you have solid networks to share and identify with but even more rad that you extend the gesture outward. Champ <3
Thanks for the kind words!
I totally agree – finding new friends and new blogs to read and instagrams to follow is the most wonderful part of MoFo. Sometimes it can feel a bit lonely to be a vegan, and all the hubbub and activity and interconnection of mofo just feels so edifying!!
Peanut butter and anything is amazing! But I will have to check out the pb & roasted garlic sandwich, sounds amazing!
That’s why I figure it can’t go wrong!
