Vida Vegan Con & Homemade Bloggie Buttons!

The first ever vegan blogging conference (sold out!), Vida Vegan Con, is just around the corner and I am getting really excited! I'm so honored that I was invited to be a speaker, and I'm super looking forward to meeting everyone. There will be so many friends there whose blogs I have been reading for years, but who I've never had a chance to meet in person. I can't wait.

Lucky me, I get to be on two different panels. In the first, I'll be co-presenting with Sherri (of Vegan Nosh!) & Bianca (of Vegan Crunk!) on the "Build-A-Blog" panel - we'll be discussing all the ins & outs of hosting options, blog promotions, stat tracking and more. It should be very informative!

Also! Kittee (Cake Maker to the Stars) & Mo (Mo Betta Vegan!) & little ol' me are throwing a party with the first-ever all-vegan gameshow, Vegan Battle Royale. We have grand plans and awesome prizes, so it should be a seriously good time!

To celebrate, I wanted to have a little something to share with all the kind folks I meet, and everyone who comes to the classes I get to be a part of ... so I got out my trusty button maker and make about 150 buttons featuring my little family! What fun!

See you at the conference, and if you can't make it this time... rest assured, there are already plans for the next time around!

  7. I just read the description of the Battle Royal on the VVC website and it sounds so fun! Looking over the schedule, I just might be coming to both of your panels. All the easier to stalk you :)

    OMG those buttons are so cool! Vida Vegan Con sounds like so much fun. Hope you had fun and your panels went well!!

    Another cookbook recommendation for you: Blissful Bites. Tons of unique recipes, lots of gluten free and low fat options. And the author is supposed to be at Vida Vegan Con, so maybe you met her and saw the book already. If not, check it out - I think you will like it!

  12. Those buttons are genius!! I want to make them for my third-grade students. (I love to paint with watercolor...) Some of our class common sayings are "Smart people ask questions," and "Brave people take risks." Do you mind my asking how you made these? Where did you get the materials?
