October 1st begins Vegan Mofo, the vegan food blogging event of the year. This fantastic awareness raising event was started by the Post Punk Kitchen as an homage to NaNoWriMo. PPK was created by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, in 2005, and quickly escalated into a place where vegans could write and talk about vegan cuisine in a safe and happy place. Isa has also written several awesome cookbooks. You should check them out.

What Vegan Food of the Month does is bring vegan cuisine into focus, not just in the food blogging world, but in the blogging world itself.

Here’s what is involved. For thirty days, vegan food bloggers write about food related topics. Whether it is the dish of the day, or your favorite restaurant, or favorite tools, the point is to write. Just like NaNoWriMo, where a person writes a novel in thirty days, we bloggers write about food and food things.

Sure, I’m panicked a little. I wasn’t a dedicated writer last month, and I have a crazy work schedule. But I’m serious about helping other people explore options in dining besides the meat and potatoes they think they need.

So raise a glass to the month of October, and here’s to good writing on Vegan Mofo!
