Meilay- Mofo is a time for celebrating vegan food it doesn't have to be perfect, and more importantly you don't have to be perfect. There are always a ton of people blogging for the first time. Taking great pictures takes a long time to learn, but you will never learn unless you try!

Really!? I don't understand why that would be either.


Well, there's spinach. And close to christmas there will be kale. Otherwise... nothing. Next year I will fill my balcony with pots for growing it myself!

I'm not sure if this is the place for this question but I'll try it anyway: I'm thinking of signing up to do Vegan Mofo but I'm pretty...I guess nervous is the right word? I don't blog regularly and I've never blogged about food but I cook and bake a lot and would love to be a part of something so huge. I guess my main concerns are: 1. What are the standards for Vegan Mofo? Meaning I know there's a certain number of times you're supposed to post but outside of that is there anything else? 2. What if I'm not good with pictures because all I have access to is a terrible iPhone and even worse iPad camera? I think this more than my fears of being soundly rejected by the interwebs is why I'm on the fence about participating. I mean, you have to have that first Vegan Mofo sometime, right? And it should have decent photos, shouldn't it?

Also October will be my first month returning to veganism after some weird, truthfully not good enough reasons for straying away from it and for some reason that's making me nervous too.

Obviously I overthink everything in my life.. Thoughts? Encouragements? Stale corn muffins thrown really hard to shut me up?

I travel a lot, and I'm shy about taking out the big camera in restaurants, so a lot of my photos are edited iPhone photos. If you have natural light, and can take photos of your food or leftovers in it, great. Otherwise, I think people care more about tasty food than perfect composition or lighting.

I wouldn't worry about it. It's about community, and veganism, not perfect photos. Just do your best! There's some cool photo editing stuff for the iPhone, too. Instagram, camera+, photoshop apps You can hide a myriad of flaws with some creative effects.

I just registered a blog name because I really want to do this this year and not having a blog name I like has stopped me for the past two years. So I thought long and hard for two years and now I have one. I don't even want to do a theme, I just want everyone to read about my boring food because they love me. And because my blog name is so great.

Ok, I'm going to try again. I'm not in the middle of getting ready for craft fairs this year and I already have my theme down and my post ideas started.

I'm thinking about doing Vegan MoFo GOES GREEN, as in lots o' collards, kale, beet greens, etc. in a variety of recipes (wraps, drinks, casseroles). Is that boring? My garden is overflowing with these things, so it's a practical idea. But tell me. Is it borrrring?


NOT boring! I will follow! Mine is going to be an all raw theme. Love the greeeeens :)

meilay, I live in Northern Europe and pretty much only cook (and therefore photograph) at night and have a shitty 6-year-old digital camera and shaky hands. My photos suck. This will be my 3rd MoFo, and they haven't improved at all. It's more about the community and the sharing of vegan awesomeness than impressive food photography.

So, I've been thinking for a while about starting a blog and Vegan Mofo might be the perfect time to do so. There is sort of a dearth of visible fat vegans, and not many people within veganism talking about Health At Every Size. I think it would be interesting to explore the intersection of fat acceptance and veganism, since I don't see a lot of overlap between those groups. I'm probably going to call it My Big Fat Vegan Life.

Hello. This will be my first MoFo. I'm a bit nervous as well. Not sure if I can do 31 days of straight blogging. :s

You totally don't have to! A lot of people only post during the week. Plus, what I like to do is have a few posts ready before hand.

Also, if you really want to post but don't have time, there's always surveys that go around and other memes.

Hope that eases the stress! This is meant to be fun fun fun!

I think I am going to do this and only post on weekdays. Part of me wants to take back that I said I would do this, I am scared. I am not a blogger!

Do the food pics you post have to just be of meals you've made yourself? Can it be a vegan meal you had at a restaurant? I like to do restaurant reviews occasionally and wonder if this would count?

It totally counts. Lots of MoFo'ers blog about other peoples' food.
