Treats week sounds good too. If we did it in November, that could tie in with Thanksgiving week, I mean I'm not American so I don't completely know about it but it seems like it's a week for indulgences. So a treats/indulgences/specials week could be good.

I would love to do a November MoFo! You start to get into the holidays too so there are a lot of possibilities for post topics.

Either October or November is ok for me, I'll go with the majority on that.

Hey all -- PPK super-lurker but longtime VeganMoFo participant/blogger/fan here... found this thread when Googling for MoFo 2016 info. :) I'm willing to help plan, coordinate, etc. if more support is still needed. :) MoFo inspires so much nostalgia for me, and I'd love to help keep it going.

FWIW, I like the idea of weekly themes/inspiration/prompts -- participants could work those into any their own monthly themes pretty easily, I'd think.

Ok, so weekly themes seem popular, let's go with that! If anyone can think of any problems with/improvements on these, let me know:

1. Memories
2. International
3. Treat yourself
4. Rainbow

That will cover 28 days, so we'll still have two or three leftover days, depending on which month we choose. I guess if we go with October, two Halloween days to finish would be fun. And in November, maybe extend or move around 'Treat yourself' week to incorporate Thanksgiving, because I would guess that's a good fit? Anyone with stronger feelings or expertise on Thanksgiving can guide me on that!

What's the general consensus: October or November?

I think November would be a good one to go for. We've had "fall/autumn" stuff a lot with the month being September, November would be a chance to create more wintery food and explore a different season, even looking towards Christmas. Perhaps giving people a chance to come up with more ideas that aren't the same autumn foods (I know I get stuck!). It also gives more time for promotion as well.

Any Americans care to weigh in on the Thanksgiving thing? Would it be good to have a "treat yourself" week around then? Or are you too busy for blogging at Thanksgiving?

Another thought - if we do do "treat yourself" it could be "Treat yourself (& others)" if people are making food for their families/friends for thanksgiving.

If we go for November, maybe one week should have a winter theme?

I've always felt stressed out blogging during Thanksgiving week, to be honest, but acknowledging that and working it into the theme would help.

I think November is fun!

Is anyone here into organizing? We can add you into the "Secret MoFo" rooms ; )

Based on feedback and observations, well, I'd recommend doing less round-up and giveaway style, but letting this become a bit more DIY flow, with an updated landing page, graphic set (ideally), and a hashtag....but when in doubt, embracing a month and using #veganmofo is good stuff.

I think Vixki and I are keen to organise, it would be great if you could add us and pass along any further wisdom!

I vote for November, since we've already had it in October and September. I think it's fun to move it around to different months to get different seasonal ingredients, holidays, cravings, etc.
Or why not make it really different and go for December this year? That would also give everyone more time to plan.

Yeah, part of our plan was to move it around to different months, so that it would feature different holidays, different produce, different seasons in different hemispheres, etc etc.

I agree with jdfunks - I think MoFo could benefit from simplication
#veganmofo2017 or #mofo2017 or whatever for all FB/Instagram/other social media I don't know about
Official graphics are useful, especially for blogs to feature
It is nice to have a blogroll somewhere for all the bloggers planning to participate, since they aren't as easily found through hashtags

But I think giveaways could be completely done away with (unless it's someone's theme)

MANY people loved the daily prompts, but I like the idea of weekly themes, and of course, if someone feels inspired to do their own theme, that is always wonderful and encouraged!

I'm definitely keen to help organise. I don't mind doing a few roundup style posts if anyone thinks they'd be good - I know lots of people must have read them as the few posts I was featured on always got the most clicks to my blog haha.

Hashtags to participate are great, especially since facebook uses them too now so if anyone has a public page for their blog they can use that.

I'm interested in helping too, but am also ok with being an enthusiastic participant if everything has been covered!

I like the idea of weekly themes, since you won't feel pressured to get something done every day, but at the same time you can post several times throughout the week within the same theme, if you want.

(Slightly OT, but honestly, I'd like that year round. I don't know of good vegan tags to search on instagram. Everything just brings up smoothie bowls, rainbows of raw fruit, selfies, non-food things, non-vegan food, animal abuse pictures... so I don't usually even look.)

I liked the roundup posts too, and hopefully between us we'll have enough time to churn out a few. I have no idea how to run a giveaway, so I'm happy to avoid that and just focus more on the blogging/community side of it.

Hi mods! Can you add the new VeganMoFo organizers to the secret mofo rooms? <3<3<3


Also, I can throw my hat in for one roundup, if considered helpful. I'm thinking of doing one thematic vs. time-based. Mmmm, November seems so far off and swell.

Oh, and poke Ctate to see if RandomoFo can happen?
