I'll definitely be giving away multiple cookbooks during VeganMofo this year.

I plan on giving away Lick It (vegan ice cream book), and Vegan for $4 A Day, The Happy Herbivore Cook Book, and possibly two or three other vegan cookbook. I'll also be giving away chocolate from a local Chocolatier, Olive and Sinclair (Nashville, TN), and some locally roasted coffee from Drew's Brew's. I have every intention of doing a large package giveaway of my favorite local items as well, but we'll see if finances allow such a thing.

My blog is: http://laceylovesfood.wordpress.com and I should probably update my profile with that information.

I plan to give away a copy of My Sweet Vegan during Mofo madness!! And maybe some more stuff, but definitely that because I have two copies and one needs a good home.

The only one where I know the date for sure is Friday Oct. 14th, I'm giving away a copy of Papa Tofu Loves Ethiopian. I'm not sure about the rules or pertinent info, but I won't make it a random contest. I'll likely choose the winner on some sort of writing merit.

I will be doing at least one cookbook giveaway - Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar - as well as a few vegan convenience food goodies. The giveaways will be tied into a contest of some sort, which I haven't fully decided on the details of just yet. The blog is http://theunintentionalvegan.com/vegan-blog. The first contest will start on October 3rd.

I wanted to remove my above post, but I don't see any option to do so. I am no longer going to participate in MoFo, though i do plan on blogging daily and giving things away. I wasn't able to install the widget to create an RSS successfully and I honestly don't have any more time to devote to making it work. If an admin could remove my post I would be really grateful.

Hey there, PPK and MoFo fiends!

I'm so excited about VeganMoFo. It inspired me to seed and water my little blog more than ever and pay more attention to my readers on the spiderwebs. In recompense for your great support and greed for yums, I'm offering two giveaways!

Giveaway #1 on October 5
A VEG*N tablet bracelet or necklace. These handsculpted pendants reading "veg*n" are a perfect match for any outfit. With their eclectic selection of beads paired with elegant silver or gold findings, consider these your new go-to accessories for a casual day or a spunky night. They are sure to start a conversation! I love to wear mine with a superchunky knitted scarf.

Giveaway #2 on October 25
A *SURPRISE* Bonte Bough necklace. Bonte (pronounced bon-tay) is the French term meaning "kindness". These elegant Bonte Boughs feature handsculpted birds stamped with the letter "V" to honor those who live a committed, compassionate veg lifestyle. Beautiful glass beads accent our feathered friend for a polished statement. (Note: Pictured is an example of the Bonte style, but the colors of your Bough are a surprise!)

Happy Blogging!


P.S. I definitely recommend FeedBurner for your RSS needs. It's simple and easy. Enjoy!

I'll be doing giveaways for the first time ever! Last night I unexpectedly became the recipient of a ton of goodies that I'm planning on giving away! I have a ton of coupons for EB Coconut Spread, Mindful Mayo, Gardein and So Delicious Coconut products. And some pepper grinders. And Dandies. So, instead of filling a warehouse with this stuff, I'm going to pass it along :-)

I plan on doing a few give aways, but I am trying to see if I can get a couple of folks to donate stuff.

I'm trying to increase traffic on my site, so I'm thinking to qualify, the winner would have to be a follower of my blog. Do you think that's an OK idea.

I will for sure be giving away a copy of Joni Marie Newman's Best Veggie Burgers on the Planet on October 7th. The lucky winner will have their copy by the time it is featured in the PPK Cookbook Challenge.

my blog is www.vegintraing.blogspot.com. The link is also in my sig.

I'm doing giveaways every day for MoFo. Cookbooks, tea, chocolate, and more! Some will be US only (my hands are tied), some US/Canada, and some worldwide. One will be for PPKers only.

heh. had you ever reviewed anything out of it? i still haven't made anything from it yet.


also would any of you object to my promoting your giveaways on vegancoupons? (facebook and twitter, no official blog yet.) i'm going to err on the side of publicity, so if you really would rather i not, just let me know (via e-mail or PM) <3

::edit:: celyn. duly noted. <3

lots of givers-away have that requirement, but most have it be a "bonus entry"

so they'll say one comment on the post gets you an entry, follow the blog via rss or feedburner gets another, follow on FB, twitter, etc. gets more and so-on. most bloggers require you to make a separate comment for each action, and some explicitly ask to combine all actions into one comment. (it's fascinating observing who follows the rules and who don't.)

I have one company who is going to require following them on FB or Twitter or joining their email list, but other than that I am keeping it as simple as possible! I like to think about Vegan MoFo as a celebration of all that's vegan, so I link to the companies since they are so generous and let the rest be as it is.
