I’m sorry if that hor­rid Celine Dion song gets stuck in your head, that wasn’t my intent at all.

What I am here to talk about are two excit­ing things to put on your cal­en­dar, one right around the bend and another to start sav­ing your pen­nies for: Vegan MoFo and the Vida Vegan Blog­ger Conference!

Vegan MoFo, in case for some rea­son you have missed the foodie pr0n fun the past few years, is the Vegan Month of Food, when blog­gers com­mit to blog­ging every day for a whole month. It’s a great way to sharpen your writ­ing chops and con­nect with your fel­low blog­gers! The past two years were in Octo­ber, but this year it is in Nove­me­ber. Click here to sign up if you want to par­tic­i­pate and be included in the RSS feed!

The Vida Vegan Blog­ger Con­fer­ence is likely to be new to many of you, because next year will be the first year of it! Come out to vegan mecca to attend pre­sen­ta­tions, panel dis­cus­sions and work­shops held by some of the vegan blog­gers you’ve come to love and who have come to love you (like yours truly!) Visit ven­dor booths, enjoy the com­pany of your fel­low veg­ans and eat your way through Port­land until you are so bloated with vegan good­ness you can hardly stand it.

The con­fer­ence will be cen­trally located in down­town Port­land on a local col­lege cam­pus, with tons of easy access to mass tran­sit and deli­cious food– and reg­is­tra­tion opens this week­end! Check out the con­firmed speak­ers so far!

What do you think? Will you be par­tic­i­pat­ing in Vegan MoFo? Leave a com­ment, I don’t want to miss your posts! What do you think about a vegan blog­ger conference?

    This just makes the nerd in me very happy. I’m always try­ing to go to a con­fer­ence just as tick­ets sell out. So this just makes me very excited!

    I would absolutely love to go, but I’m Canada where no such things exist, boo.
