When is the deadline for VeganMoFo VI?
This year, the deadline is August 28, 2013.
How do I sign up?
Just mosey on over to the blog and fill out the form on this post.
I love VeganMoFo but I missed the deadline, can I still sign up?
While you are welcome to join in on the blogging fun, we cannot add people to the official feed after the deadline because of the amount of work it entails to put everything together.
To elaborate, we put all of the blogs into a file and then allow people to download that file. Even if we add people to the file later, the people who have already downloaded it won’t have the new blogs in their RSS feed. That’s why it’s important to keep your eye on the deadline.
Do I have to be vegan to participate?
Absolutely not! Anyone who wants to blog about vegan food for a month is welcome to do so. However, during MoFo we ask that participants keep their blog strictly vegan including all images. Yes, even if it’s not straight-up milk/eggs/meat. Also, yes, this means honey.
My partner/children/friends aren’t vegan, am I allowed to mention this?
We aren’t going to vegan police your blog if you mention your husband eats tuna, but please don’t post pictures of said tuna. We had a few instances of people doing this in past years, and it was disturbing for people who were perusing what is supposed to be a 100% vegan blogging event.
Do I have to post every day in order to not be kicked off the blog roll?
No! However, participants should aim for 20 posts during the month of VeganMoFo. Any blogs we notice without content, or are brought to our attention due to inactivity will be automatically removed from our feed.
I have no idea how i’m going to post about food for a whole month! Where can I find ideas?
Check out this thread on the PPK forums for ideas and inspiration.
I’m not much of a cook, what can I post about?
You can post about your favorite convenience products, restaurant reviews, your amazing microwave concoctions, whatever! You do not have to be a foodie to participate.
Help, I can’t figure out the address for my RSS feed!
The most common blogging platforms are wordpress, blogger/blogspot, and tumblr, and they all have their own built-in RSS feed ready to go!
If you still need help, email us and we’ll figure it out!
I’m only interested in reading blogs that are gluten-free/healthy/raw, is there a list for specific types of blogs?
While there won’t be a separate RSS feed, we did ask people to pick from a few categories this year, so we can compile lists on the site. Those lists will be posted after the deadline, so people can pick individual blogs to read if they want.
I just want to sign up my blog full of spam links, is that cool?
Nope! If you sign up a spam blog, or any blog and then do not post anything MoFo related, we will remove you.
I don’t normally post about food, can I continue my personal posts during MoFo?
Of course! While some people do start a second blog just for MoFo, it’s not a requirement that you post about nothing else during the month.
What do I do if I see someone posting non-vegan items or spam?
Email us at email@example.com and we will remove the offending blog quickly. However, as explained above, what we do to the bundle or the lists on this site don’t affect anyone’s feed reader, so make sure you unsubscribe!
How can I help next year?
If you are interested in volunteering for MoFo, you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) . Duties range from design to putting the RSS feed together to writing round-up posts, no special skills are needed to help.
