Hey there MoFo’s! Jojo here and I’m super excited to be bringing the MoFies back atcha for 2014! Your team of MoFo organisers has been hard at work reading blogs all month (just like you have!) and after much deliberation and even a little voting we’ve picked just some of our favourites.
We also want to thank every single one of you for participating, reading and commenting throughout the month. Without you MoFo wouldn’t exist and we think you’re all amazing. We’ve all loved scrolling through our preferred readers (I’m a Digg kinda grrl these days) and devouring your posts throughout the month; whether you were posting pictures of your cats photo-bombing your food shoots, celebrating anniversaries or taking us on your vacations we’ve loved every second. Without you MoFo wouldn’t exist and we think you’re all amazing.
This is just round one, round two will be posted tomorrow and round three will be coming your way the day after that. Every single one of our winners will receive a prize from MoFie sponsors The Raw Chocolate Co. Uh huh, you heard that right, prizes! We’re kicking it up a notch this year!
If you see yourself here just drop us an e-mail (many links to the address can be found here) with the subject headline MoFie and your address deet’s and we’ll get your prize in the post.
Without further ado I present The 2014 MoFie Award Winners…
Most Ridiculous Theme goes to Hasta La Vegan for her Bizarre and Outdated Cookbooks theme which was HILARIOUS. Seriously, most of the cookbooks were ridiculous (Pineapple Party Time anyone?) and some of the recipes from those cookbooks (see above!) were even more ridiculous. Hilarity ensued almost every day and I found myself cheering when she made something that actually looked edible! Hasta La Vegan also posted 32 times during the month which kinda deserves it’s own award!
Most Epic Post goes to Kelly from Easy Vegan for her All the Bacon and Eggs I Have post which was part of her (totally epic) Carbs & Recreation theme. If you’ve seen Parks and Recreation you know how often food gets mentioned and if you haven’t seen Parks & Rec what are you waiting for? It’s hilarious! Ron Swanson’s “just give me all the bacon and eggs you have” line is a classic and props to Kelly for veganising this one with all of the vegan bacon and eggs she had!
Blog That Made Us Want to Jump on a Plane goes to Mammi for her adventures in Finnish Coffee Culture. Her posts on the Finnish Coffee Table had us rapt all month and I know I seriously considered purchasing a plane ticket and popping over to eat some of the delicious treats this blogger was whipping up in the kitchen. The Åland Pancake (shown above) was a particular favourite of mine and I loved the daily random facts, I felt like I was learning something about Finland as well as gazing at food which was super cool.
Most Epic Journey goes to Vegan Nom Noms. I know first hand how hard it is to blog from the road sometimes and Nicole kept it up all month. Nicole currently lives in Germany but she spent September road tripping across the USA, she was in Atlanta, Portland, Austin, New Orleans and a tonne of other places and she found that delicious looking box of chocolates in Anchorage, Alaska. Nice one Nicole!
The Community Spirit award goes to Cadry of Cadry’s Kitchen for organising the Speedy Delivery Postcard Swap. We loved the idea of this international event and people were sending postcards, letters and packages all over the place. It was so great to watch!
Most Mouthwatering Instagram Account goes to kippysnacks. For the first year ever we opened up MoFo participation to our Instagram friends, some people went Instagram only and some people used it alongside their blogs. I was the person re-posting some of the things that caught my eye on the official VeganMoFo Instagram account so I was all up in your pictures and one account that really stood out was Kip’s. She was posting pictures from the Vegetarian Festival in Thailand as well pictures of food she’d been eating at home in London interspersed with hostel kitties and more. Great work!
That’s it for today folks, check back tomorrow for round two!
