The next best thing to an RSS feed bundle: The VeganMoFo OPML file

I’d like to interrupt the regular string of vegan-tastic roundups and giveaways with some special news: this is PRACTICALLY the RSS Feed you’ve been waiting for.

Here’s the thing.

We hear ya.

We wish there was a way to publicize an RSS feed bundle like the good old days of Google Reader (which retired over the summer), but apparently that breaks the internet or something (I’m guessing) and unless anyone out there has stumbled upon another form of this we haven’t yet — and trust me, we’ve all been looking here at VeganMoFo central — there are three primary ways we suggest perusing the epic, VeganMoFo VII blogs:

1) Check the Blogrolls

Go ahead and peruse the breakdowns and categories, bookmark the ones that catch your eye and follow your favorites (whether it’s via blogger, wordpress, or whatever reader service you’re using), etc.

Here’s the gigantic list of everybody who signed up by the deadline.


This is the random, super appreciated VeganMoFo blog generator cleverly developed by the Tates, the fine folks behind Food for Lovers. Digging what pops up? Again, bookmark, follow, and add it to your own reader or favorites folder.

3) Dum dum dum…Download the brand new OPML file.

Here’s the link. It should open in Google Drive (where we have it stored), which you can then download to your computer.

Really, this is easier than it sounds:

  1. Click download.
  2. Import the file into whatever reader you’re using (I’m personally liking Feedly and The Older Reader, for two quick choices…feel free to share your go-to below!)
  3. Get ready to start reading lots and lots and lots of new blogs.

Here’s the thing: If you happen to notice a non-vegan post in the bunch or don’t like one for whatever reason, you now have the power to delete it from your feeds. You know, as if something like that would ever happen. In the past, your friendly VeganMoFo volunteer organizers did this with the official Google Bundle, but once you download this file, it’s in yours hands. The same goes if you see a blog missing — you are more than welcome and encouraged to add it to your own reader!

So, that’s that.

Please thank VeganMoFo volunteer Mary for her amazing, hard work on devouring spreadsheets and bringing that file to the masses!

    Not sure how I got left out of the OPML file, but I did. On the blog roll a-ok… That’s disappointing.
