The Fleeting Nature of Fame

So, after declaring my blog one of the best of the web, Veg News magazine has not seen fit to put me in the running for the 2008 Veggie Awards. In a rush of snivelling self-importance I wrote in my blog and voted for myself. (whimper, whine)

I wrote in your blog too! But only because you post more often than Susan does at FFV. So keep it up! (Can't wait for the cookbook!)

Celine said...

dude, don't even get me started. <3

Jan said...

Me too! I wrote you in because I use lots of your recipes and you post so much more than anyone else. You go, Dad!

Hey, I wrote you in as well.
Everything I have made from your blog has been great. Can't say the same about the others that I visit...
As for the cookbook (two birds going on here), yeah, the fake thing is good and all, but it sure looks a bit carni to me.. Some color would be good.

If it makes you feel any better - I got the survey and wrote you in as well.....and that was before you even whimpered and whined about it! :)

i wrote you in too, even before i saw this... i actually checked the list 3 times, shocked that you weren't on it already!

I put your blog in the "other" catagory, too! I did, because of your uniqueness of a vegan blog theme, and you seem to do what you do for better reasons than most people. I don't care what Oprah does like some other blogs will list.

Grapes and Peas,

I, too, wrote you in for favorite blog in the Veg News survey, before you even mentioned it. You should have been one of the choices. Maybe you'll win by write-in!

Looks like you have an army of at least 10 folks who (independently) wrote you in! As far as I"m concerned, there are only two blogs vegan parents need to read: vegan lunchbox and you!

I don't normally do those online polls because they spam you with offers after, but I set up a Yahoo just so I could vote. You are the first place I look in over 50 food blogs. Best right in I ever did. Ya wanna run for president?

Yeah, I wrote you in, too.

I'm not a parent but I love my Vegan Dad and my Tofu Mom. You have a terrific blog - I actually didn't know a couple of the blogs there.

of course i wrote you in a few weeks ago. I was also surprised that i had to actually write your name in, instead of just click.
