Be the change. Go vegan!


Hi, I’m Belinda.

I’m vegan and live in Sydney, Australia.

I love cooking.
I love being vegan.
I feel strongly about justice and respect for all animals.
I like to plant seeds.

This is my little piece of the web where these things can merge. I also work in online communications and have a background in graphic design, but this is my non-professional blog. Oh, my star sign is INTJ.

What’s your point?

I really want to promote how easy and brilliant a vegan lifestyle is. Going vegan has truly been one of the best decisions of my life and I want to share it. Read my vegan story.

Perhaps I can connect with and learn from other vegans too. Perhaps I can quell some misconceptions about vegans (I had ‘em once), or help those new to veganism or considering the change. Who knows.

What do you write about?

I blog about what I’ve been doing lately and generally my experience living vegan. This might include things I’ve been cooking, new or interesting products or books I’ve found, or vegan-friendly restaurants or cafes I’ve visited too.

While veganism is more than just eating a plant-based diet (see definition), home cooking does feature prominently… both because I enjoy it and the food is so flipping brilliant!

I’m vegan for ethical reasons and also write about, or link to, interesting advocacy or animal rights stuff I come across. Make no mistake, there are so many talented, smart vegans out there and there’s always a new perspective to be shared.

Of course there may be other miscellany thrown in. This is my little space after all… I make no promises.

Hey, Twitter folk!

If I’ve followed you on Twitter and you’re vegan – howdy comrade! *waves* Let’s tweet sometime!

If I’ve followed and you’re not into animal rights or veganism – howdy! *waves*
If you haven’t met me in real life, you may be a little confused as to why I’m following you. You may even be concerned you’re about to get harangued by one of those animal rights nutters.

Fear not, I don’t bite (that’s an obvious one), I’m not into PETA and I certainly don’t spout obscenities at non-vegans. Actually, I’m non-violent and generally quite reserved.

You just probably have something to say that interests me. There may be a common thread related to my day-job or the area we live for instance. Simple!

Follow back if you like, or not.
