On October 2nd, I wrote the post, Popcorn Activism, A Fun Way to Help Animals. The basis of Popcorn Activism is to use movies like, Vegucated, to promote awareness about veganism. To generate interest in this idea, I hosted a giveaway of a signed copy of the book, Meatonomics.
I want to thank everyone who helped me to spread the word about Popcorn Activism. In fact, I appreciate all of you so much, that you’re each getting a shout out below. First, however; let me announce the giveaway winner.
And the Winner is…
25 Bloggers to Check Out!
Now I want to give a shout out to all the compassionate people who helped me to promote Popcorn Activism. They’re all bloggers with fabulous blogs that I hope you’ll check out.
1. Wolf is My Soul
Wolf is My Soul is a wonderful, passionate animal welfare blog. There are so many great posts on this blog that it’s hard for me to pick one out to share. So go check out the blog for yourself!
2. Ohh So Fattening!
I know that a lot of vegan bloggers love to cook and enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. Not me! I only cook because it’s the best way for me to feed my family fresh, healthy vegan food. Thus one of the things I like about Janice’s Ohh So Fattening! blog, is that she’s into quick and easy vegan recipes. If you like easy cooking too, check out her Creamy Avocado Pasta recipe.
3. Our Compass
Stacey from Our Compass has a wonderful animal rights blog. If you haven’t already done so, you’ve got to check out her Vegan Guides (they’re downloadable and free!). I’d also like to thank Karen, the lovely poet from Our Compass.
4. Veggies, Yarns & Tails
Geraldine Hartman, from Veggies, Yarns & Tails is a vegetarian and cook instructor, what’s more, she’s written two cookbooks. Her latest is The Groovy Green Kitchen: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker.
5. Silk and Spice
Sophia from Silk and Spice has been such an inspiration to me. Despite the fact that she was barely able to cook five years ago, she now creates the most delicious vegan and vegetarian food you can imagine. And her food photography is lovely too!
6. The World of Jenny Pugh
7. Coconut and Berries
Emma from Coconut and Berries is another vegan foodie. I love her recipes because in addition to being vegan, most of them are really healthy. She tempted the other day with her Leek, Sun-dried Tomato and White Bean “Risotto”.
8. Dans Mon Bedon
I can’t thank Julie from Dans Mon Bedon enough for posting Vegucated on her blog. And this is just one of the many wonderful ways she’s advocating for animals. I love her fun collection of vegan comics.
I’ve been fortunate to connect with beautycalyptique, a beautiful blogger who describes herself as a geek, gamer and book nerd (she certainly doesn’t look the part!). We’ve had some awesome exchanges on my blog, and I love her cruelty-free beauty, health and more blog.
10. Thoughts That Might Just Be Useful in the Future
When I think of business these days, the abuses of the meat and dairy industries come to mind. But business, itself, is not the problem since many businesses are compassionate. Stephen Cramer who writes the forward thinking business blog, Thoughts That Might Just Be Useful in the Future, is one business dude who gives me hope in corporate compassion.
11. Sunshine and Slaughter
Jean’s Sunshine and Slaughter is a wonderful vegan blog with a variety of illuminating posts covering the gamut of vegan interests from animal welfare to vegan health. Those of you curious about the now popular, Paleo Diet, check out Why Paleo Diets Belong in the Stone Age.
12. Sherlokian’s Blog
Sherlokian’s Blog is a blog about Sherlock Holmes, movies, books and nature. This blog also promotes animal rights issues.
13. Vegan Videos
Ruthful Hawes started a page called Vegan Videos. Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to locate this page.
14. Peace 4 Animals
The wonderful blog, Peace 4 Animals, stands up for animal rights. I love they’re saying, “Activism is what we do, when animals are no longer suffering, then we will relax (and have a beer).”
15. Poppy’s Patisserie
Poppy from Poppy’s Patisserie is not only an amazing vegan chef (just check out her Baked Vanilla Cheesecake with Blackberry Syrup), but she is also one of the most compassionate people I know. She is passionate about helping animals as well as street children. Poppy was so supportive of my activism idea, that she wrote her own Popcorn Activism post that featured her lovely chickens.
16. ESGEE Musings
Shakti from ESGEE Musings helped me to realize that if I wanted to promote the movie, Vegucated, I needed to tell people how they could watch it. Thank you Shakti!
17. Chilean Adventures
18. Sex, Spirit, Soul Mates and Chocolate…Ivonne’s Journey

22. Vegan Activist
Vegan Activist is lovely blog that stands for the autonomy and dignity of all beings, and the integrity of the ecology which sustains us all. The author, J, is currently focusing more on making art and growing organic vegan food than on blogging, but sometimes still writes a post here and there. Check out J’s art here.
