As I mentioned in the previous post, there's been a lot of chaos going on with this site. It's a long story, but suffice to say that I had to switch web hosts, and transferring my old and beloved domain (Happy Vegan!) has proved to be very difficult and a massive headache.
So I had the option of using my original Blogspot domain from way back in the day (super-vegan.blogspot.com - can you tell I'm creative with names?), but that seemed kind of lame. So instead, I'm just going with something completely new. Maybe just for a year, or maybe for always - I don't really know at this point.
I'm calling it "The Real Meal". The last two years of blogging, I've been experimenting and searching for a focus, and I know deep down that I want it to be based on whole and healthy foods. Partly because I'm passionate about eating well (most of the time), and partly because I want this blog to be a testament of how easy and freakin' delicious it can be to eat healthy foods.
I also like The Real Meal because sometimes us vegans are thought to eat fake food - you know, that lentil patty is "fake" because there's no meat, and tempeh is just a second-rate imposter. But what could possibly be more real than meals made right from nature's pantry?
Things are still in transition, but I've fixed a good deal of the links, and will continue to fix more today. Everything should still work fine for those of you who subscribe to this blog, and the link (blog.happy-vegan.com) is still functional and will re-route you here. So basically, you can change your links if you want, but they won't be broken if you don't.
...Except for the links that point to a specific post - those will be broken. I'm going to try to get that sorted out this weekend, and email a few of you with the details.
So my current address is www.the-real-meal.com, complete with dashes because I'm trying to haggle with the current owner of the dash-free version (cross your fingers!). I'm simultaneously excited and exasperated about this change, because my brain is falling out of my head and I liked being Happy Vegan. At least I still get to be a happy vegan, though.
Speaking of changes, Logan's having his own batch of 'em right now. Did I ever mention he's an artist? He's got a digital gallery you should check out, because it's pretty groovy, and his strange sense of humor totally shines through. Anyway, he's working hard to make a go of freelancing work in the new year, so please send him your good vibes. And jobs. :)
Thanks for your understanding and all that - and seriously, thanks for visiting this blog. It means a ton to me that anyone actually reads this thing. And here's to an awesome new future full of adventures, fun times, cats and great food. *Cue glass clink*
And now, to change the subject completely, here are a few links:
The 56 Best/Worst Similes - this is super amusing. Each time I visit this page I laugh.
This is a t-shirt that I'm totally buying.
And I really want to veganize this Rugelach...they just look so damn good.
