It seems like just yesterday I was doing a giveaway on this blog for reaching 10,000 Herbies (October 2011) and 25,000 Herbies (July 2012). 

*The Giveaway is closed*


My, how our little plant-based world has grown!!

Every day, I feel blessed and privileged to be part of the Happy Herbivore community. I am humbled by your support and HH's success.

It's been a long, wonderful road (filled with potholes and challenges too!) but it's one I'm happy to have been traveling down for 5.5 years. 

Since all of this just sort of happened — I certainly had no idea what Happy Herbivore would become when I started blogging back in 2007! — I've rolled with the punches and tried to ride the waves wherever they took me. Not the best business model, but what I've got. 

I like to think my story is one of perseverance and passion. When people ask me my secret to success I say, "I work a lot." And I do — I love what I do though, so that old adage is true: Find a job you love and you'll never work another day in your life. 

It still feels like everything has happened so fast!


One of the reasons I went on "hiatus" these last few months was to give myself some time to breathe after the long race. I've also decided to keep the journey from being one big blur,  that I needed to stop and celebrate small victories and acknowledge milestones, even if they are small in the grand scheme. 

So, we celebrated with a party when I'd sold 100,000 books (in August 2012), and now we're celebrating 50,000 Herbies on Facebook!

I can't believe it — and Herbie the elephant feels seriously loved! 

So to commemorate 50k, I'm doing a big giveaway on the blog today. 

The Loot:


Winner may select up to 3 plant-based books such as The Pleasure Trap, The China Study, Engine 2 Diet, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Forks Over Knives, The Starch Solution, etc. etc. (Total value limited to $50).

I'll open this giveaway up to international Herbies (outside of the United States) — but please note the selection might be smaller based on what will ship internationally from Amazon or The Book Depository.
