First, let me say thank you from the very bottom of my heart. Your comments tomy memoir post lifted my spirits, gave me strength and reminded me how lucky I am in life, despite everything. I am so very touched and honored to know all of you.
If you missed the post, be sure to check it out especially for the comments. There are so many personal stories of bravery, hope and resilience. I'm so sorry that so many people can relate to my woes on a personal level but I believe this is why we have each other -- to draw strength.
Anyway, as I mentioned in my post I have a lot of new ideas I'm going to explore here on Happy Herbivore which includes bridging the gap between me and you, the community I love.
I've always wanted Happy Herbivore to be something beyond my companion -- something bigger than me.I want Happy Herbivore to be a community: a safe space where anyone can feel welcomed and not judged. A place where we can come together to show our appreciation and passion for eating healthy, delicious meals.
So, my first step is to bring your voices to this blog. Happy Herbivore will no-longer be just about me and my voice, but it will have your voice and your unique spirit too.I'm going to start inviting guests to blog on Happy Herbivore -- much like my mom has been doing for the past few months (read Mama Herbivore's posts here and here).
We'll completely collaborate together and each guest post will have his or her own style. I've already got a few contributors lined up and I'm really excited about these guests posts!
I hope you'll join in on the fun!
