A short blogging break: it’s decluttering time

Hi everyone, I’m going to be changing the blog up a bit (like cleaning out the gajillion pointless categories and decluttering the tags for starters) and a few other things.  All this requires a bit of a break while I move things around and make everything sparkly clean and makeovery.  Plus I need to find more time to go op shopping 😉

You can catch me on Twitter @Veganopoulous

See you when I get back!

Veganopoulous on Twitter

I’ve done what I always swore I wouldn’t do… I’ve signed up to Twitter. I tend to shy away from social networking types of things because my usage of them can quickly escalate, meaning I am distracted from Real Life stuff. But I’ve received quite a few messages asking if I’m on Twitter so I decided to give it a go. I’ll be using it pretty much mainly as a tie-in with the blog, taking pictures around my beautiful home town and the occasional display of really bad humour.

Some Wee Changes to The Blog

Hi folks, I’ve been cleaning the blog a little lately.  My tags were a bit of a mess, so I’ve gone through all my posts and allocated them to more sense-making tags and categories. It’s still not ideal but I’m messing around with some ideas and, time permitting, I might be jazzing things up a bit more soon.

First up, you may have noticed a new page up there called Eateries.  On this page, I have listed by suburb all the dining places I’ve blogged about.  Clicking on the suburb’s name will take you to all blog posts tagged with [suburb name].  Clicking on an individual eatery name will take you to all blog posts for that eatery.  Eatery seems a weird word to me, but there you go.  I can’t say restaurant, because not everything is a restaurant. I’d also have to say cafe, standing service only, truck, etc!  So ‘eatery’ seemed the easier fit!


Welcome to Veganopoulous

Welcome!  I became vegan in early-ish 2012 (yeeeeears too late *sigh*) and am now in the process of trial and error when it comes to finding vegan dishes my family will eat.  I sneak vegies in to foods.  I lie without hesitation.  But hey, if it tastes good and they eat it, I’ll risk the bad karma.

I’ll be posting about recipes I’ve tried and how the critics rated them.  My most creative critic is my eight year old son.  “No offence Mummy, but this looks like super compressed tiny balls of poop”.  See what I mean?  Buckwheat never sounded so good.

As I don’t want to use the names of my children here, I’ve had to think up some suitable nicknames.  One of their  favourite TV shows (and mine *cough*) is Arthur.  Now, Arthur is eight years old like my son.  And his little sister DW is four years old, like my daughter.  At the time of trying to think up nicknames, these seem suitable enough.  So here are my Arthur and my DeeW (let’s spell it that way), in a most realistic representation:

Thanks for visiting and I hope you stick around  🙂
