  1. Hello,

    My name is Margaret. I'm working with a bunch of other Vegan bloggers to beta test a community chat tool for blogs called Typepath. Vegansaurus, Red Hot Vegans and others are participating and I thought you'd be interested. You have a great blog!

    In short, Typepath lets readers from across the greater vegan community chat in realtime on your blog with readers from dozens or even hundreds of other blogs that share a common interest.
