Finding Vegan is the number-one traffic source for my blog, Vegan Iowan. When I began blogging, I felt like I had valuable content to share, but didn’t have anyone to whom it really spoke. Finding Vegan has drawn thousands of people to my blog in the few short months of its existence, and its readers have sparked great conversation and provided excellent feedback to my posts.

Image Cropping Tool - update and solution!

OK, so we have discovered WHY some of your images become distorted when cropped. It is because your files are too large for the tool. 

SOLUTION: Your submitted image must be less that 1000px wide.

(otherwise the crop will become distorted.)

Also, it should be larger than 300px wide or it will look blurry.

So -> submit an image between 300px - 1000px wide.

Some help using the new cropping tool for submissions to FindingVegan.com


HOORAY! The site has been transferred to wordpress from Tumblr. What does this mean for YOU?…

1 - You can now register as a user. Tip: Use your current gallery name as your new username if you want to keep your old gallery.

2 - You can monitor the status of your submission, view and save favorites and browse your gallery. You will also be notified when approved - via email.

3- Less crashing! The old site host crashed A LOT. Well not anymore :)

IMPORTANT: When submitting post remember to add tags that are relevant. (gluten-free, raw, am, oil-free, grain-free, sugar-free, holiday,dessert,entree,video and more) limit on tags, if they do not fit, I will delete one or a few.

***NEW CROPPING TOOL*** You can submit a photo that is ANY size! You will be able to crop in the tool.

If you placed a link to your gallery on your site here is your new gallery link - example for my gallery:
OLD: http://www.findingvegan.com/tagged/lunchboxbunch/
NEW: http://www.findingvegan.com/tagged/userlunchboxbunch/
..add the user before your username in the URL.

Questions? email kathy @ findingvegan dot com

PS… if you are missing any submissions in your gallery from past week please RESUBMIT them. I will re-approve them. I will personally be working to restore a few of the posts that were “lost” but not all will be possible.

Submission Tip!

Happy 2013 everyone! Here is a submission tip for all you talented bloggers: The number one reason submissions get rejected: not resizing your image before submitting. The proper size is 300px wide by 260px height. However, you can submit any ratio that is close to this sizing. Please do not submit any image smaller than 300px in width. Thanks and keep the beautiful vegan recipes coming!

Faster Submission Approval Times!

Dear FindingVegan.com bloggers - great news! Our submission queue is finally caught up! Expect faster approval times! From 1-3 days now. Hooray!
