50+ High-Quality Vegan Blogs To Follow in 2021
I still remember how hard it was to find quality resources when I first became vegan.
Sure, there have been some influential films and documentaries. But sometimes you’re in the mood to read a quick post to give you that boost of reassurance and a sense of belonging.
Tapping into vegan blogs is a great way to get fresh and unique content written by passionate individuals.
However, with the internet exploding in the last couple of decades, it’s become a very crowded space.
It takes five minutes to set up a blog or a YouTube channel. With so many people creating content, it becomes challenging to find a blog worth subscribing to.
Don’t get me wrong. I think it’s great that people want to spread the vegan message. But to stand out on the internet, you have to take your blog seriously.
In this post, we’ve scoured the web for the best vegan blogs we could find. We’ve hand-selected blogs based on the following criteria:
Is it up to date? Sticking to a consistent blogging schedule is hard work, and not many bloggers make it past year one. So we want to acknowledge those who have stayed steady and dependable to their communities.
Is it 100% vegan? We became vegan for ethical reasons, so this message mustn’t be compromised in this list. There are so many beautiful food bloggers who claim to be “nearly vegan” or plant-based with having a few eggs or honey now and then. We love these blogs and will continue to follow them, but for the purpose of this list, we’ve only curated 100% vegan blogs.
Is the photography amazing? Anyone can start a blog, but not many put in the time to hone their craft, this includes photography. This is especially important for vegan food bloggers. If you want to share your delicious recipes with the world, you need to have great photography.
Is the design simple and clear? As minimalists, we appreciate simple design. Design that lets the content be the lead singer. We also feel it’s essential to have a website that is mobile-friendly as most people are reading content on their smartphones.
Do they have a unique message? We want to promote vegan blogs that believe in compassion, health and sustainability. You can usually tell straight away from the blogs tagline or their about page. We want to know the bloggers behind the brand and what their personal story is. We also love vegan blogs that have a point of difference, whether it’s a type of cuisine they focus on or a design aesthetic. For example, we cover a range of topics on this blog, but our focus is the intersection of minimalism and veganism. That’s what makes this blog unique.
Is it a single-author blog? We love getting to know individuals who run blogs. That personal connection gets lost with major publications. So while we love websites like Live Kindly, we’ve decided to only include the little guys and gals in the post although some of these single-author (or small team) blogs have more traffic than the prominent publications!
Vegan blogs of all kinds. I just want to make it clear that this is not a roundup focusing solely on vegan recipe blogs. While they take up a big chunk of this list, we were also looking for bloggers writing about fashion, the environment, health and anything in between.
With all of that said, here are our top picks for vegan blogs in 2021!
