Vstream Zine - the First Ever 54-page Zine about Vegan Blogs - Available Worldwide

Press Releases

Vstream Zine - the First Ever 54-page Zine about Vegan Blogs - Available Worldwide






San Diego, Ca (Vocus/PRWEB) March 18, 2011

It's officially here the "Vstream Zine - A Vegan Blog Reporter!" Vegan Mainstream is excited to offer the first ever 54-page Zine about Vegan Blogs. It's a compilation of blog recommendations and preferences from your favorite vegans on the planet - not watered down at all. It's sure to become an official guide to the world of vegan blogging.

On Monday, Vegan Mainstream announced the first edition of VStream: The Vegan Blog Reporter. This project started with a simple idea: to create a guide that would help old-school vegans, new veg heads, and people exploring veganism, a list of the best vegan blogs online. However, the team learned quickly that classifying "the best" was nearly impossible because everyone had their own opinion.

So, instead of providing a flavorless list of the top 10 or 25 blogs, Vegan Mainstream asked some top bloggers, influential vegans and their own staff to tell readers about their favorite blogs in their own words.

This compilation of recommendations will equip a novice or expert with new insights to some of the funniest, strangest and most awesome blogs the Vegan community has to offer. In addition, interviews were conducted of fellow bloggers to get their perspective on how they started their blogs, why they think blogging is important to the vegan community and how readers can become more active in the vegan blogosphere.

To top it all off, the Zine includes a directory of 200 vegan blogs. Readers simply click on the links in the digital copy of the Zine to quickly access any blog in the directory.

The Zine is available as a Print or Digital version. The printed version includes a free copy of the digital version, thus creating the best value.

Vegan Mainstream chose a third party to manage the print version to ensure the Vstream Zine is available to a worldwide audience. So, readers anywhere in the globe can access a printed or digital copy.

Download the digital copy today to get instant access to the Vstream Zine. Or get your feet wet with a Free Sneak Peek copy.

Who's There?

Reminds me of the 'maverick' Episcopal clergyman from the 1960s, Malcolm Boyd, who sat on tall stools in Sixties coffeehouses and read poetry and other meditations.

Boyd hit the scene with Are You Running with Me, Jesus?, which was NOT a book about jogging.

As I sit in offices layered with stuffed bookcases, I think of how many books there are on so many different sides of issues - not just TWO sides of things - could be 3 sides or 4 sides.

Another side to the "Are you there?" controversy is the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer's The God Who Is There. Some of us might have thought, fleetingly, that Schaeffer was just 'begging the question' on God's existence based on the insufficiency of other widely-held worldviews grounded in modernity, such as deconstruction, absurdity, plurality of 'personal truths', etc. Nonetheless, Francis and Edith Schaeffer set up a popular working retreat in Huemes, Switzerland, called L'Abri, where Evangelical dropouts could go pray for answers to prayer, while they studied with this professional philosopher who had dropped out of religious liberalism.

What kind of dry fleece could they craftily set out for God to trick Him into answering their prayers?

The problem of pain and suffering is one of the classical problems of theodicy, and as more and more folks are globally aware (missionaries have been globally aware for millennia) of the depth and expanse of human suffering, the reflections become even MORE poignant, particularly when we consider priorities in the allocation of scares resources - but isn't that how economics is often defined: the quantitative social science of dealing with scarcities - real and presumed, temporary and long-term?

Those of us who have been sensitized to the nature of suffering as pervasive through ALL of sentient life realize that mere palliation is not the total answer. I was pharmacy students on the hoof, parading past my Huntington Avenue windows all day long, but the problem of suffering is not merely about aging and injury, nor about humans alone. Whether we call it 'structural inefficiences' or whatever, agency - human wills/volition - and action from that volition - are often set in motion so that real suffering occurs, not only in the agents, but also in both overt victims and unintended victims.

We KNOW that WE are there, but we're still quibbling about how MANY of us and which of us are morally significant enough to consider... reflectively, ethically.

Coffee smoothies, our communion
Of our vegetarian union
Symbol of ongoing grip
On our ways of being hip

Caffeine, our necessity
For each working person's me.
