You care about quality, taste, style, and beauty – but you also probably care about something else, be it maybe social good, enviromental causes, the hunger gap, or health advocacy. If you’ve ever wondered how to turn the passion you hold dear into action – effectively integrate advocacy into your blogging routine, start your own movement or activist group, make a substancive change – this panel is for you.

Learn from bloggers who’ve taken their personal passions and turned them into action that’s changed the lives of their family, their readers, their communities, and the world. Get a roadmap for rallying the troops, creating a stir, and make change that doesn’t fall flat.

1. Who do you look forward to seeing/meeting most at FABC and why? Everyone!  Can’t wait to see some of my long time gluten free friends who are advocates, authors and bloggers.  I’m also pretty stoked to see some of my new bloggy friends from BlogHer ’13.  Of course, I’m ecstatic to make new friends at FABC in Las Vegas.  Many of us know each other through electronic media and will recognize each other immediately so we feel like friends already.

4. What is the best thing about food allergies? There are so many positive things about being diagnosed with celiac disease that I could make you a list from A to Z and then some.  I’ve learned so much about food in the last 5 years. Among the plethora of information is a better understanding of where my food comes from and what it’s truly made of.  One of my other favorite things that being diagnosed is to confirmation of what I’ve known all along, food can be your best friend or your worst enemy.

5. What motivated you to start blogging about food allergies?  Blogging about food sensitivities is both an outlet to vent and a motivator to keep trying until we find the best results.  Regardless of your issues, whether they be celiac disease, anaphylactic allergies or a plethora of food intolerances – there is someone out there that needs your help and/or guidance.  No one should ever find that they are isolated due to allergies or autoimmune disorders.

8. What other blogger has inspired you? My inspiration to begin a blog began with one of my first Twitter encounters with a blogger called The Spicy RD.  She is a phenomenal writer, an incredible food photographer and also an RD.  EA was patient, kind and always there for me when I was trying to figure out whether to start a blog.  Her energy and love of healthy food is contagious.  EA’s blog can be found at http://www.eastewart.com/

9. What is one of your favorite posts written by another blogger and why? One of the best blog posts I’ve ever read came from Alysa at www.inspiredrd.com.  At a time she published this post, much was going awry during Celiac Awareness Month.  Those with celiac disease and NCGS were being called things like “glutards” by people who have no concept of what we deal with on a daily basis.  We were all growing weary and I was quite saddened by the level of food bullying that exists among adults.  If you know me, you know that I am not a crier but this post made me ball like a baby. http://inspiredrd.com/2013/05/what-i-want-you-to-know-celiac-disease.html
