There might be more options available here, but I still need help. I still reach out for guidance and support along my journey. The internet has opened many doors for us to gain support and knowledge. There are tons of vegan websites and forums, some are good and others are great. After lots of trail and error and spending time on these sites, I'll share with you where I lurk around the web.
Post Punk Kitchen Forums - The PPK is full of knowledge and off the wall humor. It's strictly vegan and they squash spammers very quickly. There are a ton of different forums all with a defined purpose. The Foyer is for the random life stuff, most of it is vegan related and always good for a quick laugh, and Food Porn is a great place to show off all the good stuff that you cook. There are also forums for companion animals, health, gardening, and a ton of other things. I recommend hanging around and watching the forum for a few days before you make your first post to get a feel for the way things work. You'll find me there as theempire.
Veggie Boards - Veggie Boards is a great place for the beginning vegan to get their legs. The forums here are for vegetarians and vegans, so not everything may apply to you, but many of the veteran posters are vegan and very helpful. There's a much more conservative feel on veggieboard, so use a bit of caution when posting. If you can deal with the GIGANTIC ad banner across the top and clunky navigation of the site, there is a wealth of information and support here. You'll find me here as stay vegan.
Twitter - Like this really needs any explanation... If you're smart about the people you choose to follow, Twitter can be like going to vegan school every day you log in. I follow vegan chefs, animal rights activists, vegan moms, and Shaq. Feel free to follow me and follow the people that I do.
There certainly are a ton more forums and social media outlets out there, but these are the ones that I regularly visits, contribute to and learn from. So stop by and say hi!
