The standard response to the vegan thing appears to be "That's admirable"
Has the world change that much in 6 years? or just my friends? or is it just more socially acceptable to be vegan?
I suppose the fact I was veggie, put me over in that direction in the eyes of most meat-eaters to start with, so it's just become a more extreme version of what I was before rather than something new.
I also wasn't broadcasting the intimate details of my life on the internet back then either, so that probably affects who I've had comments back from as well I suppose. After all, internet forums are renowned for their habbit of often being more liberal than the outside world.
I suppose also, the fact that a blog is more one sided then a conversation changes things a bit as well. Whereas most of the feedback for the veggieness came from conversations including lines like "I've become a vegetarian", a lot of the feedback for the vegan thing has come from the post I made which also explains a lot of the reasons behind the decision.
It's been somewhat surprising how positive the comments I've had about it have been so far, but *shrugs* I'm certainly not going to complain about that, even if it is bizarrely unexpected.
