In February I was approached about applying for a program Ford Motor Company was launching called the Fiesta Movement. They were offering a fuel-efficicent car with all expenses paid (gas, insurance, various travel costs) in exchange for authentic video content and social media posts about the experience. After considering the opportunity and what it would mean for Eco-Vegan Gal, I realized it could help me generate more fun, fresh and inspirational content, so I sent in an audition video. While waiting for the outcome I became more and more excited about it, imagining all the adventures I could capture and share with you, which was quite nerve racking as I found out over 5,000 people had applied! Fortunately, I found out in May that I was accepted amongst a group of incredible YouTubers, and I was exstatic!

YAHOO!!! Finally, right?!
This a soft launch or beta version of the site, so please keep in mind this is a work in progress. Though, I'll probably always consider it one. Yeah, I'm a perfectionist... Take a look around and get a feel for the new look (big change from the old site isn't it?!). Please leave comments on this post to let me know what you think. I would absolutely love any constructive criticism you have. Be honest, but keep in mind there's a lot that goes into web design and some changes might not be possible at this time (unless I receive some generous tips!).
