Homesteading and Survivalism

Living a simple life

Why I Blog

Why did I open this blog? Because I wanted to. This blog is an extension of my thoughts and opinions.

For a good part of my life I have been opinionated and outspoken. This blog allows me to express my opinions to a wide range of people.

As for survivalism, I see survivalism as an extension of my everyday life. To me, my survival gear stockpile is no different then a coin collection. Just as coin collectors are always looking for that rare or unique coin that will round out the collection, I am always looking for some new skill, knowledge or survival gear addition that will round out my collection.

In 2012 my wife and I built the chicken coop and got some hens. I like sharing those experiences with people who visit my blog.

What is life? Would it be safe to say life is a sharing of experiences?

What would life be if nobody ever shared their opinions and thoughts? How lonely would that life be?

Troubling Trend in Survival Websites

Over the past year or so I have noticed a troubling trend with various based survival websites.

Those trends are sites that offer little unique content, no unique pictures, no unique videos,,, nothing but a site that tries to sell you something.

There are two types of bloggers out there

1 – someone who has first hand information on a given topic. These are the people who enjoy what they are doing, know something about the topic and can offer advice based on their first hand experience.

2 – someone who knows almost nothing on a topic, but hopes to open a website to make money.

What I am going to do is offer some tips on how you can tell a real SHTF survival site from a spam / junk site.

Are the topics diversified

Is the site focused on a couple of narrow topics? These are called niche sites.

SurvivalBoards and SurvivalistBoards are niche sites, but we discuss various topics, such as political opinions, hunting, camping, firearms, gardening,,, and so on.
