This blog, the website, the tweets, the YouTube Channel (which I have been neglecting badly) and even our Pinterest and Google+ isn’t about me tooting my own horn. It’s about sharing my journey, hopefully to inspire someone, to give a different perspective on something, but mostly to help someone avoid some of the problems that I have already encountered.
I must say that so far, I have met some really great people in the Homesteading/Prepper/Self-Sufficiency Community!! I want to give particular thanks to some of my counterparts and their pages, blogs, websites and YouTube channels. This list is by no means meant to be all inclusive of the great content creators in this category. These are just folks that have taken the time to encourage and befriend a noob like me. I must say that these folks just make this all look so effortless and easy that they definitely have my respect.
I have already shared a lot of their works through my tweets. Let’s face it, they have so much great information to share and nobody really wants to hear about me embarrassing myself in a crowded checkout line at a major retailer when I go to pull out my wallet, open it to retrieve my credit card and hay and alfalfa bits fall out and you hear lots of snickers from the people behind me in the check-out line. Though I’m sure a lot of you can relate to that.

They each offer great tips, tricks and their unique and personal perspectives on homesteading topics. I think one of the things that I enjoy most about these bloggers, the forums and Facebook groups I’m in, is that they demonstrate that there is no “wrong way” to do something and everyone is willing to share their thoughts and opinions in a positive, empowering manner sometimes even sharing self-deprecating stories…
