Though I’ve written hundreds upon hundreds of articles in my 8 years of online activity, never before have I been so nervous as I am writing this.
My name is Dan, and the reason I got in touch with Kendra is because I have a survival site where my team of writers and I, many of which are also homesteaders, post some pretty good articles… At the core, I’m a prepper, though homesteading has been a family tradition for generations… and the thing that I think that sets me part from other bloggers is the quality of the content.
I know I’m setting some pretty high standards, and that I have the huge responsibility, but I’m confident you’ll have a lot to learn from our content. Kendra created an amazing community here, through her insight and her unique way of relating to people… and it won’t be easy to fill her shoes.
I wish I could tell you an exciting and relevant story from my past, but I don’t really have any. I’m in my ’30s, and learned how to homestead from a very early age, back when I would spend summers with my grandparents on their homestead… We didn’t have modern equipment, in fact, we barely used electricity, but that was normal to us, back then there was no fancy equipment (not that we could afford, anyway) and.. you don’t know what you don’t know lol.
Anyway, I don’t want to bore you, so I’d like to continue by sharing with you the exciting plans I have for this website… which is, in essence, to introduce you to my amazing team of homesteaders that will hopefully publish at least 2 articles a week (fingers crossed for 3).
My right hand (and probably the best homesteader/farmer I ever met) is Tara Dodrill, an excellent homesteader, prepper and radio show host, who’s rocking it on a 56 acres farm in Ohio… dozens of horses, cows, goats, guineas ducks and so on… Back on my survival website, she’s given some kick-ass articles…
So I chose her to help me put together a welcome gift, to give you a taste of the kind of articles you can expect… the PDF 25 Ways to Make Homesteading EASY is available for download for free below:
(If you don’t want to subscribe to the newsletter, you can use the contact form to reach me and I’ll attach it when I reply…)
The sweet part is, I asked Tara if she could also answer your questions, and, of course, she said “Yes” 🙂
Besides her, there’re other homesteaders who will contribute, some will also reply to your comments, others won’t but… we’ll do our best. 🙂
