Third Half - Blog Recommendation

Welcome,

I would like to recommend a blog to you. The blog is "Casaubon's Book" by Sharon Astyk. She has been posting for about four years.

In those four years, she has proved many posts on her thoughts about peak-oil. Her posts have practical advice for living with less energy and other things too.


You may be wondering about my emphasizing peak-oil.

I believe the "Make-do," we need to "Prepare Now!" for future emergencies, and the "we can survive this" are important attributes for everyone that are preparing for emergencies.

Second Half - Blog Recommendations

Welcome,

I would like to recommend a blog to you. The blog is "The Simple Dollar" by Trent Hamm. He has been posting for about two years.

In those two years, he has provided many posts on personal financial matters. His posts have practical advice for all of us. Don't believe me; check out The Simple Dollar's archive.


You may be wondering about my emphasis on finances.

Like I said, I believe that we as a nation are in the beginning of a major financial crisis. A crisis that has the potential for changing the way this country has used money for the last 50 years.

And those changes, I believe, can be mitigated by taking The Simple Dollar's advice.

Week Seventeen - Blog Recommendation


Welcome,

I would like to recommend a blog to you. The blog is "Safely Gathered In" by Abs and Hannah. They have been posting for about five months.

In those five months, they have provided many posts on obtaining, storing, and using food storage. Their posts have informative pictures and great details about using basic foods to provide for their family and friends during good and bad times.


You may be wondering why my emphasis on storing and using food storage.

I believe that we, as a nation, are in the beginning of a major financial crisis. A financial crisis that has the potential to be long and devastating. I also believe that neither of the major political parties have the will power/political clout to properly correct the many financial situations.

No matter, whether we get socialism or fascism, our families will need to eat. Abs and Hannah provide a great blog to help us survive those coming troubles.
