Top three blogs
Are you looking for some more blogs to
follow? I read over fifty, ranging from personal odysseys to
nonprofit newsletters, but only a few are so rivetting I want to share
them. These top three blogs are my personal picks based on:
posting frequently enough to keep me hooked, mixing personal and
informational in a fun proportion, and either being beautiful or well
written (or both.)
Causabon's Book is probably the blog I
discuss the most at the dinner table. Sharon Astyk is a Jewish
homesteader and peak oil writer who sucks you in with her tales of
family life and simple living but adds plenty of meat about how to
store your food and prepare for the end of civilization. Her
posts are thought provoking and mirror my own world while also veering
off in other directions. (She used to write over on her personal blog, but is mostly writing at
the link above.)
Sugar Mountain Farm is "stories from a small
farm in Vermont's mountains raising pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks, dogs
and kids naturally on pasture." I started reading because we're
contemplating running pigs on pasture some day, but I kept reading
because Walter's photos were astounding --- really the best I've seen
on any blog. It's also fun to read about someone running a
successful small farm.
Not Exactly Rocket Science is a new favorite,
interpreting new scientific discoveries into layman's terms. This
isn't precisely homesteading, but you need to know the science to make
it all work!
