I mentioned in yesterdays “What did you do to prep this week” post that some of you had asked that I set-up an automatic “subscription service” where they could sign-up to automatically send $5.00 per month in support of The Survivalist and what we do here.

Please note that all subscriptions are voluntary and can be canceled at anytime.

If you think that the information and community here on The Survivalist are worth $5.00 per month then use the button below to show your support…

Glad to subscribe. You share a lot of information with us. Thanks.

Agreed. Small cost for good info. Just subscribed too.

For what purposes does the money go?

M.D. Creekmore April 29, 2013 at 11:28 am


Really, where the money goes isn’t really any of your concern if you haven’t subscribed… subscriptions are voluntary and can be canceled at anytime. And several readers had asked that I provide this option for them, so I did…

The Survivalist and my books are my full-time home business and income – I make a living (financially) by helping readers and by providing a site for everyone, including readers who use the site for information and community but contribute nothing in the way of financial support.

So far less than ten people have subscribed… and I figure it will top out at about 15-20. I could make more money working for $7.50 an hour than I do with the blog.

For the first few years I actually paid out more in hosting fees and related stuff than the site earned.

So don’t worry, I’m not getting rich from the site and my thousands of hours of work and effort over the past 7+ years I’ve been running this site – if you figure the hours and the income I’ve probably made less than a buck an hour…

kudos to you for making a living with a home business and site / blog. If people like the product, it doesn’t matter where the money goes. If you get rich off it – good for you :-).

Agree with others. Hope everyone appreciates the enormous amount of time, cost and effort involved with maintaining this website. I would be floundering out in a sea of prepping info. If not for this website and all the informative post. Thank you M.D. and all the Wolf Pack.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Add Thomas to your list Sir.

Linda Lou April 29, 2013 at 8:10 pm

I will join. You are a very good value for all the info we get. What you do with the money is your business. Probably will cost a lot of time to put the monthly charges through the credit cards. God bless, and many thanks, Linda Lou

Done. My family and I appreciate your efforts more than you know.

Virtual appreciation party just for you……..
Fist pumping*****YOU RAWK MD!****** Wooo Hooo!
One hundred camo colored ballons (biodegradable of course) with your logo are released in your honor! Streamers flying. Cannons roaring! Girls dancing. The smell of some good dang bbq. Endless ice cold beer. I hundred side dishes on endless tables. Water fights.
My crazy imagination parties all by itself. Hehe

I know how you feel working so hard for no compensation. I have been doing that for years with Co-op farming (teaching people to grow, can and butcher).
Knowing that dozens of families have the skills to survive and to help others is enough for us. We didn’t make even a dollar an hour. We paid out of our pocket. We also give field trips for schools and scouts.
If our people taught at least one or two other families what we taught them, then it was well worth it. It was worth it to teach a little boy who thought that dairy cows lived in the back of the grocery store.

Thank you for hanging in there. I hope this helps.
Whoo Hoo! (couldn’t resist. wink)

Thank you…

That’s the first time I’ve had anyone do a cheer for what we do here. I’m impressed!
