Well, folks, it’s been a strange week weather-wise in my area… one the first official day of spring we had temperatures below freezing and snow. And it’s still cold! I hate the cold! If Florida wasn’t such a poor choice from a survivability perspective I’d be setting up a survival homestead down there instead of up here in Tennessee aka “The Redoubt Of The East“.
That’s one of the great things about blogging and running an online business is that you can work from anywhere that you have an internet connection. Even out in the boonies. Don’t like where you are then no problem just pack up and move.
Starting a blog is actually pretty easy in fact, I wrote an article about how to do it “How to Start a Successful Blog in 2018, Step-by-Step Beginner’s Guide” if you’re interested in doing this then that article is a good place to start.
The hardest part is getting readers and choosing a niche that isn’t overcrowded. The three main niches are dating and relationships, health and wellness, and money and finance. Choose one of those three and you’ll have an easier go of it.
Okay, now what else do I need to tell you before we get started with this weeks “what did you do to prep this week” segment…
Oh yeah, I updated my recommendations page with some new information, links, and a new photo or two.
I always get several emails each week asking what’s my favorite gear, what long-term storage food brand do I most recommend, what’s the best flashlight and so on, so I decided to put it all on one page that I can refer everyone to.
Everything on that page I own, use and recommend 100 percent. I won’t put anything on that page that I haven’t verified and personally used. And I’m always, testing, using and adding stuff to that page so check it often so that you don’t miss anything.
Oh, I almost forgot here is the direct link to the page – My Favorite Prepper Supplies, Gear, and Tools, please take a look and then come back here and tell me what you think.
And one more thing before we get started with this weeks segment – I just noticed that The Ready Store has some excellent deals going on now.
Okay, now what did I do to prep this week…
This week I’ve been taking care of my new chicks (the kind with feathers and beaks and not the kind with makeup and lipstick), unfortunately, out of 15 bought two died and one apparently has a broken hip.
This had to happen when the chick with makeup and lipstick who was working at the Tractor Supply was picking them up and putting them into the box so that I could check out and pay for them. Apparently, she didn’t realize how fragile that new chicks are and squeezed then to tightly when she was putting them into the box.
The rest is doing great and seem to get bigger every time that I go down to the garage to feed them – yes, I have them in the garage…
This week, I’ve also been out scouting some new hunting places near my house… after all turkey season starts on March 31… Oh, how excited I am. Thanksgiving in the spring.
This week, I also ordered one of these as a gift for my girlfriend because I saw it in her Amazon wish list – I just hope that she doesn’t use it to pull a Lorena Bobbitt on me. On second thought… maybe I’ll just keep it for myself and hide it when it gets here…
Okay, that’s it for me this week… what about you… what did you do to prep this week?
