Thanks for the interesting feedback, Paul. Countryside magazine, like
Mother Earth News, Country Journal, Horticulture, Fine Gardening, and
Harrowsmith were all excellent but few survived.
I am beginning to see that there is a real need for good forums for
market farmers, homesteaders, permaculturists, gardeners and small
and large diversified family farms, so it is good to find the worthwhile
resources in those that exist for the benefit of people in those groups.
It will probably be worthwhile to tap the resources in this pc list,
permies homessteading forum and Homesteading Today to
find what you need and find out what others are doing as homesteaders.
One thing for sure is that at permies, HT and here you will find scores
of links to fascinating, valuable resources across the Web, especially
blogs. Folks seem to like blogs for a web presence for their homestead,
market farm, shop, crafts, cooking and farm. They fill them with long
essays, galleries of pictures and videos. Google's array of apps
offerings to bloggers are extensive, colorful, useful, integrated and
interactive. It is amazing what you will find. For a good example see:
down home at The Hennery
custom search engines
blog search engines
adsense & monetize (you can derive a monthly income from Google ads)
and much more
