I recently joined the permies.com forums and have posted my introduction here, and would love to make some connections with other like-minded folks, as time allows us.

I thought that since I've only just introduced myself so far, I'd also share something that I did a few years ago, when I was writing for an online eco-conscious/green lifestyle publication that is now defunct. I republished the article last year on another very interesting and experimental crypto-oriented site called Steemit (anyone else heard of it?).

I've had interest in permaculture for many years, and wrote this article: https://steemit.com/permaculture/@lkisaid/permaculture-primer in an effort to distill some of my own understanding, and make some permaculture concepts a little more understandable to those who aren't already avid enthusiasts!

But I'd still love some feedback and critique from anyone here that would like to offer it! I'd like to expand on the article and find other ways to monetize it (please let me know if you have any ideas there as well), as I'm really not very active on Steemit and would rather put it on my own personal website or something.

Hi Evan, you write well and the photos and illustration are quite nice.  I think the article does a great job at introducing permaculture to people who are unfamiliar with it.

I don't know how best to monetize article writing and I'm looking for ways to do that myself.  I've got a Patreon account with no content yet, but I plan to figure out how best to use it.  

Where are you located?

Thanks for the feedback Timothy! I have a Patreon set up for a podcast project (not permaculture related) that I've been doing as well, and have been thinking that may be a good way to bring a few different things together, both for community building and funding.

I'm in Michigan myself. Nice to "meet" you here!
