It would appear that you have found your passion and are living it. Without you, there would not be any videos, pod cast, articles, forum, etc. You are the one sitting at the computer, hour after hour (with your heated keyboard) making things happen. You, with all your faults, are doing something. I, for one, appreciate what you have done, what you doing and what you are going to do. HOWEVER,
With that said, it may be your purpose to inspire people with the same passion to help promote permaculture. Other people with the same passion may be better than you in certain areas- videos, podcasting, articles, etc. The question is are they willing help and can you turn loose of your - baby.

So apparently, my overalls have superpowers: it keeps the nitwits away. When living my life to full enjoyment, I have great humor needs. And part of that is that certain words make me giggle. And a big part of the giggle comes from nitwits flinching at words. Life is so delicious. My articles are aimed at a broad audience - no profanity. My podcasts are for those people that are "my peeps" and I wish to keep the nitwits away.

My last experience with becoming a public entitlement:
I work in a pretty typical corporate office/factory. A few years ago I came across a great deal to buy some chocolates for free (exploiting a good coupon deal) - and I bought mounds of chocolates for the office (100 pounds or so!). So I put out chocolates and the response timeline went something like:
month 1: Yay - chocolates - we LOVE chocolates!
month 2: Can you get a different kind of chocolates, I'm tired of this kind
month 3: Why can't you put out something healthy instead of chocolates!
month 4: Hey, where are MY chocolates??
I have been following you lately, and try to do sustainable farming here, in Virginia. I am a lover of the English language, also, and have been an amateur poet for years. May I respectfully ask you to forego the F word in your communications? You are skilled in speaking, and I know that you can do it, easily...
From a fan. I'm still laughing.
