What happens when you write book reviews on permies!!!
The story of how permies gave me an opportunity, I shared something back to permies, and this online polyculture grows

Well I don't really know how to put it. Lets start from the beginning, some months ago I posted a review of Growing Green on permies book forum. Burra, our Mother Tree, sent it to the vegan organic network facebook page and they liked it and we discussed there some issues. I then subscribed to Growing green international magazine, and wrote to the editors that I post book reviews on permies, and sent an example of my reviews linking my one of Growing Green book.

They liked it and in the next issue they would like to publish something from my review
with some discussion on issues specific to stockfree organic standards with a link to the full review here on permies!!

Wow! I'm really happy, it all just started as a hobbyish sort of thing, then grew bigger and my commitment to the book review grid became stronger, since I'm a book geek that was my natural space.

How much time would it take of my life to make this a residual income stream? Even just getting free books?
Really Happy!!! I don't usually let myself go like this but smiling is nice and sharing smiles is even better

Anyone else have a story like this to share?

I believe we cross some opportunities we couldn't even imagine, sometimes its up to us to grab them and make them grow!
Who knows what will be of all this in the next future, its worth trying!

Thought it was great news and wanted to share it here.
