What would help you on your homesteading / permaculture adventure? I'm starting a new blog and I want to write blog posts that provide the most value to you all. While I can't write on every topic I can do interviews to fill the gap.

Please only use one apple per topic - feel free to vote for more than one topic.

Thank you all!

My own homestead farm has incorporated all those topics except guilds. Part of my own success involved a few other topics that I feel are important.....at least they were for me.
...establishing a local bartering system in the community
...taking advantage of diverse small income sources
...utilizing local resources. In my case, I'm referring to green waste, deadwood, livestock manures, stable clean out waste, fruit tree waste, wild bamboo, excess forest duff, rock and gravel, clean fill -- all obtained free and with permission of the land owners.
...developing resources on one's own land -- utilizing "waste" or unused land for growing biomass crops, growing saplings for poles, etc.
...guerilla gardening.

Here's a wish that you'll enjoy doing your blog. Let me know the address so that I can visit and glean a few tips it's to bring back to my own homestead. Thanks.

Daron, where is your new blog?  (I'm assuming https://permies.com/t/63317/permaculture-projects/Introducing-Wild-Ride-Farm-lots is your old blog.)
