Hello everyone. I have been on the homestead path for 10 years now and I am starting to blog and vlog about the adventure. I could really use some help for content ideas. Please share as much as you can think to. I want to write some quality articles focused on common ground the majority of us might have. My ultimate goal is to someday to overcome the last obstacle for me which is income from the homestead. I hope to eventually have enough subscribers to draw in sponsors.

I would like to hear from everyone who is, was, and wants to homestead.

Please tell me about your problems, fears, worries, anxiety, fustrations, wants, aspirations, needs, and desires.


Thank you!

I think the thing that most people want to know is details about your transition to the land, and how you began and initiated all your projects.  Give details that you think are unique about your own observations and experiences.  Talk about your failures and how you learned from them, as well as celebrating your successes while detailing the process that got you there.  The devil is in the details, but the more you explain no matter about what it is, the less likely that someone else will be making mistakes.  Create a base of knowledge that others can readily access, and don't overburden them with too much wind up and wind down if you are in video format, get to the point that you want to express.  Enjoy it.

That's a good point. It is easy to forget not everyone knows the basics and the transition process from "normal" life to homesteader.

I see no one want to read this post perhaps I should have titled it differently..

If I were you I would look for people asking questions on these forums and try to provide good full answers to those questions. If you see a question that is asked multiple times that would be a great one to make a blog post about that answers it and perhaps shares some of your experience on your homestead.

If you look around at the threads on here you will find tons of them where someone is posting a question seeking answers. Even if the question was already answered you could still write your answer to it as a blog post. There are a ton of potential content ideas in those question threads.

There are over a million visitors to this site monthly. So getting a good reputation here answering questions could help you attract visitors to your site. You can add a signature in your profile and link back to your blog.

You can also share you blog posts on here as long as you provide some real value here too and not just a link.

Promote your site for free on permies: https://permies.com/t/20020/Promoting-Stuff-Permies-FREE

Nothing wrong with asking for ideas on here too but you will find a ton of ideas just by digging into all the threads already posted.
 
Listen. That's my theme music. That's how I know I'm a super hero. That, and this tiny ad told me:
