what is the daily-ish email?

Want to learn more about permaculture and homesteading and making the world a better place? This daily-ish is for you! It is written by people like you, for people like you. It's a way to learn about giveaways, get freebies, and find out about awesome threads on permies that are full of good info, and a way for you to learn permaculture and homesteading. It's full of avenues to make a better world by doing good things instead of being angry at the bad guys.



what does daily-ish mean?

We have so much stuff to share about the world of permaculture that we send out an email just about everyday in an effort to spread as much of this information as far and wide as possible. These emails are curated by a wonderful group of permies.com users and volunteers and cover all aspects of permaculture. In any given month, there will be something like 30 emails that go out, but some days will have none and other days will have three. Thus the "ish"!




free stuff!



We wish to have so many people signed up to my dailyish email that we're capable of using our strength as a group to make some serious impact on the world through permaculture. To meet this goal, Paul and the permies community are giving away tons of free stuff to folks who are signed up for the daily-ish. Immediately after signing up, you'll begin receiving free items from our community including rocket mass heater plans, videos, podcasts, ebooks and bunches of other stuff. From time to time we also give away tickets to events, online summits and conferences. Folks who are signed up to the daily-ish also have the opportunity to win books, tools, DVDs as well as other items from our online partners.

stuff we are giving away now!

Here's some of the things that we give away to folks who are signed up to our daily-ish email. These items and much more are frequently provided to you for free because you are signed up for the daily-ish emails. New free things are being added all the time.

  • Rocket Mass Heater Plans: Annex 6" L-shaped Bench by Ernie and Erica
  • The Greenhouse of the Future ebook by Francis Gendron
  • Rocket Mass Heater podcast gob
  • 6 Ways To Keep Chickens - pdf download
  • Willie Smits: Village Based Permaculture Approaches in Indonesia (video)
  • permaculture playing cards e-book download
  • Hugelkultur Micro Documentary - HD streaming
  • Common Weeds And Wild Edibles Of The World (HD video)
  • 19 skiddable structures microdoc

  • and at least 25+ more things!!!

    You can see the entire current list right here!

    stuff we might give away in the future

    We're worried that people will just unsubscribe after they get their free stuff, and well, that makes for quite a transient army for changing the world for good. Can't have that! So, if you stay signed up for the dailyish, here are some things we may be throwing your way in the near future.

  • Rocket Mass Heater Plans

  • giveaways!



    The daily-ish isn't just a way to get free goodies and awesome threads, it's the best way to find out about our giveaways! We've done so many giveaways over the years, that we've lost count, but we've hosted at least 120 giveaways!

    We've given away FOUR COPIES of each of these books and videos:

  • the fokin hoe tool that Sepp Holzer loves
  • the winner's choice for any of Paul's kickstarter products

  • Wait, it says I can subscribe for other types of emails, too? What do all those gibberish terms (Permaculture stuff, PNW stuff, Missoula stuff, and World Domination stuff) mean?

      Permaculture stuff: Paul tries to put out one new thing a day. A video, a podcast, an article, etc. Sometimes, he goes a week or two without anything new. Sometimes there's three new things in one day.

      PNW stuff: Paul finds that he travel through Oregon, Washington and Idaho a lot. If he's going to be speaking or looking for video opportunities or just coming through an area, he'll post something here. I suspect that this is something where he won't post anything for a month or two, and then put out two or three posts in a week.

      Missoula stuff: Since Paul lives in Missoula, Montana, he has stuff to announce here a couple of times per week. It might be an announcement of a presentation he will be giving, or of a new video he has about something in Missoula, or an upcoming workshop he's involved in.

      World domination stuff: Learning how to get our message out more requires us to constantly learn - so sometimes Paul will ask people "go to this website, click on X, and we'll see what happens when a bunch of us do that." While most of this sort of thing happens in the tinkering forum, some folks don't wanna check into the tinkering forum every day. So this makes for an easy way to let folks know that we are attempting to do something. I suspect that a month will pass without anything on this list - and then he'll send out one or two in a week.





    Because we like to spread permaculture and make the world a better place, we give away a lot of other free stuff without even being on the email list.

    some of Paul's articles:

  • Sepp Holzer
  • diatomaceous earth
  • cast iron skillet
  • rocket mass heater article
  • raising chickens
  • lawn care
  • flea control
  • hugelkultur
  • fluorescent light bulbs suck


  • Paul's permaculture podcasts

    Paul's permaculture videos

    these awesome forums that you're already on!

    The forums cover:

  • growing food
  • caring for animals
  • building structures
  • developing community
  • fibre arts
  • sustainable energy
  • medicinal herbs and cooking
  • managing money

  • and a whole lot more!

    Shiny button, because it's fun to push buttons!

    Some of my gobbledygook about the dailyish ....

    - we are trying to shift the dailyish away from "the paul wheaton show" and to the "permies.com community show"

    - when we used aweber, the dailyish grew by 300 to 1000 people per month.  But when we shifted to in-house stuff, growth stopped.   It has been more than five years and we are still trying to mend this.

    - I think that the dailyish is our most powerful tool for community growth and world domination

    - thanks to the people that have provided cool stuff as freebies!

    - if you have a cool thing to add to our freebies list, click here

    - while more than a dozen people have worked to get the dailyish to be amazing again, I wish to give bonus thanks to Nicole, Bill and Devaka for this most recent big leap


    If anybody spots a bump in the road, or something that might improve anything about the dailyish, please speak up!

    I checked the database. It's looking like you are signed up properly on this end. Are the daily-ish emails going into a spam folder on your end?

    I have tried to access a permies site from the daily-ish email and the site says that I do not have sufficient privileges.  I had this problem once before and R. replied to empty the cache and browsing history.  It worked then but unfortunately not today.  Any clues why?  The email and screen shot attached.
    Thanks heaps

    Ah the covid thread.

    Yeh, that was sad it went off the rails so quickly.

    The idea of it "let's hear some personal stories" was a good one, but it just devolved into a bunch of generalities and cross monologuing that it couldn't be saved and got carefully tossed on the compost pile.  

    tldr: didn't meet publishing standards and got composted.

    The link doesn't work then just takes you to log in. I am also trying to figure out how to unsubsidized since I get this email at two accounts.

    So you created two accounts.  And you wish to close one of the two accounts, right?

    I was running into this as well
    the unsubscribe link  (“to unsubscribe or fiddle with your email settings: https://permies.com/e/307915t36888274”) not actually removing my email from the daily msg list … after the link goes to modify the login and modify settings screen … I updated my preferences to exclude daily and after approximately a week the daily is still landing in my in-box.

    It’s odd …after dinking around a bit it looks like the forum login thinks I’m two different people both under the exact same email … my real account that for some reason I can’t access is Erick Miller(alias) gmail addy but when I logged in under the saved email password it didn’t display my alias or let me post here … it asked for a real sounding name …so I entered another alias under the same gmail addy (Bob Wilson) …I imagine this is part of the reason the unsubscribe isn’t working either…. But that’s just a guess

    I looked around from the back end of the software and.... you were right!  We have two accounts with the same email. That's odd!

    I can merge the two accounts for you. Would you prefer to keep your name as "Bob Wilson" or "Erick Miller" ?

    Erick Miller is the real account with all the "stuff" and unlocks
    The Bob one was the "fake" one I had to make so I could post a message... to try for a fix ... You can delete Bob or merge it whatever is most convenient

    Thanks!

    The email address and the Miller name should clue you in why Erick Miller is my screen name
