Effective November 1, I’m cutting back the number of posts published here from four a week to three a week. I’ll post on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. That means you won’t notice the change until next week because there will be a Friday and Saturday post as usual this week.
Why am I cutting back?
I’ve had to make some adjustments in my personal life lately which I won’t bore you with here. It’s just getting harder to keep up with everything, and I need to relieve some of the pressure that’s involved with writing for DestinySurvival and doing DestinySurvival Radio.
Obviously, the need for prepping info isn’t going away. Far from it.
If you’ve been paying attention at all to what’s going on in the world, you know there’s a tremendous need for good content on how to be prepared and face what’s coming economically and politically. While I pass along a few thoughts now and then that may be relevant for our time, DestinySurvival has never been a current events site. Near the bottom of the sidebar are links to a couple of other sites for that. And you likely have your own favorite news sources anyway.
I’ve no doubt missed opportunities to be timely when it comes to writing about prepping for natural disasters, such as “Frankenstorm” Sandy this week. However, Saturday I did e-mail “DestinySurvival Dispatch” subscribers with links to previous posts here on hurricane preparedness. My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by Sandy and its remnants.
But if you’ve got even a little bit of the prepping mindset within, you don’t wait until the last minute to buy what you need or make the necessary preparations for such events. I don’t understand why companies push hurricane preps in the middle of the storm. It’s too late for the people who aren’t ready. And it makes more sense to me to reach those who need to be prepared once they’ve seen the storm’s aftermath.
And when it comes to holidays, I haven’t been one to capitalize there either. Oh, sure, holidays are coming up, and I hope you’ll buy preparedness related gifts for others. Plenty of the companies featured here will be happy to accommodate you. But people don’t associate holidays with prepping and survival, so I don’t hype the holidays.
It’s my hope that you’ll consider DestinySurvival as one of the trusted resources you look to any time of the year. Earthquakes–whether real or those of the economic and political kind–don’t have regard for the calendar.
Believe me, cutting back on the number of times I post doesn’t mean I’m running out of ideas for things to write about. Hundreds of ideas for posts sit in folders on my computer. So I’ll keep posting, just not quite as often.
Also, I invite you to check out the Prep Mart pages, Amazon Pick pages and the items you find on the sidebar because things change in those places from time to time. And if you haven’t subscribed to the “DestinySurvival Dispatch,” “DestinySurvival Today,” or the “Special Offers Club,” you’re welcome to do so. They’re all free.
As of November 17th, DestinySurvival will celebrate five years of bringing you info about products and services for survival and preparedness. And I try to throw in a few other tidbits you might not find elsewhere.
I’ve got a lot of great readers, and the number is growing. I’m glad you’re among them today. Your support keeps this site going and means more than you can know.
It’s always a thrill, too, when advertisers and guest writers contact me, wanting to have a part in this site rather than me soliciting them.
Operating DestinySurvival has been an interesting adventure. And I’m sure it’s not over by a long shot.
By the way, if you want to offer feedback, write a guest post, be on DestinySurvival Radio, or whatever, feel free to get in touch through the Contact tab above.
Having said all that, remember that less is more when you’re prepping. Have a great day…And keep prepping!
