Welcome back to another week of Homestead Helps! I am completely blown away by the response and the wonderful posts added each week. Thank you all for joining us!
The number one visited post last week was How to Get Started Homesteading: The First Steps by Kelly over at The Morris Tribe. Kelly gives some great, easy-to-follow advice!
Many of you also wandered over to Patchwork Radicals’ post Why Homemaking, an interesting article that reminds us that although our homes and homesteads look very different on the surface, our hearts are more similar than we might think.
Last but not least, a Blossoming Life’s DIY Beauty for Pennies was also a favorite. After checking out those recipes, I’m sure many of us will be skipping the beauty aisle form now on!
It is near impossible for me to choose just a few posts to feature. I let your hopping decide for me! Make sure you visit your favorites and come back and “like” them so I can feature them next week!
What is Homestead Helps Wednesday Homestead Hop?
Homestead Helps is about helping each other consume less, produce more, and live simply. Posts about gardening (both in the ground or in containers), preserving the harvest, raising animals, frugal living, cooking from scratch, textile arts like sewing or knitting, recycling, repurposing, and upcycling, homemaking and home management are all welcome and appreciated! Did you just harvest your first tomato? We’d love to hear about it! New chicks? Don’t forget the pictures! Did you learn the best way not to do something? Share that, too! Do you grow your own groceries from the balcony of your condo? Show us how! I think you get the idea.
Create a “Homestead Helps” post on your own blog. Then come back here to add your post to the linky box below. Please, link to specific posts and not to your blog’s home page.
Each week, I’ll choose a post or two to feature during the next week’s link-up.
Don’t have a blog? Feel free to add a comment here with helpful homesteading stories and tips!
Now for just a few simple guidelines to make sure this is a useful and enjoyable experience for everyone:
1. Please, remember that this is a family-friendly site. No inappropriate content, please!
2. Please, link your posts back to this one. This is a common blog hop courtesy and helps build our online homesteading community. When your readers hop back here, they can read the other participants’ post, too. We all end up sharing with, learning from, and helping each other.
3. Please, visit a few of the other links. This is another common blog hop courtesy. While you’re visiting, be sure to leave a comment, letting the blog owner know you stopped by and come back here to “like” your favorites. Just because many of us wouldn’t mind living in a barn, me included, doesn’t mean we have to act like we were born in one.
4. No advertising-oriented posts. This hop is for sharing useful information, not free advertising. So, keep your links to posts involving homesteading and home management topics
Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to come back and visit a few posts!
Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
