Before I had my own homesteading blog, I would love to read homesteading and homemaking blogs. I loved to hear their stories and learn the things I needed to know to move my homestead forward.
And even now, I love to read other people’s experiences with homesteading in blogs and see their videos on YouTube. After all, we can all learn from each other’s ups and downs.
So today, I want to share with you my favorite homesteading blogs and why I love them. I have done this for the past 3 years, but the list changes each year.
Some of the list stays the same as these bloggers only get better with experience.
Some of the list changes because people stop blogging or just don’t make the cut.
Here are the lists from the past 2 years:
And, without further ado, here is the list of this year (drumroll please). . .
