The tagline of my blog is “Prosperity In Any Economy.” However, I haven’t focused much on the “prosperity” side of homesteading, as I have on growing food, sourcing food locally, and cooking from scratch.
I have taken it for granted that the connection between these things, as well as other homesteading-related activities, and creating prosperity is rather obvious. That may not have been a wise assumption to make. After some real life, in-person conversations with people struggling with finances, I may have simply had the luxury of preaching to the choir.
So, I’m putting it out there to my readers, whether here on my blog or on my Facebook page, what kinds of financial concerns are you having?
Do you feel like the economy is improving, or getting worse? Do you feel supported in our economy, or hindered by it? Are you concerned about job security? Have you done a household budget? (Are you nervous about doing one?) Do you have a favorite money-saving DIY project or tip? Is there anything else weighing on your mind about the economy, debt, or income?
Something I believe that is important in moving forward in 2013 with this blog is to rectify my assumption that the connection between homesteading and prosperity is obvious. My wish for each of you is a healthy, happy, and prosperous life. I look forward to reading your comments!
