How to Start Homestead Blogging When You Don’t Know Where to Start
So you want to know how to start homestead blogging? Well, my average blog posting seems to level out at one post per year. One homestead blog post a year just isn’t going to help me be at the top of the blogger food chain. I kept saying “I’m going to start blogging when I have more time”. The truth is, if we’re doing everything right (whatever THAT means), we’ll only ever have LESS time than we currently do.
1. Just Start Homestead Blogging
Just start blogging and that’s how you start homestead blogging. Pretty solid advice but, ALAS, here I am! Acting as if I have a slew of human beings who have an interest in what I have to say.

2. Decide What Your Goal Is
My main goal when I started wondering how I would start homestead blogging was to record our progress and hopefully help someone else out in my general vicinity. Honestly, it’s been so hard to find bloggers in my specific area. My hope is that the next person oblivious to the life of homesteading can find something useful out of this blog of mine.
Also, I hope to generate a source of income through homestead blogging so I can continue to work towards creating a healthier lifestyle. When you start homestead blogging, this is really going to be one of the most crucial steps when it comes to the “how-to” of it all. Remember, you don’t have to have goals of sharing your stories and writings with everyone. Homestead blogging is mainly great because you’re ultimately keeping track of what you do and learn. Looking back, I wish I would’ve started a long time ago. While we’re talking about keep track, check out this awesome garden planner I’ve been using!
3. Look for people near you
I hope that through this blog people close to us will reach out and offer their insight and knowledge. Maybe that means you’re wondering how to start homestead blogging and you’ve found this post. It could also be that you’re as oblivious at this stage as I am, and that’s okay. If I’m lucky, you’ll be able to utilize the little knowledge we have acquired thus far!
