Hello Steemit Community! Introducing Wild Homesteading

_DSC1416.jpg

Hello Steemit! My name is Daron and along with my wife I run a blog called Wild Homesteading. The blog is relatively new - just been up and running for a couple months.

Wild Homesteading is all about helping you to start your homestead and grow your own food by working with nature.

Most of my posts are "how to" articles focused on a specific topic. Though sometimes I mix it up a bit.

But here on Steemit I'm hoping to connect with you all and while I do plan on sharing my posts once a week I want most of my posts to focus on sharing what I'm doing on my own homestead. I'm really hoping to find other homesteaders here on Steemit! :)

My Homestead - The Wild Ride Homestead

native-plants-and-non-native-plants-mixed.jpg

My wife, son and I live on what we call the Wild Ride Homestead. With just under 3 acres it is not a big homestead but after living here for 2 years we just love it.

The picture up above is a hedgerow I have been growing for privacy and wild life habitat. It has a fun mix of native and non-native plants - some are edible!

Part of what I want to share with you all are the projects I'm working on each week. There is always a lot to do as a homesteader and I'm hoping you all will enjoy getting a sneak peak into my life as a homesteader.

The Blog - Wild Homesteading

someting-to-love-about-homesteading.jpg

I already talked a bit about the blog but here is a bit more about when I post and where else you can connect with me.

Each week on Monday I publish a new blog post. I'm planning on sharing a summary or a related side story here on Steemit that goes along with the blog post. The blog post will link to my post here on Steemit.

I need to go back through all my old posts but each will eventually link to a related post here on Steemit.

My homepage will also link to my profile page here on Steemit. I want my site to promote Steemit and I'm hoping Steemit can help people find my site.

As far as other social media sites go you can find me at Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest plus over at the forums at Permies.com.

I will be linking back to this Steemit post from those sites asap.

Example Blog Post - 5 Ways Your Homestead Will Benefit from Native Plants

native-big-leaf-lupine-flower.jpg

This week my newest blog post is all about native plants and how they can benefit your homestead. If you are interested in it please feel free to check it out.

That post is a good example of what you can expect from my site :)

Thank You All!

I'm new to Steemit but been hearing a lot about it so I'm very excited to finally get to be a part of this community.

I want to hear from you all but I would love to hear from any of my fellow homesteaders. From what I have heard it sounds like there is already a nice homesteading community on here.

So thank you all for taking the time to read this post and please forgive me if I'm making any errors and for any errors I may make as I get used to posting here.

Can't wait to start connecting with you all!

Thanks again!

Welcome to Steem, @wildhomesteading, and thank you for this amazing intro post!
I was gonna jump right in and list all the cool permaculture and homesteading connections, but @nateonsteemit has already done that way better than I would have. So I can only second him: go ahead and check them all out. Discord is a fantastic place to start. You can chat with people right away, who can help you out with the rest. Oh yes, and most importantly: don't lose your password!!! As for the RC, don't worry... as soon as the first payoffs start coming in you'll have more SP and you'll be able to post to your heart's delight.

·

Thank you! :)

If you use wordpress for your blog check out Steempress which easily allows posts on your blog directly to steemit. I'm sorry I don't know more as I don't have my own blog, but it shouldn't take you long to find it and how to use it.

@goldendawne is active in the homesteading community on the platform and can get you pointed in the right direction if your looking to network.

·

Thanks for the info! :)

·
·

No problem. Its also worth checking out the esteem or partiko apps and the steempeaks.com or busy.org sites as well for interactions on Steem as those sites and apps give you notifications for upvotes, replies, when your tagged in posts/comments, upvotes, etc. Really useful when youre trying to keep track of everything going on.

Thanks! I installed partiko on my phone but I still need to get it setup. It will be great to be able to use my phone to access Steemit. I will check out those other 2 sites. Thanks again!

Hello Daron, welcome to Steem! :-)
I saw your complaint on #help channel on Steem.Chat
I'm delegating you temporarily 15 more SP, so you would have more Resource Credits for interaction (and faster replenish rate).
Good luck!

·

Thank you so much! I did not know about the limits in regards to resource credits. With the SP you delegated I was able to get my post up. Thank you again!

·
·

I see you were already out of resource credits again. I delegated you 50 SP you should be able to do a more normal amount of commenting/replying now :)

·
·
·

Thank you so much! It is interesting how quickly it goes away. Just trying to respond to comments and do a blog post each day. But each action chips away. All the guides recommend doing that sort of thing (responding to comments, etc.) but as a new user it is hard to be even that active. Thank you again so much - you and the rest of the community here are awesome!

·
·
·
·

Yeah you should have a little more leeway now with the amount of SP you have, but a new user with 15 SP has to treat every comment they make like gold :) The resource credit economy has actually helped a great deal in making spambots less profitable here on Steem, overall levels of robo-auto-spam-posting have decreased greatly. The tradeoff is newer accounts are limited, but I think in general the community at large does a good job of looking out for promising new users and delegating some SP so they can interact. Cheers

·
·

Man, new user troubles, huh? I'll bless you with a gift to power up as a way of getting you off to a better start.

·
·
·

Thank you! Really appreciate it!

·
·
·
·

NO problem!

·

Gandalf the Great, more like it :) You rock!

Welcome to steemit, and way to get out there and start commenting. That'll go a long way in getting noticed. I'll have to mention you to @freedompoint, as I think he'll dig your stuff too!

·

Thank you! Really appreciate it!

·
·

Hey! I am here...and I do! I love seeing new creators and new information!

https://busy.org/@sndbox/that-s-steempress-ive-discovering-new-blogs-steempress-contest-8

Sorry for spamming your comments, just thought this might be a good contest for you to enter and help get the word out about your site.

·

Thanks! I will take a look.

Welcome to Steem, not homesteader but I wish, fellow Nature lover though and yes there is a solid homesteading group around :) I'm pretty sure you'll get to know each other in no time. Have fun and best regards. Welcome onboard!

·

Thank you! :) Great to hear about the homesteading community!

I have a garden and you are awesome and more people should homestead like you.

·

Thank you! and it is great that you have a garden - a big reason I started my site was to help people grow their own food. I always like hearing that people are gardening :)

·
·

Some people think gardening is only a hobby but it is truly more than just that. There are so many reasons to garden. Some people may not see the need or the problem in not gardening. But garden food tastes so much better, for example.

·
·
·

Fully agree :)

Welcome to Steemit! I hope you find what you are looking for.@nateonsteemit mentioned that my wife and I founded Global Homestead Collective. We would love fod you to join with more self reliant individuals. Be well.


Global Homestead Collective Come join us on discord! https://discord.gg/hPJs5Rb

·

Thank you! I will check it out!

·
·

LOL - I see he already found you, and so did @nateonsteemit. Man, you're attracting everyone!

·
·
·

We're all here!

Something something community mumble mumble ;)

Ah, a permie!

Howdy! I'm Nate. I like to meet and greet new homesteady steemians. I would have been here sooner if you'd used the #permaculture tag. On most steem interfaces, you're allowed five tags, it increases your reach to use them ;)

Welcome, welcome, welcome to steem! There's a bunch of permies and homesteaders here and quite a few communities to get involved in. For starters, there's @sagescrub (creator of @homesteaderscoop and Homesteaders Co-op our community marketplace for sustainable permaculture goods in exchange for Steem, SBD, and USD), @riverflows, creator of @naturalmedicine and the Natural Medicine discord server, @freedompoint and @freedomtowrite, creators of @ghscollective and the Global Homesteading Collective discord server, @porters, @walkerland, @goldendawne (who is responsible for me finding this post. Thanks again 😊), @mountainjewel, @makinstuff, @pennsif, our guy that knows the most about steem, @papa-pepper, @goldenoakfarm, @senorcoconut, @belleamie, and @ligayagardener, just to start you off with a few. Oh, and @stortebeker!

Most of the steem communities rally in discord servers, so if you're looking to get involved with community (and who on steem isn't?) then discord is your friend. On discord, you'll find @ginabot is an immensely helpful service that will send you notifications of comments, token transfers, mentions, and many other activities on chain via concise messages. Most steemians that I know use her because she works so well.

Depending on what you're wanting to do here, there's many interfaces. My personal favorite is SteeemPeak, but there's also steepshot, partiko, steemit, dtube, appics, and many others. These interfaces are often also called dapps. You log into them using your private posting key, which you can find in your wallet under the "permissions" tab. There's lots of dapps already, and will be lots more as we grow! Also, don't lose your password or you'll have to start all over like I did.

I look forward to seeing you around the chain and communities! There's a lot to learn here, but I hope this comment and the support you're gonna get from our communities will help.

·

Wow Nate, this is awesome! It's a lot of info to digest @wildhomesteasing but don't worry you'll get it... its just another learning process!

Oh no @Nateonsteemit, I had no idea you lost your password once... that's a drag. How far along were you in building your page?

Don't lose your password I have mine in 4 or 5 different places (not online unless you know a secured way to do it)!

·
·

There is now steem keychain. I have not tried it just yet but I trust @yabapmatt and it seems it is respected by the steem community. https://steemit.com/steem/@yabapmatt/hate-putting-private-keys-into-websites-introducing-steem-keychain

·
·
·

Ah interesting. I may explore this a little!

·

Hello and thank you! I was hoping to find some permies on here! That info is great and I really appreciate it - good to know about the permaculture tag! I will start using it in the future for some of my posts. Thanks again!

·

Definitely don't lose your password. I did that on my first account before I even got to make a post. Luckily, that account still exists and keeps a good name reserved

Hi Daron, great introduction and welcome to Steem! Homesteading is unfortunately not my expertise, but I'm sure you'll find a couple of like-minded people here. Is your blog running on wordpress? If you consider the option to cross-post the same blog entries to your blog and to Steem, you might want to look into steempress / @steempress. I haven't used it myself, but know a couple of people who regularly use it - and steempress may give a nice vote on top from time to time :)

·

Hello! Thank you for the welcome and yup my blog is running on wordpress. Thanks for that great tip - I will check it out :)

Welcome to Steem. Looking forward to your homesteading posts.

Hello Daron and welcome to steemit... if you're looking to meet other homesteaders on this platform, you will be well served! It is true that there are a lot of us here. I say this but maybe we kind of find eachother and there are also a lot of many different types of people here 😁.

What you will find for sure is that there isn't very much useless arguing and thoughtless interactions. In general steemians are willing to help one another grow, and learn.

It's been a very good place for me, very inspiring.

Thank you for the info and the comment! :)

I really enjoyed your introduction Daron! I love "wild" styles of gardening and homesteading that embrace nature being messy and not working in straight lines or monocultures. Appreciating seeing cal poppies and elderberry in your hedgerow :) Couldn't make out the rest. Your blog effort sounds very worthwhile! I wish you lots of luck in your new project/business. And welcome to steem!

Thank you! :)

Welcome dude. I love farming and homesteading. My forefathers all farmed, but I'm a suburbs guy
😢

Posted using Partiko Android

·

Thank you! There is a lot you can grow in the suburbs depending on the size of your yard. I write about homesteading but a lot of what I'm suggesting people do would work in the suburbs too.

Welcome to Steem. Nice introduction post! I believe there are plenty of homesteaders around! If you don't find them, they'll surely find you! :-)

I've found your post because @zorank featured it on his entry for the Pay It Forward Contest
