Best Off-Grid and Homesteading Blogs for 2019
As more people warm up to the idea of becoming more self-sufficient, interest in homesteading and off-grid living continues to grow. From canning your own fruits and vegetables, to building an off-grid sanctuary in the wilderness, there is a lot of information to be had in the vast oceans of the internet.
Here are a few of the best off-grid and homesteading blogs for every phase of self-sufficiency.
Off-Grid World has a little something for everyone. Gardening tips to survival preparedness and everything in between. With the huge range of topics, you’re sure to find something new and interesting, no matter your level of experience.
If you’re like most budding homesteaders, your goal is likely not to build an off-grid doomsday bunker, but instead to simply become more self-sufficient at home. Homestead Wishing is a great blog to show you how to get started.
Little House Living
This is a really cute blog with a plethora of recipes and DIY projects.
But one of the things we love most about it is the Frugal Living section. Besides the standard DIY tips you can expect to find, this blog provides a lot of other practical tips for saving money, as well as making money from home.
The Homesteading Hippy
This blog follows the successes and difficulties of Jesse & Alyssa as they build their dream home on a beautiful 5-acre plot of land. Unlike most other homesteading blogs, this one is focused on construction tips and techniques. Although they haven’t updated the site in a while, there is a lot of really great information here for anyone looking to follow a similar path.
If you’ve ever dreamt of buying a rural plot of land, and building your own off-grid home, this is a site you’ll want to check out.
Washington’s Last Frontier
While this blog is not likely to show up on too many “best off-grid blog” lists (yet!), I believe that it will be one of the best to follow moving forward. The blog owner, Tiffany, and her husband are slowly and methodically working their way towards off-grid self-sufficiency.
Currently, the blog has information about their current preparations – as well as recipes and gift idea lists for outdoorsy types. But there are also a couple of more recent posts about the rural land they recently bought. Expect that moving forward there will be a lot more in-depth documentation of their journey as they are able to develop and eventually live on the land.
