Looking for some non-religious homesteading-type blogs

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Everything I'm finding is very Christian based and we're not into that at all. I just want to read about another family sharing their homesteading (natural food, gardening, frugal living) experiences without all the religious talk.

There has to be one out there, right? Can anyone point me in the direction of a good one?

I really love Farm Mama. http://farmama.typepad.com/farmama/ 

 

I couldn't swear that she never says anything about religious things (I honestly don't remember) but her blog is wonderful and very focused on their farm and family activities. It's my favorite blog.

I've spent the last 15 minutes reading over Farmama and it's great.

I'm not looking for anti-religion blogs, just some that don't have their religious beliefs as a driving force behind the blog.

I totally get that, Garden Stream. I'm an atheist, and yeah, it's a bit off-putting when every other post is about religion, when all you want to read about is farming!

 

I also like SouleMama. They are starting up a little farm, and the blog is beautiful. I covet their "new" house.

Mine! We just started homesteading in August but I have a ton of posts including the merged stuff from my old blog (Rose Cottage). I'm Atheist so no religious chatter.

My in-laws live in the Valley so it will be nice to see something "local" :)

Oh I love Farm Mama!  I also enjoy my friend Laura's blog - http://gettingthere.typepad.com  and I keep a blog as well - http://trinityacres.wordpress.com.  Now before you start wondering about the name "Trinity Acres", I'll let you know it's named for my three children, my own little trinity, and has nothing to do with religion.  We are not on a religious path :)

I loved Sharon Astyk's "Independence days", so I looked up her blog as well.  I haven't been reading it long, but so far not mch religious influence.  her family is jewish, and it does creep in there some, but the resources are really good I've found, especially food preservation.

Me too. These animals need to start paying for their feed! The eggs are so small, I can't wait to see tiny quail wobbling around in the incubator.

I'm trying for it myself and blog a bit.... but haven't for a few months. Been busy! Plan to start up again. I have several links on the right bar of different blogs I like to read, and I'm with you on the religious stuff. It's off-putting to me, being an agnostic myself, so the blogs I tend towards are not religious by nature.

Thank you so much to everyone that has replied. You make me feel so much better and not quite so abnormal!

I keep a blog that isn't Christian, eastmillcreek.blogspot.com. Come check me out! We are homesteading in northern California on the Lost Coast. I'm into permaculture. The blog is sometimes a bit focused on our family, but I try to keep it to sustainable living topics of interest.

Just wanted to pop in and put ourselves out there too....we're at http://darkstarfarm.wordpress.com .  We're currently building our off-the-grid home, so probably less gardening/preserving this year and more building but I try to keep a good mix off all we do plus family stuff.  Plus, this week I'll be doing my first give-away!  So excited!

 

PS:  Thanks everyone for the great blog links....I love, love, love reading other's experiences and getting great inspiration!  joy.gif
