Lately, I have been trying to soak up all the information I can. I have discovered three sources of information on the Internet. Youtube, Preparedness Radio Network on Blogtalkradio and Blogtv.
Youtube is the oldest of the three. And if you are a visual learner, like me, this is a great resource. I have found that I can go to Youtube and search for almost anything and learn something on the subject. Of course, the information is only as good as the informant. You can run across some weird things there, but there is good information to be found. My washer was not working properly and I searched for a video and was able to keep it going.
Check out my channel for a couple of videos. More to come when the weather breaks.

Another good resource is the Preparedness Radio Network on Blogtalkradio. Show after show of information to help you prepare, homestead, etc. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/doctorprepper
I have listened to shows on gardening, food storage...you name it. I highly recommend it.
If you sign up to be notified or "follow" the shows, you will receive an email. Click on the link and listen live. There is a live chat room where you can chat with like-minded people. You can ask the show host questions and receive answers. You can also listen to previous shows. I have a widget on my blog to the left and you can click on it and listen while you read. A good source of information.
A new kid on the block is Blogtv. It is hard to search for preppers or homesteaders, you just have to know about them. I have started having shows on Tuesday nights at 8 pm eastern. http://www.blogtv.com/People/PreparedHousehold . Subscribe and you will emailed when a show starts. We have talked about personal disasters and gardening so far. Another good channel is http://www.blogtv.com/People/americangamefowl
So, come join the fun. You can learn and collaborate with like minded individuals.
So, as always...be prepared.
