Submission Guidelines

We welcome articles from our readers! If you have an area of expertise, such as DIY projects, food storage, building/maintaining retreats, or any other area related to survival, prepping, or self-sufficient living, we’d love to have you contribute to the site.

Here are our submission guidelines.

1) Please contact us prior to submitting an article. Tell us about yourself and your proposed article. We want to make sure we don’t already have an article or two in the works on a similar topic.

2) Articles should be sent in the body of an email. Please do not send us .doc or .rtf file attachments. If you have photos to submit with the article, please attach them as .jpg files.

3) If your article has been published previously, whether in print or online, you MUST have full rights ownership before submitting it to us. We also need to know where it has been published before. By submitting the article to us, you are certifying you own the rights to the article.

4) We have no set minimum nor maximum length for articles. That said, we’ve found articles running 300-1,000 words or so seem to work the best. If your article is substantially longer, consider breaking it up into two or more segments. Keep your article on point and avoid rambling.

5) Please be sure to run your article through a spell check prior to sending it to us. We reserve the right to make minor edits concerning length, spelling, and grammar.

6) Submitting an article is not a guarantee of publication. We reserve the right to reject articles for any reason at our discretion.

7) All articles and other correspondence relating to being published on should be directed to

8) All articles published on are owned by the individual authors who submitted the work to us. You own it, not us. You are merely allowing us to publish it on our site. If at any time you wish to have the article removed, contact us and we’ll take care of it ASAP.

We have had a number of inquiries from vendors and other suppliers asking about posting an article about their product lines. Please keep the following guidelines in mind:

Articles should not be just infomercials for your products. While it is fine to include a link or two to your site within the article, keep the information presented broad and general in scope. For example, if you sell freeze-dried food, an article about the necessity for long-term food storage is great but 1,000 words about your specific product is not going to be well received by us.

Please do include a signature line at the bottom of your article. This should include your name, your position within your company, the name of your company, and a link to your website.
