Simple Homestead blog hop #189



Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Welcome! I look forward to Thursdays when we get together for another linky party. Have fun exploring all the great ideas that are shared here each week on the hop. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). The hop begins at 12:01 am on Thursday morning and runs through Sunday evening.

This Week


During the month of January I'll be participating in a Self Reliance Challenge. I'm joining a group of bloggers who will be writing about self reliance topics such as gardening, livestock, cooking from scratch, saving money and energy and so much more. I hope you'll tune in and read the posts here as they are published, and maybe even work on your own self-reliance goals while I work on mine. My new posts are published every Monday.

Here are my posts in the Challenge so far:
Setting Realistic Goals for the New Year, and a Challenge
You can learn more about the Self Reliance Challenge here.
