  1. That is a really good thing you are doing Jack.

    I love the concept of The Brink of Freedom site. I would love the site more if there was a bit more depth to some of the articles I have read on the site. One way might be some supplemental information such as links to more information on a subject. Jack does this in his write ups to his podcasts and often the great thing is I learn a lot more and travel through the web into other good information.

    Thanks and keep up the great work Joe!

    • Good point man. I am working on getting more linking implemented. As you can imagine this is quite the conquest with the 30+ writers we have. Thank you for subscribing to the magazine!

    • I can imagine Josiah.

      I just want to stress man you are doing a good job and the site is an excellent idea.

      My hope is you do not think I am being negative man. I want to send you positive vibes because it is not easy. Might be you will soon need an intern of your own just to go through a slush pile for submissions.

      Again the site looks great and is organized well. There is great info.
      Thanks for the site Joe!

  2. Being my birthday today, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I’m one of the winners. Thanks Jack and Josiah.
    Take care,

  3. Thank you Jack, for your generous giveaway. And thank you Josiah, for the awesome site! Well done, sir!


    Love it and send it out to all my people to get signed up…O and JO, you are a big word in other circles. You, Jack, and my self got LOLed on IN THE RABBIT HOLE for humus.

  5. I had no idea BOF had a newsletter. I signed up and signed up for his twitter feed.

    I use twitter now almost exclusively for updates to sites I enjoy.

  6. It seems to me Joe might be a past software guy, or maybe more of a web developer, or a graphic designer. Whichever the case you might have the nicest looking website in the homesteading/prepping scene. That is the opinion of someone who has been in web and software development for 5+ years. Great job.
