Q: Will you write something for me?

A: Will you pay me? If so, email me and we can talk about it. (If you think that sounded rude then you are not the kind of person I want to write for. I do write for exposure – on my own blog and with my own books, but if I take time away from my own endeavors I want to be reimbursed for that. I firmly believe in paying artists for their work.)

Q: What’s with all the homesteading/self-sufficiency stuff in the archive?

A: Once upon a time that was the focus of this blog. It’s not my thing anymore but I can’t bring myself to delete/unpublish so much hard work. And hey, they’re still getting hits both here and on Pinterest.
