Youtube Channel

I pretty much laughed off the anonymous comment on my making money post about starting a Youtube channel for the blog, but then during the night last night as I lay awake thinking of ways to organize my life, it occurred to me that yes, maybe I SHOULD try to combine all my videos related to the homestead in one place, different from where I put my more personal content.

So this morning I created the Aikihomestead Youtube Channel.  I'll try to upload video content related to what we're doing and experiencing here on as regular basis as I can.

I'll try to upload some of the videos that I've already cross-referenced on this blog first, although if I come across anything of interest in the meantime, I'll be sure to upload that too.

As always, rate, comment, and subscribe!

Making Money With a Homesteading Blog

It finally happened!  My get rich at a moderate pace plan is beginning to come to fruition!  After nearly nine years and over five hundred different posts, Google has emailed me to tell me that they have cut me a cheque for $100 (Canadian, in case it matters - or almost $77 US).

Not sure what to do with this newfound windfall - maybe invest in cryptocurrency?!

Stay tuned for when I can report on my $200 threshold...  In 2027 if we can hold the course!

Water Running in the Bathroom!

After a couple of mild days, and warm fires, and wishful thinking, the water line in the bathroom suddenly burst to action just the other day!

A sight for sore eyes!
There was a bit of sediment that had collected, but surprisingly less than I feared.  It's so nice to wash up in there again!  We just have to remember to try to send down warm water once in awhile, instead of a steady diet of toothpaste...
