Survivalist Blogger Does Not Survive

by | 2nd, October 2008

“M.D Creekmore” had been running Survivalist Blog. He used it to warn Americans to prepare for a repeat of the Great Depression and Zimbabwean-style hyperinflation.

He worked out of a from a 26ft caravan parked on a strip of wasteland.

The site details how he forages for food in the surrounding countryside, enjoys light from a home-made solar generator converted from an old lawn mower and supplements his income by doing odd jobs.

But despite carrying advertisements to help cover the running costs, he has now lost his internet connection after funds dried up.

Those damn Yankees:

“Some of you are wondering why my postings on Survivalist Blog have been so erratic over the last month.

“I no longer have internet service at the homestead kitty.

“The income from this blog was not sufficient to cover the cost of my internet service, so I am posting to the blog from a friends house whenever I get the chance.”

He went on: “No matter what the experts say, blogging is not a good way to make a living, or even earn a little extra cash.

“The truth is when it comes to making money publishing a blog is one of the worst things you could do.

“Only a few ever make enough to cover costs and only a handful ever make a good profit.”

Anorak hears you…
