A Open Letter To The Readers of Ready Nutrition About the Prepper Community
This article dedicated to ReadyNutrition reader MilkShakeSuds
This is a fairly straightforward and simple piece for your benefit as a prepper and survivalist. Many articles that are placed upon ReadyNutrition’s screen are of use for your records and to serve (at bare minimum) perhaps as an impetus for further studies on the subject. Do not neglect the comments section!
I wish to personally thank the reader to whom this piece is dedicated, as he sent me some great information on a bicycle motor complete with links and explanation. The reason for this article is this: you will find a lot of wealth in the comments section from many individuals with talent, skills, and wisdom that they are willing to share.
Whenever you visit a site and research a particular topic, it is easy to screen the “dead weight” and the “trolls” in the comments. Trolls are easy to spot: they are repetitively insulting and redundant in their complaints. They follow the same “MO,” or Modus Operandi in the way that they insult and bash others. Don’t allow a few “bad eggs” to dissuade you from the information you may need.
No author (myself included) has the “corner” on all information pertaining to any subject. In this vein, information shared in the comments from anyone willing to contribute to a productive discussion furthering the benefit of any and all readers are both welcome and desired. I, too, am a reader…I read the comments and learn as much as I can from those willing to share with the blog and the rest of us.
After you weed out the negatives and non-productive comments, you will find there are many with considerable experience in the area that is the subject of the article. Highlight them, paste them into a Word document, and print them off and save them. You will come to see that there are many who comment frequently when it is the type of subject central to their area of expertise.
Explore the links and research the extra material they give you. If possible, ask for an e-mail or try to engender a correspondence with them. Chances are you can mutually support one another in your efforts to perfect your prepping and survival skills. Ask questions. That is what the comments section is for…to share information and to ask questions. The blog is a medium of exchange for information, and the authors are facilitators of topics. The heart of any blog is the Readership. That is you, the Reader.
Many have done more than ask questions and share information. I write to many readers here regularly, on my private e-mail. We are a community of like-minded individuals, and this is your forum…your chance to ask questions and be heard. Save the information you have from other sites and exchange that information here when you see a similar article or the same topic of discussion. In the end, any community is only as good as the members of the community wish to make it. There is something at ReadyNutrition for everyone, and there is always room for improvement…and we value your input and information. It is always welcome and always wanted. Stay in that good fight! JJ out!
