In case you missed it, please see Gaye’s post here.
When I first spoke to Gaye about Backdoor Survival, I knew we had a gem.
Not only is Backdoor Survival an amazing resource in the Prepping space, it has that “extra” touch. It’s more than just another content site to me.
I thought it would be helpful to outline a few expectations to our readership. We have a dedicated mission to grow Backdoor Survival into the best positive prepping resource online.
What Will Change
New Faces: Behind the scenes, we are busy screening new writers to carry the message of Backdoor Survival. NOTE: if you are interested in writing for Backdoor Survival, see instructions at the end of this message.
New Channels: We are eager to try our hand at new distribution channels, such as Newsletters and even a YouTube channel.
More Gear Testing: We are planning to step up our gear testing, evaluating and recommending (or not!) prepping gear. We will test the gear as if SHTF already!
Re-design: Within the next 3 months we are looking to re-design Backdoor Survival into a more navigable resource which speaks to each visitor at their respective prepping experience level.
What Will Stay the Same
Positive Prepping: We will always carry this message close. Readers will never see “doom and gloom” for the sake of clicks. Enough said.
Actionable Advice: Gaye has paved the path, but Backdoor Survival will continue to deliver “in-the-trenches” advice with in-depth, well researched, articles.
Giveaways: Continue to look for giveaways and raffles. In fact, our team will be working on introducing more high value giveaways as a “thank you” to the community. If you have a product or know someone who could benefit from this, you can review this page for details.
Female Perspective: In this space, Backdoor Survival has a unique voice. Our team believes it is important to maintain this perspective moving forward. While we will continue to feature guest posts from the likes of Dr. Joe Alton (and others), the core message will be from the perspective of the Survival Woman. In fact, we will even have Gaye back from time-to-time as a guest contributor and definitely for a follow up interview.
