Do Dead Preppers Tell Tales?


Life is fragile!  We are born, try to live life to the fullest and then somewhere along the line, we give up the ghost.  You might think I’m talking about human life here.  I’m not!  I’m talking about the life of Prepper, Survival, Homesteading, Bushcraft, You Name It…websites.

In the years I’ve run Prepper Website, I have seen many good and great websites close their doors.  This is not something new.  I wrote about it way back in August 2014 in The SAD Way of Preparedness Websites – Possibly An Analogy of the Preparedness Life!  

The truly sad things about seeing a site close their doors is that all the great content that they created, the articles, videos, graphics are lost!  For many, this might not be so evident.  But for someone who follows a lot of websites, it is!  AND, it is even more apparent when someone goes to the Prepper Website Tag Cloud to research or look up a certain topic, clicks on a link and finds that the website is gone!  Yes, it is truly sad when a website closes their doors and lets their content go to the happy prepping hunting ground in the big sky above!  Or…is it?

For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, there is a website called The Way Back Machine.  It archives websites from the internet.  I recently used TWBM to link to an article that was on my Gardening Link Bomb article.  The article was from the Farm Dreams website and about Natural and Organic Pest Control.  I needed some help in my garden, so I desperately wanted to reread this information.  A simple search on TWBM’s website and there it was!  I was able to link to TWBM’s version of it so others could benefit from it too!

Instead of trying to walk you through how to do this in written form, I created a short video to show you how to utilize TWBM and the Tag Cloud on Prepper Website.  Check it out!
