SHTF blog – Modern Survival

Changes at SHTF Blog

Hey Ya’ll,

Today’s post is about change.  Over the last year I’ve been wanting to take SHTF Blog to the next level, but alas, I simply don’t have the time the blog needs to do this.  Young kids and a full time job eat up most of my “spare” time and writing blog posts takes up the rest.

Recently I was talking with Joel Forge at Forge Solutions and we struck a deal.  He buys SHTF Blog from me and does the boring, back end drudge work of getting the site up to snuff and I get to keep writing.

What does that mean for your favorite Jarhead, Road Warrior, and Calamity Jane?  Well, nothing really.  I’m staying on as manager and they’re getting more money to write posts.  The same great crew writing the same great posts!  Plus I’ll be able to do more gear reviews.  That’s what I call a win win, folks.

Fear not!  I wouldn’t sell to anybody who’s not interested in putting the prepping message out there.  I’ve talked with Joel at length and he’s a straight up guy, not to mention a real go-getter.

What’s our goal?  World domination of course!  We want to be the best prepping blog out there and with Joel’s guidance and dedication I think we can accomplish exactly that.  With his knowledge and skill of getting web sites and blogs into the public eye we’ll be able to reach a larger audience.

R. Augustine is me, by the way.  R stands for Robert in case you’re wondering.  I feel like the mask has been pulled off the Lone Ranger!    But don’t worry, Jarhead Survivor will be around for a long time to come.
