Food Storage is Very (P)interesting!

Just For Fun, Networking, Site Highlights
We're so excited to be introducing a FUN new way we will be sharing our Food Storage ideas (and others) with you. All throughout the month of February we're going to be doing a fun series called "I HEART PINTEREST FEBRUARY". We'll be doing some super fun (and informative) stuff with Pinterest, so we invite you to join and follow our boards. Start now, so you'll be ready to join the fun in February. (It may take a few days to get in since it's currently invitation only) To let you know how it all started - here are actual excerpts of conversations between Jodi and Julie. Last Fall JODI: So do you know what this Pinterest thing is that everyone is doing? JULIE: NO idea. I think you have…

Food Storage Made Easy on YouTube

Networking, Videos
Today we want to introduce you to a cool way to connect with us and see some content that is NOT available on the blog. (Remember on Thursday Julie hinted that the rest of our Summer Powerless Cooking Adventures will mostly only be posted on YouTube and Facebook?) You may have noticed that the videos we embed on our website are hosted by YouTube. This is a way that is easy for us to get videos online for our blog, but it's also a whole little community over there. If you are already have a YouTube account, we would love it if you would subscribe to our channel, check out more of our videos, and become our "friend". Visit our channel http://youtube.com/user/FoodStorageMadeEasy1 If you don't have a YouTube account, here…

Food Storage Pep Talk

Events, food storage books, Networking
We had a great time this weekend at the Food Storage Fair in Ogden - yes yes, we know - why don't they do these things EVERYWHERE? We were asked to be presenters and we had a vendor booth to sell our eBooks (that we put on Disc for shows and expos) and WonderMills. It was so much fun and we LOVED the enthusiasm everyone there had for Food Storage. The only drawback of the event was that while we were manning our booth, we couldn't go to all the excellent classes. BUT luckily some of our favorite readers were there and we're going to work on convincing them to share (hint hint Becky -making mozzarella cheese out of powdered milk....)    Our class was for people who were "Getting…

Food Storage Made Easy and RSS Feeds

General, Networking
If you are familiar with "blogging" and/or follow a lot of blogs, you probably already have a system in place to stay up to date on all your favorite blogs. However, if you are a blog newbie or only follow one or two blogs, you may just bookmark the sites and try to remember to check back to see if anything new has been posted. We actually started our blog before we really knew what the whole blogging world was all about, so we didn't discover the beauty of RSS feeds for quite some time. We thought we would share with you a quick lesson on RSS feeds and how to use them so that you don't have to go through the hassle of manually checking in to see if…

Food Storage and Emergency Preparedness Links

Networking
Our Why Food Storage? series post is going to be delayed just a little bit as we spent the whole weekend working on a HUGE project that we are very excited about. If you have ever clicked on our Links Page you may have noticed it was sort of pathetic. We always had big dreams of making it into a very useful, one-stop-shop for all your food storage and emergency preparedness needs. However, it was always one of those projects that got pushed to the wayside for other more pressing projects. Well this weekend we finally snapped and decided to make the page into what we always wanted it to be. We hope you find it helpful in your search for food storage information. Check out our new Useful Links…
