Usually I point my readers toward a specific article on other sites that I found particularly useful and wanted to share. Today I’m giving you my list of 10 survival blogs I think you should be reading. All were chosen because they each regularly publish quality survival and prepping information for you.
Best Survival Blogs: Top 10 Picks
Jim Rawles’ Survival Blog is one of our favorites and rightfully so, he writes interesting articles and his reader’s submissions are excellent.
Lisa, the Survival Mom, is a great resource for the modern survivalist prepper with a family. The term “survivalist” usually brings images of men clinging to their guns in the wilderness but The Survival Mom provides regular people with great ideas for prepping in everyday life. (Like the Survival Mom Vehicle Kit)
The Suburban Survivalist regularly publishes good articles on survival and prepping that make you think and plan, without a lot of fluff in between. He is always available to point people in the right direction and discussion of preps on your site or his.
The TEOTWAWKI Blog publishes articles a few times a week and they are always good gear ideas or survival book reviews. The site takes on good questions about your plans and preps and doesn’t always just follow the same old ideas in survivalist culture. (Do You Really Need a Bug Out Bag)
Scott at But Out Survival doesn’t publish articles as often as other sites, but when he does they are quality. Scott is an experienced outdoors man and sailor who takes a unique analytical look at Bugging Out problems and solutions. He has a book in the market. Check it out here:

Although maybe not a true blog in the writing sense, SouthernPrepper1’s video blog on youtube is one of our favorites (if not our favorite). SouthernPrepper1 doesn’t just talk a big game, he lives it. If you haven’t watched some of his videos, here is a quick list of some of our favorites: DoomsDay Preppers NatGeo w/ SouthernPrepper1, Underground Survival Bunker, Trip Wires for Retreat Security.
If only SouthernPrepper1 was our neighbor…..
Fernando “FERFAL” Aguirre who is the author of the book “The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse” writes updates to his best selling book on this blog. FerFal is one of the few writers in the Survival Blogosphere who has lived through a modern survival situation. His tips and experiences from both his book and his blog will prove useful in helping to prepare you and your family.
It doesn’t hurt that FERFAL (Fernando FAL .308) is a pretty cool guy as well. You can check out his book below:

8. SHTF Blog
Updated often, this blog provides great reads by Jarhead Survivor, Rangerman, and Calamity Jane. In our minds there is something to be said about a Survivalist Blog which doesn’t have to have a “Non-Fiction” writing contests every week to boost their Search Engine Optimization – these guys don’t!!! Some of our favorites: 10 Best Guns for SHTF, How to Make a Humble Hobo Stove. Keep up the good work Rangerman, Jarhead, and Jane!!!
Rourke provides a good mix of non-fiction posts, gear reviews, and news updates on his site. One of our favorite parts of his site is his “Survival Database Downloads” located on the right side of the navigation bar on the home page. The “Survival Database” is full of great information compiled by Rourke over the years.
Rourke is another very cool guy in the survival world.
We love Erich’s site and his views on survival and preparedness. We also checked out his new Prepper Academy and loved it. Tons of great information and he lives by what he preaches….Erich is ready for any situation. Keep up the good work.
