Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2012

Survival Life, the disaster preparation and survival blog, is growing in popularity with its semiweekly Newsletters. The latest issue has been published and sent to subscribers, and it includes a variety of useful and applicable information for any prepper looking for practical advice.

The main article of the Newsletter was written by Survival Life Editor ‘Above Average' Joe, who has operated the blog and website since its inception. His advice on bartering is shared in the article, which he says will likely be the only way to conduct transactions after a major disaster.

“When things go south, particularly in an economic collapse where the dollar is nearly worthless, a number of non-monetary goods will be more valuable than a fistful of dollar bills,” wrote Joe in the article.

Joe goes on to list the best items to have in case of a barter situation, and details why he believes people should acquire them.

In addition to the main article, Joe also wrote a piece for the Newsletter that leaked his grandfather's catfish bait recipe. The concoction can be easily made, kept for a long time, and is one of the best ways to catch fish anytime, anywhere.

“This recipe has worked for my family for a long time and hopefully it will work for you,” wrote Joe. “There are a ton of other recipes available online using many different ingredients and I would love to know what you use and what works for you.”

Finally, the Newsletter included a Practical Prepper article with a review of the Sparkie alternative fire tool. Joe wrote that the Sparkie was a less-expensive option than the more popular BlastMatch, and its value is worth the price.

“You can never have too many ways to make a fire and if it is freezing cold and raining outside the first thing to go is the dexterity in your fingers,” Joe wrote.

Articles like these are featured daily on, alongside content other prepper blogs, product reviews, e-book reviews, and a variety of topics on disaster preparation and survival. It is a non-politically biased source that is geared toward the survival side of prepping. Subscriptions to the daily Newsletter brings all of the latest information from straight to readers' inboxes. They can be accessed free of charge by entering an email address in the form on the blog's homepage.

Whether readers need wilderness survival tips or strategies to plan for an urban disaster, covers it all. Well on its way to becoming a preeminent member of the survival blog-o-sphere, is contributing to the conversation and hopes readers do as well.

As Joe and the team like to say, “It's your life. Prepare to survive.”
