The Top 50 Survivalist Blogs You Should be Reading in 2017
Survival blogs are the lifeblood of preppers, homesteaders and shtf-ers. Without them information gathering and community building would be difficult to say the least.
I spend a lot of time reading material from our fellow survivalist bloggers (so does Ryan) and we thought it would be good to put together a collection of the top survival websites for others to enjoy.
I’ve tried to be as impartial as possible so the ranking is based on 3rd party website stats and the size of social media following.
I’ve also broken down the blogs into the overall top 50 and then gone through and come up with a top 10 for the subcategories of homesteading, prepping, shtf, bushcraft/wilderness and tactical/weapons.

Top 10 Overall Survival Blogs
While it may not have as large of a readership as other survival blogs, OffGridSurvival is the most hardcore prepping website that covers all the bases.
The information is well organized and easily navigated by category.
In addition, topics are covered in depth and not sugar-coated or downplayed for mainstream media like some other websites.
Perhaps the oldest survival blog on the internet that is still regularly updated, this website of the same name contributes regular journal entries that appeal to an older audience.
You can find prepping advice dating all the way back to 2005.
This magazine hybrid site offers the best outdoor/survival advice I’ve seen. It doesn’t look at things from an extremist point of view, but instead from a very practical standpoint.
If you want honest reviews and honest information from true experts spending time outdoors in threatening situations this is a great place to start.
The Art of Manliness takes a look at all aspects of a well-rounded man. Though the entire site isn’t relevant to survival they do have some very useful articles on knot tying and gear reviews that are worth looking over.
The Survival Mom has a good thing going by taking a female perspective on preparedness. Although men are typically concerned with safety as a first priority it’s common for women to think about the emotional and nutritional well-being of the family.
This blog goes into detail on the nurturing aspects of surviving different scenarios and embraces the idea of community with a legion of followers who combine their knowledge in the forum and facebook group.
Survival Life is perhaps the best known of the survival sites and has grown to be the biggest authority on the subject.
Though they seem to be largely focused on making money off their visitors there is still a huge wealth of useful information that keeps people coming back.
Ignore their cheap tool upsells and stick to the content and you’ll enjoy your time on Survival Life.
Perhaps the most clever name on all the web Weed ‘Em and Reap is a homesteading blog that prepares visitors for agricultural needs both in urban areas and beyond.
This information will be extremely useful to a large number of people should shit ever hit the fan and city populations are forced into rural areas to fend for themselves.
Mother Earth News is an old magazine that focuses on homesteading. Though it may look a little dated, this site contains everything you need to know about going green and living off the land.
This extremist blog takes an almost conspiracy theorist angle to the end of the world. Everything is urgent in their eyes. A large portion of preppers, including myself, feel a definite sense of impending doom so this blog strikes a cord that I can relate to.
Whether it be financial turmoil, religious unrest or depleting resources you’ll get some good advice on how to prepare for these different situations at SHTF Plan.
For the tactical among us you’ll be happy to know that this weapons blog is on the list.
In a SHTF scenario it’s incredibly important to be able to protect yourself and your family by all means necessary.
Owning and knowing how and when to use a gun is the best way to prepare for all out hysteria and Defend and Carry will show you the way.
