As all good things must do, The Self Reliance Challenge is coming to a close this week. This has been an exceptional experience for me. I have broaden my self reliance horizons and met some wonderful folks who understand my struggles and are quick to celebrate my successes. And even though the challenge is being put to bed, I am looking forward to continuing to follow each and every blog that participated.
And now that we are in the final stretch of the challenge, we have a couple of announcements to share!
Our Self Reliance Giveaway was a blast! It officially ended on Saturday and the automated system picked a name…We have a winner!
Congratulations to Cindy M. of Wisconsin! Here is her reply to my email…
” I AM SO THRILLED. As a Quiet Prepper, I really did want this prize very much.”
Cindy has a bunch of new books, seeds, fertilizers, bamboo plant labels, hand drawn seed saving packets, ebooks, an organic gardening ebook and las, and delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies on the way! I hope you will leave a comment to congratulate her! For a complete description of the giveaway, you can read about it on my post Self Reliance Bloggers’ MEGA Giveaway!

And Now For Our Roundup!
Our second announcement? Let’s have a party to celebrate all the great info shared this month! Yay!
We wanted to share the best of our posts all in one spot! Each Self Reliance blogger has had the opportunity to link up 3 posts from the challenge with our readers in this special Roundup event. Now the rest is up to you! (Didn’t know there was any work involved in this, did you! Don’t worry…It’s not hard!)
We need you to pick your favorites! The Self Reliance post with the most votes will be shared on social media to help that blogger get the recognition they deserve! This is a big deal to bloggers, so I hope you will participate and tell us who you think deserves this most.
You can find links to all of the blogs on my page for The Self Reliance Challenge.
