Michigan YouTubers to Inspire You
Let me start off this post by aging myself. I have been around since the dawn of YouTube. I remember the wacky viral videos, the David after Dentist, Potter Puppet Pals… How this platform has evolved over the past fifteen years is truly amazing to me.
In today’s YouTube, you can find information on, quite literally, almost everything. I always use it when planning homesteading projects; it can be beneficial to tag along a YouTuber’s journey as they build a chicken coop, for example. From beginning to end, you can see their entire process; experience their frustrations, celebrate their wins, learn from their mistakes, and, even better… Ask them and their viewers questions in their comment section.
I find the most benefit in learning from those nearby. I recently asked our Instagram community for their favorite homesteading and gardening YouTubers.
Here is a list of Michigan homesteaders and gardeners that just may inspire you on your journey to self-sufficiency.
