ALT.Life - A Directory of Alternative Lifestyle Communities on Steem @ 1 April 2019

3년 전

Steem has some really inspiring and buoyant 'alternative lifestyle' related communities.

These include Homesteaders Co-op, Natural Medicine, Vegans of Steemit, EcoTrain, TribeSteemUp, Canna-Curate and Truth Decentralized.

There may well be others I haven't come across yet.

As part of the plan to promote alternative lifestyle communities on Steem to attract new 'ALT.lifers' onto the platform I have started compiling a directory of the communities.

The Directory of Alternative Lifestyle Communities on Steem @ 1 April 2019

Thank you everyone for the feedback on the previous drafts of the directory.

I believe I have incorporated everyone's comments and feedback. My apologies if I missed anything - please do message me again.

Here is the updated and more complete directory.

If you know of any other communities on Steem that should be added please let me know. Likewise with any amendments to the information below.

The Global Homesteaders Collective has now gone. In its place @freedompoint and @freedomtowrite have created The Inner Blocks that started a few days ago.

I have continued to build the list of homeschoolers and unschoolers on Steem. Numbers are now reaching the mid-twenties and interest is growing in setting up a Discord server as a starting point for developing a homeschooling and unschooling community on Steem.

Any unschoolers or homeschoolers interested in joining this, and/or being added to the list please message Pennsif#9921 on Discord.

Thank you for the suggestions. This list though is for groups who have an active community structure (primarily through a Discord server).

The ones you mention are more individual accounts as far as I know. And @impactN declined to be included in the list.



I did not know it was possible to summon me, but apparently it is

Super nice initiative @pennsif... constructive, useful & building links & communities. Hoping you might consider joining us on the relaunched @ecotrain as a passenger. 😊 Appreciating your work & energy... resteemed.
