One of the sites I check regularly is Survival Blog - https://survivalblog.com/

I find it is an interesting mix of information and insight. Another site I check now and again and often find interesting information is Backwoods Home - http://www.backwoodshome.com/

Since I've become a Ham... pause for laugh... I am also looking at the following:
https://offgridham.com/
https://www.amateurradio.com/

I'll also 'cruse' the interwebs by doing a search for a general topic such as, "Stay warm when the power is out" and have found several good (some bad) articles. On occasion I've even found some sites/articles when searching topics that are so bad as to be a welcome laugh... sad to say the authors are often serious but unknowingly ridiculous.

I'll also check some news sites that are "Aggregate Link" sites where many sources are presented with headlines and/or brief intro information. I've found some good things that way too.

I don't "follow" any, but some I return to often. Nothing related to preparedness though.

When I'm learning a new classical piano piece, I often go listen to a recording of it performed by this performer. She even the terribly difficult stuff look easy:

If I want to hear an analysis/breakdown of a more recent song, the "What Makes This Song Great?" series by this guy is fantastic:

IŽll second that. There is a lot of good information. Without his channel I would not have been prepared for the coming Jack oŽ Lantern menace.
His Shasta commercial is priceless.

Top 10 Ultimate Survival Youtube Channels

https://youtu.be/fpyVv7hnS54

Of these;
KGB survivalist hasn't posted anything in ages.
Alfie hardly posts.
Survival Lilly ::::: sigh :::: isn't she wonderful? is still going strong.
Black Scout Survival has gone completely bonkers and think the US is going to have a civil war next Wednesday.

Was a shock at the start of the pandemic when survival sites had lots of prepper content and realised from the comments these people are delusional.
Apart from the 'Election Plans' thread we have thankfully avoided this stuff.
If I'm wrong I'll happily apologise to you if you post a list of the people you had to shoot because they thought the best response to their side losing was to attack your house.

I am not a serious prepper by any means. Just a regular city guy who likes to somehow protect family and loved ones away from troubling times and troubling people.

I do follow folks like Dave Canterburry and Survival Lilly on You tube, but have no plans of bugging out to the wilderness in bad situations. Rather , I am sticking to urban areas (maybe bugging out from one town to another if need be). In this context, dealing with different types of personalities is one of my interests. And one of the most important types I need to learn more about is : narcissist personalities. So, I do follow some pages about them on Instagram and other social media, and You Tube of course.

Trust me, you don't want to have a narcissist in your inner circle any time in your life, and if it is a survival situation, it is much much worse.
