Sustainable, Simple, Slow Living Blogs: Join the Linky List

There are many, many ways to change one’s lifestyle to make it more sustainable, from growing your own food to cooking from scratch to making your own clothes to going completely carbon neutral. Not surprisingly there are just as many different sorts of blogs which roughly fit under the sustainable living umbrella.

Let’s gather as many of those blogs here as we can.


  • In the usual Linky List ettiquete, please create a link back to this page – – from your blog. Thanks. Feel free to use the button below, or just use a text link. This list will only grow if people link to it! To link to the button, you can just copy and paste this code: <a href=""><img src="" alt="Sustainable Suburbia: Striving for a lower impact lifestyle. Join the Sustainable Living Blogs Linky Lists"></a>
  • Once, you’ve done that, choose up to two categories that you fit most comfortably under (one is also fine).
  • Type your name (if you like) and blog title into the title field – if you list yourself twice, please use the same title both times.
  • Sustainable Suburbia: Striving for a lower impact lifestyle. Join the Sustainable Living Blogs Linky ListsI’d also love it if you would mention this list in a post, so we can get as many bloggers represented here as possible. Let me know if you do this and I’ll give you a shout out on the Sustainable Suburbia Facebook page.



I’ve divided the blogs into several groups. It was hard to decide how to do this, and there is certainly a lot of crossover :

Let me just say one more time, this is not about ‘being there’ – this is about the journey. So you don’t have to be completely self sufficient, for instance, to put your self in the Self Sufficiency section – you just need to blog about trying to be, or approximating or working-towards-even-if-you’re-never-really-going-to-make-it.

    Please could you remove my link on the Suburban & Urban Homesteading section – I entered it there in error.

    Thank you for making this linking facility available to all of us. It’s great to have a place to find like-minded people.

    Hi Kirsten,

    I put myself under ‘a country plot’ and ‘frugal living’ but had trouble with the photos again! This time I will take you up on you offer and email the photo through to you.

    I finally was able to get the button posted on my sidebar, I apologize for the delay due to blogger issues.

    When I was linking in the different categories, I also had an issue and thought the link in the Frugal Living category didn’t go through so I linked again in the Gardening category, therefore I have three links now instead of the two allowed. If one must be deleted, I would prefer the Gardening link be deleted.

    Thanks for your help and hosting such a great link list. This is a wonderful idea!

    Hello there,

    I was having problems adding my site. It did not let me choose a category and the picture did not work. It will not let me resubmit it either so I didn’t know if I need to have it deleted and then I can start over or if you can help me fix it.

      OK, sorry I am slow in the computer world I guess. πŸ™‚

      I got one listed in the Crafty section and it worked right but the other in the General Slow section is the one that has the goofed up picture.

        Hi Dave, I’m not sure what is going on with the photos, many of them seem to be missing, that were there previously. I will have to contact the Linky List support! But, I have fixed yours πŸ™‚

    Hi there, the Linky list support is still not working with the photo addition. How can I get the photo to you…just as a cut and paste?
    I just want to use one I use on my blog Facebook page Alexaasimplelife

    Technology is great when it works but woeful when not!

    Many thanks and all the best
