    DIY Projects: 15 Ideas For Using Cinder Blocks

    Cinder blocks are actually CMUs (an acronym for concrete masonry unit) i.e. large, rectangular bricks which are used in construction, but have a lot of other uses. We’ll explore 15 smart ideas for using cinder blocks for your homestead.
    Why cinder blocks you may be wondering? Well, because they’re readily available at any hardware store or construction site, you can get them for basically nothing if you scrap or recycle them, they’re relatively lightweight, tough, and they require next to nothing in terms of maintenance.

    I believe they have a connection ..... I am sure I have seen Survivopedia advertise on Preppers Way's site. An attempt to redirect traffic here to one's own site ....... instead of posting here in your own words. Free marketing huh?

    Interesting looking ideas, I like the shelving idea, but wonder how it would work for areas that get even small earthquakes.
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content

    Well, "Emma" doesn't seem to be interested in any discussion in the threads she starts, just dropping her website url that is loaded with Amazon and Clickbank affiliate links in the articles. "She" doesn't have a privacy policy, which would make the site illegal to begin with. She uses Amazon affiliate links without the proper amazon affiliate disclosure. This would get her Amazon affiliate account banned if Amazon was aware (clickbank too with their latest affiliate requirements). Plus, with the latest FTC affiliate disclosure laws...she doesn't have those disclosures either. Lots of copyrighted images from various sources. Red flags everywhere.

    Just some friendly advice for "Emma". If you're going to try to build a REAL business online, I'd suggest you go about it the right way. The little bit you get in commissions isn't worth the trouble you could run into...esp. in the "Prepper" niche. Those types of sites will get scrutinized 10 times as much as your average site.

    I'm a creep. I'm a weirdo. What the hell am I doing here. I don't belong here.
