UK Preparedness Magazine – Trying Again

A UK Preparedness Magazine

Last year, The Real Survivalists came up with an idea that we thought would have a big impact on Preparedness in the UK. We wanted to create and launch a UK Preparedness Magazine. This magazine would be all about preparedness in the UK and feature stories of UK Preppers, news, interviews and it would aim to create a UK preparedness community.

However, we went about this all wrong! We messed up completely and the idea never got off the ground. We decided to use Kickstarter as a way to crowdfund the creation and launch of the first issue. The main area we went wrong is that we thought a small number of larger donations would be better than lots of small donations. The rewards we offered didn’t kick in unless you made a ¬£50 donation – we realise now that we were pricing out exactly who we wanted to be involved with the magazine.

What now?

The idea of a UK Preparedness Magazine never died for TRS. We still think the UK needs its own Preparedness Magazine. Of course, there are preparedness magazines available already but these tend to be American with topics that aren’t always relevant¬†to us here in the UK. The Real Survivalists want this to change.

At some point in the very near future, we are going to try again to get the magazine off the ground. We have learnt from our previous mistakes and feel the time is almost right to try again. This time, however, we will make sure all of you are able to be involved (and rewarded) in this exciting journey.

Exact details are yet to be confirmed but very soon, you will be hearing a lot more about this.

Finally, The Real Survivalists would like to officially apologise for letting you down last year when we tried to make this happen. We did not mean to come across as greedy or misinformed, we simply made a mistake.

We are very excited to start work again on a UK Preparedness Magazine and we can’t wait to get it into your hands.

Stay tuned as there is a lot more to come.

  1. As there is no date on this post I can’t tell when this article was written and whether or not this has been discussed this year. However, I have literally only come across your web-page and thoroughly believe you are right in getting a UK Prepper magazine together.

    I was just about to subscribe to an American one, but as you stated there will be a lot of information irrelevant to us here in the UK. So, mistakes aside, we all learn from them, how close are you to launching a real magazine and what help do you need?

    1. Hi

      Thanks for getting in touch. This is a VERY recent article (about a week or 2) so it’s definitely the right time to make contact.

      We are probably a little while (maybe 6 months?) from launching the actual magazine but we will be starting work on it very very soon. We will be looking at sponsors and crowdfunding to help launch the initial issue and from there, the magazine will grow and become completely self sufficient.

      Keep an eye out over the next week or so and you will see our campaign to make this happen take off and gain momentum – very exciting!
