Runamuk featured in Mother Earth News!

I’m so thrilled that the folks from Mother Earth News would consider Runamuk!

Last fall I responded to a call for submissions to Mother Earth News (MEN).  They were looking to do a story on home-based businesses and requested entrepreneurs to send them the story of how they got into business and why they chose the niche that they did.  So I wrote out the story of Runamuk and I sent it along in an email.

I didn’t hear a thing about it until just last week, and in fact I’d given up on the idea of having Runamuk featured in the prominent sustainable living magazine.  Then on Friday, out of the blue, I received an email from MEN informing me that while they wouldn’t be able to include us in the article for the published magazine, they would like to feature our story on their modern homesteading blog at their website.

I’m so elated!
