Welcome! I'm Elise Xavier, best known in the survival industry for my work on the survival blog More Than Just Surviving, which I co-author together with my husband, Thomas Xavier. Xavier Survival is an umbrella term we use to group together all of the survival websites and projects Thomas and myself own and run. If you'd like to learn more about Thomas and I, you can do that by visiting More Than Just Surviving's about page.
Thomas and I sometimes refer to Xavier Survival as the "More Than Just Surviving Family of Sites." This is because More Than Just Surviving was our first project in the survival and preparedness industry, because it is our largest project to date, and because it has (and will always have) an untouchable place in our hearts as something that is purely ours, that we have worked very hard to get started and grow, and that we are exceptionally proud of. Other Xavier Survival websites that sprung about afterwards, either those created or adopted by us, ultimately owe their existence or adoption to our passion for More Than Just Surviving.
Take a look below if you're interested in learning which websites and projects fall under the Xavier Survival/More Than Just Surviving Family umbrella, or if you'd like to know a little bit about each one. If there's a type of website or project you'd like us to pick up in the future, don't hesitate to pitch the idea to us by getting in contact with us. We love new ideas, and while we cannot adopt every good idea considering our plates are already quite full handling those sites we already own and maintain, we're always open to pursuing new passion projects that we feel we can handle so long as we still feel capable of being able to provide quality content for the websites we already run.
Our survival blog, More Than Just Surviving, was our first website in the survival and preparedness niche. Besides frequently featuring articles related to survival and preparedness, the blog also concentrates heavily on gear, and reviewing items that can be extremely valuable for any survivalist or prepper. Knives, multi-tools, and other everyday carry gear frequent the review section, while topics such as first aid, stockpiling, and personal finance frequent the articles section.

Survival Threads is a survival, preparedness, and gear forum begun as a way for Thomas and I to better connect with the community that built up around More Than Just Surviving. No topic under the survival, preparedness, and gear umbrellas is off topic - unless it violates the no religion, no politics rule, in place to help abrasive or inflammatory topics from taking over the forum and dividing the community. Share your opinions, show off your pictures, learn something new. Follow on: Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.
Survival Pulse is a daily survival news update website that features new articles published in the survival and preparedness niche, as well as alternative news resources. While we did not found Survival Pulse ourselves, we were more than happy to take it under the More Than Just Surviving wing once the previous owner expressed he no longer had the time to maintain the site. We adopted Survival Pulse on February 6, 2015, and haven't looked back since. It's been an excellent addition to the More Than Just Surviving family, and we're very glad to be doing our part to help the site continue to live on, especially since it's a site we both used and loved for a long time before acquiring it ourselves. Follow on: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, or RSS.
Survival Shelf is a survival link resource site comprised of heavily curated links that both Thomas and myself feel are valuable to the survivalist and prepper community. The purpose of Survival Shelf is to help draw well-deserved attention to the excellent survival and preparedness articles around the web that may have become buried among the slew of newer links and information. Through Survival Shelf, we also hope to shine a spotlight on the excellent blogs, websites, and channels in our industry, as well as the people who created and run them.

If you're interested in advertising on one or more of the websites that fall under the Xavier Survival umbrella, feel free to get in contact with us to let us know what you have in mind. We are typically quite selective about who we partner with and how we advertise, due in part to the fact that we like to keep the quality of the advertising as high as the quality of our content, and in part because of the influx of inquiries we have. That being said, we are always open to considering new partnerships and methods of advertising.
