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 I own and run. If you'd like to learn more about the two of us, you can do so 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.
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 outdoor skills frequent the articles section. Follow on: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, or RSS.
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.
Survival Pulse is a survival and preparedness email newsletter that features news articles from alternative news sources, as well as the best new articles published daily by the top survival and preparedness blogs on the web. 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, then on August 25, 2016, took the website underground, altering it from being a website to the medium (email) it's in today.

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.
