Many of you have commented since I started this blog in July 2013, and every time it has been valuable to me. Interacting with you makes me feel like I’m part of a broad community of simplifiers. It’s great.
In fact, I would love to hear from you even more. Why are you interested in simplifying? How did you start? What have the hurdles been? What is challenging and what has been easy? I hope you’ll share.
— I live in St. Paul, Minnesota, my home state, and I have also lived in France, Latvia, and Argentina. Although what I post makes most sense in an American context, I hope that there’s value here for people living in other countries.
— I’m an introvert who likes and is interested in people. Blogging offers a way to interact with a lot of people one at a time.
— I share my experience and what has worked for me, and try not to sound prescriptive.
— Two years ago I cut my work commitment to 36 hours/week. That small reduction in work hours has noticeably improved my quality of life, and I’m grateful to be in a situation where it is possible.
— I’d like to come up with more content for “Five-minute simplifying.” We all need more ways to feel successful, rather than overwhelmed, right?
