This site maps out a yearlong experiment in simplification.

I am going to attempt 365 simple things–daily experiments in living my life in a less complicated manner. More directly. More deliberately. One thing at a time.

Needless to say, I’ll be keeping these posts short and simple as well.

Including this one.

  1. I have been following your blog with interest and would like to award you the Liebster Award for small blogs. You are doing wonderful work and I look forward to more posts! More information can be found at my blog .

      Thanks for following my blog. I would have to think about how to answer your ten questions, and which blogs I would nominate in return. I guess that makes me an “honorary” recipient for now!

      • It took me a while to figure out who I wanted to pass the award on to and how to answer my questions. No worries. I enjoy your blog and the great posts and I’m glad I was able to share the award with you.

  2. Congratulations on tackling the “stuff” in your life and committing to more simplicity. It always amazes me how much “stuff management” there is in my life as well: papers, books, clothes, tools, old photographs, years worth of tax returns and supporting documents, and on and on….I have started taking on little projects at a time (part of my closet, the pantry, the fridge) which keeps me from getting overwhelmed and is quite rewarding. Let’s keep up the good work!
    Thank you for following my blog.

      Yes, it really is something how far we can each get down “the road,” just by taking one small step after another. And thank you for what you are sharing on your blog!

  3. Thanks for the follow on A Purple Patch Life. I, too, am attempting to simplify my life and live more deliberately. Here’s to an educational journey for the both of us!

    Dear friend, Thank you very much, I was really happy to have been following your blog. I’m still a lot to figure out, and here I can only say that you are an awesome blogger, full Inspiring and hope you can inspire more readers. Thanks and greetings compassion from Gede Prama πŸ™‚

  6. Mark – I accidentally found your blog this morning. Through another blog. My decision to simplify began in 2009 and the journey has progressed enormously since then. I began blogging in Oct 2010 (just over 18 months later) and I can confirm that blogging has kept me on my simple path.

    We are doing something similar, but with a longer time frame before we move. I’m going to follow your progress with great interest!

    • Mark says:

      It’s funny–I started this blog before I knew that we would be moving–and moving in a way that will indeed provide us with all sorts of opportunities to simplify and live more deliberately. Thanks for following along–and I will be following your progress as well.

    Hey Mark. I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog about simple living. I’ve recently started a weekly ‘guest post’, where I invite fellow simple-livers to share their lifestyle and ideas. I would love for you to take part! Would you be interested? Polina
