minimalist living blogThis blog about simple, minimalist living is far from stale.

But I’m not posting here anymore. This simple living blog tells the story of a complete experience — one you can have too. You can use a journey deep into the minimalist lifestyle as a jumping off point for a better life, just like I did.

So Much More Life isn’t abandoned, unloved, unused or unmonitored. It’s simply finished.

I’ve add this special welcome page to help you understand why I’m no longer adding pages to this blog and to help you find the best of what’s here. But there’s more. I want you to understand that life has phases, and it’s important to recognize when to move on.

I’ve always tended toward simplicity, and that’s still the case. But analyzing my buying decisions, actively decluttering my home and actively participating in the voluntary simplicity community is no longer part of my life. Still, my life will always be influenced by what we’ve discussed on this blog.

And this blog isn’t going anywhere. It represent an accomplishment. It’s the documentation of one part of my life’s journey, and it lives on in me and in those who participated in the community here.

To find the best of what’s here, explore. Start with my Best Decisions series, browse using the categories listed in the bar at the bottom of the page — and use the search feature at the bottom left.

If you’d like to be part of my life’s current phase, I may have written something recently for Gip’s Front Yard — but honestly, probably not. I don’t blog very much anymore.

In any case, remember that I’m still here. I’ve always been here in one way or another. Please stay in touch, and enjoy the 250+ pages of information, commentary and discussion here.

And also remember, there may be so much more to life than you’re experiencing now. Take action to avoid missing out on any of it.
