thanks for being a part of becoming minimalist. over the past four months, we have experienced fantastic growth (traffic has risen nearly 5X), our reader count has exploded, we have released an e-book, and have become active on twitter and facebook.
and today, we are excited to announce our first spin-off blog: substance over stuff.
substance over stuff is a tumblr blog dedicated to the promotion of the invaluable things in life rather than the accumulation of physical belongings. it will feature inspiring quotes, short stories, web links, and artwork.
why a spin-off blog?
there are three reasons for the new site:
- we have a passion to reach as many people as possible with the inspiring freedom of a simple lifestyle that focuses on substance rather than stuff. we believe that a new tumblr blog dedicated to these values will extend our reach.
- as we have become more connected with the minimalism/simplicity niche on the web, we have been encouraged by the valuable content that is being produced. substance over stuff will be our opportunity to share those works with you.
- we have found tumblr to be a simple way to spread great content and inspiration. as we do our research, we often run across inspiring information. unfortunately, not everything we find can be displayed on this site. tumblr is a simple way to pass along what has inspired us.
will anything change on becoming minimalist?
no. we are committed to providing you with the same quality content as we do today. becoming minimalist will remain our sole platform for original writing/content. substance over stuff is not meant to replace becoming minimalist; it is meant to complement it.
