I’m always excited to read new blogs that are inspiring others to live a minimalist life. And I have been thoroughly enjoying some of the new ones popping up.
Each of the following 7 blogs are less than 6 months old. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you may enjoy perusing them this weekend.
- Simple Rabbit Society – Chloe and her team share articles, advice, hacks, and tips for achieving a beautiful life through minimalism. (Technically they’ve been around 8 months, but I really wanted to include them).
- Minimalist Woman – Meg Wolfe is an advocate of downsizing and simplicity who also writes at Minimalist Cook.
- 365 Less Things – Colleen shares her 365-day resolution to declutter every wardrobe, bench, shelf, pantry and garage space in her home by removing one item everyday for the next twelve months.
- Minimal Student – Jessica takes minimalism to campus offering something unique just for students in a personal, chatty and ‘to-the-point’ format.
- Momentum Gathering – Katie Tallo inspires joyful life change. It’s about shifting, little by little, towards what matters most and letting go of what doesn’t.
- Be More With Less – Courtney Carver encourages her readers to create a life with more savings and no debt, more health and less stress, more time and less stuff, and more joy with less obligation.
- Regards from the Balcony – Tony writes about using simplicity to obtain freedom in life.

Thanks for a useful post

Love these choices! I can only hope one day my blog can make it on the list, to help those who want to live simpler lives!
I agree with these things, a minimalism life is much better than normal life but if you know the real meaning of minimalism. We can enjoy a happy and stress free life with the help of minimalism.
Kate, and others, I probably should point out that my blog at regardsfromthebalcony (#7) is no more (it closed about a year ago when I took a sabbatical abroad). I do still write about a wide range of topics at writingfromafar though. Cheers, Tony.
Great list! Can’t wait to check them all out!
Emily Osterstock says
Does adding a long list of minimalist blogs to your Google Reader defeat the purpose of minimalism? Because I just added all of these, and more ;)
Thank you so much for making this list!
Joshua! I just recently started reading your blog – love it!!! As you can see, I’m going back in the archives to read your other stuff – I’ve written all these down to check out!! Thank you! Any more you can recommend?
Tina Pfeiffer says
Thanks for the links–checking them out now. Here’s one I just discovered today and am now following:
Really wonderful. :)
Hey Joshua! Thank you so much for recommending my little ole blog!
I absolutely love Becoming Minimalist and I’ve read it religiously for quite a while. Your posts are always insightful and honest, which I really love.
I’ve only just started out but getting linked from more seasoned bloggers such as yourself really helps baby blogs like ours grow. I think it’s absolutely fantastic that you’re encouraging small blogs like ours, and I can’t thank you enough for giving us a hand. The comments I’ve received since this post have been extremely positive and motivating.
I hope to pass on the favour one day ;)
First, thanks so much for the link. I must admit I was completely thrown by my traffic charts this morning when I logged into my blog – I thought something was wrong then realized your link resulted in a HUGE spike. :) That’s great. I’ve always been keen for the simple living message to get into the mainstream – the wider it spreads the better in my humble opinion. Thanks again for the link, much appreciated.
Good on you for spreading the word about great new blogs – I love this stuff!
Courtney Carver says
Joshua, I have been reading your blog (and been a subscriber for sometime). Not only have I learned so much from you, but also enjoyed a big readership jump after this post. I can’t thank you enough.
It was also great to get to know some other new bloggers on the minimalist path.
Thanks for bringing awareness to bemorewithless.com and for continuing to be an inspiration to me.
One more? Simplicity by Sunny is new as of November 2009, and is wonderful reading for those who haven’t run across it yet! Still short enough to easily read from the beginning.
Now to go through these 7 new ones. :D

Thanks for the list. I’m enjoying these new blogs.
Gip @ So Much More Life says
Thanks for a useful post.
“Be More With Less” is the only one I’m already reading, so I’ll enjoy getting to know the others. These seven now have standing invitations to exchange guest posts with me. I’d love to feature each of them on my blog.
I’m also liking simplyminded.net. It’s coming along nicely. His post about no one reading his blog got me reading his blog.
Debbie V. says
Thank you for this list – I’ve added all of them to my Google Reader. I’d not seen any of these before and they all sound great.
Betty Jo says
Awesome list. Some of these I’ve found since starting my blog recently, but many of them are new to me. I’m off to check them out! BTW, lovin’ your blog.
thank you so much for your recommendation you are so kind.
I have been reading your blog for a while now and am loving it. I started out to just get rid of stuff but after stumbling upon blogs like yours I soon learned about minimalism and how it can be a whole new way to live. I am approaching it gradually just like my decluttering and my husband is on board as well in fact I think he had heard of you before I did.
Life is good with less and just getting better.
This was your ploy to get me to subscribe, wasn’t it? Well it worked. Strange thing is, you just hit my radar (which I have to say is teensy) this afternoon. I was going to head back to check out your blog more in depth tonight and then, blammo, I get a retweet about this very post! I’m reading it saying, yes, I wanna know who these 7 new bloggers are, and then, double-blammo, there I am among some very fine company. You rock and no, I don’t say blammo in public. Thanks for the shout out! Can’t wait to explore your blog further.

actually, katie, i was just trying to spread the word about quality writing. but if it earns me another subscriber, i’ll take it. welcome aboard.
Chloe Adeline says
@Katie, Joshua keeps a good site here : ) I’ve been a subscriber for awhile and always love what comes through – especially the personal story posts…check them out!
@Joshua, Thanks so kindly for putting me on here! I’m really thrilled…and an exception to the 6 month rule no less : )
I haven’t heard of most of the other blogs here, so this is some good new reading material for me too!

Wow! I’m stunned and so honored. Thank you, Joshua, for including me on this really neat list of blogs :)
joshua becker says
my pleasure. i enjoy both of your sites.
Thank you! I really love reading personal blogs on minimalism rather than dry articles. I mean it’s all interesting but it’s definitely better with some personal flavor.
joshua becker says
that’s how most people ended up at this blog during the early days. i definitely wanted to get “365 less things” on this list for that very reason.
Michael Donghia says
It’s great to see a new wave of minimalist/simplicity bloggers who are passionate about the subject. Jessica from minimalist student really found a nice niche within the simple living blogging community.
