A New Look

You may have noticed that my blog looks slightly different and if this is your first time seeing my blog, thanks for reading! I haven’t written a blog for a few weeks and there’s a reason for that.

I’ve been feeling a little constrained by my blog and the title. I don’t always want to write about minimalism or meditation or living simply. Sometimes I just want to write about other stuff that interests me and the other things I get enjoyment out of. So I began going down this route of completely revamping my blog, changing the domain name, changing the title, even deleting this one and starting from scratch. But on my way into work this morning I thought, does it actually matter? Just because the title and domain name is related to minimalism, doesn’t mean I can’t write about other stuff, like travel or fitness or anything else I enjoy doing. However, if I was trying to create a brand or market my blog in some way, then yes, the title and domain name is very important. But that’s not why I’m writing this blog. This blog is really an outlet for me to write and share about the things I’m doing and hopefully other people out there get some inspiration and value from that.

So where to next from here. Well I do want to continue writing about minimalism and meditation, as those things have had a significant impact on my life over the past year. But I also want to write about other things. I love to travel, explore and just do different things. I’ve got a 25k trail run in the mountains later this month, I’m going diving in early April and some friends and I are in the early stages of planning a trip across central Australia later this year, which I’m really looking forward to. I intend on writing and sharing photos of those adventures. I also nerd out quite a bit with economics and I’m currently working on a “minimalism and a consumption economy” type article, so keep an eye out for that 😉

That’s enough for now though, see you next time.
