The Dreams of a Minimalist Army

Why Minimalism is About Your Journey.

Written by Everett Bogue | Follow me on Twitter.

The last few weeks have been quite a whirlwind of activity. I’ve released an e-book, I’ve had the honor of being featured on a number of amazing blogs, such as my article on creative flow at Zen Habits recently.

I love reading the links that people send to me offering their opinions on what I’ve created.

The experience has been amazing. I’ve received many emails asking me how I did it. I’m not entirely sure, but I’d love to try and figure it out.

I like to think that it’s just writing quality work every single day. Creating value, in order to help you, is all that I think about.

I started out with a small idea: what if I quit my job, gave up everything but the essential, got on an airplane, and went for a trip. I came back with an inspiration that’s sweeping the imagination of an amazing group of people.

It’s becoming so abundantly clear that this isn’t about me at all, it’s all about you.

The dreams of a minimalist army.

The truth is that I’m just one of the many amazing people who are leading this revolution — for more of the talented folks who are blogging about being minimalist, see my blogroll.

I’ve also compiled a list of some of the newer bloggers below. Check them out! If I missed you, leave a comment and I’ll add you to the list.

You are the inspiration for the freedom of the life I’m living. You are the reason that I keep pushing for this change.

I can see this in every thank you letter I receive. I can see this in every helpful comment, and every amazing retweet of a post. We all wanted this change. We all needed to know that it was possible.

It is possible.

A list of new minimalist bloggers.

I want to give a brief shout out to some new minimalist bloggers. If I forgot you, I’m so sorry (there are so many faces to keep track of.) Please add your name in the comments and I’ll be sure to put you on the list.

This may seem like a lot of people, but remember: we’re in this together. Every person who takes the time to share their opinions, their dreams, their goals, their knowledge, is incredibly valuable.
