This year, I’ve decided to give myself a very special Christmas gift. Don’t worry: it wasn’t bought at the mall, and it won’t clutter my closet – in fact, it doesn’t take up any space at all.
I’m giving myself a digital sabbatical.
From now until January 10, I’ll be completely unplugged from the internet: no blogging, no Twitter, no email. I also won’t be logging in to moderate comments. If you’ve commented in the past, your new comments should be published automatically. Otherwise, your comments will stay in the queue and be published as soon as I’m back (I apologize for the delay, but it’s necessary to keep things spam-free!).
I’ll miss you all dearly, but I’m looking forward to some time offline – to reflect on the past year, rejuvenate for the next, and look at the world around me instead of a computer screen.
But before I sign off, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful year. I never imagined my little minimalist blog, which started 2010 with 500 subscribers, would start 2011 with nearly 5000 (and 50,000+ monthly readers). I’m thrilled beyond words that so many of you are interested in living with less!
Thank you for inspiring me, encouraging me, reading my posts, writing fabulous comments, and helping my book land on Amazon’s Home & Garden Top 10 list.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I couldn’t have done it without you, and I’m incredibly grateful for your support.
I wish you all a very happy holiday, and look forward to continuing our minimalist journey in 2011!
