I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ve written another piece for The Huffington Post!
It’s my attempt to introduce minimalist living to a more mainstream audience, and I hope you’ll give me a hand by checking it out and leaving a Comment. It may spark an interest in minimalism to some who stumble across it, and I want them to know they’re not alone–there’s a whole community of us who love living with less! :)
Need a little more incentive? Anyone who leaves a Comment on my Huffington Post piece will have a chance to win an autographed copy (or Kindle version) of my book, The Joy of Less. (My last giveaway had about 130 entries–so that’s pretty good odds!)
To enter the giveaway:
1. View my Huffington Post blog post.
2. Create a Huffington Post account (if you don’t already have one). You’ll find the “Create Account” link at the upper right corner of the page.
3. Scroll to the bottom of my Huffington Post blog post, and leave a Comment in the Comments box.
4. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know your Huffington Post username (so I know which Comment is yours), and I’ll enter you in the drawing.
I’ll keep the giveaway open until Friday, August 3 at 8pm EDT. As always, I’ll use the random number generator at Random.org to choose the winner.
I expect non-minimalist readers might find my article a little extreme, given the social norms and expectations regarding “must-have” furniture. But I hope it’ll provide some food for thought, and generate a discussion on what we can (and would prefer) to live without. The take-home message: furnish only with what fits your lifestyle, not the idealized one pictured in a shelter magazine.
Thanks in advance to all who participate; I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
(Note: Comments are closed here on this giveaway post, because the Comments must be made on The Huffington Post page. Just want to avoid confusion!)
