I’ve spent the better part of the past few days answering comments on that post, and it’s truly been an amazing experience for me. There’s a positive resounding echo that I’ve been hearing, and for that I’m so very grateful.
For the past few years, it’s obvious that I’ve struggled with my identity online. Recently I’ve been writing a lot about authenticity, and living the minimalist lifestyle. But I don’t feel like I’ve been doing either particularly well.

I’ve written about the pain of losing subscribers and have continually wrestled with the uncertainty of direction on my personal site. It’s extremely hard for me to do this, but I feel like the best option for me is to start fresh.
